Handy for students at the London Metropolitan University across the road, this dinky family-run Korean BBQ restaurant is a tight squeeze, so it’s worth turning up early or booking ahead to avoid the crowds. The menu is pretty short, but there are plenty of good things to be had, prices are refreshingly low and portions are massive – just check out the double-cooked KFC (Korean fried chicken) for size. BBQ fans have beef bulgogi and chicken kalbi, but also look out for the various takes on bibimbap, the katsu curries and the kimchi fried rice with beef (topped with a runny egg). If small plates are your thing, graze your way through the gyoza, kimchi buns, edamame spring rolls and pajeon seafood pancakes. Cash only.
