Though supposedly Korean, this place serves a combination of Northeastern Asian foods. You could find tempura and miso soup from Japan, fried glass noodles from China, and also their very renowned kimchi and roast pork.

Much better than I expected anyway. Fried rice cakes is absolutely a favourite.

Had quite a few dishes with a few friends and all were very good. Atmosphere is alright. Nothing special and prices are what they are in London.

I would eat here again as the food was authentic and everything tasted very good.

have been there a few times for birthday/farewell celebrations with large groups of friends and everyone of us enjoyed it very much (including some korean friends)! food was outstanding and so was service. do expect to pay a little extra for the quality as it is one of the high end korean restaurants and it is defo worth it for special occasions!

I recommend this restaurant as a new experience if you have not tried Korean food before. The service is good, maybe even over-attentive. If possible, ask advice so you avoid our mistake which was choosing too many complicated dishes and no plain boiled rice to accompany and "dilute" them. Probably best to ask for tap-water at the start and save money on drinks to spend on a refreshing tea or cinnamon punch afterwards. The complimentary oranges at the end of the meal were delightful.

Went for lunch, service was appalling, had to go and ask for waitress to ordered. They bought food to us without telling us what it was. We received 1 main meal without rice, so by the time we got the rice it was cold. 20 minutes later another 2 meals came out, then once we had been there over an hour we got the last meal. Told them we waited too long, they said sorry & that was it. Wouldn't waste my money or time in visiting there again, food wasn't worth the wait whatsoever!

If you want another Korean restaurant, there is a nice one a minute or so away called Myung Ga on Kingly Street.
