Reviews for Kyung Ju Restaurant

One of the rare Korean restaurants around town – Right off of the 826 in North Miami and federal Hwy is Kyung Ju. There aren't oo many Korean restaurants around. It's a casual and cute place to get decent Korean food. They have your traditional dishes. Also on this street are a few asian stores, reataurants. I think there might be an asian gorcery store or two.

North Miami restaurant offers authentic Korean dining in a quaint atmosphere. – In Short
The sparsely decorated dining room is large and can seat up to 100 people. Authentic dishes crowd the menu, and even though it may be a challenge to understand, it's hard to go too wrong. Entrees include grilled monkfish and chicken as well as Chinese specialties such as pan-fried dumplings. Sides include miso made with soy bean paste, cubes of springy tofu and sea-greens. Desserts consist of fruit drenched in hot, melted sugar.

It's my favorite place in Miami – Wow, I read the bad review and almost didn't go. My suggestion; go and judge for yourself. That's exactly what I did, and since then, it's turned into my favorite place. In my opinion, you can't completely judge a restaurant on the first try. I understand that consistency is key, but in reality, it is possible to have a bad experience in a very good restaurant.

I enjoy the casual yet intimate ambiance. Each table is separated by wooden walls which makes it very comfortable. The service is always very friendly. I'm usually a very harsh critic with authenticity in foods, but I can honestly tell you, this was very authentic and very good. Try it for yourself, you'll see.

Don't Even Think About It – My wife is Korean. We know the food. Have even been to the real city of Kyung Ju. Walking in here, the place looks right. Except that at 8:30 on a Friday night we were literally the only customers in the place. Should have been a hint. Sorry to say, this is not Korean food. Or it is just the worst Korean food we've yet run across. Best guess is the kitchen is full of non-Koreans. No Korean cook could be this far off. Not just inauthentic. We are used to a little Americanization in some Korean restaurants. The food here is just lousy! Also very expensive; most dishes 50% to 100% more than we usually pay in GOOD Korean restaurants in other US cities. Korean food is incredibly wonderful. This place's misrepresentation of it is an incredible shame.
