Critics Consensus

Kim's Convenience may look like an old school sitcom, but its depiction of a Korean Canadian shop owner and his lovable family is positively refreshing.

    This is a sheer delight. As a budding cranky old man, Appa is my new hero.
  • Aug 12, 2021
    Fantastic show with amusing storyline's and a great ensemble cast. I only recently discovered this and have already binged all 5 seasons. Very well done the writers rarely missed a mark and the cast were flawless
  • Jul 06, 2021
    Fresh and entertaining comedy about an adorable array of characters.

    im viet but i guess asians have a lot in common. this show is relatable, heartfelt, i want to show it to my parents.

    One of the best shows on Netflix! I can't wait for a new season. Loveable, funny characters with great stories. Easy to watch! It's hard to stop from watching the next episode.

    The writing is brilliant, snappy, fun, funny and always relevant. The ensemble cast has wicked-great chemistry - I kinda think of it as the Korean "Goldbergs" - which if you knew me, you'd know that is meant as a huge compliment!

    Horrible acting and dialog. Racist, sexist and disgustingly stupid. Do Canadians think every asian is Korean and talks like Mr Miagi?
  • Feb 04, 2021
    A very funny and unique show portraying this small conflicts between asian parents with their korean traditions vs children who grew up in a western culture. In this PC world we are living right know, it can be viewed by some as full of stereotypes, but for me it's a nice homage to most asian immigrants who adapted to America but still kept their traditions and values. Probably a lot of people (specially whose parents are immigrants) can relate to some, if not most, of the situations. The father is the star of the show!!!!

    For me, the dad steals the show and the mom is a close second. Together they are perfect. Daughter Janet and her arguments with her Appa and Umma {parents}, are priceless. The son's storyline is the weakest part of the show, it's ok but not to the level of the others.
