Being half Korean and growing up in Korea most of my life, I am very picky with my Korean food. My husband and I loved this place. We not only get to enjoy the foods we love but also the drinks we love. They have the rice wine and soju. The ladies there are all so sweet and I enjoyed... More

I went last night for dinner and returned today for lunch. Last night I had sam gyup sal and dwen jang chiggae. Both were quite good. The sam gyup sal was a small portion but appropriate for the price point. The chiggae was amazing, among the best I've ever had including what I've eaten in LA. The lunch buffet today... More

Being half Korean, I was fairly impressed by this place. I have spent my last four years living in South Korea and the food their was phenomenal so the bar had already been set. I tried a place in Honolulu and it was just not cutting it. I heard good things about Koreana so I thought I give it a... More

The food was flat out bad. Worst beef fried rice EVER! They cooked the BBQ for me even though I wanted to cook it myself. Which kinda takes the fun out of the experience.The waitresses were very rude and quite frankly just bullies. They pressured me and my friends to eat certain foods. Eat here at your own risk.

For years living in the area I've driven by this place, but finally decided to give it a try. It was well worth it. I stopped by for lunch and had the bulgogi. The food was delicious and hot and the side dishes just added to how great it was. Service was fast and the restaurant was clean. Best decision... More

I am working in the colonial heights area and I thought I would check this place out based on the great reviews on trip advisor It is conveniently located across from the Walmart complex (sorry I don't remember the street name). I had the miso soup, vegetable tempura, and the kimchi soup. Everything was delicious. The owner and waitstaff are... More

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
