Went there last night with my family because this was the closest Korean BBQ restaurant near Brooklyn. Wasn't expecting the best food and experience because of some reviews I read elsewhere. Read one review about the plastic cups smelling like washing detergent and I thought they probably had bad luck on that day. After we started eating, the meats did not taste nearly as good as the ones I had in midtown Manhattan. Then my sisters ordered soda for the kids and after my niece has been drinking hers for awhile, my sister decided to take a sip of her soda and noticed that it smelled like detergent. I took a sniff into the cup and it had a really strong detergent smell. Never coming back to this place again...

must go!!

Now this place is one of the best spots for me and my family. It all started one late spring early summer evening. The wife and I decided to give this place a try. We walk in and we sat down we ordered a pitcher of HITE and then they start bringing out little dishes of KimChee,some other veggies,just really nice stuff. We ordered a few selections of meat to be cooked on the table grill the end result was amazing. So next time we brought the whole family and they became addicted, they turned their friends on to KimChee and people we knew started asking if we had been to KimChee? The owner is great and his parents I believe are just as inviting. The weekends can be a bit of a madhouse though so we try to go before the rush. I dont care if people say the food is not authentic or not up to their standard. Thank GOD!!!!

Recommended Korean restaurant

This place is not nearly as crowded as the restaurants you'll find in Koreatown on any given evening! So that's one plus already. That means no waiting in line, just no waiting period! The food's good, and the prices are average. Service is good too. I've been here around two or three times. One time they actually gave us a complimentary tofu stew.

Excellent Korean, top quality

If you live in Bay Ridge or not too far away, you must go eat here. Not worth the trip from the city only because there are great places there that are easier to get to. Very nicely run place, friendly. The food is great, one of the best places on 3rd Ave. If you haven't had Korean before, this is a good place to try it out. If you do like Korean, this will make you happy. Enjoy!

good pricing, good people

The staff were extremely helpful and accommodating. I couldn't believe how good the prices were. The ""Pa-Jun"" (Scallion/Seafood Pancake) was the best one I've had period. Not too many onions, just the right texture and fluffiness of the pancake. I asked if their ""Yook Gae Jang"" (Spicy Beef & Vegetable Soup) was good. She answered, ""It's your first time here, huh?"" haha. so cute!

I honestly loved the Kal-Bee (BBQ Short Ribs). Not too salty or garlic-y- the beef was tender, and oh-so yummy to wrap up in lettuce. Then you stuff it all in your mouth. The space could be a little bigger, but it's still a great place to go w/ a date or a few buddies. LOVE the location. we need more Korean places in Bay Ridge. sheesh. Try the Mochi for dessert.

A really great place to eat

A little while ago, I saw the rating for this place was around 7.1 and I was shocked. I have been eating at this place for about a year now, and I can't say enough about it. The food is absolutely excellent, and the service is outstanding! It is a family-run business, and the previous reviewer was correct in saying that they treat you like family, even when you are not Korean. The fact that you will see other Koreans eating there is a good enough indication that it is a good Korean restaurant. I recommend the bulgogi, and the stone pot bibimbap (the food stays hot throughout the entire meal). If you have a chance, you should definitely try this place- it is a refreshing break from the mediocre food and service you get from the other restaurants nearby.

perhaps the only thing better than the food is the service. the manager and staff treat you like family and on two occassions the chef came out to chat. unlike flushing you are not penalized for not being korean. a bit cramped for big parties but otherwise cozy and comfortable. highly recommend the stone pot bibimbap (which stayed hot till the very last bite) and the tofu stew. a bit tricky to find parking but patience with the meter spots pays off. a god send to brooklynites who cannot live without korean food.
