This place is very busy and that's because the food is excellent! I had a beef kalbi that was great and came with plenty of delicious side dishes! Highly recommended.

This place is charming, and intimate. It does not look like much from the outside, but OH MY the food is good! The Kimchi is just perfectly prepared, and is spicy, but with a great flavor. The servers bring out samples of various dishes, and each dish has it's own flavor . If you like Korean food, and if you... More

Let's face it, the Southwest doesn't scream Korean. But Kimchi time is surprisingly good, and the staff attentive.

Kimchi Time is an unpretentious, straight forward, 49 seat restaurant located in a strip mall, serving popular Korean fare. The dishes are served in a timely manner, piping hot, with the service brisk, but friendly. Check it out!

Drove from Northwest Tucson to eat here a second time. I had eaten here early this year but needed to find time and the company to drive over to eat here. Finally- got to eat my new fav bibimbap which comes on a hot earthen pot - meat veggies on rice with a side of refillable different pickled vegetables- Korean... More

Kimchi Time is the best Korean restaurant in Tucson and one of the very best restaurants in Tucson. I have eaten at Kimchi time about 8 times in the last two months. The food is addictive. My favorite is the spicy pork bulgogi. The restaurant itself is a "whole in the wall" in appearance. The parking lot has huge pot... More

This is hands down, the best Korean meal I've had in my life, actually the best oriental period. The taste can be described as genuinely homemade with a unique twist. Both the chicken and beef bulgogis were exquisite and the Kimchi fried rice was the best I've ever had. We found this little spot by accident since we just wanted... More

Every time we visit our daughter at UA, we try to stop by. The ambiance is typical for a small ethnic restaurant. Service is good but be prepared to know what to order. If you are new to Korean cuisine, rest assured that it is authentic. Food here is excellent and naturally spicy. They have a decent sake and Korean/Japanese... More

We like Korean food and looked forward to our visit. Alas, we thought the food was only average. My hot stone pot bibim bot was very dry and mostly rice with a few small pieces of beef and veggies - not at all what I have received at other Korean restaurants.

Stumbled onto this place by accident. Was visiting Tucson and wanted Vietnamese but came upon this place instead. Good choice. Place was pretty empty when we arrived but within the hour was packed, with customers waiting to be seated. The food took a while to come out but once it did, it was delicious. My husband order bibimbap in a... More
