Excellent food and really nice staff who arranged something off the menu that I particularly wanted from the kitchen.

Burnt vegetable mandu served for starter.
Tea pots arriving with no lid, and lid not arriving after.
Usually one of our favourite places for a date.
Really disappointed this time.

Excellent Korean dishes at a good price in a busy environment. Staff a little disengaged and our booked table wasn't ready when we arrived (on time) - but not a problem.

First visit here and very enjoyable meal. Would’ve given it five stars if everything on the menu had been available but there was quite a bit missing on our visit (including, of course, all the stuff I wanted)

It took 15 minutes for the waitress to ask if I wanted a drink.

When we ordered our food the mains came before the starters were finished. If the staff were more observant they would’ve seen than our starters weren’t done with yet. It ruined my appetite. Which was not helped by the main being burnt. But they did a marvellous G&T.

Mediocre korean food and small portions. The servers sat us near the door which made all the cold air come to our table.

Most of the food was not very tasteful and quite bland, we ordered cheese tteokbokki which seemed like they had omitted every other seasoning apart from gochujang, 2 soft shell crab buns which were mediocre, kimchee fried rice was probably the be dish we had - flavourful and rich- and the fried chicken was probably the only thing I would go back for. One of the best Korean fried chicken I’ve tried in London however the very poor service makes it hard to want to go back. As long as you call the waiters yourself the food doesn’t take long to come - but if you don’t call the waiter you’ll be waiting to be served for a very long time.

Poor service; we were seated in an area that had no waiting staff assigned. When we finally ordered, our food hadn't arrived after 30 minutes, out drinks never arrived. After another slow response from a waiter we were told there was a problem with some equipment in the kitchen. This didn't seem to slow down the delivery of anyone else's food. We left after 40 minutes.

Really enjoyed our meal.
The only thing we thought could be improved is to let customers know that starters are delivered at the same time as mains.

The food at Kimchee was really good, however the portion size is a bit on the small side and they don't provide a variety of side dishes that one expects with a Korean meal.. not even Kimchee! The meals did come with a pickled radish side dish that was fantastic... this from a person that normally doesn't like radishes.

The service leaves much to be desired. We were sat at table and ignored for 15 minutes until I finally called a waiter to place our drink order. During our meal we were ignored again, nobody came by to check if everything was OK. At the end of the meal, the hostess agreed to bring our bill and then proceeded to completely ignore us again. Overall the service was a complete let down. The food was great though, so I would probably give Kimchee another try.

Service was extremely poor, others who arrived after us were served before us. The restaurant was extremely hot.
We ordered our drinks before placing our food order, however our drinks only arrived after having prompted the waitress.
We came here for a birthday celebration, but felt the service really let us down.

I found this place while browsing, totally random, and became intrigued instantly.
The food was amazing, service was top professional, and the food had a reasonable price for the amazing quality.
I’m 100% sure I’ll use this venue for my next team building event at the company!

The food was excellent, but went with friends and could hardly hear one another due to noise level. Bailed after main course to find a quiet wine bar to catch up!

Really needs a new front door, the whole restaurant gets cold whenever a customer comes in. However food is excellent (even for vegetarians) and the look and feel of the place is totally immersive.

Food okay ... the raw beef bowl was so so... not huge amounts of flavour and very stodgy... starter of dumplings was amazing... also the veggie accompaniments were great... went mainly for the Asian version of steak tartare which they didn’t have that day 😰
