My favourite Japanese BBQ restaurant serving super fine meat
Amazing experience but I have to say that the food was very good quality apart for the chicken.
Someone brought the wrong person to our table. When I showed her my booking information, she didn't even see my information, told me that I had booked the wrong branch and asked me to go to Oxford Circus.
Great dining experience. Great food, great staff, great prices. Would recommend!
We had a lovely meal, the food was very nice, and the atmosphere was great.
We were abit annoyed that they were quite forceful when trying to have the table back after about 2 hours. We ordered set meal for 4 and drinks and we felt it was quite rude that they kept telling us no rush, but we need the table back in 15 mins.
Fantastic experience. Really helpful service, and the manager was great in helping us with the menu and what to avoid due to allergies. The chefs were also great in cooking to our needs, would highly recommend Kintan!
I’ve been here several times and the food is always great. Unfortunately service was a bit off today, perhaps because it was really busy. Quite a few of our orders didn’t come and took a few promptings.
Amazing! Staff were really quick and attentive, food was delicious. Happy Hour all day meant we could eat a lot without spending too much. Had a really lovely time and will definitely come back!
I enjoyed my meal at Kintan! Even at happy hour prices, I don’t think it was especially good value for money, but it was a nice treat and very tasty. They have also taken a lot of COVID precautions and have a very efficient safety system, which I very much appreciated.
It was amazing food and experience.
And it was surprise that it was still doing eat out offer!
Thanks a lots.
Great experience. First time at a Japanese BBQ. Very similar to Korean. Very good explanation of what to do and how to cook your food. Great value for money with discounts for VAT and £10 offer.
Great food and great value with the eat out to help out discount. Harami steak was delicious, defo worth a try if you haven’t had it before. Garlic rice was a bit too strong so would stick to steamed rice next time.
Enjoy very much on their beef. And cheese with sweetcorn is great! yum!
Absolutely wonderful and everything was so flavourful. There was always a waiter around and ready to help, if called. No build up of plates as they aim to remove empty ones, as soon as. I’ve been to Kintan 5 times in the last 2 years and will definitely keep going back. They kept in line with government guildlines for Social Distancing, while still retaining their authenticity and well liked atmosphere
Great place for a date or going as a group. The activity of grilling your own meat is a memorable social activity. Fun for all ages.
It was a great experience, came here for my friends birthday! They brought out a little desert with a candle! She loved it! The food was also excellent and service was fantastic!! Will definitely be coming back for more with more people ! Love the concept of you can cook it yourself with friends!
Absolutely delicious food! Would highly recommend it for great value!
Delicious food and nice setting. Covid-measures were well done.
Always a really great experience - it’s more than just food! The food is DELICIOUS and it’s so much fun to grill the meat yourself! The green tea ice cream is amazing. The chicken basil sounds simple but it’s so, so good. 10/10 would go back x
A great place to try out Japanese BBQ. Fun, fairly straightforward, a bit expensive but worth it to celebrate a special occasion.
Very welcoming staff
Nice selection of food and drink
Will need to return when it’s happy hour
Food was great and good value, though service was stretched and difficult to get their attention.
Lovely food, brilliant service, helpful staff, it’s a shame the cocktail bar worker wasn’t working so we couldn’t have any. But we had a lovely time and will go again.
The food was very delicious and very value for money. The staff were very polite and helpful and the experience overall was nice and enjoyable. Only downside is that the grill is quite small considering we were a table of 5 so took some time to cook all the food we ordered but overall a very enjoyable and delicious experience
Great meal. Very good food quality. Attentive and friendly service. Good social distancing and hygiene standards. Would highly recommend
- Service was decent. Not great. Had to ask twice where our order was
- you will be treated by the way you look. E.g., age/gender something my friend and I experienced
Always a great dinning experience here
Told them that it was for a birthday but didn’t receive any service that was different - made no difference. The food served didn’t look anything like how it was on the menu. The food wasn’t authentic either, everything was marinated and salty. The waitress didn’t tell us that we could choose between marinated and non-marinated
Very nice food and selection of drinks. The staff were very friendly, albeit a little inattentive at times.
The food was great and I like the fact that you can cook your own to meat to how you want it, great for going out with some friends. You get a booth to sit at which is really nice for chatting with your friends. The range of meat is great and portion size is fantastic too. I was very full and happy with my time, will definitely be going back!
Experience wasn’t that bad but I would say the only let down was a bit the service.
The 15min waiting for our table when we had a clear booking for 9:15 making us eat even later wasn’t great. If they do have policies for maximum stay, seems like it actually that doesn’t really apply. Staff apologised multiple times for the delay which is fine but once we sat down, the wasn’t wasn’t even really cleaned properly and menus were re-used from previous customers (as this whole pandemic issue happening, give to new customers new menus would be ideal and not dirty ones from others and make sure the whole table was proper sanitised).
We placed our orders and everything seems fine.
I guess something like 5/7 minutes later a waitress came back to let us now that they run out of Japanese Sausages and they would replace them with Halloumi instead, but, if we were going for meat maybe it should replace with other meat or at least give us a list of different replacements which we would agree with maybe...?
After less than 20min that we sat down and while we were eating the “starters”, we were approached by another waitress mentioning that the kitchen was closing and if we wanted to order something else but we said we were ok.
The second lot of food was delivered but the waitress didn’t really explain that certain stuff such as the butter corns and butter with garlic were meant to be put on the grill together with the meat and their explanation for how long food should be cook seems quite in a rush like she had better stuff to do...we basically found out about some stuff towards the end of our meal.
Most of the food arrived in a good timing but we had to wait for a couple of dishes while all the others were there and that happened like halfway through our meal...a checkback on us to know if everything was fine or we were missing something would had been nice to be fair.
So overall not a tremendous experience, but service should defo improve.
Food is great.
I personally prefer the Holborn branch because the service is better, but the food is amazing whichever branch you visit. Me and my friends regularly eat at Kintan
Really good authentic food,lovely staff and such a wonderful sweet suprise for my husband's birthday!Deffo will recommend to friends :)
The best meats ive ever had
One of our fave restaurants in London. Best value for quality and quantity of food, especially during happy hour. There's always friendly service :)
Very safe well managed environment and the food and service is always fanstastic. Loved the Tongue.
absolutely amazing food and the staff couldn’t have been nicer. the nicest place i have been out to eat in a very long time
The food and service was amazing as usual
There needs to be aircon or some sort of airflow as the temp of the restaurant was very high
I assume as there's grills it will be
Apart from that it was great
I will return again for the 50th time
