We were spending a couple days at PSU. We always make a point to look for a Korean restaurant at a new city we visit, so we checked out a few reviews for Kimchi and visited the restaurant. We're so happy that Korean students and...More

Really great selection of dishes. Spice can be adjusted accordingly. Kimchi and other pickles were tasty and varied. Wait staff had her act together. Ginger tea hit the spot.

Had an excellent lunch at Kimchi-teriyaki salmon. My mom had the beef lunch box which was also delicious. The service was excellent! Atmosphere is simple but the food is excellent!

Their Galbi Tang is the best but it costs 16.99 which is pretty pricy. The food other than that is pretty good but also above 14 dollars. Good restaurant for family and friends. The things is that they don't have a table for more than...More

The food is delicious and kind of authentic. I think I have said this already. The problem with this restaurant are the sassy waitresses they hire. Not long ago, the waitress followed to my car to ask me if I liked the service. I said...More

Not my favorite place, as I'm just not a really big fan of Korean food, but this is my daughter's top restaurant. I often get the Woo Tang for lunch or Vegetable Spicy Udong for dinner, and she usually gets the Tofu Gopdol. The food...More

Service is very slow. We had to wait one hour to be served. The restaurant is full of Korean students, about 20-25 years old, definitely not a place for families, very chaotic, not clean. I ordered a teriyaki salmon which was overcooked, but besides that...More
