I usually get the teriyaki bowl with chicken and brown rice. It is enough for 2 meals. The ingredients are always fresh. The food comes out rather quickly and the wait staff is always friendly. The restaurant is very clean.

Kim's has been a favorite spot of ours for years. The hibachi is always good and I'd recommend the ginger dressing with the salad. The dolsot bibimbap is amazing as well. Wonderful atmosphere as well and always great service.
