“We're not Korean, but we LOVED this place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Excellent food, excellent service. We were four adults with 9-month old baby. Very comfortable seating in large booth. Enjoyed the crispy, light-battered, non-greasy shrimp/veggie tempura most of all. But everything was very tasty: traditional beef bulgogi w/ excellent side dishes like daikon radish, spinach, kim-chee and sticky rice; a chicken rice-noodle dish; a spicy tofu stew. Easy free parking in rear. We'll definitely be back!

“One of the few decent Korean places around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

I eat lunch and dinner on a weekly basis here.
While their sushi is not as good as before since they had to let go their sushimen after the economic downturn, their other hot dishes have held on quite well.
Their lunch menus are of decent value with good sized portions.

If you crave korean food, this restaurant is the place to go. Good portion, kids friendly, not crowded and good service when not busy.

“Best Sushi in Boston”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2008

After moving to Boston 2 years ago, Chung Ki Wa has become a staple for my boyfriend and I. The sushi is always fresh and delicious and the entrees are always cooked perfectly. One of my favorite dishes is the Squid Special. It's extremely spicy and the squid is never rubbery or overcooked like you usually find in chain restaurants. I have shared Chung Ki Wa with many of my friends both local, and visiting from out of town, and everyone has seemed to agree with my sentiments. Don't pass up the opportunity the next time you're in Medford, MA... you won't regret it!
