Very good quality and staff

The hostess seated our party of 3 right away even though we were a little early for our reservation. We knew we wanted to try a little of everything so we opted for appetizers and BBQ. We started our meal off with the Kimchi Pancakes (unfortunately I can't speak to the taste since I didn't want to... read more

Went for a late dinner, so I was glad at 9:50pm the restaurant's kitchen was still open. I had only steamed gyoza and fried rice with beef, which were ok. Nothing particular. Have to try again on a more extensive and courageous menu...

We have gone here a few times since my husband is Korean. The beef bulgogi is VERY good. I tend to over eat when I go there for it! The spicy pork bulgogi was not as good - I have had better - but still decent. My kids love the bulgogi and chicken kid's meals, especially the cute plates they... More

I admit that I'm not generally a Korean food fan, even after trying some of the best in Flushing, Queens. But friends of mine in Cambridge took me to Koreana when I visited last week and insisted that I try the bibimbap -- not previously a favorite dish of mine. I ordered the chicken bibimbap and, happily, it was as... More

I you are in or around Cambridge, don't miss this place! Great food, served fast by friendly staff. It can be full even during the week, so try to make a reservation. Try the shrimp bibimbap! You won't forget it.

The soup dishes are pretty good (I had the spicy fish roe tang my last visit) but other dishes were less 'authentic' - for example the spicy rice cake was adulterated with vegetables. The fried rice was a bit soggy and not spicy like what you would typically expect. Will probably not go back there.

Over 50% of the patrons are Koreans or of Asian decent. The service was excellent! Not in-your-face, but very efficient, attentive and kind. My vegetarian bibimbop was incredible...just what I needed after a morning of lobster tails, pizza and too much coffee in Boston proper. The miso soup was cleansing and delicious with fresh cilantro. The meal had very fresh... More

There is no many meals on earth that are as good as good Korean BBQ. Its not easy to find good Korean BBQ in America so when you land one, hang on to their business card. This is one of those. Service is excellent, the price is reasonable and the meat and menu choices are perfect. Great restaurant !!

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
