Everything about this restaurant was good, until the chef forgot about the specified allergies. The manager was very apologetic and made several deductions from the bill, but allergic reaction was not worth all the gestures. Most unlikely to return

It was my birthday! The service was great, just the table on the lower ground floor wasn’t most convenient. The table is next to their till and they tend to hang our there and chat which is a bit disturbing. The only this that left a bit of weird taste is my month is the fast that after spending £60 per person they still charged us for “cakeage”.£2.50 when you bring in a small bday cake. I think that is excessive and not needed when the spent per person is more than £30.00.

Overall the food was delicious. One of the best meals in London.

Lovely interior and atmosphere. We had the 2 course set lunch menu - food was tasty but disappointing in terms of portion size - I don’t eat a lot but still felt like I could have had another meal. The mains were pretty small. One friend ordered from the main menu and her portion was significantly larger and better. Next time I wouldn’t waste money on the set lunch menu but just order straight from the main menu.

Food was excellent!! My sister’s first Korean and she loved it. The only let down was the service was mediocre, our main waiter seemed to never be around even though the restaurant was very quiet, so it took longer than it should’ve to order. The other thing is that plate sizes are quite small considering the price. But that’s london for you I suppose.

Amazing food, nice setting, lively music (but not too lively!). The only downside was the service - our first waiter must have gone on a break and we struggled to get the other’s attention, then when we did manage to speak to someone they didn’t speak much English and couldn’t understand my friend asking for water. Everything else was amazing though and would highly recommend!

My partner and I cane for bottomless brunch and sat outside the front because it was sunny. You get a welcome cocktail to start, a huge sharing board, an even biggest main and finished off with a love fresh dessert. Our waiters were very attentive and never left us with empty glasses, they were super nice too which makes all the difference to the overall experience.
The food was lovely, but for me too deep fried but that’s merely based on my preferences. My boyfriend loved every mouthful.
You just go here!

Friendly, attentive but not overly attentive staff. The food was delicious, we had about 6 small plates between 4 of us and all of them were very tasty and not overly spicy, we then had 4 large plates and shared those as well, we left feeling very full. The DJ started around 9.30pm and really brought the place alive, although it still wasn't too noisy. We will definitely be going back

Surpassed expectations. Freshly made food and had top ups for salads. We shared the Street Menu for two and were very happy with the quality and variety. Easily could accommodate another diner as we had leftovers, so we requested a takeaway bag. Staff were incredibly friendly, attentive and polite. Definitely coming back.

I wanted it to be much better than it was. The Korean was quite sanitised out of the experience. The staff were super nice and friendly, the restaurant space is nice enough, better upstairs than down. But the food is a bit lacklustre. The mandu were more like Chinese dumpling wrappers, too thick. But the flavour was nice enough. The bibimbap however was lacking in variety, the bulgogi tough and the egg far too cooked to stir in. Oh, and the cocktails we tried were all massively sweet :( ...yeah, after writing that, I guess I was even more disappointed than I realised!

Another great experience at JinnJuu - fabulous food (KFC, Bulgogoi Tacos, BBQ Chicken, etc, etc). friendly non-intrusive service. I also liked the idea of a Bin end section in the wine list - bottles starting at £15 - we had a lovely Ventlinger for a very reasonable £24. Thats an idea I'd like to see in other restaurants. Great night out.

I would say that the drinks were the star of this meal, the lychee prosecco drink, plum wine and various soju shots were tasty. I got the street food set meal with my friend, and as much as I want value for money, I felt that there was too much food. we didn't really have an appetite for the set meal desert. Speaking of the desert, it was very disappointing. The desert mimicking a choco pie (or orion pie) was dry and unexciting, whilst the only interesting thing about the cannoli were the sesame seeds. For £40 a head, I think they need to rethink the quantity to quality ratio. I would rather have fewer dishes at a higher quality. Finally, I would like to make a specific note that the pork belly was tough and the chicken uninspiring. I would expect more from a restaurant that has a michelin sticker outside and such a good reputation. Despite all of this, the waiters were attentive and lovely.
