We've been customers of Koreana since the days they were just a tiny place in the back of a small Korean grocery store. The food is consistently delicious, well prepared, well seasoned. Four of us recently ordered take out: Salmon nigiri, Jumbo Spider Roll, Dragon Roll, Jahb Chae, Ribeye Gal-bi, Chicken Tempura with Miso soup. Everything was fresh, well made... More

We have been to this restaurant several times over the years, both when we lived in the area and after when visiting. After this visit we probably will not go back. It was extremely slow. We do not blame the server as there were only 2 for the entire restaurant. But both sushi and dinner were so slow we almost... More

On our anniversary weekend we decided spur the moment to go to Koreana to celebrate, just the two of us. We were told there would be a 20 minute wait. It turned into a 30+ minute wait. The food was good, and the service was courteous. I had the Jahb Chae and my husband had the Korean Barbeque. He said... More

Best thing ever is their Jumbo Tempura Shrimp appetizer. Holy cow, I had to go back a week later just because I was craving it. The service is very good. ..Wait staff knowledgeable and attentive. Beef Bulgogi is a winner. My personal fave is the Korean rice/vegetable/ meat bowl called Bi Bim Bahb . My son always orders the various... More

I love everything about this place! I love the sushi-my favorite roll is the Magic Crunch. They can even tailor it for pregnant women!! The Bulgogi is amazing as well as the rice bowls! I usually can't decided so I get sushi and a hot meal. Leftovers are still so good. The only thing I would criticize is the wait... More

We waited 45 minutes to be seated. Which was expected. What wasn't expect was the hour and a quarter we waited for our food. The food to table time here is usually slow, tonight was external busy though. The hostess was very nice and ask if we wanted a different roll, when the big spider was overly deep fried (it... More

My son and I stopped in at Koreana after our first two choices were closed. Quite honestly, we only stumbled upon Koreana because a restaurant in the shopping center next door was closed. But man were we glad we stumbled upon it! The Korean BBQ beef short ribs were among the best we've had, and the beef bulgogi was tremendous.... More

We love going to Koreana on our special occasions. Our favorites for the sushi choices are Salmon and Yellowtail, and Magic crunch (for my husband). Our family usually order Rock bowl Bibimbap (hot stone bowl keeps cooking the rice crisp on the bottom) with squid and purple rice, combination tempura dinner, and some sushi and share everything.

Koreana's is easily one of the best restaurants in the Fox Valley. And even the pickiest eater can find something on the menu to love. We've never had bad service or been let down by the food. My only suggestion is don't go there when you want a quick bite. This is a meal that is meant to be savored... More
