One thing we can guarantee about your trip to Oshibi Korean Bistro is that it won’t be boring. The layout of this York restaurant is cool and the decor interesting with lots to look at. On Franklins Yard, close to the city centre, you’ll also find a relaxed atmosphere and a menu made up of plenty of Korean favourites. Bibimbap is a popular rice dish with a curious red chilli sauce, while jigae is stew-style dish that will warm you up and make you smile. Oshibi also offers a stellar drinks list with smoothies, wines, cocktails and some traditional oriental drinks, too.
great food, great atmosphere, fun and friendly. Lots of very good vegetarian options , table top grill and a waitress who sang, what more could you want? Highly recommend
Great food choice and the flavours were amazing, the self grill is brilliant, host was friendly welcoming humorous and absolutely brilliant, Couldn't wish for a better meal in York.
Fantastic atmosphere and even better food, I have personally visited Korea in past and can definitely say this is on par if not even better than the food I ate over there.
Great food and service. We really enjoyed our meal. Wine was very unreasonably priced. There was good banter with service and kitchen staff too. Very friendly!
Hidden down a side street in York, Oshibi has the most fantastic atmosphere. I much prefer their downstairs space as it's usually quieter with there being less tables, but the upstairs space has more of a nice busy restaurant feel to it. The staff are incredibly friendly and are always on hand for more drinks etc. The time for the food to come out was a little slow, but with such a small kitchen and the amount of diners this was to be expected. The food is some of the best you'll find it York. It is all so fresh and well prepared at a reasonable price for the quality you are getting. They are also willing to explain anything you don't understand on the menu (which for me was a decent amount as I am not too familiar with Korean dishes). Overall I highly recommend you give this place a try. It's probably better that you do book in advance - mainly because it's so simple - but they are usually able to accommodate you if you turn up without a booking.
I took my 8 year old to this restaurant and we had the Korean BBQ experience. It was great fun for him (and me) to cook our own food. The owner was fabulous with my sun and was just really lovely despite it being completely full. The food was delicious and I really recommend the interesting ice creams for desert- the yuzu one was my favourite. A good way to judge any any ethnic restaurant is if it has people of that country eating there, and this place had about 50% south east Asian clientele the night we were there. Best to book a table as it was full. Would highly recommend this place for it's authentic cuisine and fab, fast but inhurried service.
Great little restaurant! Went for lunch with a friend and had the bibimbap with salmon and the kim gui to share between us. The bibimbap portions are probably usually enough for one person alone but my friend and I could only just about finish it all because we had had a fairly big breakfast in the morning - huge mistake! The food was delicious and the owners were so lovely and helpful. I can't wait to go back again to try more on the menu!
This is a small, authentic Korean. Don't worry about being in what looks like a living room, the hosts know their stuff, are warm welcoming and will guide even the most novice through the best menu choices for them. For around £12 for a full main course which includes rice & side dishes, it offers excellent value for money too. Highly recommended for those looking for an intimate, authentic Korean meal. Suitable for small groups, individuals and families.
Really interesting food - a Korean barbecue which was very tasty, with nicely marinated beef and good seafood. This was complemented by a bibimbap with teriyaki salmon and some nice Korean beer. There were other things we would have liked to have tried, so we will be back. It is worth noting the "set up" is slightly odd with only seven tables on the top floor of a small office building - so not a fantastic atmosphere but that doesn't really detract from the food. try it.
Delicious food and attentive service. We shared a BBQ set and enjoyed cooking them at the table - the bulgogi beef was especially delicious. The portions are adequate but not as generous as I have had at other Korean BBQ places. The Korean beer was delicious!
