    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

    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!

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

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

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

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

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

    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...

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

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