Korean
An intriguing Eastern restaurant in amongst the boutiques and bars of trendy Fitzrovia, Koba is a very different dining prospect. The beautifully burnished tones of the trend-driven dining room give a luxuriant feel to a cuisine more usually associated with casual eating, the setting as suited to romantic dinners or business lunches as to eating with friends. Koba’s speciality of the Korean table BBQ gives eating out a spicy touch of drama with food cooked at your table – a real talking point. Additionally, a varied and comprehensive menu of Korean specialities offers a real change from the more usual Asian cuisines of China, Thailand and Japan.

The place was good, the food as well, but the quantity was questionable. Still would recommend it to others. Service was great as well. Everyone was very polite and available

We were taken to the table 30mins later, and kept on being reminded that our table is for 1.5hr. Their approach was really rude as they wasted our time in the beginning so we argued that we get an extension of time as the delay was caused by them. At the end they just gave the bill without even asking if we wanted to order anything else. Everything was rushed. Food wise - beef really good, however seafood was really disappointing.

The place is very elegant. Each table has its own BBQ, within the table. The waiters will cook the food for you in front of you or you can cook it yourself. There are also items on the menu which will be prepared by the chef and served normally. Service was good. Only strange thing is that each table has its own extractor fan, which comes down and blocks your view of the person opposite; not a major thing. Definitely a different experience from your usual restaurant. Food was good.

Having been to Korea dozens of times, I would rate this above average. The calbi should be marinated which it wasn't. The cucumber kimchi (Oi sobegi) was very good. You don't find this often in Korean restaurants in London.

Had the Koba bbq section and the food was very tasty. We also ordered the garlic rice which when it arrived was fairly small portion for the price.

Great food, but sadly their service let them down. They forgot some of our order (but left it on the bill!) and weren’t all that helpful when the table next to us split red wine all over my partner.

Great, tasty offerings, almost all cooked by waiters at your table. A bit assembly-line and chairs are not comfortable. Varied appetisers and meat selections

Very good food and a great atmosphere. As this is a Korean BBQ restaurant, it can get pretty warm in the restaurant. Apart from that, everything at the restaurant is really nice.

Went for my birthday dinner and was everything I thought it would be.
Staff were attentive and checking on us, helping us cook the food (first timers!), food was amazing as well. Couldn’t fault it at all!

Definitely a great eat! but rather than get the lunch BBQ meal, get it off the main menu - would be more worth it.

Also we missed out on the final soup that was part of our lunch because we forgot and the waitress didn't remind us when we asked for the bill (could barely hear/understand what she was saying, she was very quiet)

Lovely experience! Great food! If you looking for something a bit different be sure to try it.
Only down side was that service was a bit slow and I’m pretty sure our waitron would have rather have been somewhere else but other than that, it was great!
