Went there with a friend and loved it all. The food was still great and the ambience was perfect. Will definitely be going back there again.
Bad Customer Service. Not worth it.
Bottom line up front: There are so many other Korean BBQs in London don’t make the mistake we did. Food is good (not mind blowing) but good so that’s not the issue. The service on the other hand? Not worth going to this restaurant with bad customer service when you’re going to be spending at least $200 USD for drinks and BBQ for three. Pick another place in SoHo or Covent Garden. Guarantee the restaurants of that caliber won’t kick you out while you are in the middle of having your meal like this place did. I tried to give the restaurant the benefit of the doubt and wanted to like it but the rudeness of not just not one but 2-3 of their staff is something I’ve never experienced before. Read the other reviews and you’ll see it’s not the first time people have encountered this type of bad service at Gogi. Advice to Gogi? Train your employees in customer service and tact and don’t accept reservations after 1:30pm if you’re going to be forcing your patrons and paying guests out less than an hour after their reservation began. Won’t ever be going back.
Good food & variety.
Many vegetarian options.
Service was little slow.
Place was packed & noisy. A good ambience.
Good food, friendly service and an attractive venue.
I enjoyed the food, but honestly the service was so poor that it really affected our overall enjoyment of the meal. The waiting staff were not very attentive at all, we were served the wrong platter of meat, had to repeatedly ask for the grill to be cleaned or replaced, were never offered drinks after we finished our first, and basically we were constantly having to try and get someones attention, and remind them of things we had already asked for. I won't be going back and wouldn't be recommending it to anyone either.
excellent food, great value, staff very profesional and kind...
Nice food and atmosphere
Great service, menu is fairly priced and with a member of staff cooking for you all you gotta do is enjoy the presence and food
Great food and experience of a Korean barbecue. Lovely area nearby for drinks after too!
Authentic Korean food. Been there about 10 times and never disappoints. Service needs refining but this is just a minor thing. Very enjoyable experience . We have taken friends and everyone has always had a great experience.
The food was more than good.
Service was timely and not disturbing.Would come again.
Really good food and great atmosphere, I think service charge should be removed when we cook our own food
The food was really great and my wife ans I thoroughly enjoyed our first experience at a Korean Restaurant.
Went for traditional Korean BBQ, food was very tasty and service was great if you like the BBQ cooked for you in front of you. Peraonally would've preferred if they'd give the option of allowing you to cook yourself (guess partly my fault as I could've asked) as the meal seemed kind of rushed.
Food prices were good value but drinks were really expensive (even for non-alcoholic drinks) for tiny portions.
Very pleasant restaurant with good Korean food!
We have been a few times and never disappointed. Good food and popular.
Really nice experience in a atmosphere. Will definitely come back
The spicy meat platter was to die for! Also the spicy squid starter. I’m general food was good and I would go again but not in any rush to go back. Service was average at the start but then got better as our waitress began to talk to us. Overall it was a fun experience and food was good so I would recommend!
Great food, lovely and friendly staff, service is relatively quick. Everything seems fresh and as a bonus point for not smelling like barbecue afterwards!
We booked a birthday meal at Gogi largely on the basis of its high OpenTable rating — and definitely were not disappointed.
We started with a seafood pancake, fried chicken and some mixed pickles, which are not only classics, but provide great benchmarks for comparison with other eateries. They were all winners. The chicken was deliciously crisp on the outside, flavoursome and succulent on the inside. The pancake was just the right mixture of soft and crisp, but with a bigger hit of seafood than is often the case. Pickles provided contrast and crunch, without excess acidity.
For mains we focused on the barbecued meats — cooked on a burner in the centre of the table. The rib-eye was delicious, and cooked exactly as ordered, and the pork belly was so good we ordered seconds. We managed to find room for a seafood bibimbap, which was delicious, though too moist to create the usual crust — or perhaps we stirred too soon.
Puddings included Western and Korean options, but we were done.
Overall, we were very impressed. The food was excellent, and side, particularly were much better value than some of the Korean barbecue restaurants in central London. As Arnie said, we'll be back.
We were three mins late as parking was a little difficult and the man from the restaurant called me up asking where I was. I said I have just parked I am walking in... he had a go at me for being a total of 5 mins late on a SUNDAY where there was hardly anyone in the restaurant. The food was very small portions and very bland a very expensive and bland/boring g dinner
First time visitor. Came with my family for my brothers 40th birthday. Definitely recommend booking beforehand as it gets busy. Food is delicious. I'm vegan but my family eat everything and we all left very happy. Staff were lovely. Would for sure go again. Great for dates, catch ups and occasions.
My friends and I had a wonderful time at Gogi. The food was amazing, especially the BBQ, and the service was excellent. The staff treated was very well and even helped was take pictures.
Great food & good service. A little surprised that side dishes of kimchi were not free with your meal like how it is in the US and there are not that much variety of side dishes to choose from. But I will still come back the next time I visit London. My favorite Korean BBQ place!
Nice atmosphere, good value for money. Would definetly recommend.
The food was really good. The staff friendly and the atmosphere was very nice. They did forget to give us one of our side orders but we also forgot about it as well. We didn’t remember until we had finished eating but as we didn’t receive it they took it off the bill. Would definitely recommend that you go if you are looking for Korean food.
A lovely well maintained restaurant. The menu is sufficiently large the range of drinks available is similarly large with some distinctly korean offerings as you would expect.
The atmosphere is great and happily the noise isn't too much.
The service is exceptional with table side service should you order barbeque, the staff are very capable and polite. Barbeques have their own extractor fans so you wont get hot or smokey in case that is a concern.
Food quality and taste was excellent and I would happily reccomend it to anyone, particularly the beef!
It has been our family dining spot. However, we noted quality has dropped recently and flavour of food inconsistent of late.
Overall was fine.
They do not serve the real korean bbq. Service is really bad and waiters are arrogante and not helpful. Ypu have to pay for everything that usually in included something more. Our meat was not cooked and really bad.
Lovely food and staff! Would recommend. Will definitely be going again
Great food. Great evening. Would definitely go back.
Good to get this time booking as always full as 7.30pm happy to return for another try 👍
Friend from high school visiting
Lovely experience, friendly staff, lovely atmosphere. Definitely will be back.
Food was average. Our server wasn't that attentive, i.e. one person ordered the bbq while others got a standard entree. The bbq was not even powered on until after the three entrees arrived. This caused the food to still have to cook while other three were eating their entrees. The menu was definitely interesting but to be honest I'm not sure I would go back . This is probably not indicative of the normal experience here but it was unfortunately ours.
Excellent korean food and perfect service. I really recommend it and kids friendly.
Great food, very delicious and friendly staff. Love the BBQ concept embedded into the tables
The food here is great! Decor is lovely and our service was good! The only things about this place is the time keeping is very strict, when you book a table you have a limited time there. So when your time is coming up they will grill your food for you and serve you to rush you out. I completely understand that they are running a business but it would be good to know when booking that this is a strict time window, because I'd hate to be the person after who booked and the other person is going over their time slot. Best to just know beforehand. Especially if you know you always have a late friend or relative!
Great food and service
The food was very good, fresh and tasty, with several different options. Prices were also fair. Nice location near the Regent's canal.
