The mandus were amazing, the bibimbab was good but nothing to write home about.
Place was a bit loud - more like a bar than a restaurant. Which is fine, but I wouldn't go there for deep conversations.

The starters were delicious but unfortunately we waited nearly 1 hour for the mains to arrive despite repeatedly asking our waiter. We had theatre tickets so had less than 10 mins to eat them before needing to leave and then had to run to the theatre. Less than ideal

The Venue has a nice chilled trendy feel, it would be perfect if it were a little bigger in size. The food and service has always been amazing, on every occasion I’ve visited. Especially the reception and the down stairs waitress staff. Overall it’s a great restaurant with fabulous food, a decent wine and cocktail list. It’s affordable and the DJ takes it to another level...Ultimate fun and cool vibes!!

Vibe of restaurant is very trendy and a cool concept. The starters sharing board is delicious, especially the dumplings and the fried chicken is cooked to perfection. Mains are also tasty but too pricey.

I was really happy to see Makgeolli in the drink menu.
The food wasn't bad, but I personally prefer more classic Korean dishes. (Didn't really impressed me to have sliders or tacos with bulgogi.
Volume was good for the price.
Food service was really fast. But It was really clear that they wanted us out as soon as possible. Table allocation was limited for 1h 45 min for 2 people, and the waiters asked us so many times to remind this and made sure that we are out of the restaurant by then. It kind of killed the mood when you want to enjoy relaxing dinner.

Responded on January 7, 2020

Hi there, We are glad that the general experience of your visit was positive. I have to agree that Makgeolli is so underrated! Please do accept our apology if we have made you feel rush as we do operate a 1h 30min return time policy with tables of 2. We do, however, try to extend that if given any opportunity. We do hope that you could give us another try during weekdays when it's not as busy. K

The food is great itself, however, it is more of a fusion than Korean. As I have been to Korea a few times, I find the food here disappointing if I have to compare. And for what it costs, the food should taste more Korean as it is a "Korean restaurant" and the portions should be bigger, maybe a sharable size as Asian food itself is more about sharing than small single portions. Cocktails are great though. All in all, too pricey for the portion and the taste.

Responded on January 7, 2020

Hi Astrid, Thank you for your honest feedback. Quite rightly so, we are no where near traditional Korean. We do, however, encourage sharing as you suggested. And hence the large selection of small dishes. We are currently running a January promo with a tasting menu which is based on the said concept. We would be delighted if you so choose to give us another try. K

Fabulous from start to finish - adult food was terrific and the kids menu was both excellent value and a great way to introduce a 5 year old to Korean flavours.

Staff super friendly and dealt with a child's tantrum (wanted to go to the Golden Arches instead) on arrival with ease.

Thank you and we'll be back for sure.

My wife and I have tried Jinjuu before, where we had a great time, which is why on this occasion decided to bring a bigger party with us. The restaurant was busy when we got there, which is why our reservation got pushed back, however the Jinjuu staff handled the situation very well and provided us a space to sit and have a drink before heading to the table. Food was tasty, staff were friendly, the bill was reasonable to what I would of expected to pay

The service was mixed, front of house was unwelcoming but our waitress was helpful and friendly. The starters were good, fried chicken, fries. The fish tacos were nice but lacked fish! The bibimap were nothing special. Saying all that still would go back as a nice evening.

My first time and here and, apart from the awful Christmassy music played a bit too loud, it was an exceptional dinner: packed with unusual tasty surprises. Nice vibe and very politie and pleasant service. I'll definitely go again, though might sit away from the speakers! Btw, don't let that put you off - it was, all round, very good indeed.
