Tucked away down Chapel Market this Korean 'tapas' joint is owned by top Korean mixologist Taeyeol Kim, so the cocktails are as good as the food. The menu covers everthing from Korean fried chicken through to kimchi pancakes and tteok.bokki - rice cake stew. Look out for Friday regional Korean specials.
This Korean restaurant is in a prime space at the top of Kingly Court and features a menu from the people behind TA TA Eatery - so you already know you're in for something special. Aiming for an LA Koreatown vibe, the corndogs are top-notch and their kimchi stone pot is showstopping.
This Korean pub is all decked out in retro 70s style, with food including Makchang BBQ and Hongdae chicken as well as kimchi jeon, bo ssam and tteok bok ki rice cakes - alongside plenty of highballs to drink.
Bunsik specialises in Korean Street Food - namely corn dogs, cupbap (rice in a pot with toppings) and Ddukbokki (fried rice cakes) - and those corn dogs have become hugely popular in London.
Sollip is from husband and wife team Woongchul Park (formerly at The Ledbury and Koffman's) and Bomee Ki (former pastry chef at The Arts Club). They're marrying the team's European cooking style with Korean influences in a fine-dining, paired back approach.
Here at Koba it's all about DIY - so the focus is on Korean tableside barbecuing but there are also hotpots, bibimbab and kimchi on the menu as well.
Sweet soy fried chicken, barbecue chicken, chicken noodle soup… Linda Lee (who is also behind On The Bab) is behind this Korean restaurant, based in Covent Garden and all about the poultry.

This sees Bjorn Van Der Horst (Eastside Inn) and Omar Romero (Rhodes Twenty Four, Rosewood) taking over the dining room on the 23rd floor of the Hilton Metropole. Expect a modernist Japanese pub with food to match. Plus Kirin beer K-slurpys and clay barrel aged cocktails served on airline trolleys.

On the Bab - which translates as served 'on the rice' - is East London's first anju restaurant (which according to Wikipedia is the traditional Korean cuisine of consuming food with alcohol, so it's got our vote) offering Korean sharing dishes - and a rather lethal-sounding cocktail list. The 30 seater restaurant won't take reservations and will be open every day for lunch and dinner.
