My food was OK, nothing special, but my daughter's was terrible - wrong rice, cold, generally not as described. When she complained they refused to change it. Poor service. Would not recommend

I love Korean food, and it's rare to find authentic Korean food out and about but this place ticks all the boxes. Perfect flavour and at a good value. The portions are generous too!

Not bad for bibimbap. Quite a lot of choices and variety. Love the dishes and would go again. Small dissapointments was I had a clump of rice that were rock hard and it did taste like a day or 2 old rice.

Ordered a beef bibimap when it turned up it was luke warm and was basically flavourless. They also gave me white rice rather than brown. When I complained they basically just told me I was wrong refused to give me something else or return my money. Manager and staff incredibly rude, avoid at all costs.

Korean food is new to me but with the help of the willing staff I had an excellent meal. A choice of four types of rice allowed me to pick my favourite brown rice. I chose spicy chicken and the staff put a selection of vegetables to go with it. Four different sauces were available to complement the meal. Free... More

My first time here (and anywhere similar), so I wasn't clear about what I wold get after ordering. We chose the Eel Bibimbap and thought it would come with a range of fresh vegetables, but it only had rice and mixed leaves. Nonetheless it was a good dish; the eel was delicious, the teriyaki sauce was divine (with sufficient to... More

I normally have either the beef or chicken on white rice with hot sauce. The flavours are very different to other cuisines but go well together and you get a very filling bowl of food. One side note, they are often slow to bring the drinks, which means the Oolong tea is often over-brewed and bitter.
