    I always bring people here. The kimchi pancake and tofu bibimbap (no egg) is a dream meal. Wash it down with a Korean pear juice.

    First time coming to KKINI for a date night and I was delighted with the service! The lovely lady serving us was very informative and very interestingly asked if we were hungry because we had ordered a lot! Shows she cared for us not to over spend and waste food! (We ate everything) The food was just delicious and meat was fresh!! The experience was so amazing, we will be back again! Also available on deliveroo, which is pwrfect takeaway on a night in! The Korean lemon and honey tea was the best thing I’ve tried! 11/10!

    Korean food with option to BBQ own food. Just a bit over priced. 2 beers, BBQ and 12.5% service cost me over £90. Probably will not return

    The food was delicious, fresh and beautifully presented. Would 1000% recommend and I’ll definitely be back! I was worried the grilling would be hard but the manager explained things really clearly and was overseeing us from a distance so we felt totally safe and independent. The meats were so well seasoned!

    We had an exceptional experience at KKini Korean BBQ. The warm hospitality and cosy atmosphere set the stage for a memorable meal. The Galbi soup was extraordinary, with a rich, savoury broth. The KFC had a perfect balance of crispy texture and mouth-watering sauce. The Japchae was a harmonious medley of chewy noodles and vibrant vegetables. The Bulgogi and Galbi grilled meats were tender and packed with smoky flavours. The Kimchee pancake was a crispy delight with tangy and spicy notes. The garlic broccoli showcased quality ingredients. The beverage menu added an extra layer of authenticity. Conveniently located, KKini Korean BBQ is a must-visit for a truly unforgettable dining experience.

    Due to a fire on the Northern Line, my planned guest was delayed by 25mins. However the staff was very accommodating and understanding of this. Servers where readily available for orders or additional questions, despite the large number of customers. Very relaxed environment all things considered, highly recommended.
