Time Out says

Yori – meaning ‘cooked food’ in Korean – is located slap bang in the middle of theatreland, right next to the Harold Pinter Theatre and down the road from Piccadilly Circus station.

These days there are a lot of Korean food outlets in central London, however, Yori offers up a menu of approachable dishes with lots to choose from. To start with try a seafood kimchee jeon (basically a seafood pancake) and follow up with bulgogi, a thinly sliced barbequed meat.

If you fancy going a bit traditional, or more adventurous, you can order a jeongol, a giant hot pot cooked at your table, for which you can choose ingredients to add to your own steaming broth. There’s also the option of tableside grilling for Korean barbeque.

Great place if you fancy Korean BBQ and Soju!  I highly recommend also trying out the oxtail soup and glass noodles. Staff are very attentive even during busy times. Found them checking up on us to make sure we was ok and even topped up our kimchee while we waited. I've been back many times for my birthday, gatherings or just for a quick bite. The owner and their staff now welcome us like family. Great food, great vibes lots of fun!

The best top of korean restaurant in london ! Tasty and speciall ! What i most love about this restaursnt is korean BBQ set thank you guys x


I agree with the consensus here, Yori has excellent Korean food. This was actually my first dabble into the world of Bibimbaps and Kimchi, and I loved it. We were in a bit of a rush as the Harold Pinter theatre was beckoning (it's next door by the way), and the staff we're super, delivering our tasty food within minutes. It's 2mins from Piccadilly Circus and right in the hart of the theatre district. Do it.

Fantastic food and service. It bit crowded, but all staffs keep struggle to gave us quality of survice. So if you guys have little bit of patience, you will never forget this most high quality Korean restaurant in London. It reminds me my mother's cuisine.


Excellent Korean food, just a few steps from Picadilly square. Hidden away from the hungry tourists, a small Korean restaurant serves Korean BBQs; you can always ask to bring you the meat & the vegetables raw and be cooked in the middle of your table. Just be aware of the smoke that goes out, as you might end up smelling like a pork! Delicious hot pots are also available here through great variaty. A bit pricy though for the portions that you get. Apart from the price, one of the best Korean spots I have ever tried!

I visited this restaurant few days ago and I am very happy to see that Time Out listed this venue! I visited this restaurant before "who's afraid of virginia woolf" theater, and had a stone bowl bibimbob. Time, service, and quality of food were perfect. I had wonderful experience. Veggies were fresh, spicy pork belly was beyond delicious, spicy source that you add to taste was cherry-on-top, perfect. The restaurant was full, the table next to mine was doing Korean BBQ, it smelled and looked great. We are planning to revisit soon to experience Korean BBQ. PLUS, the owner welcomed me and my friends well and staffs were so friendly and funny, they are so easy to get along with - specially, the one with nose piercing. Five stars given, and I highly recommend this restaurant! 

I recently visited this place. I was firstly amazed with the real Korean bbq which i felt it is better than any other korean restaurants. Also, all staffs were kind and hard-workin. Strongly recomend to visit here!!
