Assa is a Korean cafe with several set meal options at lunchtime offering excellent value. Open in the evening as well, the menu offers stir-fries and hot pots amongst other things.

Overall Not too bad but i would prefer next door Woo Jung or Seoul Bakery.
Main and side dishes are not too bad.

but their rice seems like old and yellowish, too sticky and crush quite easily.

If you big fan of Korean foods, you might recognize their cheap rice quality.

This is a great place - I had lunch here with my Korean friend and we both loved it! The seafood pancake is a must try; and their lunch specials (two side dishes, and a main meal) are only 4.50 until 3pm. The only downside is that you come out smelling like barbeque (due to their open kitchen), but the food was so good we didn't mind at all.

This place is absolutely delicious.
The atmosphere is great, i went there by chance with my boyfriend and ordered one under every catergory. They were all very delicious, if you cant eat spicy things be sure to tell them before. great value for money, definitely a students budget place.

One negative part is the place is really cooked up.. open plan kitchen.
and be sure to be there early, the place is always packed

A friend of mine took me there for dinner during my visit to England. We had kimchi stew with beef, and spicy Udon noodle with seafood. The food there was so delicious that I went to the same place for two more days. Now I'm back in my hometown, but still couldn't forget the food i had. I had to say, ASSA is my favorite restaurant in London.

We went to the Center Point area, the new "Korea Town" to try one of the new restaurants there. ASSA stood out as one that seems more vibrant and that we were on a budget. The menu was comprehenive and the food was pretty good and represented good value. I have eaten Korean before, so I had an idea of what to expect. Ignore the decor and enjoy the food. The service isn't silverspoon, but the staff are friendly. This restaurant is visted by Koreans, so it has got to say something.
