    Would really recommend, reasonably priced and delicious food! Sat outside on a summer evening - it was lovely. Make sure to sit inside if you want the Gogi grill.

    We went with no expectations. We turned up early due to travel times. We were accommodated with no questions. The staff asked if we had been before & as we hadn’t, explained how it works. The food turned up promptly & was delicious. We were conscious of the fact that we hadn’t eaten Korean before but needn’t have worried. Yes it was spiced but it wasn’t overpowering so even our daughter, who is quite a bland & fussy eater, ate it no problem. Will definitely go backz

    Meat was very grisly and - sorry - both of us got upset stomach after the whole experience(we didn't eat anything before lunch, so it's definitely courtesy of Gogi). The lady didn't even suggest to get salad leaves and garlic/chilies with bbq (I assume they come with the main dish as in Korea). We've been over a year ago-the standards definitely went down...

    Having been here a few times, we have always enjoyed the food & dining experience and were glad to come back again. This time unfortunately it wasn’t the best experience as we felt quite unwelcome dining at 2pm. As we wanted a good lunch, we ordered a filling lunch but were impolitely warned that we just had 10 minutes before 3pm to eat everything up and telling us about the staff breaks starts at 3pm. One of the staff or manager started to randomly cook everything in order to rush us out. This we felt was very unwelcoming, unprofessional & rushed as we had high expectation of Gogi. With respect to their break time, would have been a good gesture if they mentioned it to us so we can finish everything in due time instead of walking out with a few takeaway boxes of what we couldn’t finish. Food wise the food still lives up to it expectation, much prise to the chefs. But unfortunately the service, vibe and ambiance let the whole experience down. Quite the disappointment experience and will certainly hope they improve as the concept and food is quite admirable which makes these restaurants unique & special. Whether we will come back or not would be another story.

    Main attraction was the grill to cook your own food (as opposed to many other Korean restaurants that offer 'barbecue'). Food was top notch, great location and ambience. Service could have been a little more hands-on at times.

    Bbq amount of food is not worth the amount of money paid for it, specially because doesn't include any side with it. Just paying for the meat.

    We arrived at 5:30 p.m. and were the first to be seated. Soon after we were seated, we ordered our food and drinks. The Korean fried chicken was delicious and arrived on time, as did other items we ordered apart from but the egg fried rice which took an hour to arrive. I had to remind the waitress twice that we had ordered it. It eventually arrived, followed by the manager, who began grilling our chicken for us. While cooking after seeing our puzzled faces he informed us that the tables had a 1.5-hour time limit on Fridays. I had to remind him that the rice had only just arrived after two requests. I told him we were also waiting for the rice to accompany the chicken. I thought the manager was very rude for rushing us especially after the rice took so long to arrive. I also ordered two chicken boa buns at the start, which arrived very cold, as if they had been sitting in the fridge for hours. Because I wasn't expecting them to be so cold, I requested if they could be replaced for anything else. (Every Bao I've ever had has been hot and delicious.) So this was a surprise and very disappointing. The manager was non apologetic and gave me no alternatives, apart from it can only be heated in the microwave. This is something I said no to because the lettuce would have wilted and the Mayo on top would have tasted bad heated. No refund or exchange offered. (Very un-accommodating) The female waitresses were cheerful and welcoming, but the male staff did not make us feel welcome at all. I removed the service charge and for the reasons stated above, I would never return and would not recommend.

    Sad to say after recommendations I had the worst experience here. The staff were pretty blunt and didn’t explain the menus or how to enjoy the experience of cooking the meat yourself. The food was awful, the meat was such poor quality, it looked and tasted awful. Would never go back
