Good for: Special occasions, Families with children
Dining options: Dinner, Lunch, Full Bar, Reservations, Seating, Serves Alcohol, Waitstaff
Neighborhood: Pimlico
Description: The name comes from the maiden name of the current proprietors' grandmother, and Kym's is still very much a family affair. This composed, affable restaurant serves hot and spicy cuisine rooted in its regional Chinese heritage - with a dim sum menu for lunch - to a hectic crowd of politicians, ambassadors and locals drawn to its bustling Victoria location.

“Exquisite Chinese Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

We thought we'd try this newly refurbished and modernised local restaurant having never gone there in 20 years of living in Pimlico whilst it was Kym's although it is still in the "family". We loved the modern and very stylish décor. Service is efficient and courteous. The choices of how you'd like to style your dining experience are fun; from a la carte "dishes" to Chinese street snacks served sitting at the bar. The kitchen is visible from the restaurant, making the activity in the kitchen part of the restaurant’s theatre. We chose to sample a few of the dishes and shared Dim Sum platter, Dry braised salt and pepper tiger prawn, Five spice smoked cod cheeks, Razor clam with braised sea cucumber, pickled cucumber, wind dried sausage and soy butter, Honey roasted pork with plum and yellow bean dip, Chicken in black bean sauce and crab & seafood wrapped in Chinese lettuce. All of the food (especially the cod cheeks, absolutely yummy!) was fresh, delicious and beautifully presented and each dish garnished individually and imaginatively although portions are small. We are regulars at Hakkasan but thought much smaller, local A.Wong's to be up there with the restaurant experience food-wise, if not exactly the vast cave that is Hakkasan. We will definitely be back!

“Pleasant dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

Five of us chose the pre-theatre menu. It was a pleasant no-nonsense evening. The food was very tasty, the ribs were tender, the rice was cooked well as was the noodles. Portions are small. Considering the restaurant was almost full, the staff were extremely professional and polite. It is close to Victoria station and near a bus stop and there is no background music, which is a bonus. I would certainly go there again and this time I will choose from the a-la-carte menu.

“Yummmmmmy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012

My gal pal and I ate here last evening after seeing Wicked. Random choice of restaurant but there was nothing random about the fantastic food and service. We were welcomed warmly by Andrew and staff, served quality wine and superb food. After three courses of tasty cooked to perfection food, we finished with a Master Chef worthy granite meringue dessert. We ate everything with delight and took home takeaway for the hubby babysitter. Loved the ribs, fried seaweed and beef noodles Thank you Andrew!

“Love it after the refurbisment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

The place just got a complete refurbishment, including new kitchen and menu. Food is exquisite. It's proper chinese fine dining. Portions are a bit small, but the price per dish means you can same a few more if you are with a group.
