Very nice restaurant, food and staff. Very attentive staff and food and cocktails came very well presented and at the right temperature.

Our tables were not 2 meters away from others; in fact, they weren’t even 1 meter away from others which was slightly uncomfortable during covid.

I would go back again but I would prefer next time that my table was not so close to others during a pandemic.

Had a great time. Lovely service and ambience, and interesting flavours. Everyone loved their meals. Delicious food but portions were on the small side.

The cocktails were lovely but quite small considering the price. Would definitely return.

Hi Adelle, Thanks for the feedback. I do have to admit that the music usually goes up as the night progress. However, we would be more than happy to relocate your table to our more subtle dining room should circumstances allow. Hopefully we shall see you again soon. K

The food in general was great but the highlight for us was the Wagyu Mini Sliders, these were absolutely divine! The service was also pretty good, our waiter was friendly and attentive. The restaurant felt COVID-19 secure - staff wore masks and sanitised often. We would definitely come back to try other dishes.

I LOVE Jinjuu and especially on this occasion - dropped in many years ago when it first opened and had a good experience, then returned this year with my fiancé ahead of buying our wedding bands, to celebrate we booked the festive menu and even went bottomless! It was a strange time to go out and the restaurant wasn’t very busy, but it lovely to be out and about during this very strange period that the world is going through. We felt very safe here and all the safety rules were adhered to.
In terms of the meal, the dishes were all delicious, each superbly varied and just the right quantity. The service was very attentive and jolly - we had an excellent team serving us.
A 5 * experience for us! Thank you Jinjuu team!! We’ll be back!

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.
