Squaremeal Review of Asadal ?

The capital's largest Korean restaurant is proof good things can come in big packages. Beneath the dingy entrance next to Holborn station lies an atmospheric low-lit basement filled with a loyal crowd of expats and keen foodies. Staff are more efficient than friendly, but forgive the lukewarm welcome and focus instead on the authentic food. Well-judged dishes include handmade kun man du (pork dumplings), crispy pa jeon (seafood pancakes) and scene-stealing bibimbap (layers of meat, rice and vegetables in a sizzling stone pot). Korean barbecue is cooked on hotplates at your table and served with the traditional selection of pickles and vegetables that give the cuisine its perfect balance. Quality doesn't come cheap, but with Korean food now in London's gastronomic mainstream, Asadal remains one of the best options in town.
