Sonamu serves up all the Korean classics, but if you don’t know much about Korean food try the Korean BBQ offering up different kinds of grilled meats served with a selection of sauces. There are a lot of options, even in their seating; you can choose between a seat at a traditional Korean table, with your feet in a pit below, or at an ordinary western-style table.

Kimchikin focuses on “fast food” style Korean fare with a very obvious focus on fried and grilled chicken wings. But that’s not all. They have sizzles, noodles and rice-based mains on the menu too. It has a colourful Korean touch with K-pop music videos and sticky notes with messages adorning the walls. It’s cute, it’s quick, it’s cheap and it’s tasty.
