Korean
The story of Simya began in 2015 when we opened the first branch in London's Fulham. Choi is a professional korean chef from New Castle who wants to share his enthusiasm for fresh, authentic, handmade Korean food and Bento with the Londoners and he knows they like it. In a bright, clean, cozy Korean style, Simya has launched a new after-work selection, including bulgogi, bibimbap, stew and authentic Korean dishes, which are immediately welcomed by starving Londoners to find new, different and healthy things. All people need is an opportunity to taste quality korean food at an affordable price. His ideas are both radical and unique: the first store in Britain to sell separate packaged Lunch box, provides a beautiful choice for customers and gives them the opportunity to truly experience the freshness of the Korean food.

First time to this place, really nice, modern with a good wine menu. The prawn tempura was delicious.
Overall I felt the portions were quiet small, particular the rice.
The food was very good and I would like to come again.

The Geon (seafood pancake) and Octopus Arm are delicious and are my favourite. While the Dolsot Bibimbap with tofu was a disappointment as the ingredients used are not the traditional, there were courgettes and white mushrooms that shouldn't be there, and there were no ingredients like Chinese mushroom and bean sprouts. The Fried Pak Choi is just 1 pak choi chopped into 4 for £5.20, that's extortion! The service was very good, the waitress was attentive and courteous, and the general ambience is very nice.

They have changed the menu and they don't have any sushi anymore. The pictures on the website does not match the current menu.
The ambience is nice and staff as well.

Food was eatable, but not what you expect when you go out for lunch or dinner.
We had to wait between the starters and the main for 40min. So we didn't even finish what we ordered.

Very poor Korean food. If you are looking for authenticity this place is not for you. We have two starters, two mains, and two soft drinks. The bill is £48.

Nice little restaurant in a cute courtyard in the heart of Hammersmith. Very tasty food and very well presented. The service was great, very welcoming and attentive. Also, they have done a great job with the social distance measures.

Pretty decent Korean food; not too spicy to suit Western tastes. The yuzu cheesecake was literally just a normal cheese cake though.

Social distancing is not really good, you are not well separated from other guests, and the staff don't have PPE on. So will probably wait till things blow over to visit again.

We were not given a table with a griller and when we said we want to do the barbecue, they said we can't. They didn't even give us options if we could wait for others to finish since we are actually willing to wait and we booked for our time. It was so disappointing and no one even gabe us the heads up that we couldn't do the grilling. It's not about the food, it's more of the experience. And the service as well since they just said there's nothing they can do. Which is totally unfair because we didn't know you have to specify that you have to book a table with a griller.

Very nice experience. The service was amazing. The only disappointing thing was that many options from the menu weren’t available and that can of ruin a bit the night but for the rest very nice.

The food was alright but overpriced for what we got. We reserved a table and got placed at the balcony where the waiters had to get plates from. It is a pretty cool place to be in with a stylish ambiance but I was unfortunately a bit disappointed with the overall experience

Definitely a good restaurant, I enjoyed the food. The only downside is the price, as the portions were quite small. I don’t think the price and food amount was exactly at it’s worth despite it being tasty.

Staff were extremely helpful and intuitive. As a fussy eater trying new things they helped me choose an appropriate meal and then adapted as required. Providing forks and a side plate for food separation without needing to be asked. At no point did I feel out of place or condescended. The entire experience was simple yet fantastic.

Food was ok but nothing special (we didn't have the barbecue though). The service was very slow despite the restaurant being half empty. I wouldn't go again.
