A large Korean restaurant and take away on High Holborn, Kimchee's expansive space is partitioned by looming black wood screens; there’s counter seating along the floor to ceiling windows à la Busaba Eathai, the rest being benches and large shared tables in the style of Wagamama.
The menu is a good one for fans of fiery Korean cooking, with a lot of the crowd-pleasing classics such as dolsot bibimbap (rice cooked in a hot stone bowl with various toppings) and meaty barbecues (all cooked in the kitchen with its open grill, not at the table). Other options include barbecued pork belly, skewers of beef tongue and mixed namul, consisting of pickled radish, seasoned beansprouts and spinach.
Expect queues at lunch and early evening.
