Was in Boston for pleasure trip last week with girlfriend and her daughter. We were looking for an Asian restaurant near Harvard Square where we were staying, but there wasn't anything well-rated there. Saw this place in Central Square (one subway stop away) had at 90% approval rating on Urban Spoon. We'd all had Korean food before and had some... More

My partner and I decided to try Koreana mostly because of a groupon she got. We arrived at a pleasant enough restaurant in the bowels of Cambridge on the corner of Prospect and Broadway. There was parking in the back of the restaurant which consisted of a small space amongst a couple of parked cars or in a gas station... More

Went to dinner at 430. So glad we did. By 5 p.m. the place was PACKED. And now I know why. Dinner was fabulous! Tons of salads to start. Fresh food. Great service. Fair prices. Hidden gem. Don't miss it.

Never had Authentic Korean food before this place. Best place to take friends visiting from out of town, or just pleasing the foodie in your family or group. High recommend this to anyone passing through Central Square.

After coming back from vacation in Korea I wanted to have some more of their delicious food. Found this restaurant in Cambridge and gave it a try. I must say the food tastes the same as in Korea. The beef barbecue is very good and you get loads of meat. They have also good coctails.

Staff very pleasant, but it does help to have a Korean translator in your party . The tables are set up easily for 8 people and each end has grill. There are many side dishes included with the main course , which adds to the meal experience. The menu has a wide variety and everything tasted so fresh. Just delicious... More

This was a great experience and the food was delicious. We initially had a little trouble communicating with our server, but it all worked out in the end. Definitely worth a visit and a great place to eat with a group. Read the whole review: http://2newcantabrigians.wordpress.com/2013/05/14/koreana-minus-wine-equals-tasty/

My boyfriend and I have talked about going for the past year due to living only 3 blocks away and having to walk by it to get to central square. The place is always packed and smells delicious. We went at 10pm on a Saturday night and were able to get a table no problem. I ordered a vodka soda... More
