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.

Surprised at the quality and quantity of food. Avocado salad side was a meal in itself.

Food and service was excellent but having harsh supermarket lighting directly above my table was unpleasant and totally unnecessary. I would've had a better experience if softer lighting was in place. Definitely room for improvement!

I loved the food but it was too cramped and noisy for a family outing. Highly do not recommend.

Liked the place, the food was good but the potions were small. I suggest anyone visiting to take time and plan the meal. One drawback was the lack of attention by service team as they seemed to be working under capacity.

Decent but nothing special. A bit steep, vegetarian options not great, but good service overall and tasty food. Reasonable option in the area.

Lovely dinner at Kimchee, mostly because our server was so great, always smiling, helpful with advice of what to order, attentive and kind. The food was also fantastic. Please note, when we asked if our server would get the tip we wanted to leave paid by card (service is not included in the bill), they informed us that they do not get it unless we give it in cash. I'm not sure if they don't get it at all, or it is distributed across all staff, but if you also have a great server, make sure to check before leaving anything. (I understand the importance of those not customer facing getting a cut, but we wanted to make sure our server got the extra we wanted to leave)

I was celebrating my birthday so we - especially the kids - were looking forward to the bbq menu. So I was a little disappointed because of this as this is the second time I have been and the bbq menu was not available. Saying that, the food was still nice as usual. Friendly staff. Good ambience!

This is a place we have been many times and the food is always usually great. The service is usually ok, but not great but this time it was terrible.

We had to catch people on the way past to ask them to take our orders. Everything took ages. The plates were taken away eventually but they never returned with pudding menus. The food was bland this time. Worst of all the ladies toilets were absolutely disgusting. All blocked and soiled. I told staff when I arrived and no one did anything. Only 1 out of 5 I think were working. Filthy bathrooms. Really put me off.

While the food was good as usual, the service was very poor. It took 4 requests to get soy sauce with the dumplings, no water as requested multiple times, and we had to wait 25 minutes for the bill, before we gave up and went to the front to pay. All toilets were out of order and when we mentioned to the front of house that we had been waiting for 25 minutes for the bill, he didn't apologize nor offer any compensation. Overall an unpleasant experience

Food, service and ambiance are really very good.
However Kimchee really must do something to address access to the disabled facilities. Having to be accompanied by a member of staff and use a service lift, is simply not good enough!

I had the vegetarian version of Dolsot Bibimbap (with tofu) and I didn't like the chilli paste so I didn't add it but without any sauce it was really bland. For dessert I had the black sesame panna cotta but it was way too sweet for me (It probably could have done with half of the sugar they had put in it.) I had the korean tea as well, which was nice, however the teapot didn't have a lid and I was worried it would get cold too quickly and initially I was told they didn't have lids, but eventually they brought me a lid for it. The waiters were very polite. Toilets were clean. The tables were too close to each other, it felt like we were sharing a table with people to the left and right of us. I would visit one more time and try a different food from the menu and if I don't like that either, then I wouldn't go back after that. I would really like the restaurant to consider putting more space between the tables though.

I was very excited to visit kimchee but sadly it was a big disappointment. All of the food came at once (yes all four starters and main and salad) and was overwhelming and also made me question how it could have been made in such a short time, clearly pre prepped. We ordered the steak main course and sadly the meat was not good quality, it was dry and overcooked, which was a real disappointment. The rest of the food was nice but nothing that blew me away. I would normally of sent the steak back but decided just to leave it. I am sorry that this is not a great review but i was truly disappointment by my experience and the standard of food that was delivered.
