Fresh food, good service

We were surprised at how busy this little restaurant became, but once we tasted the food we could see why. The meal was fresh and tasty, and the portions were quite large. The only downside was their drinks menu - not much to shout about there. I particularly appreciated the honesty of the menu... read more

Unexpected to find a neat restaurant tucked away in a town that serves mostly as a pit stop for weary travellers. Food is fresh and tasty, with big portions. Staff are fantastic and cordial.

Travel weary with more driving yet to go that day, we quickly scanned the restaurant listings in Hope as we were passing through. Japanese quisine sounded more nourishing and different from the typical fastfood fare so far this trip. We took a chance with this unassuming eatery and were we ever rewarded. Graduation pictures and other snaps of children in... More

I've eaten at Kimchi plenty of times. The sushi is fresh, the tempura is crispy, and all the broth soups are delicious. it's not adventurous dining. Hope is a small town after all, but most small towns feature a lot of truck stop dining - ever tried to eat in Clinton - so having this great little place available is... More

We passed through Hope, needed a place for dinner. The name Kimchi was appealing. We were sorry to find only 4 Korean items on the menu, but chose two of them and they were really good! Our favourite was the Korean pancake made with seafood, onions, and rice flour, and the barbecued strips of pork were very good too. Delicious-looking... More

I travel lots due to my job. When I first came through Hope, I went to Kimchi for brunch. Since my friend has told me about the place. Maybe my expectations were too high, but the food seemed very bland. The terriyaki sauce seemed very thick, when I ordered it with my bowl of rice. I felt like they were... More

I always enjoy the food here. I especially love the kamikaze roll. The house salad is very large and delicious. All three of my girls love having lunch here. A really great restaurant.

After spending 3 days in Osoyoos and eating nothing but burger and fries, I was dying for something Asian on our way back home. Came to Hope and settled for the first asian restaurant I saw. And surprisingly, this place isnt bad! The owners are Korean and the food was authentic. I'll definitely recommend it.

I always love eating at Kimchi; Hank has the best restaurant in town, and the awards to prove it! The food is always excellent, and Hank always does those nice little touches such as writing Happy Birthday right on the plate. I always send my friends there.

A lovely overall dining experience. Good food. Menu surprisingly extensive. Service good. Sashimi is very fresh. The locals obviously love it and so did we.
