“Fun, relaxed, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

Other reviews have well described this small, informal restaurant. The service is a bit hap hazard, but very friendly and the food is really good and something a bit different.

“A hidden gem......”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

Fantastic Korean food, friendly and welcoming, unpretentious, fast service - what's not to like!
Will be visiting again. Didn't need to book but will do next time - this lovely bistro can't stay secret for much longer...
Small is definitely beautiful in this case!

“Very average”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

Made a reservation here in advance based on reviews on TA. They were fully booked on the Saturday night but gave us a one hour slot which worked for us as we had things planned.
We arrived to a completely empty restaurant. Another couple arrived shortly after us with no reservation but were told that all tables were booked even though there were 5 out of 6 empty tables!
Service was friendly but not very attentive.
Food lacked authenticity but then having eaten in Korea and a few excellent Korean restaurants in London, we are biased. Maybe we came on their off night, but definitely not sure we agree with the hype of the other reviews!

“A truly fantastic restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

I had three meals in this lovely restaurant during my stay in York. Unlike many oriental restaurants in the UK, they serve very authentic Korean cuisine. Oshibi is small but warm and cozy, with beautiful butterfly orchid on the window-sill, and the people in the restaurant are very friendly and helpful. I tried bulgogi beef, octopus, squid and crispy seaweed and they are all very tasty.
