Today was our first visit to Le kimchi. We were greeted and seated quickly even though it was a Friday evening. A relatively small menu compared to a regular restaurant but the food is very delicious. After our terrible experience at Koreana on Somerset this was good sent. Friendly staff, delicious food, very clean, nice decor / colour choice. Will... More

Very Korean eatery. We were the only non-Asian guests and the others were surprised we were here. The server was not very welcoming when we arrived. The drinks chice is limited. Only one choice of red and white wine. When we asked for more he said "we are not a pub". A good restaurant should have at least 5 or... More

I had lunch at Le Kim Chi today. It was my first visit, but I will probably go back. I ordered a spicy pork stir fry, which was one of the lunch specials. It was served "bento box" style, with side dishes of spiced potatoes, kimchi and a bean sprout salad. The bent box included sticky rice, a salad that... More

Stumbled upon this place...have never eaten Korean food before. The lovely server recommended dishes for us and was very friendly and helpful! The food was fantastic - great value for money, lovely and fresh, and quick too! Highly recommend this place for an authentic Korean dining experience... Wish I could have tried one of everything on the menu! Thank you... More

We are Americans visiting Ottawa for the Tulip Festival and needed a place to eat before the fireworks started. We ventured down Preston street into Little Italy and unexpectedly found a Korean Restaurant. We had not had Korean in a while because of where we live, so we were very excited to find a place that served Bulgogi and Kimchi.... More

We had a Sunday dinner at Le Kim Chi recently. I ordered the beef short ribs, my husband ordered beef bulgogi, and two others had the supper bento box: shrimp teriyaki, pork, beef, etc. etc. EVERYTHING was delicious! It was our second time trying Korean food and I can't tell you how wonderful it is. The food is so tasty.... More

I am not always up for venturing into new food experiences but this one was worth it. There were choices that I could try and the food was quite good (I think I will try what my friend tried next time). The service was fast and friendly. The atmosphere is quite nice - great place to spend a relaxing evening... More

Have been several times and never disappointed. Quality of food is great. Patient explanations of the menu options. Small, intimate atmosphere, nice for a quiet dinner to relax and unwind.
