    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.

    Great Korean lunch

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

    Very unpleaseant experience. Pricy and tasteless. Staff rude. Will not come back. 2 restaurants next door were much better.

  • Karn R.

    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 staffs were the rudest I've ever encountered. Never again.

    Rob Keye · February 2, 2014

    Unpleasant experience. Waitress was incredibly rude and spiteful. Never again. Food quality has also gone downhill.

    Chris Browne · February 2, 2014
  • Scott G.

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

    The croquettes, nigiri sushi and yukimi were delicious, and so was the miso soup they served as a yummy!

    Amazing Korean food! Very, veeeeryyyy tasty!

    Anna Mashanlo · August 27, 2013

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

    Rafael Paredes · August 21, 2013
  • Marcel D.

    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...

    Marcel Daems · June 10, 2013
  • fai k.

    Bibimbub and tokpokkii is a good choice

    Fantastic food. But try to avoid being seated in the basement.

    Marco Henkel · December 7, 2012

    The BBQ beef is to die for!

    Dropped by for dinner and still hungry after mains. Not pleased.

    Awesome hidden karaoke rooms in basement.

    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

    Selene Liszka · April 16, 2012
  • Anh N.

    The food is ok, a little salty, staff are quite rude.

    Anh Nguyen · March 18, 2012
  • F L.

    Small meals for the price.

    F Low · March 3, 2012
  • Greg W.

    Small serves for main meals, so def only go during lunch special 12-3pm. Power cut out too!

    Greg W · March 3, 2012
  • Jennie N.

    Try bibimbap, rice cake in chilli sauce, Kim chi & beef stew, slice ox tongue and spicy belly pork. All delicious & highly recommended

    Sorry to say this but i think there was too much MSG to eat. my sister got an allergic on their food.

    Recommended stuff to order: bibimbap, kimchi pancake, rice cake and one of the hot pots. Alongside a bottle, or two, of Soju. :D

    Jonathan Choo · November 2, 2010
  • Gal Z.

    Loads of flavours for little money. Hot pot it while it's hot.

    Gal Zohar · March 2, 2010
  • Carol C.

    Its spicy BBQ chicken and BBQ ox tough is absolutely exquisite.Go there early as there is always a big queue!

    Lunch specials are only £4.50 and lots to choose from - vegie bibimbap, potato glass noodles, spicy chicken/squid etc and rice. Most people eating in were having hot pots.

    Fantastic Korean restaurant with great specials. Why not ask what the specials are in Korean? - "오늘 스페셜 메뉴는 뭐에요?" [Onul "special menu"nun moyeyo?]
