Been searching for authentic Korean cuisine in excess of 18 years and, Kim's 'nails it' !!! Excellent Ohgingo Bokkum, Bulgogi, kimchi, etc. They feature fresh nigiri, sushi, and exceptional Korean beers ! One note: please be patient....only two waitresses (extremely friendly) that do a great job. Most highly recommended !!!

Service was a bit slow but the 2 waitresses had way too many table to serve. Bulgogi \, Korean baked Mackrel, bibimbob(Spelling?) mandu dumplings were all fresh and tasty. Don't be afraid to ask for more kimchi items when you empty up the small portions in the tiny bowls. Everything we have ordered so far has been worth ordering again.

Our second trip here was terrific. They are so nice. Love the kimchi and the BEST dragon roll. If you want all the side vegetables be sure to order a dinner not a lunch box. Great value. Two of us were stuffed for $30 which included the tip. We plan to be regulars.

It's been a year since my wife and I last ate lunch here. The food is still good, but the waitresses are less than desirable. Maybe because my wife is Korean, but we're not sure. Not a large lunch crowd, but they had some to go orders. Also, I was charged an extra 50 cents in order to get a... More

There is a cluster of Korean restaurants in this part of Fort Walton, but this one stands out due to the consistently flavorful food and fast service. Go after 1 for late lunch, and there will be plenty of seating and quality of the food is still second to none. During peak hours service maybe a bit spotty, but even... More

The service can be better, but the food makes up for it. As we enter the restaurant; the waitress was unhappy to see us. Ordering food can be complicated, because she dislike answering your questions about the menu.

Love the food but the service leaves a lot to be desired. Been in on several occasions and they always seem to be severely short staffed. Don't try going in during your lunch hour unless your lunch hour is actually more than an hour. :(

Another good lunch place- in and out under an hour. Everything I've had here is delicious... the bulgogi, kimchee, sushi, soups, etc... However, service could be better... While efficient, the waitresses are not very friendly. If it were not for that, I would give this place a 4.

Very good quality sushi in Fort Walton. I don't recommend many sushi restaurants and so far this is the only one in FWB. The sushi chef is very polite and capable. The nigiri and roll combination is a good deal. Will be back.
