Wonderful! Loved all of it from the attentive service to the delicious food. The venison was fantastic but the pie was equally good. Wine was perfect and puddings too.
Couldn’t fault any of it.

Lovely staff and excellent service. Really liked the decor and ambience, and the open kitchen where food seemed to be prepared very calmly with no sense of strain. Food was delicious - really thoughtfully constructed menu, good quality food, and unfussy and mouth-watering to look at. Very much enjoyed it.

Had an incredible experience here for Valentine’s Day. Wait staff was friendly and attentive as soon as we walked in. Food service was quick and the venison and baked goat cheese were delicious. Pricing was very good considering the area and the food quality. We will definitely be back.

A birthday dinner for 12. All a little last minute. And were we mighty glad we made the decision. Exemplary cooked food, attentive service and a a lovely touch with the birthday greeting, cake and fizz.

This was a delightful spot for my first dinner in London. The staff were very warm and friendly and the food was comforting and delicious. I ate to my heart's content and didn't break the bank. There is a cute bar downstairs for a different atmosphere and drinks. Highly recommend!

Great service
Superb food
Wonderful wines (Portuguese) and cocktails
Shame there weren't more diners. Chelsea were playing at home.
Will definitely return next time back in London.
Wagyu burger and corn fed baby chicken were divine.
And the cheesecake...never tasted any better.
A real jewel in south west london

The food was absolutely amazing. Well balanced flavours. We were a party of 4 with one vegan and everyone enjoyed their meals thoroughly. The prawns for starters was the highlight of the meal along with the corn fed chicken. I definitely will be going back!

Hands Down.... @the_gojk was absolutely AMAZING....the food was exceptionally tantalising- Like seriously the flavours exploded in your mouth differently, succulent, sweet- it was an experience for real....if you know me- I LOVE food- and this was IT. EVERY dish exceeded expectation.....if you are a foody you REALLY need to get down there. The setting is also intimate, the drinks/cocktails were good, the staff are extremely attentive and hospitable, the location, and decor was a vibe.

It was a very nice experience. It is a small place therefore not too busy and noisy. The food was very nice and so was the service. We will definitely come again.

Not at all what we expected after we read nothing but rave reviews. We set a dinner reservation for 6.30 pm on a Saturday night. On arrival there were no patrons inside and 2 were seated outdoors. Even so, service was slow, menu options were not available (burger). Wine was not right in its flavor. Amber Manhattan was okay (2 4 1) - but far from great. We decided not to eat after the noise level went up blaring 80s disco music. Ambiance is cold and seating not comfortable.

We found this restaurant online, looking for a nice place for our Saturday evening meal on a mini-break in London. The surroundings were lovely, although the tables were very close and we could hear every word of our neighbouring table's conversation. The staff were absolutely lovely, and we had great service from all that tended to our needs. The menu is a little limited, as one might expect from an independent, but everyone was very happy with what they ordered. A small note might be to be specific on the menu that the burgers were served with fries, as two extra sides that were ordered proved quite filling and prevented us from going for desserts. A strange name, and not so visually appealing from the outside, but absolutely worth a visit and as we usually stay in this area when visiting London. We will definitely return to The Gojk.

Difficult to describe the ambience as for most of the time we were the only 2 diners in the place at 8.30 on a Wednesday evening. Food was average. Nothing outstanding in any way so felt £32 for a burger, chips and a glass of Cote du Rhone to be a bit pricey. However it was a warm evening so it was nice to sit in their courtyard. Service very pleasant but absolutely nothing to tempt me back I'm sorry to say.

Our second visit - and very quiet (although we were early). We enjoyed a glass of Vinho Verde before our starters of Asparagus and Tempura Courgettes - both excellent. Mains of Lemon Sole and Exotic Red Mullet were equally good - with a side of Cassava Fries. A bottle of Ripanco was good value. Service was very friendly and attentive. Recommended.

The food was absolutely delicious.

A very unassuming venue- but everything that we had was fantastic. The scallops and prawns were *Incredible* and the wine list was great!

The service was second to none. Faultless.

Had to come back after our previous dinner at Gojk! My fiancé’s parents were visiting from out of the country, and we knew they would enjoy Gojk’s amazing food and ambiance. The staff absolutely did not disappoint. They were very attentive, kind, and helpful. My fiancé’s father does not walk well, and the Gojk sat us close to the handicap restroom to make things easier for him. The future in-laws truly loved the food,wine, and staff- and are excited to dine at the Gojk again in the future!

Absolutely wonderful place. Quite small inside dining space but well-designed to provide good space between parties. A very inviting and quaint patio area. Food was incredible. Loved everything we had...ribs, scallops, asparagus, chicken. Fabulous service and family-owned. Very personable and involved owners. We will return!
