Went here last night for the first time. I have heard good things from several of my colleagues (I work in a Korean company and am half Korean) so decided to pay it a visit.
From the outside you cannot tell what this restaurant will be like at all as its sign hangs halfway across a newsagent and the restaurant itself is in the basement. However once you get downstairs it is beautiful. As others have mentioned, it could well be a nice restuarant in Seoul.
Best word to describe the staff is professional. Not incredibly friendly but certainly not unfriendly. There to help if you need them though.
The menu is extensive and carries almost everything you mind fancy from Korean cuisine. We went for PaJeon (Pancakes) and Grilled mandu (particularly nice) to start, and then Pork Bulgogi for main (which was traditionally cooked on BBQ in front of us and was very tasty) and finished off with Dwenjang Soup and rice (which is bean paste soup and alot more appealing than it sounds, very refreshing). All in all the food was great as was the Decor. Fairly expensive but worth it. Only gripe was it's £15 for a bottle of soju (korean spirit) which is around £2 in Korea, but around £10 usually here.
Not much to choose between here a Arang, my previous favourite Korean. Why not try both!

Im Half Korean, Half English and absolutely love Korean Food. Been to quite a few Korean Restuarants in London but i have to say this is definately my Favourite. The decor, service and food are all very good in my opinion.
Its very modern inside, but not too big so its a good idea to book if going at peak times. Waitresses are friendly and helpful. Advised us not to order as much as we did as we wouldnt be able to finish it and they were right! Pa jeon (pancakes) here are delicious as are most of the BBQ dishes. All dishes are freshly prepared and full of flavour. Its not cheap but still good value for good food. Chuck in a bottle of Soju (korean spirit) and you cant go wrong.
