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 place our order. The...

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

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

Nice authentic Korean food...a must try is the fried tang hoon, Beef slices wrapped in vegetable...however, the service standard has much room for improvement....staff were unattentive and unfriendly..

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
