This intimate restaurant provides late-night diners with a warm and cosy place to enjoy yakiniku – Korean style grilled meat. Small, but perfectly formed, the restaurant can only accommodate a dozen people at any one time and is designed to be an emotional shelter for people in the bustling city. Its distinctive louvred façade is made from brick red clay which signals the colour scheme within.
Inside, warm lighting, including a moon like orb creates an immersive and lively space. Bar style seating is arranged around an open plan food preparation area while a small selection of individual tables line the outside of the room.
