Korean in Asheville

We know good Korean food. Stone bowl is pretty good, but the best in Asheville (in a now crowded field). They don't have the table grills and this is not authentic Korean, but tasty and quite good. The veggie pancake appetizer is good but a little greasy. The stone bowls are all good. My wife... read more

This was the first Korean meal I've eaten. The restaurant was clean and attractive. The sanitation score is 96.0. Our waitress did a great job explaining the menu items. I decided to try the lunch box instead of the lunch bowl. Glad I did because the bowl has a lot of food. My daughter ordered the bowl and loved it.... More

The Stonebowl is located in a small strip mall and that kind of sets the scene for what to expect. The menu is extensive but the waitress was not overly helpful in giving insight to items that were not familiar to most customers. The food was A-OK & the atmosphere was nothing of note. Would not rush back for a... More

Stone Bowl has been a favorite of mine since it landed in South Asheville. I always order the Bulgogi bowl, and it never disappoints. Stone Bowl has such fresh flavors and great kimchi that I could eat there almost everyday. The only consistent problem that I've noticed in the ten or so times that I've been there is that the...

We had the Korean seafood pancake and the bulgogi stone bowl. I was amazed at how good it was. The dipping sauce alone for the pancake is worth coming back. The food is fresh and the service was great. I just went to Korea this summer and my friend from Japan even liked it a lot. We went 2 times... More

We were visiting Asheville with some friends who love Asian food. After reading several reviews, we chose this place. The food was very good. The menu said that the food was spicy but none of the dishes we tried had any heat. I had the short rib soup and while it was good, I think that a little heat would... More

This is a very simple place, and those are the best for ethnic cuisines. The seafood pancake and the kimchi pancake are musts! All the dishes are great including the kids menu dish. The food is fun and tasty. It's super affordable and never disappointing. A good place for a nice weekday meal or family meal.

I have been twice and it was excellent both times. Go hungry and with an open mind and you won't be disappointed. I got the rice bowl and the rice and veggies and meats and egg continue to cook yielding a wonderful variety of textures - crunchy, soft, chewy, but all delicious.

I am not an expert in Korean food, and this is one of 2 Korean themed restaurants in Asheville. It is located in a small commercial strip development on Hendersonville Rd. in South Asheville, and some have complained about the lack of appeal to the location. Don't let that get in the way of trying this restaurant. If you get... More
