About Hamgipak - Parsons Green
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, polite and helpful staff. Top tip - this is a very popular place, so book in advance. We saw a good few walk-ins get turned away because they were booked up. And no wonder why... We had dumplings and mixed kimchi to start, then bulgogi for the main. Fantastic! The Korean beer is a great accompaniment. We will be back soon!
Great Korean food. Love the chicken wings🤗 friendly staff awesome
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.
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!
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.
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.
