The Covid situation is really hurting a lot of small businesses, we came here at 6:30pm and throughout the whole meal we were the only table! Food was decent but it lacks the wow factor, the Spicy Tofu Soup lacks “depth” and was not spicy...at all, for the Beef Rib soup it was a bit richer and the meat was substantial and tender. Hope things will get better soon for all these independent businesses to survive!!More

Excellent Feast for two tonight, kimchi very fresh tasting, seaweed, soft tofu and seafood with good flavour and spice, marinated short rib, and a tasty pork noodle dish; with the clear noodles. The place is very tidy with sanitizer and good spacing. This is really...good food in nice neighbourhiod location.More

Nice comforting Korean Restaurant where there is something for everyone! Our party of four (4) had a little difficulty trying to make-up our minds with such assortment items on the menu. There is a good selection of choices! Our little group totally enjoyed our late...afternoon meal The exterior and interior décor is quite appealing and tasteful! Upon entering the premises, it appeared to be relatively new or recently renovated. I had a sense that this restaurant maybe family owned! Since we were all from out-of-town; we are looking forward to returning to the Sumi Korean Restaurant the next tome that we return to Vancouver!More

Recently, I noticed a relatively new Korean restaurant open up on Victoria Drive called Sumi Korean Restaurant. The interior is a bit confusing because they appear to have two sides to the restaurant separated by a wall (assuming they took over an adjoining unit but...never bothered to fully take down the wall). The first thing that I noticed here was when they handed us the menus… these menus are uncomfortably heavy. I know it really doesn’t affect the enjoyment of dining here… just making an observation. We decided to order the Combo A ($52) as it came with an assortment of dishes: House Salad, Goonmandu, Haemul Pajeon, Soontofudubu, Spicy Daeji Bulgogi, and the regular assortment of banchan. First up was the house salad which was topped with some crispy sticks. The goonmandu, or fried golden dumplings, were nice and crispy on the exterior but with a moist filling. The haemul pajeon, or seafood pancake, needed a bit more crispness to the middle as I found it to be a bit soggy. However, it did have a nice amount of shrimp and octopus and we were able to crisp up the leftovers that we brought home. We picked the spicy tofu soup as our soup option and this had a nice amount of tender tofu in a medium-spiced broth. When I say “medium-spiced” I mean “medium” for Korean standards as this was fairly spicy. The banchan included seaweed, sprouts, pickled radish, kimchi and stewed potato chunks. Last up was the daeji bulgogi which is made up of thinly sliced pork bulgogi. I found the pork wasn’t as tender as the chicken version that we normally order. I’ll have to remember to stick with chicken next time. Overall, the food is pretty good. As expected with a Korean restaurant, the prices tend to be a bit high as the dishes are meant to be shared family-style.More
