We say…

Near the vibrant West Street and Glossop Road areas in Sheffield is a unique restaurant bringing real Korean food to Yorkshire. Ginseng restaurant is located conveniently in the city centre, so whether you’re heading out after work for a weekday treat or want to chill out and have lunch after a morning of shopping in the city centre, then  head straight here.

Ginseng claims to be the first Korean restaurant in Sheffield, and the owners bring their passion for the cuisine to the forefront of your experience. The stylish black and grey walls are juxtaposed with the enormous tropical fish tanks, giving the space a cool, contemporary air which nods subtly to its exotic roots. The impressive granite tables are central to your experience, as a slab lifts out to expose an imported Korean grill upon which you can grill your own food, adding to the theatrical experience.

The multilingual, knowledgeable staff are always happy to recommend dishes to inexperienced diners, so don’t be afraid to ask if you can’t choose between the many options on the menu. The famous Korean dish bibimbap is especially popular here: a hot stone dish which cooks the rice, meat and egg as you mix it together in the weighty bowl. The presentation of the food is just as important as the taste in Korean culture, so expect to see lots of amazed diners snapping their meals before digging into the food. To start with, why not go for the Kimichi crispy pancake or deep-fried Yasai tempura vegetables. For your main, we love the stir-fried Kimichi with sliced pork belly and vegetables, or opt for the Korean rice cakes with accompanying fish cakes with spring onion and Ginseng’s signature spicy chilli paste.

Authentic Korean food can be hard to come by at times, so be sure to visit this rarity in Sheffield by heading to Ginseng Restaurant soon.
