The ongoing vogue for Korean food is not something that seems to be going anywhere, and at Hamgipak on Fulham Road in, well, Fulham, they are certainly in it for the long haul. They dole out steaming bowls of stew, filled with Korean favourites like kimchi, tofu, spicy beef and fresh vegetables. Head to west London – take the District line to Parsons Green – for a serving of South Korean specialities.

For many years, South Korean food was among the most maligned of Asian cuisines, languishing between the sushi and sashimi specialities of Japan and the dim sum delicacies of China. Of late though, the cuisine of the Korean Peninsula has become one of the most sought after around, and at Hamgipak on Fulham Road, you can taste some of the best of it in London. Find your way to Fulham for a feed and you won’t be disappointed.
The draw, of course, is the menu, and on this stretch of Fulham Road, they have offerings for all comers at all times. Our lunchtime recommendation would be the bibimbab – veggies with egg and, to your liking, beef – and later visitors can enjoy a range of fried favourites, Korean BBQ or one of their stews, which are packed with spice. West London is a great place to eat out, Fulham is one of the main dining areas, and Hamgipak is one of the best restaurant in that area: so book a table now.
Great food and nice people! I love the kimchi set and the BBQ pork and beef.. I'll probably go back there more often! So great!
Friendly, attentive service and great food in a clean smart setting. The barbecue is always a great interactive experience but the star of the show has to be the best chicken wings on planet earth that keep us coming back again and again.
As always, it was excellent - food, service and everything! Loving this place. We are coming back again and again - crossing half of London - just to be there!
Love this place! Welcoming and great services, and good quality beef that just melts in your mouth. Would definitely recommend to everyone who wants to experience authentic Korean food.
We had a great dinner recently. We're from SF Bay Area. We had BBQ rib eye steak which comes unmarinated. You dip in in special sauce and eat it in a salad wrap. The meat quality was great. We also had the BBQ spicy 3-layer pork which was also very good. The cook trims most of the fat off also. Get the lettuce wrap and the salad combo to go with your BBQ. We orders the kimchi selection. Most were good but the radish kimchee was mushy, too ripe. The pajeon was ok and had some squid in it. We could have skipped it. Overall, a good experience for our last dinner in London. I think this is one of the better Korean restaurants in this area.
The restaurant is nice. It only has a few tables and on the night we went there were only 2 waitresses. Service was super slow. We waited for a while before the waitress finally took our order. Which normally wouldn't be a problem because all the Korean restsurants that we've been to will lay out a ton of Banh Chan (small bowls of pickled vegetables and side dishes) that we can pick at. That was not the case. If you wanted that, you would have to pay extra for it. Not what we were expecting. The food was good, small portions. Also, they didn't come with rice. We had to order that separately. We ended up ordering an extra dish because we were still hungry. If you want an authentic Korean experience try another where you don't have to order everything separately.
I love it here. The staff are so friendly and helpful and the food is delicious. There is nothing on the menu that I wouldn't eat again in a heartbeat. I don't normally like chicken wings but theirs are so good, crisp and sweet that I ate six. Decor is modern and stylish and though I wouldn't usually comment on facilities I am moved to say that they are the best I have seen for a restaurant of this size.
Our many experiences at Hamgipak have all been amazing. The food is absolutely wonderful and the staff are really friendly and welcoming. Always love coming here for an amazing meal!
We booked a late reservation for lunch. They were actually packing up but still acknowledged the reservation and made our food very quickly. The service was charming. This is only the second time we have had authentic Korean food but it was good if a little same-y after a while but that could be our novice ordering.
Absolutely great food. The staff were amazing, very attentive. My wife is a huge fan of South Korean food and she thoroughly enjoyed the experience. They even packed some left overs for her to finish off at home. Will definitely come again.
Loved dining at Hamgipak, fresh Korean food at its best! Very clean with impeccable service. The seafood pancake, and soft tofu stew is a must.
It was absolutely amazing ! The staff were so nice and they showed us everything and their recommendations were great ! They were so helpful and the price was perfect for the quality of food you received ! Highly recommend !!!
Had a great meal. However, the seafood pancake was a bit too tick and there was only one small piece of squid in it. The taste of flour was too evident. The rest of the dishes were very very good. Will come back...but avoid the pancake :)
Delicious food - we had the squid pancake, the stir fried squid in spicy sauce and the bibim bap with mince. The last was particularly tasty. Restaurant wasn't packed but the service was quite slow. Staff v helpful but difficult to get their attention.
Lovely restaurant with very helpful staff. the food is authentic and delicious (I've lived in Korea before). The BBQ meat is great, ask for it to be cooked at the table for a more authentic experience.
Great food!!! We have not even left the restaurant yet, and my son (9years old) is already saying that he wants to come back! Bulgogi is to die for! Sirloin steak is very tender- melts in the mouth! Customer service is superb! KAMSAHAMNIDA!
Great food, nice modern venue and friendly staff. Would definitely like to come back here. We went on a Saturday evening and were lucky to get a table for two people. Would recommend that you reserve a table beforehand.
It was nice and authentic. Food was slightly more expensive than other restaurants. Only issue was that food took ages to come out. Some of the BBQ meat had a lot of water coming out when put on grill so we suspect its from frozen. Still tasted okay!
Friendly service, good "homestyle" Korean food. Very clean modern setting. A little noisy at times but not enough to disturb. Look forward to returning and trying more items from the extensive menu.
We have been to this local restaurant a number of times and the food is always superb and service very attentive. The restaurant is not large so always feels intimate and friendly.
Delicious food & Good service. The interior is modern and very clean. The food was authentic Korean food. The waitresses were friendly and very kind. I strongly recommend this restaurant.
Can't fault it. Friendly and efficient service, very delicious food and drink. Place was spotless and decor modern. Waitress very happy to chat with us about the food and recipes.
Excellent very nice, fresh good service good value, taking my daughter there, everyone loves it. Fresh meat barbequed in front of you, the best in the west my g bravo
Food and service was excellent. Great meal I would recommend everyone to visit and sample the incredible food. I really hope this restaurant flourishes as the people are so nice.
This was our first experience of Korean food and it definitely exceeded our expectations. We will definitely go back there when in the area again and would thoroughly recommend it.
Service was excellent, BBQ was very nice. Staff was happy to explain the method of eating and also recommending food. My only bugbear was that I would have preferred proper napkins instead of paper ones.
Clean well presented restaurant with lovely traditional Korean cooking. The staff is friendly, however if the restaurant is full the seem a bit overwhelmed which means a slower service.
Great service, great food. Have been going there regularly and never left disappointed. The sea food pancake in particular is to die for, so is the beef soup!
Excellent food, good service. Enjoyed it immensely. Will be back soon. Decor is very basic. Great local restaurant with high quality food. Need to keep the front door closed when it is cold.
Excellent food, taste is very authentic. Dishes are served very fast and one can enjoy a Korean BBQ, with the meat being cooked the table. Definitely recommended!
The food was good. The atmosphere was amazing. The wait staff were polite and helpful. It was a good night as a result. Definitely worth a visit.
Excellent service, great food! Thank you for lovely dinner! We had 70 years old lady who never tried Korean food before but we are all enjoyed!!!
Excellent Korean food in Fulham, would recommend in a heartbeat and will definitely be back in the future. Good to know they're on Deliveroo as well
Fresh, tasty and well presented colourful dishes served in a very clean and well maintained restaurant! A great eating experience - we'll be back for more!
Lovely restaurant, with very kind and helpful staff. The food was delicious! Definitely get a BBQ dish if visiting! Am looking forward to my next visit!
Great friendly service and delicious food. The chicken wings are amazing 😉 Also love the assorted Kimchi Can get quite busy at weekends so worth booking.
Very nice restaurant, excellent food and lovely environment. I have been there twice and tried different dishes and loved everything I tried. I highly recommend it!

I highly recommend this restaurant: the food was excellent, the service was very good too and prices are correct. I will definitely come back there.
Restaurant brand new, minimal style. Staff availlable and friendly. Dishes very tasty and well presented. Hope in future to find more vegetarian options. Love it
such a great experience; polite helpful staff who do not try to rush you out when your meal has ended - would recommend to anyone
I cannot rate this restaurant highly enough. The food was amazing and delicious, the staff were friendly and extremely helpful. I will be visiting regularly.

Great home style Korean food in west London. Good service and well priced. It is well located and very clean and comfortable. The bbq tables are grwat
