The food was good. However i stated on the booking and I called ahead as we went for my boyfriends birthday asking them to put a candle in the Desert. They said they would but then they didn’t. With this year being horrible, i really wanted something small to cheer him up. But they didn’t.

Also the service was slow. It was nearly impossible to get someone to order food or drinks. They took so long to come to us.

The food, staff and atmosphere were all fantastic. We took advantage of the extended eat out to help out offer and ordered more than we normally would have and all the food was amazing. The Beef Bulgogi Tacos were definitely my favourite.
The staff were very friendly and efficient particularly the blonde female who checked us in and our waiter.
You could see social distancing measure were in place but it didn’t take away from the atmosphere and experience.
Would highly recommend.

Food was really good. Everything tasted great and was reminded me of being back in Korea. Soju was seriously overpriced though! The service was a real let down however, we were rushed by our waiter who hovered over us the whole meal (no social distancing there!). The music was awful too, for what is meant to be a “family friendly” restaurant I was pretty shocked with the language of music being played.

Delicious food! Staff helpful and accommodating - thoughtfully offered us a table move they thought might suit for our kids when they didn't need to, and cleaning the one we'd just sat down at (for Covid reasons) made them more work to do. They're knowledgeable about the menu and happy to make recommends and brief re: kid preferences/spice levels. Lovely.

We had a lovely meal at Jinjuu. The food was delicious and good value. We ordered dumplings, tacos, fried chicken and noodles - which was more than enough for two. The staff were attentive and super helpful. We sat downstairs and the ambience was OK, it was definitely more vibrant upstairs, but the quality of the food definitely made up for that. Would be happy to recommend this and would definitely consider going back.

In general, it was a bit rush through out the dinner. I kept asking them to bring the food slowly because we ordered many dishes for my friends to try. So that's was not nice having to rush.
