easy access, yummy, price now 7500₩ - Edit

Follow the directions and find the building for Asian studies (101) and look where many people come in and out (because it's not just the buffet but also other canteens) and buy a ticket at the machine. Basic Korean should help you enough to get the ticket without much struggle. Drop it in the clear box at the buffet and dig in!
It tastes really good, too! There aren't many veggies though

Pros: inexpensive, variety, taste is good

Cons: not a whole lot of veggies

a saviour on campus! - Edit

Ate here every weekday for the entirety of July: amazing selection of dishes everyday - each dish from the tea to the salad, to the soup and range of banchan was flavourful and unique.

Everyday there is a choice between two types of rice - rice with beans or plain white rice, sometimes also including beansprouts - Kimchi, a soup dish, mixed salad, lettuce & Perilla leaves.
Everyday the other dishes change: sometimes there's quite a bit of fried food, usually mushroom coated in a batter; mock meat; tteokbokki; steamed root vegetables; pajeon; usually something involving mushroom or tofu on the daily, and of course seaweed.
Some days there's also fresh fruit and digestive tea served as "punch".

Good enough to steer non-veggie friends away from the (cheaper) non-veggie food served in the same building and keep them.

The ladies who work in the veggie section are all lovely and it runs well.

Price is 7,000₩ but 6,000₩ with an SNU ID.

Pros: lots of choice , Always filling and fresh

Cons: can be quite oily

Best option for vegans! - Edit

7000 won for non-SNU faculty and 6000 won for SNU faculty. I'm so blessed to have this buffet in my school. Definitely worth the money! All of the menus are vegan. Quite crowded these days!

Good Vegetarian Buffet - Edit

I have lunch here every week day. The menu is different on each day except for Mixed bean rice, plain rice and a vegetable soup which are available every day. There are at least 6 other items to choose from including a mildly sweet drink made from rice or fruit or vegetable.

Though I eat here because I work in the campus I would recommend it for any one looking for a sumptuous meal.

Love coming here! - Edit

For 7000 won you can eat as much as you want from 11:30-13:30.
Food is "clean" and buffet offers soups, protein, rice dishes, vegetables and more. Menu changes weekly.

Student cafe for Seoul National University sponsered by the government to promote more vegetarian/vegan food. Buffet cafe is open to anyone.
