“Delicious Korean Secret in Woodbridge, VA”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Must have eaten here 10-12 times and I have never been disappointed by the food. Everything I've tried has tasted just as I remember from when I lived in South Korea. One stand out is the Bi Bim Bap, both hot and cold versions. Love the heated stone bowl that the hot version is served in. Keeps everything hot through to the last bite.
The only slight shortcoming is the lack of a liquor license. Washing down some Bulgogi and rice with an OB beer would make a good dish great. Or, finishing off a meal with a Soju toast would help round out what is already a very good dining experience.
Ambiance is fine, but for me that not very important. I would rate it as 3 out of 5; though a 5 for cleanliness.
Korean Grill is a solid gem hiding out in your average everyday strip mall. Worth the search!

“Great Korean Food outside the Beltway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

Preface: I love the Korean restaurants in Annandale, VA. They have a hip, urban atmosphere that feels like downtown Seoul. What if you find yourself closer to Woodbridge, VA? There's a great little Korean restaurant called Korean Grill that cooks up great, classic dishes at a great value.

The one dish that wins, hands-down, is the "Hot Pot Bi-Bim-Bap". There is a small, extra cost to get the "Hot Pot" version of this dish, and without a question, it's worth it. It is a cast iron, small cauldron-looking dish with rice, veggies, and marinated steak, along with an egg on top. The cast iron pot makes the rice crispy on the bottom - you just need to try this!

The atmosphere is pretty good. It is a clean restaurant. My only suggestion for improvement is to hire an additional server. Often times, there would be one server rushing around to keep everyone happy - she did a great job, but she looked like she could have used some help!

“Very authentic, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

Love the food here. The husband and wife who own this place are really nice. Their daughters and son are the wait staff and are super friendly. I love their kimchi jiggae, dang jang jiggae, chop chae (her's is the best and a little spicy).

“Just like eating in Seoul”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

This is our favorite restaurant to eat at in Woodbridge. Family owned and operated, the service is impeccable and the food is the best I have had since living in Korea. We ate here often while living in the area and it was on our must do list when we visited the area recently. The bulgogi is excellent, mandu can be fried or steamed, and the five types of kimchi served with dinners are wonderful.
