Prettiest Restaurant In London? | Mino, Kingston Review
Be lured by the decor, stay for the Japanese/Korean dishes.
If I could move anywhere in London, it would be Kingston (or is it Surrey? *shrugs*). The town has a lot going for it including home to my favourite record shop, Banquet Records and the outrageous Creams Cafe (review). Japanese and Korean restaurant Mino is just another reason why Kingston is awesome.
You can see the pink blossom of the trees from across the street. Just like Ethos (review), my curiosity took hold. I could feel myself staring, floating towards the prettiness. Pretty dangerous as it involves crossing the road. There were notes hanging from them. Wish I had a nosey.
There are lot’s of traditional Japanese and Korean dishes on offer (Mino’s menu) – sushi lover’s might be here for a while…
Reasonably priced, gyoja starters are around £5 while my main of Jap Chae Stir Fried Glass Noodles (sweet potato noodles, take that courgetti!) was £8.70.
You’ll also find everything; katsu, sashimi, fried dishes, bento boxes, donburi and soup dishes.
They also have some mocktails – I had a cal melon mocktail.
Dining at Mino has definitely pushed visiting Japan during blossom season up on my travel bucket list!
