With Asian dining, when the place is so good and deservedly popular you've no real choice but to begrudgingly accept that you've got to wait in line to enjoy the experience. When the dining experience is poor in terms food, service and value you feel royally ripped off. If you spend £60 on a meal and still feel hungry afterwards there is something not right. Our experinece was this. We decided to try it out having been told about it by a friend. We had to wait 15 minutes to be seated (having been told on the phone in advance that they don't take bookings). This wasn't an issue as we had time to mull over the menu and decide on the 3 mains and 4 sides we were going to order. We were seated in a both for 4... unfortuantely I was with my wife and there was already a party of 3 there which meant we had to share a table. Again this is common in some Asian eateries - however the annoying thing with this place is that it tries to be a cross between a Wagamamma and a Mango Tree. The prices aren't anywhere as cheap as a noodle bar and the service is no where near as efficient. Moving as side to this. The owners have packed way too many tables in - there is literally a 2 ft gap between you and the next table to which guests and waiting staff have to shimmy through. The result is that your food is in danger of being knocked off whenever anyone comes or goes, and also you can hear and smell your neighbour with an unnerving degree of intimacy. Lastly DO NOT under any circumstance order the Budae Jjigae - a spicy hotpot of kimchee, tofu, noodles, beef and "sausage". The "sausage" is Spam - yes that is Spam meat, the variety that isn't even served to prisoners any more. There also was hardly any beef or noodle for it to be described as a beef/noodle dish (think of half half the noodle content of a Pot noodle and you will have an idea of the noodles in a main dish).
