Was excited to try this place as I love Korean food. The place was cute, and cozy. I found the price a bit high, and the portions small. Kimchi which is always included in every Korean meal was charged. The kimchi was good, but the standard cabbage kimchi did not tastes home made. I had the bimbimbap, and my husband had the spicy squid. Both dishes were pretty good, but the kimchi jigae was very small, and average. I'm giving it 3 star as it was good, we will be back, but over priced, small portions, and not the biggest selection.

We passed by the shop and decided to give it a try for Tues lunch. We were warmly welcomed by the waiters and quickly got our seats.
I've tried few Korean restaurants in UK and I found the foods here are the most authentic. All of us are impressed by the beef hotpot. Tasty, fresh and value for money. Other dishes are ok but a bit down by the jajangmeon with the flat big thick noodles.
The price is affordable.
Would recommend it.

We visited this restaurant after a family member had recommended it. As somebody who has experience with Japanese and Korean food I was very excited to see that you can grill your own meat and veg on a grill inlaid in the table. We ordered the Kimchi set which was well worth it and a plate of mixed meats. It was fantastic! The service was good, as they kept coming and grilling the meat for us. Took a while to order another round of drinks, but other than that we were very happy. We will be visiting again soon :)

Having been to Korea, I was interested to see if this place lived up to its reputation and was not dissapointed.
We were 3 people and having the set menu £27,50 per head resulted in a table that was full with various dishes and side orders. I recognised many of teh cuts of meat from my time in Korea and was pleased to see they were cooked for you in the middle of the table and also cut up, just as in Korea.

The Cass beet and rice wine is also a good touch.

I can fuilly recomnmend this place as being as true to Korean cuisine as you can get.
