I used to frequent this place regualarly but sadly on my last visit having not been for a while it has gone seriously downhill. Miso soup that they forgot to put the miso in (hot water with tofu and seaweed lacks a certain anything). A set sushi plater with no tuna, as advertised on the menu. The fish was fine, though the nigiri very small and over firm. It was suspiciously quiet and couldn't help but feel with all of the other options available locally people were voting with their feet. A shame, and perhaps just a bad day but I won't be going back and expect it to change or disappear pretty soon. Good luck to them.


Agree with Chris M and disagree with the TO review, not fancy, not for business people, but great casual restaurant for Korean (not Japanese) food. Casual ie. = a bit like a Japanese isakaya resaurant. Usually full of youngish koreans and other asians. Nice to have the barbecue done for you on the burner at the center of each table. Good value /food quality /experiece ratio.


Good Value and large portions , if your hungry go for a set meal then you'll get 3 courses for £7.50 for lunch and I think £8.50 at night, if you can get in. Not the best Korean food around but good tasty hot chillies garlic style sauces in abundance. Can be expensive if you have barbecue though.
