Taste and Ambience Important to Korean DinersAccording to a survey by a local food service magazine, service and ambience are becoming important considerations for Korean diners.
Hotels and Restaurants, a leading industry magazine, asked 1,330 office workers in metropolitan Seoul on what they look for in a restaurant.
Taste came in first with 30.1 percent, down 21.3 percent from two years ago. Service and ambience came in second and third at 17.5 percent and 15 percent, respectively. Cleanliness was rated least important by Seoulites at 11.5 percent.
