Went there for lunch with a colleague. Very quick service, good food, reasonable prices. The only draw-back was the dull atmosphere, we were seated at a table in a sort of cubbyhole at the back of the restaurant with no natural light and where we were effectively invisible to the staff and it was really dark. Mind you, they did serve us alright and checked regularly. The atmosphere wasn't really much of a drawback, and given that you can have a delicious meal for less than a tenner in Soho, this is definitely a restaurant that I'd visit again!

A korean friend of ours took us here, so that was a good start (we all live in London).

The actual restaurant is pretty good - nice atmosphere - mad owner (in a very good way). Very welcoming.
Immediately happy that around 90% of the clients were Korean :)

Our friend ordered for us, so I'm not sure of a lot of the names but the food was superb. I'm a big fan of kimchi, and we had 4 types (cabbage, radish etc). Phwoar.

We also had Samgyeopsal - barbecued meat at the table. They have these light/chimneys over each table that take away the smoke, so you just lift your meat off the barbecue, wrap in in lettuce leaf (with sauce and korean slaw (sorry!)). Very very tasty.

I'd never been before, but this is now on our list of places to return to regularly. Although it's in teh west end, it's not particularly touristy (unless all the Koreans were tourists!).

We couldn't finish our food, yet the bill was extremely good - especially for this bit of London (around £22 per head - and there were many dishes!).

Fab.

A little restaurant with few tables , but nice.
The menu is large, the quality of the food is very good and service very quick.
Price are ok and for lunch time you can choise one of special menus.
A place where I will come back

Tried a Korean soup which looked amazing in the pic. When it came to the table had 2 stripes of beef, completely tasteless noodles and no vegetables at all. Definitely would do better buying a pot noodles at asda!

First time going to a korean BBQ so me and my friend was slightly confused. Told them we weren't sure how to order and how it works. Think a new guy was taking our order cause he looked even more confused than us.
Guy recommended two dishes for us two to share, but it wasn't enough. In total we ordered one main meal to share, and four plates of meat for the korean bbq.
Food was really nice. Would definitely go back. Someone recommended us to go to Arang. But staff was a bit rude, not very friendly. But food was nice, there was a few other stuff on the menu looks good and wanted to try.
