86-88 Shaftesbury Avenue

Opening Times

Daily: 12pm – 11pm

Set in a deceptively small space on Shaftesbury Avenue, the good food and simple decor makes the joint extremely charming. This is definitely a hidden gem in the heart of the capital.

Created by South Korean Charles Seo, diners can use hot ovens on the tables to cook their own food adding a theatrical element to the experience.

Take your pick from top-quality Japanese and American Wagyu beef, Ibérico pork or seafood, then cook it to your own preference. Traditional authentic Korean dishes, such as stew and dumplings, are also available. As for drinks, try the sweet rice drink or one of the Korean beers on offer.

The man behind the meats is Charles Seo, South-Korean native and founder of Kyoto Soho. With Olle, Seo made his dream of bringing authentic Korean food to London a reality. The smart, two-storey space, boasts teal shades with sleek stoneware counters. You can even hire the lower ground floor for your own private celebration.

The Korean BBQ restaurant Olle is a self-proclaimed discerning carnivore’s utopia.
