Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Read the reviews about this place so thought me and my friend would go check it out plus we are both Chinese. We ordered our food the old women that surved us was really rude and off with us. We even ordered water which I...had to asked five times for even tho the people on other tables were getting water drinks before us and fast they didn't have to wait for there drinks like we did. Food was ok we had the BBQ £28 seems overpriced for me plus the bad service doesn't inspire us to go back again so go at your own risk.More

A surprise find which turned out to be an absolute gem! As we love Korean BBQs we are always picky with the food; it definitely rose to the expectation! The food was absolutely gorgeous, with beautiful cuts full of flavour and fresh. We were definitely...impressed and will return without a doubt! They also have a nice selection of veggies, which makes every plate even tastier. Very curious to try their hot pots and other dishes as well now!More

Food is great. However it's MASSIVELY over priced at £28.80 plus drinks. There are lots of other really good buffets for half that price

Amazing food and amazing service. Best Korean BBQ I’ve had in the UK! The squid was extra tasty! If I lived in Manchester I would eat here all the time! We will be back!

They prices in Azuma went up by a lot, at the moment they charge £28.80 per person and that is way too much for what they offer, don't forget you will need to pay for drinks as well

The general staff were extremely helpful, friendly and accommodating, the food was delicious- we recommend the korean BBQ and get yourself a bottle of the Baijiu. Dont drive there- youll want to have a couple of shots of the special strong stuff with Godfrey! He...was hilarious. Best host; he made us feel very welcome- we will come back.More

Me and my bf walked in without booking (I would reccomend to book) and had to choose between hotpot and Korean BBQ - if you were more than 2 you could have both - and it was really good. Good price for unlimited food, but...beware that they charge you for leftover food! Yummy food and good service!More

I went to azuma to celebrate my gcse results with my family. We were greeted by friendly staff and sat down at a large table. The service was really good as all the waiting staff were so attentive and lovely. The food was amazing and...the hands on experience was really fun. We ordered the hotpot and the bbq and they were both so delicious, especially the beef. They also catered well to my siblings’ nut allergies. The atmosphere was really lively. We will definitely visit again.More

late afternoon and we required korean bbq. Azuma was clean and v tidy with a warm welcome from attentive staff. I didnt see the other menu as we'd opted for korean bbq as soon as we entered. £24 ph includes bottomless soft drinks and as...much thinly sliced and marinated meat and seafood as your stomach will bear. Highlights were squid tentacles, spicy pork belly, chicken hearts and chicken gizzards. Our waiter was fantastic (Godfrey?) and helped us navigate though a brand new experience for us. a grill in the centre of the table, he showed us what to do and how to get the best results. Great fun, very tasty food and good value. I could see some other customers with a huge tureen...looked like hotpot, so will back for that at some point. Many thanks!More
