“A good stab at proper Korean food” – these “nicely buzzing”, K-pop styled pit-stops are “not subtle” but score points for their punchily flavoured bites (the fried chicken is the fave rave), served “cheaply and quickly”.

This K-pop styled, Korean street-food group has a “short and very tasty menu” of “freshly cooked and great value bites”. The minimalist and buzzy outlets across central London “continue to shine”: in particular the WC2 branch is “a good option in Covent Garden”.

“Amazingly tasty bites” (“very good chicken” is the standout) keeps these “fun, modern and minimalist”, K-pop-styled street food joints “crowded and bustling”; expect “lots of directional haircuts among fellow diners”.
