KayagumKayagum isn't something you can pick up at the impulse counter of your supermarket's cashier. Rather, it is a 24-hour Korean restaurant on Yonge, just south Finch, in the heart of Koreatown North. With polite and prompt service, this is an excellent place to feed your late night munchies, possibly by sampling their excellent spicy fried chicken.

I live close by and dine there once a month of so. It's a relatively new restaurant. Food is pretty good. It's not the cheapest Korean restaurant,but everything seem to be fresh and delicious. Love their ribs and soups.Also, their washroom is probably better than any other restaurants in the city(including fine dining) -Very clean and high-tek.

I've been there quite a few times, and EVERY time i've been there the service has been horrible. The waiters/waitresses have forgotten my order on several occasions, they've taken longer than 20 minutes to give us a menu, and they wouldn't make their way over to my table even when I'd asked multiple times.

The food is good, but I don't know if the really bad service makes it worth it.

Worst Korean Restaurant ever!!! Horrible food and mediocre service, I went with my friend around 9:00pm on a Thursday, ordered:

A02 Jap Chae ($5.96) - Was pretty on point

D17 GGanPungGi ($16.95) - Tasted like ketchup and worcestershire sauce, looked like deep fried chicken tossed in sauce like wings... ( the real stuff has some peppers and pineapples) and a very very different sauce.

M08 DdukBaeGi Bulgogi ($8.95) - This tasted okay.

This meal was the worse experience I have ever had, and I eat out everyday 3 - 4 times a day.

Upon informing the waitress that this D17 was not cooked properly, as I have tried this dish at multiple Korean restaurants before and I know how this dish is supposed to taste and look like, she asked me to wait so she can go ask someone, returned and took my dish away to go "ask someone"

I informed her I would rather pick another dish that they couldn't mess up, ie. something like Don Katsu. I was refused as she told me the chef is re-cooking the dish for me.

The dish returned looking just as bad as the first time it was set on my table. I asked to speak to the Owner, and was informed they are not in, I asked to speak to the Manager, who was also conveniently not in. I asked to speak to the chef, he was too busy in the back.

I paid for what I ordered, including the GGanPungGi that was untouched other then the tester piece.

This Restaurant is an AVOID at all cost, definitely not accustomed to how business should be ran in Canada yet. I would have been satisfied if the owner/manager on duty had the courtesy to come out and apologize seeing that we did not touch that dish.

I chose the sashimi appetizer and was SO impressed with how fresh and tasty the raw fish was. The tuna was so incredibly smooth and fresh that I felt like I was back in Japan. For a predominantly Korean restaurant that also serves Japanese food, this was so incredible for me to discover.
