Reviews for Kimchi Garden

One of my favorite places to go if I'm looking for something closer to campus than downtown. The service is generally pretty quick and the food is consistent. Plus, they have free miso soup! I haven't found a dish here that I haven't liked, but as I am more of a vegetable person, my go to is usually the bimbimbap. Don't forget to grab their bimbimbap sauce as well to add some flavor!

On another note, I came to Kimichi Garden today with my friend and she had the spicy chicken with rice. I tasted it and thought it tasted spicy, but tasted quite bland - the dish lacked salt or something flavorful (like soy sauce??). Another time, I had come here to try their hot spicy stew, but it also lacked salt in the stew. I'm not sure if this is full review
TL;DR: A decent Korean option near Berkeley campus. My cool friend and I came here for a dinner. My friend got the ramen and I got the soft tofu soup. We shared the fried chicken (soy garlic). The soft tofu soup was quite good, although I should have ordered the spicy version for an extra kick. Together with rice and japchae, the soft tofu soup option was actually quite a decent meal (nothing wowed me, but it did a good job for a quick soft tofu soup fix). The fried chicken full review
