I came here for my boyfriend's birthday as I saw this restaurant featured on MasterChef a few years ago and it looked interesting. For starters we ordered the Beef and Pork Mandoo and the Tofu Lolipops which were both really tasty. For mains we got the Dwenjang Pork Belly and the Gochujang Tiger Prawns. I was pleasantly surprised with how well the hummus went with the korean flavoured pork. Both mains were really tasty but they were on the small side so sides are absolutely essential. For sides we got the truffle fries and the kimchi fried rice. The truffle fries were okay but the fried rice was really delicious so in hindsight I would either get the rice or another side dish. For dessert we got the strawberry bingsu which was delightful. For drinks I got the watermelon mocktail which was really tasty - as it was a weeknight I wasn't drinking but if the mocktails were this good I'd imagine the cocktails would be delicious. The bill came to around £120 for 2 people. Overall we had a lovely evening and would recommend. 👍

If it wasn't for the food, I would have given my overall experience 2 stars. The food tasted amazing, the food was cooked well, seasoned well, and came to the table in adequate time. The staff were patient as I had to wait a while for the rest of my party to arrive for 30 minutes. However, as I was waiting, I could hear 2 staff members having a disagreement with one another, I could pretty much hear everything and I found that to be quite unprofessional. Also, I noted in my booking that I was celebrating my birthday but they didn't bring out anything — usually restaurants would bring out a complimentary dessert, however, they didn't do anything which was highly disappointing and unusual, considering I saw a girl get a complimentary dessert with sparklers a couple of tables away from me.

Had a lovely time and friendly waitresses serving the bottomless brunch. Unfortunately, the general manager is an incredibly rude and unprofessional man who was berating the waitresses in front of the customers and trying to rush people out. When he was politely asked not to rush the table as we still had drinks to finish he lacked all professionalism and clearly had zero customer/staff care and basically was glaring at everyone. Felt so sorry for the staff there and he did spoil the end of the meal, which was a shame.

We had the set menu to have a selection of dishes and flavours, but you can have small plates instead, or a larger main on its own. Great flavours and nicely cooked. The only thing to watch out for is that mussels were not mentioned in the description of the cod dish, so I had to swap with my husband.

The food was delicious but waitress was extremely rude and not very accommodating. I asked for extra sauce on the side with the Katsu curry which didn't come and then I had to wait 10 minutes and my food was cold. The waitress was snappy and when we asked a question about the food / drink she would give us an inappropriate look.

The food was delicious but where our waitress was rude it would put me off coming back.

Thanks.

The staff were absolutely lovely and so attentive (we did the bottomless brunch and they made sure our glasses were never empty!). The food was truly delicious, and there was so much of it for what we paid as well. There was enough variety to cater for the veggies and pescatarians amongst us, and the whole experience was really excellent.

Lovely place. Lovely food. Enjoyed most of my dining experience. The only downside was the the fact that we kept being rushed to leave when our booking was over even though we wanted to order more food. The waitress literally put the receipt in our face when the time was up and told us we had to vacate the table.

My son suggested this for my birthday meal and so glad he did. Food was delicious and plentiful. I had the short rib which was so tender and tasty, we also shared a few of the starters. We took advantage of the Seoul hour with a couple of Seoul Sister cocktails which were delightful, never had Soju before. A bottle of decent white wine was reasonably priced for central London and we thought the overall bill was pretty fair for a wonderful two courses each for three people. Service was very good too. I would definitely go back.
