Are you visiting or living in Cheonan and looking for a truly unique dining experience? Perhaps you have children, and you’d really love to find a place that could keep them entertained for the duration of a meal. Look no further: the Triassic Restaurant definitely manages to tick both of those boxes!
A Triassic Period themed Dinosaur Restaurant
It’s hard to miss this place if you’re walking past – there’s a giant dinosaur head on the front of the building. When you head inside, you’re going to see even more dinosaur-themed displays. We visited in December, so many of the dinosaurs were decked out with a little festive flair!
The interior of the restaurant feels like you’ve stepped into a rainforest. There’s lots of leafy greenery hanging from the ceiling, alongside palm trees, ferns, and other plants.
The menu and food
There are a range of different eating options to choose from at Triassic Restaurant. You’ll find gourmet-style meals for one, pizzas and tacos to share, and a variety of family-style plates of fried foods like chicken wings. You’ll also be served a complimentary basket of bread while you’re waiting for your meal. There’s also a comprehensive drinks menu, including both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, coffees, and more.
It’s worth noting that prices for the meals are higher than what I would expect at other restaurants serving similar styled food – for example, a dish of their rose-stone pasta was 22,500 won, and their rose curry rice was 15,500 won. In saying that, the quality of the food was surprisingly good, and the portions were large. You’re also effectively paying for a meal and entertainment with all of those amazing dinosaur displays, so I don’t think it’s a bad deal at all. If you do have leftovers, they are happy to box those up for you to take home as well.
Above, you can see the breadbasket, the rose-curry rice topped with tonkatsu and an egg, and the wings and fries platter – that one is great for sharing with a group!
