Since we have been searching for an authentic local Korean restaurant on the Gold Coast, we are delighted to have finally found Koreana. We started with the beef dumplings, which were average, lacking meat. One our favourites is the traditional spicy beef soup, so we both ordered this dish. It came with glass noodles and a sprinkling of vegetables. The... More

Delicious BBQ. Friendly staff. A nice big hot plate of BBQ meats with bowl of rice costs only $14. They have the combi BBQ meats DIY style for $59. Good hearty food for dinner. Cons: reservations are required for this small family oriented joint.

I've eaten here twice in a week.....and it was so good I had the same meal....bbq pork (spicy) and rice. It also comes with a couple of sides including miso soup. The price, for what you get, is an absolute bargain! Service is quick, friendly and efficient. I look forward to trying more things off their menu.

Very tasty! The place was packed when we were there, they even had to turn people away! Always a good sign. Staff were fast and friendly, serving sizes were good, cooking the BBQ is always fun and the food tasted delicious! Certainly the place doesn't look fancy and I guess it isn't! But it does taste great and we would... More

The food at this place is to die for! Don't be fooled by the informal cafe style appearance of the restaurant. The food is absolutely fantastic, the serving sizes are very generous and the staff are lovely! Highly recommended!!

Simplicity At Its Best. A Bbq Is Put On You Table With Some Sides That Match The Food Well, A Platter of marinated Meat Or Seafoods And You Cook Youself, Then Eat With Chopstix. It Was An Absolute Enjoyable Tasty Experience And We Are Hooked! The Problem Is We Dont Have A Korean Bbq Restaurant Were We Live Worst Luck.... More

This isn't a location you'd write home about, but the food is excellent in both value and taste. A great little hole-in-the-wall on an interior walkway of a small bazaar two blocks from the beach. Enjoy the taste now and the money you'd saved later!
