We didn´t know this place before, but in our way to the metro, we see one day and another this place was always full with a queue outside. We decided to try this mixed japanase-korean restaurant on a friday night (previous reservation highly reccommended) and like our first time in a korean restaurant we decided to try the Japanese and korean set for 2 person (25 both). We reassured our previous love for the japanese cuisine with a few nice surprises in the korean appetizers and dishes. The food is a real taste, not the typical japanese style for european customers, and the service was fast and very kind. The set was well enough for 2 persons and the price surprising for london. The only we can complain is about the dessert menu (only 2 options), but we are looking forward to taste another dishes from this restaurant.

A great place to enjoy good value Japanese and Korean food. The Korean BarBQ dishes are well worth a try.

Awesome awesome awesome - delicious hot fresh tasty and amazingly cheap korean and japanese food. Yes you need to book, yes it's crowded and cramped, yes the service can be a bit hectic and yes it is a bit grubby - toilets especially - but the food is fantastic, the hot sake is plentiful and the bill is tiny!

This is probably the restaurant that I go to the most often - and I eat out a lot.

Dreaming of Kimchi, Sake, bibimbap, sashimi combo, spicy meat soup and tempura!

Go, Eat, Enjoy.

I used to dine here often but it's been a while since I moved too far! Great to find out this place is as good as ever. We popped in without a reservation and were kindly offered a table after making some rearrangements. We enjoyed two delicious, fantastically seasoned seafood stews. We'll be back soon.
