Once again Kimchee delivered for a very tasty lunch with friends. Great food for sharing and for keeping your favourite to yourself. Pork Belly & Beef Bulgogi are particularly nice

This is our second visit to this restaurant and it never disappoints. Even though you are sitting in long tables it does not encroach on your privacy. Great food and service.

Visited on a Saturday around 8.30 pm - it was busy but not at full capacity as we (2 people) got seated straight away and could see a few empty tables. Our mains arrived reasonably quickly, piping hot and delicious, unfortunately it all went downhill from there. After finishing our mains, it took more than 20 minutes to get someone... More

Great little spot to get a quick and tasty Korean meal. Service is fast and the meal is good and quite excellent value. I had the spicy beef with rice as a main and a prawn starter. Both were fresh and tasty with some Kimchee on the side and a Korean lager. Was packed and clearly a very popular spot.... More

I attended a birthday celebration dinner at Kimchee in Holborn on a Saturday night, along with around 22 other people. The staff were clearly not equipped to deal with us. Firstly, our party were choosing from the green set menu, which has 2-3 main course and dessert options, along with a variety of starters for table to share. Their first... More
