Good Food

We enjoy eating at Kim's as the food is really good but we don't go often as the service is pretty slow. Having lived in Korea, this is not unusual as the servers tend to "disappear" once your order has been taken and "resurface" when they bring the food. Food is reasonably priced for a very... read more

I am a USArmy trained Korean interpreter who lived in Korea and Japan for over 3 years and really knows Korean food. Raised in Brooklyn, NY I also know American tastes. If you are trying Kim's for the first time try the Pork or Beef Bulgogi, I've never met an American who did not love it. It's like our US... More

Not my first or last visit to Kim's. I am a sushi fan and Kim's does not disappoint. The Korean box lunches are very well proportioned for the low price offered. Service is friendly and attentive. Restaurant is well kept and clean.

The lunch specials are awesome! All between 5-9 dollars and come with salad crispy pot stickers, Kimchi, and rice. Not to mention their sushi is awesome! This place is a great value for some awesome Korean food!

I DO NOT recommend. Walked in to an empty restaurant and server tried to convince us to sit at a table instead of a booth like we asked. She complained when we wanted to move chairs over for our friends. We were ignored until our friends arrived. Server didn't want to hear anything we said she kept pointing to the... More

The food is excellent! Their Kalbi and Bulgolgi are both very tasty. The side dishes are yummy as well. Although service is awesome, the waitress can use some more help.

You gotta like Korean food or you just won't like it. Having lived in Korea we enjoyed it's wonder food there but this is so much better than what we had over there.

Thanks to Tripadvisor we found another great place to eat in Fort Walton and away from 98. The service was excellent and the family loved the Korean flavor of the food. We tried their sushi and it was excellent. We will definitely go back.

Well this was our first time at Kims. The sushi was excellent. We sat at the sushi bar, the staff and service was excellent as well. The sushi chef was great! He answered our questions about different rolls and even gave us a sample of one. I will be going back for the sushi probably once a week now. The... More

My family of eight ate here and we were not impressed. The restaurant is not visually appealing inside or out, but we thought we would give it a shot anyway. The service was attentive and friendly, but the food was not at all enjoyable. We all ordered different items and shared, but none of us was able to finish our... More
