Cah-chi Korean Restaurant in Earlsfield, London, is a fun and buzzy place for group dining. Located on Garratt Lane, Cah-chi has a bright green shop front and a slightly more subdued neutral interior with polished wooden floors, taupe walls and trendy wallpaper. The vibe here is down-to-earth, and we love the traditional table-barbecues which are fantastic for dinner parties. You can byo wine here for only £3 per bottle corkage, and the menu is filled with favourites such as the Man-du soup – a homemade pork and vegetable dumpling broth; the barbecued pork belly served with sesame oil and salt; and the fantastically named O-jing-o Dup-bab – fried calamari and vegetables in a spicy sauce served with rice.
£25 and under

A stone throw and a hop around the corner from my casa in Wandsworth this place was worth a try as it had raving reviews. Unfortunately as soon as I ate there I threw up in their bathroom, I don't think it was the food ... I wasn't feeling so hot when I walked in.. My husband loved it. I didn't get to fully enjoy my visit so I would swing by here and give it another chance. Note it can get...more
Enjoyed this place. BUT.
Ok let's start from the beginning: I never ate korean BBQ out of Shanghai, and I really wanted to repeat the experience. The problem is that the only good korean place in London seems to be out of London. Yeah, I can't consider SW18, wimbledon as London, sorry. I tried to ask to my friends "hey, let's eat korean bbq in wimbledon", they just told me NO. Lucky me my...more
I really wanted to like this place. The starters we got were the japchae and dokboki. Both portions were so tiny it was embarrassing. We also got the kalbi, samgyupsal, and chicken. The chicken was not that great, but the kalbi and samgyupsal were good.
Overall, the portions are ridiculously tiny for the price you're paying. I suggest you head to New Malden if you want the best Korean food in...more
The service was brilliant. I'm not sure the same was true of all the servers around, but our waitress had a very sincere smile, even when she didn't fully understand what I was saying.
The barbecue pork was good and I enjoyed the spectacle of it being cooked at the table. But a lot of the other dishes which made up the set menu were small and uninspiring. And the leaves of the salad were...more
Absolutely brilliant. The best korean BBQ I've had in London by miles. Each table has a BBQ grill and if you tell them you've done this before, they'll let you cook the meat yourself - a far more enjoyable experience. Having been a few times I'd recommend the prawn starter, and for the BBQ my favourite cuts are the chill pork (number b4 on the menu I think!) and the tenderloin steak. Try...more
