Kimchi Cult is some of the best food I've ever had! All of the food has so much flavour and the price is unbeatable! An amazing place to grab some delicious Asian food - whenever I'm in the area it's top of my list!

A long overdue review here, and I’ll cut to the chase; I’ve been here several times for bibimbap and fried chicken. Today I tried the newly added honey butter chicken, with a big side salad and some plain fries, and it’s probably the best chicken...More
