Lovely dinner with my rather expert in Korean food family - the service was top notch, and we (we sort of mostly being me) enjoyed the spicy pork bao so much we ordered it again. Delightful.

We didn't know Korean cuisine, so this was a new experience, and a good one. The staff made us feel at home, and explained any dish we didn't understand. The mic of main courses and boxed lunches (similar to a Japanese bento) was good. Three of us had Korean beer, which we enjoyed, and one had a glass of white wine (forget which, but a solid mainstream one). We'll definitely go again.

Fuimos a comer y todo fue perfecto. Los camareros muy atentos (uno hablaba español) y la carta más que interesante. Los precios están en la media de lo que es Londres. La comida es deliciosa y de primera calidad. Seguramente volveremos.

We ordered a bibimbap, mackerel gui and spicy pork for our mains which were all delicious :) the barley creme brulee didnt taste much of barley but was still great!
The staff were extra welcoming and made our meal a relaxing and enjoyable one :)

The food was great but to be honest the service was not good - waiters were not attentive + we ordered vegetarian dumplings and they brought out beef dumplings - which my vegetarian friend noticed only after having taken a bite. And then they charged us for it! Kind of annoying.

The only reason why I've put food and value at 4 stars is because it's a pricier than the usual Korean places you'd go to. Their KFC was great (crispy!) but there wasn't much sauce on it.

I took my sister out for dinner and for two of us, the bill came up to £78 - though we were greedy as we ordered 2 sides, 2 tapas, 2 mains and one dessert.

Despite the price, I'd go back again! The service was great and the staff were super friendly. Thanks for a great dinner :)

A great Korean find in Notting Hill - The bipmbap was spicy and tasty. My spicy 'paleo-friendly' chicken sizzling plate was mouth-wateringly good and the spider summer rolls were brilliant. The staff were attentive and kind.

Very good food, but the service is too fast, you don’t get the time to take a good look at the menu. It feels like we need to eat and leave even if the restaurant was half empty. Too bad because the food is excellent !

I have been to Bullgogi several times because I like the food and it's local. Our dinner was delicious but the service overall was poor. They got our order wrong , only brought one main course so that needed to go back while my companion's meal was prepared. There was no apology offered at any point. I feel really disappointed.

Excellent food but service very slow although the staff were very polite and helpful. Apparently the kitchen was very busy and my main dish arrived 15 minutes before my partner's Bulgogi which was not ideal. However, a welcome addition to the neighbourhood.

The quality of the food was average. The dumplings had uncooked dough at the extremity. It made me think of standardised food which was re-heated in a microwave.
The buns fillers were not nice to the palate. In general the menu was quite standardised. I thought the design and the decoration of the place were very hurban and I like them but they had the wrong choice of music on, unsophisticated and sometimes too loud trying to appeal to a youngish crowd. The service was good and the staff tried to make recommendations. They were very prompt.

This was our second visit, the food was simply delicious and very nicely presented. It was also great value. Only slight downside is how quickly they clear the table, I imagine this is a cultural thing. Once we asked them to leave things, it was fine. Will definitely go back and recommend to others.

Service second to none. Food not great unfortunately. Having grown up on Korean food have always loved the flavour and intense marinades - this was lacking in both and the meat quality was awful.
