“What a rip off”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

we were happy to find Korean restaurant while we have not eaten Korean foods for a while. We ordered 1) DoenJang JjiKye(soybean paste stew): this was ok, very plain but still edible. 2) Kalbi(short rib): not fresh, taste like marinaded for a long time. 3)HaeMool PaJeon(Seafood pancake): not much seafoods, not much green onion, basically all dough... greasy...4) JjamBbong(Hot and Spicy noodle soup): I have never taste like this... they used instant noodle soup package for KalGookSu, not for JamBbong. Even KalGookSu, thry did not use quality noodle, just cheap instant noodle ramen package adding spices and little bit of seafoods medley, while all other Korean restaurant use big shrimp, mussels, sqid...
Overall we had impression that they cut short to make more money using very cheap ingredients. Price was as high as very good Korean restaurants. Anyone who want to be desperate to taste of Korean seasongings, spices, then you can go. Otherwise avoid this rip off!

“One of the many great restaurants that are coming to Greenfield”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

My wife and I dropped in on the Manna House for lunch the day before Christmas and had a great experience. Our first experience with Korean food and won't be our last. The staff was friendly and efficient and the food was terrific. All in all, another quality restaurant in Western Mass.

“Great meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

We had dinner at Manna House last night. All the dishes we had were very individual and all very well done.
(Added plus, you can bring your own wine or beer!)

“First experience with Korean food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Stopped in for a lunch date last week, and my boyfriend and I were both very happy with the experience. He had the Yaki Mandu (pan fried pork dumplings) and I had the Kal Guk Su (thick noodle soup with scallions and garlic)- both delicious. The noodles were definitely hand-made and fresh and SO much better than your garden-variety overcooked restaurant pasta. I also enjoyed the plate of kimchi and some sort of pickled vegetable that came with the meal. As a lover of all things pickled and fermented, the kimchi was the highlight of the meal for me. It does take a while to get your food, but that is understandable as they make everything to order. Next time I will try something more adventurous!

“Good food but overly priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This place has really good authentic Korean food. I went to several Korean places in Northampton and Amherst but this one has entirely different menu and everything we ordered was very delicious. Will go back soon.
