nicely upgraded since last time i was there with some banquettes, doesn’t ruin the nice ambience it already has but lifted things a bit further. Food excellent and well priced.

I have been going to kimchi hop house for years and the food and service has always been excellent. While it is not the cheapest place to eat in Dublin, the consistency of flavour and service has never disappointed me. I have always recommended kimchi hop house to friends and family and wish them all the best in their future business!

The food was very good and the staffs were very friendly. But I had an impression that the menu has more Japanese dish rather Korean, while Kimchi is well known Korean food.

Lovely food and place. Lots of staff, really helpful but maybe checking in on us too much! Would be great if the waiters had a knowledge of what make the dish vegan/vegetarian and if it’s possible to adapt. But lovely experience, thanks!

Service was great and staff super friendly and helpful. We had an array of food, most was outstanding and some okay. Not quite the pre pandemic standard, but a great evening was had, good music, good wine and beer, good food and nice atmosphere. Not overpriced like some other inner city establishment. Looking forward to the next visit.

The place has great ambience and the food is very good however I made a reservation for indoor dining and I was given an outdoor table. Also, the place is popular and gets busy so my food took around 20 min more than the rest of the people at the table.
