The word 'naru' in Korean translates as a river or bay where passengers and goods are transported; a meeting place where people can relax and eat. And Naru in Shaftesbury Avenue is exactly that, a relaxing, atmospheric restaurant for some of the best known Korean food around. Decorated traditionally with paper lanterns and calligraphy adorning the walls, you'll feel like you're dining in the cultural backstreets of Seoul, a far cry from the hustle and bustle of London's theatreland.
The emphasis at Naru is on simplicity, serving well presented contemporary Korean cuisine with a western touch. Aiming to make Korean dining a globally popular choice, dishes are infused with tasty and healthy flavours. And, if you're new to Korean dining, the staff are always happy to advise you on the best choices. Top eats include the kimichi stew with dumplings and steamed rice or the yuk gye jang, a spicy soup with shredded beef.
Due to its great value for money, Naru is particularly popular during lunchtime and with its central location, it is the perfect spot for pre and post theatre bites.
