I have been to Kimchi with friends the last month and I loved it. Korean dishes were perfect, tasty and with tender meat. I would have given 5 stars but the sushi wasn't, sadly, so great. We decided to try it just for curiosity but...More

The restaurant has a great bustling atmosphere, with the restaurant and the pub which is attached from next door! The food is delicious and Korean authentic (as far as know). We had a drink with the meal, it was a great place to start what...More

Loved it. Bustling little place on St Valentine's Day. The beef bulgogi and dak galbi were just like I remember from living in South Korea. Soju cocktails were yummy! I'd definitely go back for more! Great atmosphere.
