Yori Reviews: Korean BBQ in London

Yori is a small Korean restaurant line that first opened in London in 2016.

Jin Soon Kim started the restaurant line, hoping to make Korean barbecue international. Over the following six years, Jin Soon Kim opened eight other branches in the UK. Six of which opened in 2021.

An impressive achievement considering the restrictions caused by the pandemic.
