I work in Lincoln's Inn Fields and often bemoan the lack of restaurants for lunch nearby. It's all chains like Strada and Cafe Rouge. Asadal is a real find for lunch or dinner and is excellent value.
The food is really tasty (try the Kan Poong Gi Bab; marinated fried crispy chicken. Not fatty or covered in thick nasty batter, just really light and crispy. Amazing) and the lunch deal includes a bowl of miso soup and a slice of melon for dessert. Excellent value, particularly when most of the lunch dishes cost about £8. The Korean root tea is also really good – similar to ginger tea but with a slight hint of spice.
The Korean barbecue menu for dinner is also excellent value and great dining theatre; the tables have a gas barbecue recessed in the table and after you've gorged on 3 rounds of starters a chef comes to your table with marinated meat/fish/similar, as well as lots of vegetables, sauces, rice etc and cooks it in front of you. Great fun and the smell of barbecuing food is really appetising.
Service is prompt and discrete.
