We went to Jinjuu after seeing it on a TV programme for our wedding anniversary. The food was good but the ambience and experience was not great for a special occasion we were rushed out within the hour there was no gap between courses which did not give us a chance to enjoy the experience.

Interesting menu and we enjoyed discussing the ingredients and Korean cookery with the staff. The service was very good, friendly not overly attentive and informed. We enjoyed the food, particularly the Korean chicken and the accompanying sauces. It was exceptionally crispy and tender.

We were a bit confused about the Korean chips, the topping of brisket and chilli etc was really nice but the potatoes itself appeared to be just frozen chips! A bit soggy and anaemic.

Negatives were that we were seated downstairs in the basement which had no air conditioning and was extremely hot, given the heat wave and kitchen!!! Sadly the restaraunt only had two small fans! Also they had run out of some ingredients for cocktails by 20.30 which was a bit disappointing.
The ambience and temperature did seem better upstairs though.
Price was average for a trendy place in Soho, I would defiantly return but would book upstairs and would try some new dishes.

My parents and I went in for a late lunch. This place was absolutely tasty, but as far as Korean modern fusion goes it was not earth shattering. The fried chicken was heaven, everything else was fully fine.

Menu prices are a bit high but we had a lovely meal so it was worth it. To start with we had the side dish JINJUU CARNITAS FRIES which were very tasty and plenty for a starter for 2. For mains both myself and my husband each had BIBIMBAP my husband chose the sliced beef fillet and I had the marinated pork belly version which were both very authentic and tasty.

This is my new favourite restaurant in London. I will definitely be back. My friend and I shared the K-Town Street Feast Menu and the food was absolutely outstanding. There wasn't a single dish I didn't love, but my mouth is still watering from the incredible Korean Fried Chicken. The cocktails were delicious, generous and strong. The service was especially good. We were served by Antonio, who made the experience a real treat and kept us laughing the whole time. It's not cheap, but well worth the money. Loved it here.

First time at this delightful restaurant. We felt welcome from the minute we walked in. As we had not experienced this cuisine before we all opted for the £40 set menu. The food was very varied and beautifully presented. Our waiter was attentive without being overbearing and was really lovely. The whole experience was great and we will definately return.

JinJuu is I. The heart of the city in the back street of carnaby street London and full of life . I went with my two friends after an afternoon at the theatre and revived the ultimate service and excellent quality of food. The menu is full of great flavours and choices and accomadates well for those with dietary requirements. The staff were friendly helpful and of high level of service. I look forward to visiting again soon

Exceptional service by a waitress from Madrid. Terrific set menu with first-class edamame, well-varied dishes all of which were fresh tasting and with a tremendous range of textures and flavours. Not by any means cheap but very cheerful...Gewurtztraminer from Rouffach was the perfect wine; if only it was not so expensive: it costs about a quarter of the price in the village in Alsace. But it was a special occasion...No surprise that it was so busy. Music just the right side of too loud to hear conversation. Nicely accessible loo for people with mobility problems.

This was my 3rd visit to Jinjuu and I was really looking forward to having their signature Korean Fried Whole Chicken but I was disappointed to find it was only available as a small starter and had been relegated to the brunch menu. I think it is a big mistake not having this dish on the a la carte menu. I certainly won't be having an evening meal here again.

Food was not bad but it was a beautiful sunny day and it was a shame to spend lunch in such a dark and cold setting. Dumplings were particularly good, the ribs of the bone where quite dry. Waiter were nice.

I visited Jinjuu for my birthday earlier this week and have a great evening with friends. Loved the menu and the set menu options for £40 / £50 /£60 were a great idea. Although, I do think £60 a head is a bit on the steep side when you can dine for cheaper at a Michelin starred restaurant!
Service was exemplary and they couldn't have tried harder. Great location

Great place, this. I've been to the Jinjuu in Mayfair before, but this was first time at Kingly St and it will not be the last. They were kind and welcoming and very attentive throughout. The food was stand out delicious. I regret every little bit that I wasn't able to finish. I was really worried that the music would be invasively loud, but actually they had calibrated it perfectly, so it was atmospheric and enjoyable.
Seriously, the food really is good.
