“Unexpectedly good” Korean and Japanese food, including “wonderful sushi”, justifies submitting to the “confined” seating and inevitable wait for a table at this no-bookings outfit near Finsbury Park station. “It might be small, crowded and bustling – but that’s exactly how food from the Orient should be served!”.

Squeezing into this popular East Asian outfit near Finsbury Park station is “a bit like eating in a corridor”. But it’s worth it: “the sushi is brilliant and the Korean food out of this world”.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
