At Kimchi Korean Restaurant, we serve authentic Korean cuisine, prepared by 100% Korean Chefs in exquisite style amidst comfortable settings at very affordable prices. Besides serving the healthy, ‘everyday’ Korean fare, you can also indulge in the freshest BBQ meat items and our special homemade sauces.
I visited Suntec City recently and came across this new Korean restaurant. They are located near Din Tai Fung Restaurant. I ordered my usual dishes to gauge their food quality. Here's my verdict: - Kimchi Soup: This was my favorite dish. Unlike watery ones you find at most restaurants, the soup was 'thick' and chockful of kimchi, straw mushrooms. Delicious! - Wagyu Beef Short Rib: beef was well marinated and served on a hot plate. Good! - Seafood Pancake: instead of the huge portions that you are usually served, it was cut into nice bite sized pieces and nicely presented on a long plate with fresh salad vegetables. - Seafood rice in claypot: This was a unique dish that you don't get anywhere else. Oysters, prawns and other seafood places atop rice in a Claypot bowl, you can stir in soya sauce and enjoy, much like 'bibibamp' without the Korean sauce. Not heavy and refreshing. Nice. I will be back again when I need to get my fix for Korean food!
I came to try because of the good reviews, but it fell way below my expectations
1. The side dishes weren't nice, and the variety was so limited given the price. only salad vege, kimchi cabbage, bean spouts, and some vinegar white carrot.
2. Service was bad. Had to take my own side dishes, and order my own food. Basically, the waitress just gave the iPad and told me to order myself.
3. Given the limited variety of side dishes, it was expensive. Towels charged at a hefty 50 cents ++ and no free serviettes provided. I had no choice but to use it as I didn't have tissues.
4. Cost was rounded up. Mine was $xx.x3, and they rounded up to 5 cents. I paid cash. Most places just round down because I've saved their atm and credit card charges. If it's round up, i think it's better to pay by credit. Then I save my 2 cents, get credit card points, and let them pay the extra charges.
As it was my birthday celebration I could choose where I wanted to go and I had a craving for korean food and that is how we ended up there. I think that the pancakes were done quite well and the ginseng chicken was quite authentic. You could also get a cup which allows you to choose from a selection of 4 juices that is free flow and kimchi is free flow too. We also ordered another lemon soju and a hotpot
Had dinner here w my family for NYE. Service was exceptionally good w their waiters attentively serving us. We ordered:
Wagyu Beef Short Rib
Their Wagyu Beef Short Rib is a MUST ORDER!!! Cook the beef until it's almost well done, then you'd get the full flavour and tenderness of the beef.
For dessert we had their Busan Hodduk! And that was amazingly delicious. A definite gem.
Definitely returning to Kimchi Korean Restaurant :)
