* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

This “modern Korean” basement off Carnaby Street does a great line in “delicious but different food” served in “cool surroundings”: it “delivers on the staples – fried chicken, dumplings, etc – while more unusual modern interpretations also hit the target”, such as “terrific tofu sliders”. In June 2019, Korean-American TV chef Judy Joo severed her ties with the venture, but we’ve maintained the rating for the time being.

Korean-American TV chef Judy Joo “puts a fun – and delicious – twist on Korean food” at her “hidden gem” – a “lively and noisy” basement off Carnaby Street. Attractions include some of “the best Korean fried chicken in town and the rest of the food is damn good too”, but some feel that it’s “way too small to have a DJ” – you’ve been warned!

Fom Korean-American TV chef Judy Joo, this “buzzy” Korean bar (with DJ some nights) and basement restaurant off Regent Street, “instantly wipes away the cares of a busy work week”. “Great Korean fried chicken and prawn lollipops” are the standout items on a menu which is “that little bit different”.

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).

"The food here is of exceptional quality for the price and makes for a tremendous value for money proposition within Soho. The decor is quirky and the restaurant a little dark but the food is the star without a doubt and you really can't go wrong with the lunch menu - 100% worthy of a visit"
