Our family have BBQ lunch, great food and appetizer dishes that made the table looks smaller. We have great time on trying all dishes which my sons never ate before. Will recommend to friend. The only complain is restaurant use plastic cup fill hot tea, it is NOT what a high end restaurant will do. The another bad effect is... More

Here is where it all began for me in the late 1980s, when I discovered Korean cuisine. As I learned more and more, and tried more dishes, I knew that this was a cuisine I couldn't live without. From their premium sushi bar (expensive but SO worth it), to the barbecue tables with hot coals, to the soups and stews... More

I have been to this place many times. Their BBQ Short Rib dish (dinner) is the best. The weekday sushi lunch is great, too. The small appetizer dishes that come with your entre order are beautiful and delicious. The place is not grand but their food is the best (better than many other Korean restaurants in the area). If you... More

My wife's friend from work had visited this restaurant and thought it would be a wonderful idea for us to join them. We didn't need any reservations even on a Friday night. The restaurant is located near the far end of a strip mall and many of the stores are vacant. Although it is located in busy area, it is... More

Ate here for my birthday last night with my family of 5 adults. They seated us practically in the front door and boy was it cold. I ate with my coat on. We ordered lots of the higher-end barbeque dishes including bulgogi, marinated pork spare rib and shrimp. We ordered sushi apps and 2 seafood pancakes in which no seafood... More

Located in the corner of a run down strip mall but don't let that stop you from trying this Korean gem. I've eaten a lot of Korean food all over the country and this is one of the most authentic. Be forewarned that it can be VERY spicy. Service is brusque but the food makes up for all other shortcomings.

Tucked in the corner of a large shopping mall and needing a bit of refurbishment, Kimcijhana is a very good restaurant, with attentive service, generous banchan (such as an especially nice version--with a marvelously complicated set of flavors--of a summer kimchi of tiny bok choi, sampled on our most recent visit) , and lots of dishes that are richly flavored...

But it is nice inside, even if it is a bit on the small side. We ordered a variety of sushi, rolls and sashimi. Everything was fresh although the service seemed slow. Prices were in line with other sushi restaurants we've been to in the area. The Korean food smelled really good and we will try it next time.
