Please note, Jindalle is now closed. Time Out Food & Drink editors, March 2016.
Jindalle’s location, just off Leicester Square in a street filled with cheap but cheerless eats, isn’t a great start. Its exterior gives little inkling of what lies inside, but don’t be put off: this small, unassuming barbecue restaurant offers very decent Korean food at moderate prices, served by quietly efficient staff who are happy to advise novices. Everything about the place is understated; the interior is pleasant rather than special, with oversized chairs cramming the long narrow space. Nevertheless, the predominantly Korean clientele park themselves at tables fitted with barbecues, usually opting for a set meal. Our choice, marinated beef, was part of an £8.90 pre-theatre special, which included rice, miso soup and a pretty trio of fermented salads; it was cooked to perfection by our waiter. In contrast, an accompanying kimchi pancake was greasy and bland, and barbecued belly pork, while tasty, was served plain and in a paltry portion. Still, a side of cabbage kimchi happily filled the hunger gaps. On the next table, three friends were sharing an immense and tempting-looking dumpling hotpot, but the huge selection of barbecued meats is what to choose in this genial space.

Nice restaurant with reasonable price. I think the drinks are cheaper than other places. I like marinated beef and yukgaejang, taste really good~!
My friend highly recommended this place and i had chance to visit today. We had mixed beef BBQ and it was incredibly amazing!!! It was very soft and tasty. The staff told me that the meat would be vey hard if it is over cooked. He served all dishes very patiently. He said it is not easy to control if we cook by ourselves. (the meet was cooked in the table with nice roaster.) I highly recommend this place if you are looking for a nice experience.
Worst Korean food I have ever had in the entire London and a complete rip-off as well!! The beef barbeque we ordered was as tough as rubber. One of our friends nearly felt pain in his teeth. Other dishes such as the tofu soup and stir fried noodle with seafood, which came in an unamazingly small portion, were full of artificial flavours. Don't understand the favorable comments below. I haven't shared my thoughts about restuarants in the past but with this one I think I would definitely need to do so. Would never go back.
The seafood pancake was great and so was the fun BBQ. Central location and reasonable prices, a no fuss, chilled resturant that many people seem to enjoy. When Korean people choose to eat there, that really tells us something!
nice korean style restaurant in london. so missing the bbq meat. the price is accpetable and even cheaper than any other similar oriental restaurant in London.
I had seafood pancake and lots other dishes,I love it there, price is good, service were good!! will be back again for sure!!!
I like Korean food very much and I have been to many Korean restaurants in London. Jindalle is the best I have ever been. We had Korean BBQ cooked in our table with excellent service. The roster was very modern it was very different from gas cooker which I have seen in most Korean restaurants. The food there was more than excellent. We had combination BBQ and seafood pancake as a starter.
