Japanese
Kintan is the first yakiniku-style restaurant in London. Yakiniku, literally meaning ‘grilled meat’, is the Japanese take on the Korean barbecue and one of the most popular dining styles in Japan. Being Japanese, Yakiniku restaurants employ a little engineering ingenuity to provide smokeless table grills with subterranean smoke extraction so that the flavour of the food stays on your plate and off of your clothes.

Excellent quality as usual, always satisfied at Kintan. Felt quite safe as there were screens between tables and safety measures were followed. Happy hour is always a good deal.

We dined in this calm atmosphere with tasty food and great service. Even more great value for money with the "Eat in offer."

Restaurant had a lovely ambience, food was great, staff were friendly, and the experience of doing the bbq was so fun! They even bought out two free cakes for my two friends 25th birthdays and sang happy birthday! The only thing is, when making my booking on the phone I had made an enquiry about cocktails as we wanted to order cocktails, and it was happy hour all day on Monday, although I called and made the booking and asked about cocktails I was not made aware that they are currently not doing cocktails as they have run out of ingredients, we are cocktail girls! It would have been nice to be made aware of this upon booking because it was my friends 25th birthdays and they had already selected the cocktails they wanted before arrival to the restaurant so it was a let down. I would still recommend! Even if people don’t drink it’s all about the service.

Kintan is an amazing place if you like BBQ. It's been our favourite for about a year now. The menu has great variety, although we do often order the same thing, the garlic fried rice is an absolute best! Also I'd recommend going there during the happy hour as the drinks are way cheaper.

Growing up going to yakinikus with my family I was very excited to hear about kintan in the UK. I was so excited to know that I could have this experience with my boyfriend. Definitely something new to try, and new customers Should definitely try my all time favourite, beef tongue.

I’ve been to Kintan pre Covid and loved it but I came back on the 5th for my birthday. The food was amazing as always. The changed they made and the standard of cleaning was really good. They’ve put up load of screen dividers, and had designated areas for dirty plates to go so no one had to lean across you.

It would be better if the staff can change the BBQ plate as after a while the plate gets dirty and burned, which affects the taste of the food.
