    Great food and excellent service from staff. They used to have private booths which they don't seem to have anymore, and it would be great to bring them back! It was my partner's birthday and they bought out a surprise treat for him and sang happy birthday. Neither of us were expecting that but it was super sweet and the waiters were amused by his embarrassment so that was fun! Definitely a pricey place but the food was great - we got the Ninja Course. It's more than enough for 2 people. Drinks (alcoholic) were strong and really good. I would say to perhaps move the happy hour time to maybe an hour earlier as 9pm is quite late.

    I've been to Kintan Chancerly lane many times and it has always been great. However last night in Oxford Circus the service experience was very bad. Nobody was looking after our table, we had to ask many times to get assistance, there was no much attention to keep the table clean as we asked for a large set menu and the drinks took ages to arrive, and arrived wrong. Quite disappointed!

    It’s my favourite Japanese BBQ place in London. I keep come here for 6-7 years already and always took friends who never eat it before to this place and all of them love it.

    The food is the best Japanese bbq I've ever tried. So delicious, I will definitely be coming back here with my family as they all loved it too. However, the only criticism I have is that the music was quite loud so waiters couldn't hear us properly. I recommend going during happy hour as prices are slightly cheaper but there will be a crowd, so make sure to book in advance! Overall, I loved it!!!

    Although you can’t book online for groups larger than 8, they managed to squeeze us in round a booth. However, there is only one cooking plate between us, which wasn’t enough. The grilling meats are very good, especially the marinated beef.

    The food is very tasty and it's fun cooking it yourself. We went for the kintan menu which has a great choice and we did not leave hungry. We enjoyed all the different options of meant and side dishes. I tried new things I've not had before and loved it all, especially the bin bap rice. It's very good value for money. The venue could do with a good deep clean though. The menus are sticky and in need or replacing. On first impression it wasn't the cleanest. The staff were helpful and friendly.

    I have been here several time and never had a issue, last night we went last night food good as always but at 9:30pm they came over to us and told us if we wanted to order our last order as the Kitchen is closing. Then a few mins later they bring us our bill. Then while we’re eating they ask us to pay as they need to close the till. I have never had this issue ever here but the lady that served us was just so rude and rushing us so much. It’s like they wanted to leave before there time.

    As always, the food was delicious, but the service was seriously lacking. We were kept waiting after our reservation start time, it took 30 minutes for someone to take our order (after we had to flag them down) and when issues were raised, there were no apologies from staff, just silence. Its a shame, because the food (particularly the soy beef) was delicious.

    Mediocre at best, no real introduction on how things work considering we have never been there before. Also, there were no halal meat options. Staff were not very present or welcoming, and when we said we wouldn't be paying the service charge, they literally shut themselves off, didn't even greet us as we were leaving. Glad i didn't pay it!

    Been coming here since as long as it's been open, generally the quality of food has been consistently great. The service on a Saturday evening however, wasn't all that. There were no jugs available for water for the table, bless the waiters they were so busy that it felt like they were trying to avoid being called over to tables. We had to remind staff to bring stuff we'd ordered, we didn't get our grill rack changed despite having grilled a lot over 2 hours, lots of small little things that took away from the overall experience. I feel the service at both branches has always been mid, but Holborn might be a better shout. Again, great food tho, so like, it is what is I guess but maybe hire more staff?

    The service was awful, we asked the grill to be changed they did not do this, they did not give us a jug of tap water and we felt extremely trusted despite the fact we couldn’t grill quickly as we had to keep turning grill on and pff as hot oil spit onto us. Would not recommend and will not go again.
