Opening times: Tuesday 5.30pm – 10pm, Wednesday to Saturday 12pm – 3pm and 5.30pm – 10pm and Sunday 12pm – 3.30pm

Sophie Skyring, reporter, said: “My vote would have to be The Kimchi – you have to pre-order but it’s cooked fresh.

“They specialize in Korean Comfort food and it’s unlike anything else that is available in the city.

“They also stock a good selection of imported drinks that we wouldn’t otherwise have the chance to try, such as a Milkis which is a carbonated yoghurt and milk drink.

“It shouldn’t be knocked until you try it.”

4. H&S BBQ

“It also does huge Jenga brick chips and its lokma desserts are like mini donuts with a range of toppings.”

Opening times: Wednesday to Thursday 4pm – 10pm, Friday to Saturday 12pm – 10pm, Sunday 12pm – 9pm

James Weeds, reporter, said: “I’m no vegan, but these burgers are some of the juiciest, tenderest, tastiest patties I have ever tasted. The combination of flavors works well – no matter what variety you try, although my favorite is by far the Samuel Hell Jackson just for the chipotle coleslaw alone.

“The fries are great, but the sweet potato fries are even better. Especially when sprinkled with cinnamon. It sounds like it shouldn’t work, but it really does.

“Finally, the wings. If it were chicken, I’d say pass. I find them too fiddly and not worth the hassle. But these meat-free bad boys are tasty and easy to eat.”
