OXFORD’S first Korean restaurant is opening its doors to the public on Friday.

Owners of The Bamboo, Min Quan from Korea, and his Chinese business partner Tao Tao, said they were looking forward to launching their restaurant in Frideswide Square. The pair bought the former Cafe Coco site from Oxford restaurateur Clinton Pugh in February and have been renovating the eatery since.

Mr Tao, who lives in Kidlington, said: “It will be very good to officially open. It has been hard work getting it ready.

“The restaurant is very different now. It has all Korean furniture and Korean paintings on the walls. It looks perfect.”
