My wife tried Hwa-Ki a week ago and really wanted me to try it so off to Kingston we went to do some errands and try the restaurant. It is a small pleasant restaurant on Princess St almost directly across from Trailhead. It isn't fancy but a comfortable place for some great food with an atmosphere conducive to sitting and...

Tried out and now a new favourite. Sushi was great and also the chicken appetizer. Son loved the miso soup. Server answered lots of questions for us as we were not familiar with the dishes. Thanks!

Hwaki is the best kept secret of Kingston's culinary scene. The atmosphere is fairly informal and the prices good, but you still feel as though you are eating in a high end restaurant. The food is excellent and authentic. The sushi has been great every time I've been there. The udon is delicious. The bibimbap is the best I've ever... More

Went for lunch; bypassed the lunch menu in favour of Stone Bibimbaps: spicy pork, bulgogi and squid (they all come with a fried egg on top). Throw in a delicious milky white ox bone soup with (I think yam) glass noodles, tasty kimchi pancakes the likes of which I have never had before and ddeok bokki (thick rice noodles), wow!... More

I've never had Korean food until I went to Hwaki with some friends. They had great kimchi fried rice and bougolgi bibimbap. We also had a hotpot, which was tasty too. Overall, it was a great dining experience that I'd recommend for lunch!

The Korean food is good, the waitress is nice, and I really enjoy it! Next time I visit Kingston with my friends I will recommend this restaurant.

I tried this place when it first opened. I got the sushi and thought it was pretty terrible. I refused to ever go back, but a group of friends wanted to go recently so I relented. I got the spicy pork bibimbap and it was delicious!! The rice near the bowl was extremely crispy/crunchy. It had good flavours, but you... More

We went as a family and everyone enjoyed their dinner. The noodle dish was perfect and served sizzling on a hot plate. The booths give plenty of room.

I convinced a friend to sample this restaurant for our monthly lunch catch-up session, but also add another trial to my search for good Korean food in Kingston. Upon entering, I was already impressed at the more detailed thought into the décor of the restaurant - a modern Zen twist. The menu had good variety of Korean items (including a... More
