Amazing brunch set! The waiters were all really friendly, and the overall atmosphere was really nice. Would definitely go again, their amazing mango bingsu made the perfect end to a great brunch.

I've been to Jinjuu many times now because the food is so excellent. In general, we love to explore the starters and only occasionally get to the mains. Tonight was no exception. The bul go gi tacos, the tofu "lollipops" and the Korean fried chicken were amazing, but in truth all of the starters were great. I love the environment but at some point the music got turned up which made it a bit loud. And the bathrooms never fail to confuse as they are labeled with a pepper and a clam. It's your guess which is which. But overall the food is consistently wonderful, the service is very good, and the atmosphere is fun. Going to Jinjuu is a real treat.

Hello Joseph, Thank you for coming back time and time again. I do agree with you that small dishes are so much more fun to enjoy. My personal new favourite is the tofu lollies! We shall see you again soon. K

This is my 5th time at the restaurant this year, each time visiting with different people, family member and friends. Each time is as good as the last, jinjuu never disappoints! The mandoo and the kfc are definitely my standout, must-order dishes but you really can’t go wrong!! I’ve yet to try their brunch menu but it looks delicious too, so hopefully soon!

The food was pretty good but quite pricey - same for the wine. For nearly £200 between the 3 of us (only 1 bottle of wine, no cocktails etc), you’d want better quality food and service. Overall it is good but small things let it down. The chap who brought the food to our table was very rude but our waitress was very professional. A mixed bag I’m afraid but worth a visit for sure

We arrived early for our reservation so had a drink at the bar. Staff were very friendly and showed us to our table almost as soon as we’d got our drinks. Staff took our order quickly, gave us table water without asking and kept it topped up throughout the meal. Food was DELICIOUS, our first time having Korean and we loved it, our waitress was great at explaining what everything was. Had starters and main, and we were asked if we wanted dessert but needed to leave to get to a theatre show. The staff member immediately went to get out bill and we were done in plenty of time, but without feeling like we were being rushed out. Great experience, would recommend and go again!

Friendly lady showed us to our table and an attentive waiter came promptly for our drinks order. The short rib was meaty and rich. The chilli prawns arrived cold and lacked chilli. The deep fried chicken was amazing and crispy. The fries with shreds of short rib and cheese looked impressive and went down quickly. The snickers dessert was shared and was good, not too chocolately. Overall, really good service and food was generally really good with a couple of duff areas.

A flop eating here for me, from using the spp booking the table, I wanted to increase guest numbers. I tried 3 times but it still came back as confirming with the same number of ppl. In the last minute I called them by phone. I did state it was a Birthday meal celebration but as we were there I realised it was not noticed. Customer care was not good as I had felt uncomfortable and felt rushed . I think it was not just reminded on the app but verbally twice as soon as we arrived a few minutes earlier. The waiting staff were mostly leaning against a wall n doing nothing. The woman training a waiter was overwhelmingly loud. Food presented ok but really was tasteless. I was on my last couple of spoonfuls when a waitress prematurely brought our mains and my wife was gathering some plates just so she could plonk down the plates of food. It was like a shambles from then on as at that time I couldn't believe that there were still a few larger empty tables all night and the had the finasity to try rushing their customers. Toilets were filthy like the state of busy cheap bar's toilet with broken locks wet puddled floor with rubbish everywhere but without the graffiti. We went to a cafe nearby to make up the disappointment.
