Square Meal Review of Koba ?

Popular with local big-hitters, Koba’s upscale, monochrome decor (pale tiles, dark tables) makes it classy enough for swish clients while offering the showtime of cooking ‘at your own table’. Start with yook hwei (Korea’s answer to steak tartare, combining strips of raw beef with slivers of sweet pear & an egg yolk stirred in at the last moment), goon mandoo (pan-fried veggie dumplings, not unlike gyoza), or a casserole/broth with mushrooms & gnocchi-esque rice-flour dumplings. Then sit back while efficient staff fire up the hotplates & BBQ pieces of sirloin steak or ‘to die for’ pork belly – perfect with kimchi (chilli-hot pickled cabbage) & a bottle of cold Hite (Korea’s favourite beer). At lunchtime, perching at the bar is a favourite pastime for solo diners.

    chichangout :: Koba

    Koba has been on a map of top Korean restaurants in London for a while. Too popular for too long? I thought it was totally running on its old reputation. How wrong was I….

    The place is quite small. I was there on Tuesday evening and all the tables on the ground floor were taken. In the first room there is a bar, where you can sit and actually see how the dishes are prepared. Walking further into restaurant, there is a second room with just standard tables, with the barbeque station in the middle of each table...

    YUMMEI :: Koba - Fitzrovia - London

    One of my go-to favourite Korean BBQ Restaurant's is Koba.

    He's located in Fitzrovia, hidden just off Tottenham Court Road.

    Koba, isn't the largest restaurant but the high ceilings give it an airy/relaxing atmosphere.

    So you can gaze up to the sky and shake your fist at the rain clouds...
