Best Buffet Place on the Han River, Seoul


Scrumptious buffet. Han River. Now that’s a combination you definitely can’t miss. Whether you’re living in South Korea or just visiting for a while, you’ll definitely be delighted as you feast and marvel at the view of the iconic Hangang.

The restaurant to visit is called Chavit Cuisine (채빛퀴진), which brands itself as a floating buffet spot in the Han River. It boasts an elegant dining room and various buffet stations, from starters and hot dishes, to live grills, pasta, and dessert! Unlike the buffet offered by the Han River Eland Cruise (which is also satisfying, by the way!), this restaurant has more dishes to offer. Take a look at the extensive selection that Chavit Cuisine has:

1. Appetizers


Start your lunch or dinner by the Han River with a great selection of salads! Some of the staples here include Caesar, Salmon, and Seafood, which you can pair with some flaky bread, cold cuts, and smoked salmon.

2. Sushi


As a sushi lover, I really liked the spread at Chavit Cuisine. Some of the variants that you can have here are salmon, tuna, and scallops rolls, as well as fresh sashimi!

3. Steak & Seafood


Fancy some surf n’ turf? This buffet restaurant on the Han River is the place to visit! Their juicy prawns and meaty crabs, as well as their perfectly-seasoned grilled lamb and steak are the most popular items, so you’ll surely be visiting the station more than once. Or twice!

4. International Spread


If you like Indian, Italian, and Chinese food, you’ll be delighted to know that Chavit Cuisine offers these cuisines’ representative dishes. They make pasta and pizza, as well as Indian curry and naan.


For Chinese food, they usually have fried rice, sweet and sour pork, stir-fried crabs, and steamed fish!

5. Dessert

Finally, some sweet treats! End your buffet experience by the Han River with a slice (or two!) of walnut cake, cheese cake, macaron, and ice cream!

But don’t just take my word for it. Here are some reviews from WAUG users who booked this restaurant on Hangang:

The food was all delicious. The view of the Han River was good and the hall… was quiet… All the friends I went with were satisfied. I made a reservation on WAUG and booked for cheap. You can park your car at Banpo Han River Parking Lot.

The variety was wide, and the food overall was more than I expected.
