I recently dined at this restaurant, and while the food was undoubtedly good, it didn't quite reach the level of greatness I had hoped for. The flavors were delightful, but some dishes were not the best I've ever tasted, but others left me wanting more.
The service was pleasant, but it didn't go above and beyond to make the experience extraordinary. It was polite and efficient, but lacked that special touch that can elevate a dining experience.
One significant drawback was the restaurant's refusal to accept card payments. In today's cashless society, this is a considerable disadvantage and can be inconvenient for patrons.
Another point of concern was the portion sizes. All three of us at the table agreed that they were surprisingly small, especially considering that both sides and mains were priced similarly. It left us feeling like we didn't quite get our money's worth in terms of quantity.
In summary, the restaurant offers good food, but it is not the best I tried, with pleasant but not exceptional service. The inconvenience of not accepting card payments and the small portion sizes were definite drawbacks that left me with mixed feelings about the overall dining experience
Came into the place and noticed it had a huge ceiling space, which is great as it felt really open. The food choices are varied and taste great. The BBQ options are nice and also allow you to do it yourself, we opted for Set A, which included chicken, beef, pork belly and a large piece or beef. The marinated beef and chicken were great, the pork belly lacked some flavour and the big chunk of beef was just not fit for the Korean BBQ as it was not marinated either. Overall, it is a reasonably cheap place to come with a group of people to relax.
Food quality was average and the chicken in the hot pot rice (bibimbap) was tough and dry. The portions were small. Some staff were polite and friendly but not the one who took our order.
Great atmosphere with retro style seating, was like being back in school. This is a popular Korean restaurant but couldn’t give it the full five stars as it was slightly let down with the food. Couldn’t finish the curry as it was quite poor, the rest of the food was nice, especially the stone pot rice.
I love the restaurant space, cozy but feel open at the same time. The food is really on point and you should ask the staffs if they can reduce the spicy level of the spicy dishes. Mine was not spicy at all and taste great.
The price is very decent. I and my friends paid 15 quids each and we can’t eat anything else after because the portion is huge.
The highlight is the staff - Jinny, he is super friendly and delicate.
I highly recommend Topokki if you are craving some Korean food.
