Visited the ARC branch for lunch on Saturday with family. There was only one waitress running around (poor girl is not local). The Korean lady, not sure if she is related to owner but was in costume, parked behind the counter and will only serve some tables near to the counter. Took us a while to... read more

Twice I've been with different people and twice I've left disappointed by both the quality and miserly quantity of food. It tastes like most other Korean restaurants in Singapore and is priced similarly -- they are all over priced, even my Korean friends complain about the prices and the quality. I will never go back again and I would not... More

My family visited the branch at Sembawang Road for dinner. We were all so disappointed by the food especially the deep fried chicken which cost $30 that was so dried and tasteless. Overall rating is very poor for this branch.

Visited Arc outlet for weekday lunch. Ordered Kimchi Stew (kimchi chigoe) and chicken hot plate (dak bulkogi). Food were served within 10mins. Side dishes were served after we received our first main. The stew was delicious. Chicken hot plate contains abit too much chicken skin but it was well marinated. Side dishes serving was a little miserable but I like... More

I went to the newly open outlet at Sembawang with 3 other friends. We ordered Jjajangmyun, Bibimbap, Kimchi Bokumbap and Kimchi Jjigae. Jjajangmyun is noodles in special black soy sauce with minced pork. Bibimbap is a variety of vegetables, choice of chicken/pork/beef and an egg with a small bowl of chilli paste. The way to eat Bibimbap is to add... More

Had a craving for Samgyetang and decided to pop in to have lunch here yesterday. I must say I really enjoyed the food and especially the Kimchi here. The Ginseng Chicken Soup is tasty and size-able. Mum had Doenjang Jiggae (Bean paste soup) which taste equally yummy. I believe they do charge extra if you ask for more free kimchi... More

Relatively authentic korean setting with a number of service staff being Korean. Food is palatable; had the kimchi mandu, black sauce noodle and the cold noodles. Good for families with young kids.

I had dinner at Auntie Kim earlier this year, and thought the food was good although too spicy for Westerners. The recent reviews point to a totally-different experience or a massive deterioration. Any relationship with Ms. Kim Kyong-hui, the Auntie of Outstanding Leader Kim Jong-un, who went missing in North Korea?

Was in the ARC for quick lunch, choices were a lot in Auntie Kim restaurant. The spicy tofu was particular good, the spiciness is just nice and not too hot.

Last Saturday, my wife and I went to Auntie Kim. The choice of food was rather limited. We are not big eaters and we hate to waste food. It was our second visit to the restaurant and we knew how big the food servings would be. So we decided to order a bowl of soup followed by 2 bowls of... More
