Doesn't look like much from the outside

But it is nice inside, even if it is a bit on the small side. We ordered a variety of sushi, rolls and sashimi. Everything was fresh although the service seemed slow. Prices were in line with other sushi restaurants we've been to in the area. The Korean food smelled really good and we will... read more

the place is always busy, and i have been there three times. each time the service seemed rushed and non-welcoming. the food is good, and few korean places remain in the area. the final straw for me was getting murky water for drinking. i never touched the glass, ate my food and left; never planning to return.

A work colleague recommended this restaurant close to our hotel. It's located in a relatively obscure spot in a strip mall. Decor is basic and clean but the food was very good. Gracious, helpful staff. My dinner companions enjoyed a combination sushi appetizer while I was pleased with a bowl of dumpling soup. Two of us then followed with excellent... More

This is hands down one of my favorite "hole in the wall" restaurants on the east coast. The food is and service awesome, the atmosphere is just ok. I do think that the restaurant could use a little update, but I have never been disappointed a meal or service at Kimchihana. I took a coworker with me and she was... More

Sushi was fresh and food was good. Korean dishes with lot's of free side dishes were good. This is casual restaurant.

After a random search on the net for some Korean food, we chanced upon this place and decided to give it a try. Comfort food for a cold cold weather. Authentic and not westernized. A lot of Korean diners there and the staff are all Koreans too. Would want to come back here again before I leave NJ!

This Korean Restaurant is great. The seafood pancake and Korean BBQ are extremely delicious. however the ventilation is not quite good. You would get a lot of BBQ smell after you finish your meal there. In Summary, I would say the food is good, but condition is okay. It's worth a try =)

I am not very knowledgable about Korean cuisine and went there on a friend's recommendation. Staff were helpful and guided our choices to suit our palettes. I found the food really good and liked the ambience of the charcoal grill right on the table. BYOB and reasonably priced make it good value.

I have been here before and this time I came here with a group of people. The service here is very good. The waiters and waitresses here are very attentive. They frequent the table to make sure that you still have tea/water in your glass. I enjoy the unlimited *appetizers* very much. A wide range of small dishes for you... More

Very high-quality Korean food. We have had Korean BBQ at highly rated places in Manhattan Korea town and the food here is just as good, if not better. They use charcoal instead of gas, which makes the BBQ extra-tasty. BBQ is a must, but the food from the kitchen is also excellent. Service has been variable at times, but was... More
