Jinjuu, meaning “PEARL”, is London’s premier modern Korean food restaurant with celebrity chef, Judy Joo, at the helm.
With a menu encompassing both traditional and contemporary fare, highlights include the selection of “Anju” (that’s food that you eat while you drink) such as tacos, Bulgogi-style Sliders and our mouthwatering Carnitas Fries; Ssam sharing platters of succulent Bo Ssam Pork Belly, Braised Short Rib, and grilled Sea Bass amongst others; and of course the famed Korean Fried Chicken, which no-one should leave without trying. The ground floor bar offers a more casual dining environment to enjoy Jinjuu’s delicious cuisine.
