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.

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.

Even as a native Korean I was pleasantly surprised at how authentic the food was. I was the only Korean in the restaurant though--I assume because the dishes were overpriced. The food was cooked a bit sweeter to cater to non-Koreans, and the presentation of the food was clean and neatly done. Good job making the food appetizing to non-Koreans while keeping it authentic. I would have given four...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
I've been a lot of times and I like the fact it's different!
I've always ordered from the main menu and it's been great. This time I went with ten people and we had the set menu for ease! What a disappointment it was and very expensive for what we had. The amount of meat would have been lost in martini glass.
Don't order the set menu!
Staff are always friendly and try hard, but are not...more
Good Korean BBQ, nice and friendly staff. They're a BYO (except for beer) and the meat is BBQed at the table, which is entertaining.
If you like Korean food, kimchi and sour cabbage, you should like it. Rather good price too.more
