We found this restaurant online, looking for a nice place for our Saturday evening meal on a mini-break in London. The surroundings were lovely, although the tables were very close and we could hear every word of our neighbouring table's conversation. The staff were absolutely lovely, and we had great service from all that tended to our needs. The menu is a little limited, as one might expect from an independent, but everyone was very happy with what they ordered. A small note might be to be specific on the menu that the burgers were served with fries, as two extra sides that were ordered proved quite filling and prevented us from going for desserts. A strange name, and not so visually appealing from the outside, but absolutely worth a visit and as we usually stay in this area when visiting London. We will definitely return to The Gojk.

Really enjoyed our meal tonight. Food recommendations by staff were spot on. Ordered prawn starter to share and rib eye & burger. Food was delicious and service was great too. Tommy’s margaritas went down a treat! Happy hour great value. Would highly recommend!

Difficult to describe the ambience as for most of the time we were the only 2 diners in the place at 8.30 on a Wednesday evening. Food was average. Nothing outstanding in any way so felt £32 for a burger, chips and a glass of Cote du Rhone to be a bit pricey. However it was a warm evening so it was nice to sit in their courtyard. Service very pleasant but absolutely nothing to tempt me back I'm sorry to say.

Our second visit - and very quiet (although we were early). We enjoyed a glass of Vinho Verde before our starters of Asparagus and Tempura Courgettes - both excellent. Mains of Lemon Sole and Exotic Red Mullet were equally good - with a side of Cassava Fries. A bottle of Ripanco was good value. Service was very friendly and attentive. Recommended.

The food was absolutely delicious.

A very unassuming venue- but everything that we had was fantastic. The scallops and prawns were *Incredible* and the wine list was great!

The service was second to none. Faultless.

Had to come back after our previous dinner at Gojk! My fiancé’s parents were visiting from out of the country, and we knew they would enjoy Gojk’s amazing food and ambiance. The staff absolutely did not disappoint. They were very attentive, kind, and helpful. My fiancé’s father does not walk well, and the Gojk sat us close to the handicap restroom to make things easier for him. The future in-laws truly loved the food,wine, and staff- and are excited to dine at the Gojk again in the future!

Absolutely wonderful place. Quite small inside dining space but well-designed to provide good space between parties. A very inviting and quaint patio area. Food was incredible. Loved everything we had...ribs, scallops, asparagus, chicken. Fabulous service and family-owned. Very personable and involved owners. We will return!

We visit London from Boston every year and usually stay in Earl’s Court. By FAR, Gojk is the best restaurant in the area. Everything from the martini to the salad to the four main courses that I sampled were prepared carefully, expertly and perfectly. I returned with friends and it was the only time I recall where everyone at the table left raving about their meals.

Was in on a Tuesday night using the offer and it was very quiet, but not necessarily a bad thing. It meant we got quite a lot of attention and the service was excellent, attentive without being overbearing. Food/drink was very good, only thing I might say is the deal helps a great deal when considering the value...without it I feel it might've been slightly overpriced. But, I wouldn't hesitate to come back.

Gojk is an outstanding local eatery in Earls Court that really should be a 'destination restaurant'. I have reviewed favourably it before and continue to find it flawless in execution, relaxing and welcoming.

Incomparable service which made us feel so welcome and valued. Food was superb and I loved the wine recommeded with our steaks, but my friend thought it could have been bolder (Boneshaker Shiraz). The Tuesday night special is a no-brainer - just go!

I chose to eat here for new years eve. We were warmly greeted by the waitress and lead downstairs into a lovely cosy dining area. We were offered complimentary champagne as it was NYE!
I seriously recommend the prawns starter, it was so good we ordered more.
I had a lovely duck meal which was presented well by the chef.
Also the mocktails are as good if not better than the cocktails. Steve, that strawberry coconut mocktail was AMAZING!
Great evening and looking forward to the new menu.

I went to the Gojk with 4 other friends (and my 2 year old) for a Christmas dinner and it was an absolutely amazing night. I had the goat cheese starter which I’m still dreaming about now and I stole some of my friends prawns and almost ended up ordering it too! The Cassava Chips are a MUST - they were fried to perfection, the texture, the density, everything about them was just heavenly. For mains I had the clementine Duck - lets just say every thing was an 11 out of 10. For desert was the panacotta dusted with a gold topping which was so good that I asked for an extra portion of topping and the chef also made mini pancakes for my 2 year old (which wasn’t on the menu by the way) which she loved. Also try their cocktails - I can’t remember the name of mine but it has a splash of ginger and warmed me up nicely. I believe they have a new menu so I will DEFINITELY be going back.

Not as good as other visits food was OK service was VERY slow a few items missing off the menu and limited bottles of wine left not explained clearly. Will go back when the menu is updated small menu with limited choice gets dull if you come too often.

Dear guest, we are sad to know you did not have a nice experience with us on your last visit. We are going through a transition with a new head chef and our suppliers, therefore our menu is limited, and the service was not to our usual standard due to us being short-staffed. We are working on a new seasonal menu for next year and we would love your opinion if you decide to visit. Your comments are much appreciated, which will help us improve and grow as a local business. The Gojk Team

We had the pleasure to eat here. This was our second visit to London...THIS restaurant is the best restaurant we have eaten at in all of London. Absolutely delicious. We dined with our two young children and the chef made it a point to make them something special, and yet out of this world delicious (organic, farm fed chicken and veggies), I had the venison pie with truffle mash, and my husband had the venison sirloin...the portions are generous and absolutely amazing! It was not gamey or chewing, it was completely tender. We will return next time we come!
