Food and drink
The tabletop barbecues are put to good use grilling classic cuts of beef, pork, chicken, squid and prawns. I always order a large banchan (selection of vegetable side dishes and kimchi) and adore both the bibim naengmyun (buckwheat noodles with hot, spicy sauce) and chapchae (stir-fried glass noodles with vegetables). Try a smooth soju to drink.
Stylishly homely – it’s much more attractive inside than out, but aim for the front dining room.
Bright, friendly, helpful, encouraging and usually rapid.
Just a few steps from Regent and Carnaby Streets – handy when shopping.
Order prudently and you can have a fairly cheap meal, but prices vary widely. Samhab, a traditional Korean sociality of steamed pork, spicy raw skate and kimchi, is £25, whereas straightforward bibimbap is £8.50.
