My husband and I visit this restaurant regularly, as do my friends and I. We all love this place ... the food; the service; and above all; the friendliness.

It is my all time favourite place of choice to eat ... hands downs !!

I have never had a bad meal, or a bad experience here ... not ever, and neither have anyone else I have ever encountered.

I implore you to try this place out - IT IS AMAZING !!!! :))

After wanting to try something different and reading the reviews on london-eating I booked a table at the Ko Gu Ryo in Staines on Friday night to celebrate my friends 50th birthday and our 19th wedding anniversary.

It is not a meal per say it is a eating experience with friends.

We ordered three different starters, dumplings salmon and wasabi and fish and spring onion pancake. They came our individually and we shared each course thus trying different flavours. The flavours were exquisite throughout every course, presentation and attention to detail was stunning.

The owner Mr Cho was polite and he and his staff looked after us wonderfully and were there for advice when needed and stood back and let us enjoy our evening. Our main courses of marinated beef, lamb, and chilli belly pork were barbecued on the table in front of us and again one at a time so we had this sharing experience.

We tried Kimchi for the first time which was great. As we were celebrating special occasions Mr Chos chef cooked us a special noodle dish that we knew nothing about . this again was superb. Fantastic flavours, a very fair price. We were there about 2 hours and it was a lovely reed evening. You had plenty to eat without feeling stuffed. The jasmine tea we had to accompany the meal was superb and very light.

I just hope that he goes for strength to strength. However hope we can book a table. Our friends sent us a text last night complimenting the evening as a food and taste experience that was so enjoyable.

Thank you for a lovely evening Mr Cho and you team.

I am not one to write reviews but felt compelled to write this one after our third visit to Ko Gu Ryu in the past year - this time to celebrate our daughter's 100 day birthday. As always it was fantastic.

My wife is Korean and has travelled and lived all over the world with the past 4 years being spent here in London. Her opinion is that Ko Gu Ryu is the best and most authentic Korean restaraunt in London. The food is aways excellent, service is brilliant and as always the staff were happy, polite and genuinely want you to enjoy your visit to their restaurant.

I would recommend this restaraunt wholeheartedly, its lovely and a great place to take friends and family - definitely try the Osam Bulgogi...

Not having tried Korean food previously, it was with some intrigue that we approached the premises on a Tuesday evening. To my surprise, the restaurant was already full but we were greeted immediately by friendly staff who asked us to wait just a few moments. The atmosphere seemed just perfect, a slight 'buzz' of chatter but both peaceful and calming at the same time.

We were escorted through to a secluded area which made things feel very 'private', almost screened-off from the rest of the restaurant but not so that we felt isolated or ignored in any way. On the contrary, a steady stream of staff attended to our requests and questions, every question being answered politely and in a very friendly manner, even an explanation being offered to describe exactly where certain dishes originate.

The starter (dumplings) was, without doubt, the best I've had anywhere, perfectly cooked and tasting divine.

When the main dishes were served, they were cooked on a B-B-Q in the centre of the table so we could watch them and savour the smells. The king prawns were, again, the best I've had, while the beef was top-quality and the side dishes gave things that little variation in taste that's needed.

The service was prompt, friendly, polite and attentive without being pushy. The food was something just that little bit different and all-round, we throroughly enjoyed our time there.

Would we recommend to friends? Without a doubt. Will we be coming back to Ko Gu Ryo? Oh yes, definitely.
