The food here is authentic and tasty. You can cook your meat at the table. Make sure the meat they bring you is what you ordered. We were a bit unsure. Food is freshly made and there is a good selection of desserts.

Lovely atmosphere, great quality of food, and the staff were very accommodating and even wrote down the names of dips and sauces that we liked most so I could buy them. Would definitely go again!

Description
The march of very, smart, modern and intriguing eastern restaurants in London continues apace with the arrival of Koba, handy for the Dominion, the British Museum, and all the booty of furniture-design-land around NoHo. Koba offers a lovely dining room with minimalist decor in a style that's very now. The Korean menu includes its speciality of table BBQ, as well as beautifully-presented dishes like Samsaek milssam(korean style wrapped pancakes with meat & vegetables stuffing) to start. Next go for the BBQ of Koba modeum gooi(grand assortment of meat, prawn & vegetables) or try something different such as yookhwei dolsot bibimbap(steam rice with raw beef & vegetables in a korean stone pot) or busut mandoo jeongol(mushroom casserole with dumpling & various mushrooms).
