I liked it!

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... read 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.

My husband and I went here for a late lunch. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The waitress/cashier/seemingly the only staff there was sweet and even made some recommendations of what to get. When she brought our appetizer she even included a couple of extra things she wanted us to try. The food was very good. The atmosphere was... More

I suggest the beef wrapped in lettuce and rice. I was stationed in South Korea for two years. Food here is just like I ate it in Korea. Nice employees and great with the kids

When I first went to Koreana, it was located in the Walnut Mall in Petersburg VA in the 70's.... my mom, who never ate out loved the food. I have never had a bad meal here - the lunch buffet is full of great staples of the menu that have not changed since day one. From the chap chae and... More
