Auntie Kim's was our family favorite when we left Singapore a few years ago. We revisited this restaurant and was very disappointed. Tabletop BBQ , a highlight for this cozy restaurant, has been discontinued. The quiet family ambience has given way to a very crowded, noisy atmosphere. As for the food, the beef bulgogi was nowhere close to what it... More

Went to the branch at ARC recently, and was disappointed with the food. Ordered the ginseng porridge but couldn't taste any ginseng in the porridge. We had to ask the waitress to bring the porridge back to the kitchen to recook it. The pancake that we ordered was not up to our standard too. We will avoid going back to... More

We eat at Auntie Kim's quite regularly but recently the service has been bad. Our usual order is the kalbi that's cooked at the table, but instead of cooking onsite, the waitress simply put the meat on the hotplate and left it there without a word. We ended up cooking it ourselves. Also, they have started charging for refills of... More

The food here is good and quite authentic. For lunch, it is better to order the standard items else you might have to wait for a long time. Price is reasonable.

This little restaurant in Upper Thomson offers better value compared to other Korean restaurants in town and Tanjong Pagar. What I like about this place is the array of half dozen appetizers offered per table. Overall, the food was good but there wasn't anything that memorable. The next time, we will try the real deal - which is the bbq... More

To cut a long story short.... the food was below average, and the service extremely poor. Not worth the money spent. Korean food on average is unnecessarily expensive in Singapore, and this restaurant definitely does not provide value for money.

I'm a foodie in Singapore and I go around the country hunting for nice food. When it comes to Korean food I haven't really find something at par with all the other great foods that I've tasted in the country until my wife brought me to Auntie Kim's! This place is a must try! The Kim Chi Soup is to... More

Auntie Kim's Restaurant is an olfactory adventure even for a gastronme. WorthY Try-outs: * Soondu buchigae(a hearty & healthy tofu- stew- mix of your choice - I like mine with clams, shrimps, pork enoki & egg added at the last min. ); * Savory Scallion Pancakes dipped in a perfect blend of chopped red chili, sesame, scallion soy sauce with...
