    Great place, now closed. I managed to get in here recently, having wanted to go for ages. Was very sad to walk past recently and see they've now closed down. It was a great place!

    Excellent combination of Korean and Japanese food. Meals for two people, with lots of food, from just 26 £. Raw beef bibimbap it's just delicious! Book in advance! It's a tiny crowded place.

    My favourite restaurant in London! Amazing selection of Korean and Japanese cuisine. Staff really organised and friendly. Unfortunately due to a small space it's quite difficult to book a table

    A busy little restaurant but the wait is worth it. The set meal A (mixed Korean and Japanese) provides lots of food for 2. The tofu is also delicious. I recommend it!

    Good quality and surprisingly lots of it, considering paid £20 per person including a beer.. Recommend the set meal (B or C). Need to book in advance. Can't wait to return!!

    Good restaurant, great food, very very affordable dishes, the food comes pretty quickly... The fish is awesome, probably the best sushi restaurant I've ever been in London. Highly recommended.

    If you don't know what you're doing, I advise choosing the Korean 'D' (I think) menu for 2. Also, the sake drink is interestingly strong...Dotori is my new local favourite!

    The raw beef dolsot bibimbap was the best be had in London! The kimchee pancake was another winner! Make sure you book a table or you'll miss out!

    The best Japanese and Korean food you will find in London. Be sure to book ahead! Takeaway available if you can't get a seat. Collection only.

    The set menus are delicious and fantastic value - couldn't believe what we got for the price - 5 courses, £23 for two people! Top spot.

    The best Japanese/Korean food in the area! Be prepared to wait long for a table. It's best to call and book in advance! Highly recommended!

    Possibly the best Korean in London. Very well priced. The tempura prawns and beef bulgogi are always a winning choice.

    Vegetarian bento box. Oh. My. Lord. I want to marry the chef RIGHT NOW, it is THAT good. Jesus, the tofu… please just take my money, take it, TAKE IT!!!

    Finally, a traditional bulgogui. The food in general was great and it is not expensive! I will definitely return to this place.

    Delicious - the raw beef bibimbap was lush. The best I've ever had. Kim chi jeon starter also yummy.

    Excellent food and service, but the very small restaurant is way too full, because people also pick up ordered food, so it's a coming and going all the time...

    The seafood Yaki Soba takes ages to make and you will get only 2 pieces of squid, 2 mussels and 5 prawns.

    The raw beef bibambap is heavenly, esp with the hot pepper sauce- not too spicy, just enough kick!

    I probably did not know what Korean food tasted before I came to this restaurant: tasteful dishes and tapas in a modernly decorated setting.
