Auntie Kim's Korean Restaurant (Upper Thomson)

AsianKorean

This neighbourhood restaurant has gone the whole hog with Korean music and waitresses wearing traditional Korean garb. Try the chicken ginseng soup.

Most authentic Korean cuisine

Most authentic Korean cuisine I have had. Brought my ex-classmates and colleagues on separate occassions, they all enjoyed it and wish to bring their friends here. My colleagues were impressed with the authentic Korean condiments (unlike those cheapo conditments in other places). Favourites would be the pancake and jap chae, i recall their facial expressions when they ate those, they went 'WAH this one also very gd!' Unexpectedly surprised. Worth a visit for authentic Korean meals!

Yummy!!!

I went there with my friends dinner recently. I greatly recommend samgyea-tang(ginseng chicken), Kimchi stew, Godungeo gui(grilled makerel), pancake and Yangnyum Kalbi(Trad. Beef short ribs marinated in special sauce). My friends and I would definitely bring our families there to eat.

Beat the crowd, beat the heat

I ate at Auntie Kim's with my friend on a Tuesday late-lunch hour and had a comfortable meal, despite how she kept pointing out to me that it was much rowdier on weekends, and that we were better off dining at these odd hours so the staff could attend to us more caringly. It was nice dining there.

The food was good and the general ambience quite pleasant. We ordered the Godengo Gui(grilled mackerel), Haemooljeon(korean pancake) and Kimchi soup between us. At first we thought the condiment portion were a little stingy(I loved their Kimchi, and was not refused several top-ups of it), but the generous serving for the mains made up for it,
Their mackerel is a hit- crispy skin, succulent flesh, and the wasabi soy sauce(?) with it gives a tangy fresh sensation. The pancake had a similar crunchy-out-chewy-in texture but the taste is different and also rather wholesome. The kimchi soup was hearty and thick, I think my favourite dish then.

Yumyum. Will brave it on weekends for the kimchi.

Awesome Korean Cuisine

Absolutely authentic korean cuisine with affordable price. Their Seafood pancake, ginseng soup and marinated beef are a "Must-try". I've been to many Korean restaurant but none has tasted so good. Nice ambience with friendly service staff. Definitely will return again with my family, friends as well as business associate. Btw, the kimchi is surprisingly out of this world.

Really no go

DONT EVER STEP INSIDE! We were there for the very first time. Nice ambience and tea to start with. But quality of food and price of it fell short. Staff were also eerie as they kept glancing towards our table because there werent other customers. Stingy portions of side dishes were provided, with add-ons at an additional price. Overall, if you were there just for tea i give it a full
