Famous for authentic flavours and creative interpretations of time-honoured recipes, the fine-dining traditional Korean restaurant La Yeon at The Shilla Seoul hotel has been awarded three Michelin stars for a third consecutive year.



Opening in 2013, the restaurant has earned global attention for its service, ambience, and sophisticated menu to bring diners back to ancient Korea. The three-star recognition is a testament to the team’s pursuit of culinary excellence. 

The restaurant has distinguished itself with premium, Korean-grown ingredients procured from exclusive sources around the country, while its menus are refreshed every three months to reflect the changing seasons and produce, placing emphasis on freshness and provenance. 

Led by executive chef Kim Sung Il, the traditional recipes passed down over generations and revive these techniques in creative ways. Their commitment to excellence extends to the speciality cookware to reveal the pure flavours and ingredients.

“It is an exceptional honour to be acknowledged by the Michelin Guide for a third consecutive year,” says Kim. 

“In recent years, Korean cuisine has gained recognition for its seasonal flavours and refined techniques. This latest Michelin honour is a validation of our team’s commitment to preserving and showcasing traditional Korean recipes.”
