    Food is below mediocre, I wouldn't even have know if was korean food had I not been told that's how bad it was. The barbecue is like stir fried which is a laugh and everything else was bland.

    The dishes were not that bad, but they still need to improve them and the waiters should be more reactive to their customers.

    Set B for 2 recommended. Pork and kimchi stew, rice cake in sweet chili sauce, kimchi, rice and drinks for just £35. Best Korean experience in London. Must try!

    Ask for the sundubu jiigae (hot spicy tofu broth). Hits the spot everytime!

    The food is rather good, staff helpful enough. Be prepared to have to stand outside waiting for a table during busy periods.

    Try the Marinated beef & Kimchi stew. It feeds 2 for £22.00. You get a free liter of tea!

    Very disappointing. The food is not bad, and I do believe it's fresh but strangely enough there wasn't much taste to it. The price was so not worth it. Very, very disappointing...

    One of my favorites, most of the entrees are under £7. It is very authentic, I like beef bulgogi. Tea is free but tepid, you get one side dish free – the only problem is the crowd of foreign students
