I love Korean food, and it repulsed the rest of my family. Especially Kim Chee. So it's nearby and I'll go every once in a while, especially if I'm getting my oil changed across the street at Jiffy Lube. (Be careful crossing!). A couple of...More

It doesn't get any better or more authentic than Kim Chi House. The food is so tasty and the family grows its own vegetables and herbs right outside the restaurant. The family members are very friendly and welcoming and happy to help with your choices....More
