The restaurant is clean and comfortable and the staff is warm and courteous. The food, ah the food; it's like being back in Korea where I spent over a decade in the 60s and 70s. If you have never experienced Korean cuisine, this is a great place to start and I guarantee you'll be back again and again. If you... More

We went here for dinner. I had vegetable dumplings as an appetizer, spicy squid as a main course and fried ice cream for dessert. Everything was delicious. The staff was amazing! They even handed us candy as we left! The only negative- the decor was a bit aged and could withstand modernization.

I spent a night in Colonial Heights on my way down to North Carolina for a college reunion. I was looking forward to dinner at Koreana, after having read all the good reviews here on Tripadvisor. I stayed at the nearby Hilton Garden Inn and the walk to the restaurant was very easy, the places are kitty-korner from one another.... More

Recently stopped here for lunch while passing through colonial heights. The food was delicious and service was exceptional. While we didn't partake in the lunch buffet, the menu had plenty to offer and our food was out very quickly. They even brought a free cup of seweed soup to our table to try. Which was very good. I would definitely... More

Visited the place while in town. The sweet old lady working there might be the nicest person in the world. I recommend dining in as they provide small plates as an appetizer. Main course was delicious as well: bulgogi.

Never had anything other than a great meal here. Would come for the appetizers alone but the meals are so good we keep returning. The owner provides the service and she always has excellent suggestions. The menu is extensive, the food consistently well prepared.

This is a great Korean place. It's owned and managed by the sweetest Korean lady. She is very friendly and her food is just excellent. I'm retired military and know what good Korean should taste like and she serves exceptional food. Go there you won't be disappointed

Our server hardly spoke english and was too distracting and may be even annoying. I lived in Korea for 2 years. Food was decent, fresh, authentic but portions were very small. I dunno if it was organic, but looked good. Even free appetizers couldn't help. I had bibimbap. My girlfriend had bibimbap with beef. And another bad thing for me... More

Five different types of kimchi--all great. Traditional Korean fare on the buffet. Well priced, good selection and great service.
