Genesis Lounge – Signature Dining, Hotel Shilla The executive Chef of Genesis Lounge, Mr. S.B. Kang presents sincerity by reinterpreting the recipe for Genesis's own style based on natural ingredients from mountain, sea and land. We can find the value and new meaning for life from his journey of flavors. * Amuse-bouche * Seasonal Raw Fish * Korean Beef with Jeok * Burdock and Beef Noodle Soup * Chestnut Ice cream * Pear with Assam Tea, Yam Marshmallow The restaurant is accepting and focusing on just one reservation for the very private and upscale fine dining in very artistic space. Thanks to Mr. J.H. Lee, manager and his team members for their top notch service and re-interpretation on cuisine. The menu changes periodically and I am looking forward to the Master Chef, Kang’s next journey in next season with deep support.

It's a fancy hotel and super clean. The people at the hotel are also nice. Came here to attend an event held by KTO (Korea Tourism Organization). It was held in one of the halls and it was nice inside. The foods and drinks were also good 👌 definitely will try to stay here someday.
