Food was good and the waiter was really good, his name was Gavin (or similar name). Please, give him a bonus for being so nice to customers.

The food is great, the atmotsphere is good but service is extremely bad. The waiter always forget my order and give something I didn't order. He even forget that my course is including rice, miso soup and salad

Was nice food and a great price but the service wasn't that great,been to the holborn Kenyan and the service and experience is much better,had to ask for condiments several times and was sat without a drink k or any one coming to the table for at least 15 minutes,but food was great.aleays go to holborn and they are much friendlier and give you an overall better experience.

This was my 6th time visiting Kintan but my first visit post-lockdown. We got a temperature check before we entered and was made to sanitise our hands upon entry. We had to wear our masks as well and only took them off when we sat down at our table which was sectioned off from the other tables through the use of a divider. Overall, I felt all the measures were in place to make us feel safe and the food and vibe was just how I remembered it; amazing. Kintan is always my go-to restaurant and I try and recommend it to everyone I can!

Brilliant place to eat and talk, usually restaurants are really loud to where I struggle to talk without raising my volume, Kintan was busy but still ambient. Food was great, if you're into bbqing at your table, our waitress was new so we weren't guided the best but we gave her the benefit of the doubt. Otherwise, would highly recommend it.

Nice food and decor. More than enough food in their set meals. Service was a bit slow. We had waited quite a while for desserts, quick to bring the bill but slow to actually take payment.

First time of being at the restaurant. Right from the welcome visit at the door to the end of the meal, the staff members were fantastic! The food was as expected, my children and I enjoyed ourselves.

Very polite and helpful staff. We will definitely visit the restaurant again soon.

Was unsure how it would be post Covid - temp check and hand sanitizer on arrival sanitizing stations all round and waiting staff in masks and designated serving space on your table. The food was fabulous as ever a little quieter than usual but still fantastically friendly staff, great food and drinks. i would highly recommend

Excellent place. Every dish is lovely, they marinate their meat really well and happy hour pushes drinks down to budget levels (£3 for a pint!). Recommend any set menu, perfect for a special occasion meal.

Opening after Covid they went above and beyond. There’s temperature checks on arrival and hand sanitiser is dotted around. There’s plastic screens between each table which is a bonus as it means more privacy.!

The salmon dish was our favourite, followed by the Kalbi beef. The staff were careful to maintain covid 19 hygiene measures so we felt comfortable dining there. Booking was easy and we arrived in time for happy hour prices, which made the bill reasonable. I'd go again.
