What a terrific place, the food was wonderful and the service polite, efficient and faultless. I took a friend here who spent a year living on the chinese/korean border and had a real hankering for the rice bowls that she had come to know and love. She was lost for words with how great the food was.
For a fantastic taste experience try the carpaccio of beef (the description of raw beef mixed with egg can sound a little scary), the combination of pear, cucumber and beef was out of this world, and i have rarely had beef that was so tender and melt in the mouth. Followed by the ubiquitous bbq (we opted for marinaded pork), again the quality of the ingredients shone though, wrapped in lettuce with a little soy and miso paste, i could have eaten it all night! Finally, we topped the meal off with a couple of the bibibap rice bowls, and i can now see just why my friend raves about them.
In all, a great meal – complimented by genuinely friendly staff who are polite, efficient, and happy to leave you to eat (and chat) at your own pace. One of the main criticisms with some of the korean restaurants in london is that the staff are surly and just want you to eat and get out – not so here.
And the price for all this food and service – a lot less that we thought! Including tip, 2 starters, a pork bbq, 2 rice bowls and 2 glasses of aloe juice (think sherbet rainbow straw emptied into water and served over ice) it came to less than £25 a head.
I will definitely be heading back.
