The app also shows prices of restaurants in several currencies, such as US Dollar, Korean Won, Japanese Yen, Hong Kong Dollar, Philippine Peso, New Taiwan Dollar, and a lot more.
2. Sort by area or cuisine
Looking for good ol’ Korean food or miss the ones from home? Use the WAUG app to find restaurants that offer Korean BBQ, fried chicken, pizza, Indian curry, pho, sushi, tacos, and more!
If you’re not really looking for something specific, you can also filter the listings according to location and find the ones that are near you.
To help foreign users navigate the foodie paradise that’s Seoul, we translate our partner restaurants’ menu and description to English and Japanese.
4. Check restaurant reviews, ratings, and user recommendations
If one of the dining options on WAUG caught your attention but you’re unsure if it’s really that good, just take a look at the reviews and ratings left by our users. Most of the feedback are from locals in Korea, but they’re automatically translated to help you understand.
5. Instant confirmation & flexible voucher use
You’ll be able to book a lot of restaurants instantly, which means that you’d be able to visit as soon as you’d like. Moreover, most vouchers that we issue are flexible in terms of usage and date, so if anything comes up, you can reschedule your visit another time.
