About Us

Established in 2011, Kimchi Cult is Scotland’s first Korean style fast food take away just off Byres Road, in Glasgow’s West End – and we’re mad for spicy, fermented cabbage.


Our kimchi is handcrafted to a special Jeonju regional recipe, passed down through generations of Korean matriarchs or ajjumas, through our spiritual leader, Myung Ja Ahn of Shinbengi Restaurant.

Just like traditional Korean cooking, you’ll find fermented veg, pickles and flavours balanced by five colours and five tastes – but with a unique Cult twist. Try it for yourself.

Orders can be made via our click and collect menu, walk-in or delivery via Uber Eats and we have restricted our space to 3 takeaway customers at a time. Due to the Covid 19 pandemic we are not currently offering sit in service.
