Luscious textures, tastes and presentations. A new age Korean restaurant with the juiciest Galbi, tastiest Chopshe ( excuse my spelling of this exquisite dish), the crispest chilli chicken and the sweetest Korean pancake. The last star is sadly amiss as it is very slightly lacking...More

I have been to different Korean restaurants in London, Gaon is unfortunately a really bad one I have to say. The portion is very small, and the ingredients are not as fresh, not to mention how expensive it is!!!! Any other korean restaurants are far...More

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and

such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
