About

Seoul Kitchen is a new, family owned and operated restaurant in Westford that captures exciting and authentic Korean flavors in a modern and welcoming setting. We also feature fresh and creative sushi served alongside craft cocktails. Our dishes can be best described as bold and creative, yet traditional. Come join us for a fun night out with friends at our 25 seat bar and surrounding seating area, or for a nice family dinner in the comfortable dining room.

A Message from the Owners:

My wife Debbie and I opened the doors of Seoul Kitchen to the Westford community in December 2014. We are passionate about Korean food and want to share with the Westford community authentic Korean flavors made from scratch. Our sushi is one of a kind; hand selected fish from the local seaport to make delicious fresh items from the sushi bar. Providing great food with great service and a beautiful ambiance is what we are all about at Seoul Kitchen.

I can't wait to go back to Seoul Kitchen. I had extremely high expectations going in after seeing it featured on Phantom Gourmet a few months prior, and Seoul Kitchen still managed to exceed expectations. The food and cocktails were excellent. Our service was outstanding as well, Chantal was a wonderful waitress. She had our meal paced perfectly and followed up with us throughout our time there.

We started with dumplings, which were delicious, and we also tried the avocado bowl. I have been talking about, and thinking about, that avocado bowl all week and can't wait to get it again. It is an avocado shaped into a ball that is filled with spicy tuna, served on top of tortilla chips that are drizzled with eel sauce and spicy mayo. Absolutely unique and absolutely delicious.

For the entrees we got a delicious Hawaiian maki roll and the Bibim Bap with kimchi and pork. The Bibim Bap is a wonderful dish served in a stone pot that kept the contents hot for the duration of the meal. We typically don't do dessert but we split a fried ice cream which was delicious too.

It will be tough to order something different the next time we come visit, but we are definitely looking forward to coming back soon (and often). I can't recommend this place enough. We drove 30 minutes to get there, and it was well worth the drive.

The food here is very tasty, and everyone agreed that the Korean Barbecue was the best thing we had. The servings are large - appetizers are definitely big enough to share. It was a very warm Saturday night for September and they'd opened up the front - it is cooler in the back when they do this. There was also live music so it was noisy but we could still hear our conversation. The bar had a hard time keeping up and drink orders were delayed more than once, but the service was friendly and helpful. Nothing gluten free on the dessert menu and the few offerings don't seem to be quite right for an asian restaurant - that's the one place where the menu falls short. Still, it is far and away the best Asian food in the Westford/Littleton/Groton area.

Fantastic food. Ambiance was lacking, especially given that the musician who was supposed to start at 7pm hadn't begun to play when we left just before 8. He was all set up but just eating his dinner that whole time... I guess a testament to the good food but we certainly don't go there again for "entertainment"...

We had a wonderful meal at Seoul Kitchen. We had a service dog in training and were treated very well. The food was terrific as were the cocktails. Very reasonably priced for the quality & quantity of food. Can't wait to try MANY more selections from their menu. We will be back!

I want to like this place. It's nicely decorated, it has tasty food, and it's close to home. We've been here twice, and the problem remains the same--poorly trained front of the house staff. We waited a long time to be greeted after we were seated, our drinks took a long time to get to the table, and I had to ask for my second drink three times before it arrived. Another server came by and asked if we had been tended to.
Our server didn't have a bad attitude, but we were neglected all the same. With other Asian restaurants close by, it makes us hesitant to return, despite the good food.

I am so happy Seoul Kitchen is in my hometown. The food is always super fresh and yummy, the service is consistently superb, the bartenders are friendly, the staff knows the menu and can make recommendations (which are always winners!), and they make it easy with Open Table and their online takeout ordering. Some of my favorites are the dumplings, korean tacos, stone pot soy-sesame beef bibim bap, beef bulgogi...

The seafood scallion pancake was amazing. The bibimbop was what you would expect. But, I've had better bibimbop at other Korean restaurants. Also, they only brought four little dishes of vegetables and appetizer dishes for four people. I've been to other Korean restaurants in Westborough, MA which bring a dozen for two people. They play live music which was right next to where we were seated. No music was being played at the time they seated us (6:30pm Friday night) but they solo artist set up shortly thereafter. Way too loud. The place was too noisy between the sports on TVs in the bar. I'd go back again just to get the scallion pancake.

We visit Seoul Kitchen regularly as it's our favorite restaurant. We like the twist on the dishes and the fusion of Korean-Japanese cuisine.
During our last visit we had the pleasure to have Ester as our waitress: she was extremely friendly, attentive and always interacted with every customer with a big smile, never rushing, which helped to make the experience even more enjoyable.

Lively atmosphere; food quality ranged from fair (spicy squid was definitely spicy, but too chewy for me) to very good (I could have made a meal of the appetizer dumplings!). We like to converse when we eat out, and the live music was a bit loud to do that easily. Service was very attentive.

Took my wife here for our 9th Anniversary, reservations for 2 on Saturday night at 7. Food was delicious, ambiance was great! There was some live music playing, it was pretty nice. Our table was very small and our server didn't get our order correct, however the food was so good we decided to keep the fact that we didn't get the correct food to ourselves. Apps were delicious, we had the avocado ball and jalapeño bomb. We asked for a tuna Zuke don but received chiraci which was really good.

Tonight was our first night at Seoul Kitchen. It was amazing!! The outdoor seating area was nice, and I liked how the entire wall was open so that bar felt like it was outside as well. Service was quick and good. Our waiter was very attentive. The food and drinks were amazing as well! The kimchi fried rice is awesome and spicy. We will definitely be going back.

Great spot. Jay always charming and attentive. Good consistent food and service. Made reservation over open table. Was sat by DJ stand and do not realize this was the fri pm norm. So got very noisy suddenly as DJ started his thing. Should have been asked if I wanted to sit so close to music. Not a big issue but would liked to have been asked if ok to sit there or further away. Will be back. Thanks as always
