“First time Korean meal”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

First time I had visited a Korean restaurant so unsure what to expect.
Food was delicious, closer in spice levels to schechuan than cantonese, but with different presentation and dishes than a chinese.
Location pretty convenient for Oxford circus one way and theatre land the other.
Some of the freindliest staff I have ever met

“Korean Hospitality at its Best”

Never eaten Korean before, so a new experience. Food excellent and varied. Each course cooked fresh in open kitchen. Staff attentive, informative and friendly. Overall an excellent meal and service - go for something different and enjoy.

“One of the best Korean restaurants in London”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Beautifully presented, tasty and good quality food. Three of us had the dinner deal each and it was extremly good value for money (one starter and one main dish for £12). We loved Red chicken, sea food pancakes and Bulgogi! We also had Tofu Panacotta and Korean pancakes for dessert which was lovely (Tofu Pana cotta was ace!!). The service was very attentive and friendly, but it felt a bit too much at times. Overall, it was a pleasant evening with lovely food and I would definitely go back to this Korean restaurant.

“Brilliant new Korean”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Our previous favourite Korean place went downhill over the past year so we decided it was time to find a new one. This place is fantastic, incredible value (the £12 dinner deal in the evening is something you usually only find at lunch time), and lovely service. Very fresh ingredients and beautifully presented. We went three times over the course of a week and even received a special valued customer card that gives a further 20% discount. I'm not surprised to read other reviews from people who returned more than once. Tell your friends about it.

“Great”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Great tasty food, pleasant atmosphere and good service.
Lunch was pretty good value too.
The only thing I didn't like was the included (obligatory) tip.
I would have tipped anyway because the service was good, I just find that a bit arrogant and pushy.
