Hi! So the only minus was that we had to wait for a long time until we could order our food, we were the first in the restaurant but people got their food before we were even able to order. But then a second waiter arrived and all was good. But the food came quite fast and it was delicious!... More

I have been there twice and ordered the Bulgogi Beef twice. It is fantastic and the side dishes are delicious too. After our meal the cook came to greet us, which was very kind. If you are looking for true Korean food taste, go to Akaraka.

I don't know Korean food well but I liked this place a lot. We had bulgogi, a seafood noodle dish and soju. Friendly service and good food, we will be back.

After we enjoyed the great experience of Korean food in London with our own cooking island at our table, we checked out Akaraka. The reservation and reception was very friendly in this small restaurant with some additional tables outside on the terrace. There are no cooking islands at the table but we enjoyed as starters wonderful dumplings and Korean omlettes.... More

After a first try at lunch, we decided to come back for dinner last saturday. We ordered some staters and a main course each. Both starters (Mandu and Paejon) where freshly done and where really nice. As main we had Beef Ssam Bulgogi and Spicy beef soup. Both were excellent (tasty) even if not as spicy as the dish would...

The food was average and unfortunately the service was worse. The disinterested waitress never smiled once. And when we paid there was some confusion with the change given. She had given back too much money and returned to ask for it back (a genuine mistake). But the attitude was what was surprising, no apology, no smile. I hope to return... More

Seriously, I know they are advertised as a "Korean and Japanese" restaurant, but it's really more of a Korean restaurant here. Just that many people who live here have never eaten Korean food so I suspect it's a way to be a bit more marketable. I love Korean food, ate it almost everyday living in NY, and am soooo devoid...

While the interior design is not particularly fancy, we can really recommed the restaurant, food and service. A good choice of Korean food, well presented in the menu, including authentic Korean drinks. The food was tasty and the service friendly and attentive, with the owner passing at each table with some friendly words. We will come back with pleasure.
