Kintan Oxford Circus
Deep fried chicken dumpling
From Japan. Served with Wasabi & Soy sauce, salt and pepper
Some of the meals are with not that good quality as before.
First time when there for lunch and had the set lunch which is value for money however soup could have been hotter and the rice wasn't that fresh compared to the usual . But one of our favourite restaurants
We had all you can eat offer at lunch time. it was very good and great value!
I brought my boyfriend to your restaurant and it was his first time eating japanese food.
He struggled with chopsticks LOL but he liked it, we will come back for sure.
Ok, so we had a booking at 7 and were waiting for a table to become available. A group then came in after us with a 6.45 booking and with apologies our table was given to them. We then had to wait longer ( it was about 7 at the time and luckily it wasn’t long but it’s the principle).
After our meal we ordered dessert after which, the woman from front of house came and told us we needed to leave our table in 5 minutes as she needed our it for another booking! But we had just ordered dessert! The situation was fixed with another member of staff apologising, telling us we could take as long as we wanted and we shouldn’t be pressured to leave which was nice but the atmosphere by then was ruined.
The food itself was nice but not amazing as the portion sizes varied and you don’t get a lot for your money.
It was super busy and loud and crowded and the food came a little haphazardly with the drinks just dumped on the table for us to decipher what was what. Which was annoying as we were trying new things we’d never had before.
All in all I don’t regret the experience but would not be going back any time soon.
If you’re planning on going, I wouldn’t say not to, just give Saturday night a miss.
One of my favourite restaurants at the moment. It ticks all the boxes. Tasty, healthy and authentic food which doesn't break the bank. Fun experience and great set up to enjoy Japanese yaki niku. Smooth and efficient service. Keep it up!
Food is good. The service is quite slower than before. Perhaps staff shortage?
It was great overall but our heat cooker was keep turning itself off. As ut happened last time as well, id like them to make sure that they work properly... thanks,
Servers were rude, they tried to charge us double what we eat, the. tried to kick us out for being at the table for an hour and a bit, we left hungry and ended up going to McDonalds
I’ve been yesterday evening to eat in this restaurant in Oxford Circus, as I’ve been before to the Holborn branch. Nothing to say about food as it was as I remembered it - delicious! But the overall experience has been very poor, as nobody informed us that we had one hour and a half to finish our meal and we were rushed three times by the staff to pay our bill, while we were still eating! I mean, it’s already difficult during these times to go out again and pay a fair amount of money to dine out, nowhere was mentioned that we had only that little time to finish our meal and I was really upset that once I had enough money to go out and dine with my friend for once after a long time, I was rushed to leave the table. Very poor behaviour. When asked to the waitress, they said that the manager on duty was rushing them to ask for customers to pay the bill! And there were no people waiting outside! Not a good experience. At all.
Great food and service
Fast and effective service, delicious food and very friendly staff
Had a fantastic experience, our waiter Jacob was amazing and gave delicious recommendations as well as great service . I’m not usually one to leave reviews but the personal touch it added was just lovely especially as it was my birthday. We hope to be back soon!
Had a great experience at Kintan Oxford Circus. Our server, Jacob, was great - very attentive, friendly and patient. The food was fantastic (I especially recommend the skirt steak and the garlic rice). Prices were very reasonable. We will be back for sure.
The bbq meat was too salty and my date wasn't too happy about it.
Nice restaurant, but very displeased with having to send a premium rate text message to confirm my booking.
Lovely food as always but a couple of the waiting staff seemed like they didn’t want to be there.
A bit snappy I’d say
My favorite Japanese BBQ place to go when I'm in need of some good quality meat. Only a small disappointment this time, the grill was not hot enough. It took 20 minutes to grill a thinly sliced steak! It took 20 minutes for the manager to come and fix it! Oh, they do happy hour pricing before 6pm and after 9pm!
We enjoy Kintan very much, we go Atleast once a month. With ordering on the phone, it makes the experience very smooth and quick! A must try experience for all!!
Alice was attentive!!
Thank you for good hospitality!!
The service is quite friendly and the food quality is above average.
Fantastic food, great atmosphere! Had a lovely time and great experience.
The food is amazing, apart from the garlic rice which i remember to be a lot bigger and tastier. The meat is great though. The waiters brought food quickly but just didn't bring some of the things, e.g. they bought one plate and utensil less and we had to ask for extra but it took about 5 minutes to get their attention. In general critisism is it was very hard to get waiters attention and we had to wait ages to get a second water, chopsticks or anything we asked for. The table we got after we said it was for a birthday was one in the very corner where one of the chairs was sandwiched between the wall and the table with just enough space for a very thin person to sit. That being said, the food was very tasty and the positive is definitely more. We would go again.
We were very happy at the Kintan - a jolly family meal after all.
Great restaurant, lovely staff and good fun will definitely be returning
Highly recommended, great service, good value for a group of friends, or individually
Great value and fantastic food. Good location as very close to underground station.
very happy with the meal. service provided by the lady was great and the food was tasty, very nice experience and very good value
Lovely place. Enjoyed the food. Service was a bit hectic. And slightly overpriced.
It was good , service was great! Couldn’t ask for better customer service and experience to be honest!
Overall Kintan is excellent when it comes to their service. I’m just wondering though about the “anniversary” event that I had put in the booking. I think that there’s something that the place should have brought like a cake or something.
We had to constantly ask for someone because service was very slow. We had an appointment somewhere else after lunch but was late as a result because we didn’t expect service at the restaurant to be so slow and inefficient. Value of the food also doesn’t seem to match with the portions provided.
the meat is too salty and seems to be not really fresh
Excellent food and worth the price - definitely recommend
Food and service are generally good, but we didn't like the salbi beef, too chewy. They also ran out of draft beef. :(
Everything is great except that the food is a bit salty, and there are some tiny holes in the booth seats and table.
Kids loved the idea of cooking their own food at the table. Great food and experience, now a firm favourite with the family.
The food was incredible, the staff were very kind. Felt looked after
Great food, superb atmosphere and staff extremely friendly and prompt! All the reasons why this place is one of my favourite spots in London!
Food was good.
Service was appalling especially the waiter of south Asian descent. His service was probably worst I have seen in London, worse than any in China town. We splitters the bill, he overcharged us wrongly and was reluctant to handle it. When he brought out the food, he didn’t bother explain which is which. Me and my friends ordered different set and it was difficult to know which dish belong to which set. We had to ask another gentle for help. When he took away the empty plates, it was messy. Terrible employee.
