Went to the Telok Ayer branch, alighted from Telok Ayer mrt stop on the downtown line, you need to walk about ten minutes, past the temple and a couple of crossings to No. 177 at the corner of the street. Quiet early at 7pm on a Saturday night. Did not order the barbecue as we are mainly vegetarian, went for... More

But during peak period,you expect to wait for half hour.And parking along the road there is quite a problem.There's a big public carpark is about 100m away. Service... More

Tuck at a small lane away from the main road is this Korean family restaurant that serves authentic Korean food. One of my favourite no frills place when my wife and I needed some wholesome kimchi soup. Price is reasonable and the serving generous. Worthwhile going back again and again.

Reservations highly recommended because even on weekday evenings, it can get rather crowded. Just make sure everyone is here before you can get seated esp when its full house. Nearest MRT to alight to get to Kim's will be Beauty World (Take exit B). We were blown away by the amount of side dishes presented to us before our main... More

This place feels like a real korean eatery, with a nice atmosphere, unlike the normal hype in sg where they try to "spruce it up" with loud K-pop music and such. They serve 12x awesome and tasty side dishes which is enough to fill you up before your meal! Only thing is that they keep trying to take the menu... More

The restaurant looked very rustic and homely as could be deduced from the restaurant name. Pricing also looked very reasonable. We tried the tteokbokki which was the best I had in Singapore so far, although the rice cakes could have been cooked longer in the sauce. The pajeon and bulgogi hot plate were good too. Would come back again to... More

Kim's Family Restaurant have been around for the longest time in Bukit Timah and i have visited this restaurant at least once a year whenever i am in Singapore. Needless to say, whatever you look in a Korean meal is available here.

The decor is still the same since our last visit but few things has changed now. The menu is now presented in a more classy new binded book, with glossy nice food pictures. And I believed the prices has increased! We have been here few times last year & now our bill is higher even though we ordered 1 item... More

We had a reservation but the restaurant was full when we came. The place is not very big. We were ushered to another premise about 2-3 shops away on the same stretch. Apparently this was an additional area. We passed by this 'restaurant' earlier & thought it was another restaurant. Decor is more basic here, not as nice as main... More
