Fresh, tasty and well priced

We ate here good Friday and it was busy but service was prompt and friendly. Excellent traditional Korean food with good portion size and super fresh ingredients.

The staff here are helpful if you are new to Korean food and need/want some advice and guidance about food choices. The food is simple, tasty and fresh...and I really enjoy the fact that it is cooked at the table. The decor is basic...simple and plain...but I often find that authentic and fresh Asian food comes from these types of... More

We shared a boiled up seafood dish here. It was pleasant enough but we were a little put off by the fish heads it contained. As an experience of 'real' Korean food it was OK but there are better places to eat in Surfers Paeadise, unless we chose the wrong dish!

Not a regular visitor to Korean restaurants we walked past Koreana originally looking for a Chinese or Thai restaurant. Consulting Trip Advisor (as you do!) this popped up with great ratings and reviews. The experience was fantastic which is surprising because the set up, decor and overall appearance appears more as a cheap sandwich bar than a sophisticated restaurant. Highly... More

We stumbled upon Koreana, and were a bit nervous as the kids had never eaten Korean. We all loved it - and our kids are fussy eaters. The service was great and the food delicious. We had a really great night.

We stood at the door for 5 mins and no one bothered serving us. Dont want to visit again even if the food was good.

We had the pork belly and the pork ribs on a hot stone stove which was awesome. The waitress provided great service and cooked for us. Price was reasonable and we had a great feed. Highly recommended. 😊

When we first arrived we were surprised that the restaurant wasn't as fancy as others we have been to. Once we were given the menu though we were quite excited and were not disappointed by the food. Everything was beautifully presented, market fresh, and deliciously marinated. Service was excellent and very fast.

The wife and I went to Koreana for Saturday night dinner while in SP. Don't be fooled by the dodgy decor and relaxed atmosphere this is a seriously good place to eat. We had beef kalbi and pork bulgogi along with the standard Korean sides. In a word delicious. The bulgogi was the best I have have eaten, and I... More
