Wonderful food, nice ambience

Our son and daughter-in-law took us here on a recent visit. The restaurant was not huge and was pretty much busy all the time we were there. Why? Because the food and service was top-notch. Steamed dumplings, Shu-mai, and spring rolls were usual fare but well-prepared as were the miso and hot-sour... read more

This is one of two Korean restaurants I eat at each time income to Providence. Good food at reasonable prices. I love the bulgogi!

I liked the decor of this place - however both food and service were only average. People were friendly, but all aspects of service took a long time and they weren't too busy. Food wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. I tried both a Korean dish and a sushi roll. Not sure what other options there are for Korean... More

Stumbled upon this restaurant out of necessity because nothing seemed to be open in this part of town past ten at night. The ambiance is welcoming and modern, and servers are very friendly, even when they sometimes could not understand English very well. Free appetizers were good, but shumai tasted like taken out of a box. Entrees fared better: spicy... More

Price is $$. A lot of things to try, especially the noodles. I like the fried seafood noodle very much. Sushi is also pretty good.

I went to Sura with a few friends, and sat at the bar. Service was prompt and friendly. I ordered the Bulgogi Pot, and was not dissappointed. 10/ 10 would dine again.

I went to this place for lunch last week. I ordered beef bulgogi bento box, which was less savory than I'd love but was not bad either. Next time I might try tofu stew and some desserts. The place is clean, pleasant, and well-decorated, and the menu seems to have a good selection, so I'd definitely come back again! Oh,... More

the lesson I learned is DON'T even bother to try Asian food in RI. I lived in NYC and the korean food in Ktown was so good. Sura's tofu stew made me almost wanted to cry..it's just one big piece of hard tofu in the pot....I should have known better.

First bites was impressive. But halfway through, we realized it was very "commercial". Very salty, tasted like it food was made with prepared sauces. If you are new to Korean food, you are probably impressed. But if you are Korean or know your Korean food, sun and moon remains most authentic. Serving only 3 banchan seems to be a providence...

When I first started school in Providence last year, I was excited to find out that there is a Korean restaurant just a block away because I'm Korean and I knew I would crave Korean food. And to be honest, at first, I didn't notice how horrible the food is there because I was so excited about starting school. But... More
