I used to come to Chung Ki Wa for their delicious Soondoobu Chigae and Kimchi Chigae. Unfortunately their service is so bad and they became so stingy with their side dishes that it just isn't worth it anymore. It is a shame because their food is actually quite good.

We are from Los Angeles, which has some of the best Korean food in the world, and were delighted to find this Korean restaurant in Medford. The food is very authentic. We especially enjoyed the seafood bean paste soup and dduck kook (rice cake soup). The ban chan (side dishes) are excellent, especially the delicate kim chee and eggplant. The... More

Easy free parking in... More

I eat lunch and dinner on a weekly basis here. While their sushi is not as good as before since they had to let go their sushimen after the economic downturn, their other hot dishes have held on quite well. Their lunch menus are of decent value with good sized portions.

If you crave korean food, this restaurant is the place to go. Good portion, kids friendly, not crowded and good service when not busy.

After moving to Boston 2 years ago, Chung Ki Wa has become a staple for my boyfriend and I. The sushi is always fresh and delicious and the entrees are always cooked perfectly. One of my favorite dishes is the Squid Special. It's extremely spicy and the squid is never rubbery or overcooked like you usually find in chain restaurants.... More

Fantastic sushi. I can't vouch for the Korean BBQ because I've only had it here, but the sushi is top notch, fresh and perfectly made. Their sushi chef is a true artist.
