    Quality and delicious modern korean fusion style food! We had the beef torched tartare, stuffed zucchini flowers, cauliflower with korean curry, grilled octopus and the chicken and they were all super flavoursome and tasty! Service was lovely and we enjoyed our lunch there. Nothing to fault and will definitely return =)

    The food is v flavoursome with layers of flavour and textures which work well, I really enjoyed the octopus and mackerel. The food is on the richer side and sauces were v buttery so prob fattening but well worth it. Definitely a must try!!

    Our first time to Soul and we loved it! Outstanding food and service. We went for lunch and would definitely go back for dinner. Make sure you try the kingfish, dumplings and pork. All amazing!

    I'm generally a bit sceptical about Korean fusion but this was amazingly good. From the rice cake (bread starter) to the kingfish in kimchi water and the chilli rice sticks - everything was amazing! Love the innovation but also the simplicity at the same time. Speedy service and great food - could not ask for more.

    very good atmosphere and dishes, friendly staff, everything left a good impression on us. Maybe a few more wines could be added. The fusion in the dishes is very well achieved

    Front of house was very very friendly. Prawn dumplings were the standout and we also really enjoyed their non alcoholic beverages including the corn husk tea

    Modern, funky and clean decor. Wonderful service who went above and beyond to make the experience more personal- such as giving a little side for our baby. Food was delicious and so well prepared and presented. A really fun take on Korean. Overall an amazing little find. Will be taking more friends and family here!

    I ordered the curly corn on a cob, cauliflower and torched wagyu tartare. All dishes were very flavoursome! The stand out was definitely the corn which was seasoned perfectly. I loved the atmosphere of the place too!

    We really enjoyed our lunch. The food was excellent, environment enjoyable and the value was great. We especially loved the prawn dumplings and the beef, it was also a nice touch to get a candle on the dessert for my husband’s Birthday. We’ll be back!

    Excellent food, good value ‘ loved the tasting menu although the sauces were slightly sweet as I am a diabetic!!! It would be good to get a fork and spoon for a dessert instead of knife and fork as it would be easier to eat,

    We enjoyed the tasting experience, a beautiful balance of flavour, whimsy and style. The cocktails superb, and wine list perfectly manicured. A classy night out all round!

    We had a lovely experience at Soul dining. We ordered 4 dishes. The torched wagyu tartare was wonderfully delicious as it had a smokey flavour from the torching. If the tartare was cut into thicker strips or more cubed, I think that would inprove on it's texture, but overall very nice asian flavours and presentation. The second dish we had was the curly corn on the cob. Only thing I can say about that was that it was highly addictive and we could've had a second helping. Buttery, savoury and with the touch of creme fraiche made it decadent. Beware of getting your fingers dirty, totally worth it though! Third dish was Lee's gnocchi. The beef served with the gnocchi was so tender and soft. The sauce was very similar to a korean dish I had and was very tasty. Final dish was the beef short rib. Very rich and the meat was juicy and tender. The fried potato stack served with it was very crunchy on the outside but warm and soft inside. We should have gotten a salad for the third and fourth dish to balance out the meatiness. If you prefer your cocktails to be fruity, than definitively order some here. Definitely enjoyed the kim-let (sweetam and sour) and the sin-go pear (fruity and rum). Overall a great experience and affordable prices.
