    Unfortunately on the night we went there was another table constantly swearing, not a good atmosphere for family meal. For the money paid we was expecting something special but it wasn't. Watch out for the service charge which is automatically added to the bill

    Food and service is not as good as the Cave Hotel. The menu is the same yet there was less food / different - and this was not discussed with us when we ordered. We expected to get the same food and service as we did at the other Korean Cowgirl restaurant but we didn’t.

    Service was fine, although took some time serving up. Food was good but way over priced, same also for the drinks. Won't go back for that reason.

    The food was great, really very tasty - although the fried cauliflower was not hot when it arrived on the table like it had been sat waiting to be bought to the table for a while. Sadly the service was really lacking. It was half-hearted, drinks order taken at the same time as food (which was a considerable time after we were seated), and no real enthusiasm behind it. Just flat. And no cheerio or goodbye despite us shouting thank you to the staff as we stood and left the restaurant. In addition the menu changed from the point of booking so the Mini Cowgirl Feast effectively went up from £30 to £40 overnight. Sadly, both visits to The Korean Cowgirl (20th May at The Cave) and last night in Canterbury have been blighted by menu changes (the Feast had been taken off the menu when we visited The Cave) and the service levels last night means I won’t be back. A real shame as it had such potential to be a huge winner for me.

    The food is lovely, the staff are great but the toilets need sorting out. Ladies was closed(blocked pipe) all guests using one single toilet. Which was not kept clean.Tables need deep clean, not just wipe over as crumbs and food getting stuck in metal edging.

    Really nice venue and really friendly and helpful staff, however the food was disappointing to say the least. We went for the delightfully named ‘ dirty cowgirl feast’ this was a platter of foods from across the menu. Unfortunately it all came out very cold and somewhat dry and we don’t think the quantity and definitely the quality matched the £60 price tag. Once the staff were informed of how cold it was they were quick to remove it from the bill so cant fault them at all for that but the food itself was a disappointment.

    The meat was nice but it really wasn't value for money. The meal cost a flipping fortune and its not like you are in a fine dining place. So no we wouldnt ever go again. I felt it was a bit too rich with so much meat and if the sides werent so expensive I would have liked more veg or something to cut through the richness of so much meat. We only had mains (no pudding, no starter) for 2 people, and 3 drinks between us (a lager and 2 gin and lemonades) and the meal came to £114.00. We thought that was extortionate seeing as you are sat in what is kind of like a cafe!

    I’ve been really excited to try this restaurant after hearing amazing things about it and seeing how good the food looked advertised. While it was nice food, I was definitely expecting more for the price point. £10 for a smaller than expected portion of burnt ends which were “okay”. Overall we left feeling a bit disappointed with the amount we paid and the result we got. We are happy to pay for a nice meal out when it delivers and unfortunately they didn’t that evening.

    This is the first time I have had bad beef, I have been a few times, this time it was a birthday gift, unfortunately the beef was 50% fat, we picked off what meat we could but after a mouth full of jelly fat, my partner was put off. We did mention it to the waitress and they did however offer to replace it but by this time we had had enough, so they partially refunded the cost,(50%) which was fair enough. I do feel however this should never have landed on our plate in the first place. Not sure I will go again, wouldn't want to chance it again, as £50 for beef of this quality seems very excessive.

    Hadn’t been to the Korean cowgirl in Canterbury since before Covid. Arrived at 2pm on a Friday it was very quiet which was nice. We both ordered the mini cowgirl at £30, food itself was tasty and more than enough for one person was it worth £30 I’m not so sure. We waited less than 5 minutes for the meal. So it was clearly pre cooked which is fine but it was pretty much cold when it was served, which isn’t good enough. May be return in the evening when it’s busier and food more likely to be heated through and hot!

    The food was incredible and came out very quick, my only criticism would be that the service wasn’t great from the waitress. It took a very long time to be acknowledged even though there were only two other couples. We were seated near the kitchen and you could hear the chefs entire conversation too. The food however was incredible and I would go back!

    Food is amazing here. Third time we’ve been and it’s always incredible. Honey butter boneless chicken bites are the ones. And the spicy corn on the cob is so good too. Not cheap but worth every penny.

    Food was tasty but quite expensive for what you get… £10 for a dessert feels really high! There wasn’t any music playing which affected the ambience and the toilets weren’t particularly clean in my opinion. I’d go again for the bao doughnut and the Korean chicken wings but I’m not in a rush to return :)

    Perfectly okay food, but slightly bland and nothing special. Wouldn't be the end of the world if the price wasn't so high (£25 for a burger). Service okay too, friendly staff, but takes a long time to catch their eye to ask for something since there was only one person doing front of house for approx 8-9 tables.

    Visited on 19th May 2022 at 7pm. Firstly, cutlery on the table was dirty, replaced without fuss which was good. I have visited three times now and every time something has been unavailable from my menu choice. Not very good. On top of this I feel that it's expensive for the food offering available. This will be my last visit.

    Had to wait 20 mins for a pint of lager after ordering, loud noisy stag do group in the corner, that should have been asked to be quieter or leave as no respect for the other custimers or the staff actually. This made my romantic meal very stressful and put us on edge. Didnt like that service charge was added on to the bill and only paid portion of it. I like to be able to give/leave a tip if I want, to the servers directly rather than the business as they are the ones on the restaurant floor. We had to remind the waitress that a dish was missing and I had to ask for a plate and a glass for the water. Overall not a great experience

    Dreadful meal, greasy chicken and filthy floors. So overpriced for food and drinks, salty chips and part of our chicken was raw. Avoid.
