Instantly I was wowed by the stunning decor and actually how small and cosy the place is. It was also full of Asian people, which can only be a good sign.
They handed us menus, which seemed a little unnecessary as there was only one thing on offer - but that was exactly what we came for. For £22.95 per person you get this lovely starter of vegetable mandu dumplings and Korean sushi called kimbap. I'm not a big sushi lover but they were fine, and the dumplings were incredible. More and more I'm being opened up to the incredible things you can do without meat in cooking if you have the know-how.
Being British, I expected that the staff would be hesitant to offer you more of the side orders, dips, rice and lettuce (which were unlimited) but they actually came to the table to ask us if we wanted anything else and - once they figured out we were 'the more the better' type of people - kept refilling any dishes that were close to empty. The beansprout mix was my personal favourite - could not get enough!
Throughout our meal, we were made to feel incredibly welcome and there was just a lovely atmosphere about the place. I think as the kitchen staff and servers don't have to worry about cooking they have far more time to pay attention to their customers and it really shows. I have literally nothing but praise for this place, by the time we were leaving we had already discussed when we were going to come back.
