Fish and chips, especially good ones, are hard to find in Korea but Savoy is amazing by any standards. It's been open for awhile now but over the last few weeks they've renovated the place. At the time of writing this (March '13) they have two branches the very small original and the new branch, which is an "English pub" style bar. They are right beside each other. The new branch has a really cool vibe but don't go expecting cheap beer. It's about 8,000 for a pint. They serve Guinness and whiskey (Jameson) though.
The menu is in English and it's a pretty small menu. For 8,000 you can get a plate of fish and chips and they are amazing. Portions are quite small, 3 small pieces of fish and a handful of chips but there worth it. The batter, chips, and tartar are amazing and every time I go I contemplate getting a second round.
Last weekend, I got steak and chips for 13,000. They steak was good, it was pretty small and needed a serious dose of seasoning. I swear it had no salt or pepper on it (sacrilege)! It came with some grilled courgette (zucchini).
On your first visit stick to the fish and chips! You won't get any this good anywhere else in Korea.
Excuse the photos my camera is rubbish. You should get an idea of the portion size though.
