Great service, very attentive. Food was nice... quite expensive for what you got though. Had a bibimbap which I was left a little disappointed about. Cocktails were great though and very good atmosphere!

Food was great only annoying thing that happens in a lot of London restaurants is lack of servers and no one paying attention to you when its time to pay the bill.

Amazing food! wanted to go somewhere new and different for my birthday and got exactly that. The whole family loved it. I would defiantly recommend to family and friends to go there and would defiantly go there again! The staff were good at keeping on top of everything, drinks, cleaning up and track of orders as well as helping us understand the menu and any questions we had. Really enjoyed it here, had a great birthday!

Food was good. Upscale Korean fusion so don't expect traditional. We were a group of 6 at a shared table sitting on stools. It was very loud (the music and the guests around us) so it was hard to talk at our table but might be better in a smaller group.

Great place to be with a friend, partner or whoever. Great atmosphere and theres a place to sit inside or outside in the summer. Food is impeccable but service can be a bit slow. One of the waiters dropped a spiced sauce covered chopstick on my friend and didnt say sorry. Was a bit careless. But otherwise good food and great for a friday or saturday night

Great fusion Korean food and some more traditional stuff. Starter selection alone is brilliant. A nice selection of cocktails too . Service a little hit or miss but probably only because of the traffic. Oh and get a seat downstairs if you want to be able to hear yourself thinking as they sometimes have a DJ upstairs and it can get ridiculous.

I've never been disappointed when I've been to Jinjuu, and my visit on 6th July was no different. The ambience was even better than usual as it was Pride, so everyone was having so much fun and the waiters were all so lovely and welcoming. The food was absolutely delicious and we were so full when we walked away. My boyfriend is gluten free and Jinjuu's GF menu had plenty of options for him, so he was really pleased and surprised by the amount of dishes he could choose from.

Not really my kind of place. The table reserved for us was a High table which I don't like and the lady in charge seemed very put out that I didn't want to sit there. She managed to find us a normal table at the back. My main course arrived before I had finished my starter and I found the music too loud but that is a personal opinion and I'm not as young as I used to be.

I was very impressed from start to finish. The service was impeccable timing and the food was scrumptious and really tasted healthy and authentic. Thoroughly enjoyed each dish and even felt like ordering another before the main came. The waiters were also very polite and friendly. I have to say a special thank you to Yin who immediately notified me when my mother accidentally forgot her phone after we left. I will definitely be returning again and recommending this wonderful restaurant to others.

I have been waiting to go here for some time as like Judy Juu as a chef. We were not disappointed as it was out 10 year anniversary and we made the trip from Ipswich. The food was absolutely fantastic and everything I hoped for. The head waitress here could not do enough for us she was very attentive and very polite. Would recommend this to anyone and can’t wait to go a again. Love the idea of the 90 minute all you could drink with the brunch menu as well.

Amazing place with some quite incredible food. We chose the set menu at £40 each which you really need to be hungry for as a lot of food but nice to try lots of different dishes. The crispy Chicken and Lollipops were particularily good and the Korean rice wine. The price with drinks though adds up so not an inexpensive night.

Had a fantastic meal at Jinjuu, lots of options for food and drinks, the ambience for a friday night was great. Only negative would be we felt very rushed to finish, pay our bill and leave, I understand most restaurants in central have tables available for 2 hours, but I don't appreciate being made to feel that I need to rush my drink or food. I would otherwise recommend Jinjuu to anyone looking for a great contemporary Korean spot in central London, however I may suggest going at an off peak time.

This was my second visit to Jinjuu Soho in as many months. Food is really good. I went back for the Korean fried chicken alone! It is delicious. A friend who I dined with is vegan so we chose several items off the vegan menu (mushroom tacos, sweet potato noodles, deep fried cauliflower) and all were delicious. Service was good but a bit overbearing. We only had the table for 2 hours and the waiters certainly let you know that. They kept hovering to take dishes away which I find quite annoying.

The food was nice, but the service started lacking half way in. It’s as if the staff lost interest once they realized we were not going to order starter-main-desert and loads of booze. They asked for the table back before we could see the desserts. Then brought us the wrong bill, then ignored us when we wanted to pay. It’s s shame, we really liked the place at the beginning: the menu, decor, and service.

Everything about this restaurant was good, until the chef forgot about the specified allergies. The manager was very apologetic and made several deductions from the bill, but allergic reaction was not worth all the gestures. Most unlikely to return

It was my birthday! The service was great, just the table on the lower ground floor wasn’t most convenient. The table is next to their till and they tend to hang our there and chat which is a bit disturbing. The only this that left a bit of weird taste is my month is the fast that after spending £60 per person they still charged us for “cakeage”.£2.50 when you bring in a small bday cake. I think that is excessive and not needed when the spent per person is more than £30.00.

Overall the food was delicious. One of the best meals in London.

Lovely interior and atmosphere. We had the 2 course set lunch menu - food was tasty but disappointing in terms of portion size - I don’t eat a lot but still felt like I could have had another meal. The mains were pretty small. One friend ordered from the main menu and her portion was significantly larger and better. Next time I wouldn’t waste money on the set lunch menu but just order straight from the main menu.

Food was excellent!! My sister’s first Korean and she loved it. The only let down was the service was mediocre, our main waiter seemed to never be around even though the restaurant was very quiet, so it took longer than it should’ve to order. The other thing is that plate sizes are quite small considering the price. But that’s london for you I suppose.
