I was late and the kitchen was about to close so I couldn’t experience it to the fullest, however I would recommend and the staff is really friendly and the food delicious.

This is a really lovely, relaxing and authentic Korean restaurant. The service was impeccable and friendly. The staff serving us was very knowledgeable and gave good advice about our order. The menu has good variety and selection. It has small dishes, starters, grill dishes, specials, vegetables and dessert. The food was fresh and of good quality. Of particular note is the kimchi pancakes and the grill dishes. We had the short ribs, pork belly and king prawns. All delicious but we were surprised that the pork and prawns were only seasoned with salt and pepper as they were being cooked at the table. Would be better if they had been marinated first. Also some dipping sauces would be nice. The chicken bimbimbap was great too. Overall high quality food at a reasonable price. Would definitely go back again.

The food we received was yummy, no complaints. Very tasty and flavourful.

My issue was that the service was slow and they forgot our food and the timing was a bit of an issue for me.

I would recommend this place to a friend, but with the caveat that you can not have high expectations on the service.

First time to Bullgogi. Me and the wife had always wanted to go there ever since it’s development stages. I wanted to have the Korean experience and I must say the food was absolutely amazing. We ordered the Special BBQ platter which I highly recommend. If it’s your first time there don’t worry the service there was great as the staff there will help you cook your food if you have never done it before. Anyways happy sizzling 👍🏼

This was my second time here, the first time was during the soft opening with the 50% off food. I was extremely disappointed with pretty much everything then, especially with this woman who was working there. When we ordered food, she basically scolded us for not ordering everything at once. She demanded that we needed to order everything now and can’t order any more food later on, which we were completely shocked by. We were so offended and just decided to ignore and try the food. The food was mediocre at best and since it was half price, we ate and left.
On the second time after it’s been open for about a year, the food and the service was still below average at best. Very disappointing Korean cuisine and not very good service. I live very close and being Korean myself, I’ve been an “ambassador” of Korean food in London to all my friends. Many friends have asked me about this restaurant and sadly, I have not and will not be recommending it.

Pleasant younger-scene sort of place, not far from NHG tube. Service rather off-the-case on a quiet lunchtime visit.

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.
