Our second time with a small group, one of the noisiest places I can ever remember but that's OK it's fine for family groups and noise is normal to kids. All the dishes are delicious, ask for help when ordering. The staff are OK and not great with English but work at it - the reward is the food. The... More

This is one of the best meals I have ever had. It was so delicious and flavoursome, and the servings were very generous. I couldn't believe how quick the service was, I felt like we ordered and 5 minutes later all the food arrived, which is so great when you take young kids to a restaurant. The whole family loved...

Great and tasty food with reasonable price. Quick service and kid welcome. Only problem that car parking is always full.

I've read some of the negative reviews and not sure if its that bad. I've been to Kimchi Grandma at least 5 times now and have never experienced anything negative. The place is always packed - which is not a bad sign at all. Portion is huge (which I welcome anytime) Me and my husband once spent $35 for a... More

Got in early for dinner, so could get a table easily on a Saturday night. Ordered the bi-bim-bab which was "okay", but a generous portion that was a challenge to finish. The atmosphere was relaxing and the music not too loud. The waiters & waitresses were also polite & professional. The restaurant gradually filled with diners of varying ages with... More

Can't leave this place still hungry. Everything tasted great and there was plenty of it. A broad variety of side dishes was served including a cool kimchi, beansprouts and more in refreshing, spicy and pickled styles. Tea was on the table before we'd seated ourselves. Chardonnay was a bit ordinary but certainly priced accordingly. Will be back, especially since they're... More

Went with a group of Korean Asian friends and the food is not authentic. We had ginseng chicken soup which was literally a chicken in water which was so plain and watery. We had beef ribs which tasted good but super chewy because it wasn't cooked enough. The spicy tofu soup was flavorless and had tiny bits of clam shell... More
