Somewhat limited menu, but what they do have is very good and the portions are large. The waitresses have always been friendly, and there is an outdoor seating option, which is really nice. The food isn't terribly spicy. Pretty good beer selection as well.

The food here will have you coming back for more!! I have never had such fresh Asian food of any kind, but this Korean sets the bar incredibly high. Freshly chopped vegetables in everything! You have to try the egg rolls with the peanut sauce. You just have to. Then order 1 bi-bim bop and 1 bugolki and share it... More

I know I've revues this place before, but I can't help it, it's that good. Very pleasant wait staff, the food is always very good. This has become our goto place for something good, reasonably healthy, and not expensive. Good Korean food. Try the Bulgogi, I love the spicy squid, the fiance likes the pork.

I highly recommend the bulgogi! I usually order the spicy shrimp bulgogi, but sometimes I get the regular shrimp bulgogi or spicy squid bulgogi to change things up. There's a good variety of fresh crisp vegetables in these dishes Many other delicious options on the menu as well, including vegetarian choices.

The food here is very good, and they also do carry out orders. The menu is extensive. I love the veggie mandu and chicken bulgogi.

My family ate at the Oriental Spoon tonight. We tried pork, chicken, shrimp and tofu Bulgogi which is a similar to Mongolian Beef but with an amazing, addictive spicy ginger sauce. We also tried the chicken curry and Bibimbap which came with egg drop soup. The curry chicken was the most generous portion of the lot. It was chicken was... More

I don't recall giving Oriental Spoon my review even though I have been visited them since their opening. Edwardsville has caught quite attention lately with Peel Wood Fire Pizzas, 1820 Chop House..Oriental Spoon just gives Edwardsville another stamp of diversity. The place is quite small yet they are clean and you can see part of the kitchen floor, which is... More

My wife and I have eaten here multiple times. It's definitely not fast food. Everything is made to order, and it shows in the final product. The chef clearly knows what he is doing, from the Korean egg drop soup (some of the best we've ever had) to the Bibimbap, the Bulgogi, and the Ramyun. The Gim rolls are awesome... More

Great food! We ate the chicken bulgogi bowl and bibimbap. It tasted like the food I had when I was in Korea. The restaurant was really nice, and clean. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone!
