Kintan Oxford Circus
Dishes at Kintan represent a combination of authentic Japanese cuisine and contemporary take on local ingredients. "
People were very helpful and they made positive atmosphere.
Yummy and full. We'll go back again soon. Thank you!
Best Japanese restaurant i've ever been to. The Wagyu beef is an absolute must!
The portions are very small. We ordered a pitcher of beer and when the glasses arrived but were dirty and lipstick marks on them. My boyfriend had to go to the bar himself and ask for cleaner glasses. When I done the booking I did mention we came to celebrate our anniversary but nothing was done to even make it tiny bit special for us.
The only thing we enjoyed was the service of our waiter david. He was super friendly and was keep apologising for the dirty glasses. He was friendly and actually made the bad experience make a bit better.
I had 3 dish course lunch. Delicious meat, rice was good as well. Very reasonable which made me happier. I definitely comeback again.
I’ve been to Kintan a few times but this was my first visit to the Oxford Circus restaurant. The food was delicious. It’s a great experience to be able to cook your own meal to your liking. My friend had the pork and chilli gyozas which were very good. We got a selection of meats to grill, and smores to end the meal with. I didn’t catch our waitress’ name but she was very attentive and helpful, topping up our water without us asking. I’d highly recommend visiting!
We had a great 8 covers, team lunch. Could hardly move we ate so much! It was really tasty and to cook BBQ style at your own table is awesome.
Booked this place for a birthday meal, went for the All you can eat on a Sunday - Amazing Value, Amazing Service & we left ready to burst! I honestly couldn't have been happier with the place! defo going back regularly!!
The place is nice and the idea of Korean bbq also really good, but the quality of food unfortunately didn’t meet the criteria
Really good experience. I personally recommend Korean BBQ meat.
Really different food experience in the hustle and bustle of Oxford Circus. Amazing meat and lot of fun to bbq your own food.
Unfortunately we had a very bad experience with one of the runner today. While we were waiting for our starter,we saw the guy in charge for our rice bowl LICKING the bowl before delivering it to us. We have notice this behaviour also for other tables. Pouring rice in the bowl and the licking it. OH MY GOD. Especially in this thought times... We have told to our waiter who changed our bowls immediately,but we cannot say the same for the other tables. We have clearly saw what happend. It is disgusting and dangerous. We were shocked that after our complaint nothing changed. Disgusting... Especially in this though times... We always loved kintan but this thing for us is too dangerous and disgusting. Some people should be put far away from hospitality business.
Food is really good and the price is reasonable. Clean and ambiance amazing
Very slow service, the grill is too weak. Most meats were marinated and It was too sweet.
I would not go again.
Lovely restraunt but sitting directly under the air con was not the best touch to our experience. My boyfriend hates eating out but he loves this restaurant.
The person who served us was great( George).
Thanks to him, we had a great time.
The staff couldn't understand English and 3 separate people came to clarify our order and even then it still came out wrong.
All 3 diners loved their food & vowed to return again. The quality & quantity was great. Good value for money. Great food options. I for one will be back.
Great food with friendly staff. Highly recommended, but I'd say stick to the happy hours, as the menu is a bit on the expensive side. If you know your beef, just order those, don't go for the premade sets, as they have a few filler items, such as a salad, hot dogs, etc. The Takoyaki and Gyoza are amazing.
service very bad and one of the guy is very rude..
Great fun and great food and service. Would highly recommend.
Really great for lunch during the week. Very short distance from regent Street and Oxford Street. Good selection and service. Kids really enjoyed it.
Attentive service and good food. Food arrived quickly and of good quality. Amazing dinner!
The service was speedy and very friendly.
Food was incredible, we went when it was between 2-5pm which meant all dishes on the promotional menu were 241. So worth it! Lots of food, really good quality and tasty meat and generous portions.
I’ll definitely come back!
Jolly good value if you get in during Happy Hour. I am a fan of the food / flavours and it is overall a fun experience so that manages to offset the particularly poor service - sadly I've not been impressed on each of the four times I've been here - especially on this occasion. This time, we were at the back of the room so we were basically in no-man's land. Having ordered the Kintan set for 4, all the food gets basically dumped on the table at the same time and then no one bothers to come back and see if we need plates clearing, any more drinks, or even to check things are fine. I had to get up and find staff on three separate occasions to order drinks and a bit more rice and their response made it seem like I was the nuisance. The staff didn't have much of a clue about Japanese Sake either, or what to recommend.
Also, sadly, the ladies facilities were extremely grim, with water everywhere over the sink and paper towels on the floor. I checked the rota that was visible on the back of the door which showed the hourly slots of when it had been last cleaned. Perhaps someone had forgotten to tick the box but nothing had been ticked - so implies hadn't been cleaned - since 2pm and we were there from 6pm-8pm. I ended up asking someone to clean it on my second visit just before we left.
Good value for money especially the all you can eat menu on Sunday. But ventilation is poor in this restaurant. Always end up smelling so smokey and beefy at the end of the night. Definitely not a great spot for dinner before a night out. Service is good.
The rice quality was worse than before, especially steam rice was bad quality.
Very nice, food was good and a great atmosphere
Amazing service, food was wonderful!..... I went there for my birthday and the waiting staff made me feel very special :)
Great deal, great flavoured food. Really good for a gathering with friends and loved ones. The whole experience made it an enjoyable dinner with colleagues - they loved it too!
Hard to find Yakiniku in the UK but this was a great example and definitely go for the premium US meats! Really enjoyed our meal.
Very nice experience to be with the familY or friends, would go back again
Super! Idea divertente. Carne e versure ottimi. Servizio cordiale. Da italiani forse eravamo un po’ sopra i toni, rispetto agli aktri tavoli
Nice vibe. Don’t be put off by the quiet upstairs are - all the action is downstairs. Food was excellent and staff were friendly.
Great meal - good gzoya and nibbles to start and then a barbecue feast that we cooked at the table. Very nice waitress as well.
Kin Tan is the best restaurant ever! Sadly I’leaving London in a couple of days and Kin tan is the place I’ll miss the most! I’ve been there around 20 times and I only know about it for 2 months now!! The ambiance, the food!! The people! Everything!
Thank you Kin tan, I’ll see you soon!
The Korean guy who served us was really accommodating. He explained the menu really well and he was very patient with us while we decide what to order. The food is really nice as well although I don’t really like the spicy pork because it’s too sweet but overall, my experience is really good.
Our server Rai had nice smile, friendly and professional, other staff were great too. Food was amazing as always. We tried Taiyaki for dessert and it was a good choice as well. Will return again soon. Highly recommended!
Really lovely lunch and Happy Hour prices made it even better. Food was all great, staff were efficient, beer was delicious.
We are having Buffet, food quality is very good and tasty. But in term of serving, the serving time is very slow and heating system is not fast as they could. But overall is very ok.
