Restaurant details

This restaurant is tucked into the corner of a small shopping center and is easy to miss, but it is worth seeking out. Seriously, we live 55 minutes away but make the effort to eat here at least once a month. The surroundings and decor are no-frills but clean. We generally get good service (although it can depend on who's there) and we always enjoy a fantastic meal. Our favorites are the Gimbap and the Dolsot Bibimbap. All tables are served a nice array of little kimchi dishes. The food is reasonably priced. Southwest Virginia used to be very lacking in ethnic restaurant choices, but this is one of the restaurants helping to change that.

Always great service and food. Stop by and you will not be disappointed. The food is perfectly prepared and very tasty with very generous helpings. There is always enough left over to take home.

We found this spot by accident while we were searching for a place on our GPS and we decided to eat there at the very next opportunity. WOW! The food is SOOOOO good! The Beef Bulgogi was the best I've ever had and the Bibimbap was so tasty that my wife says she is addicted to it! The service was courteous and VERY patient as we asked about several dishes we had never encountered before and took a very long time to settle on our choices. The waitress even gave us reliable guidance on which dishes were the restaurant's best, and boy was she right on the money! The Korean beer selection was pretty good and I had two I had never tasted before. The location is in a small corner but the experience was worth the hunt! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this spot for anyone looking for a tasty adventure... soon to become a regular stop!

Don't be put off by this restaurant's location in a tacky strip shopping center and in an unattractive part of Roanoke. The restaurant is located in the far corner of the center. It is pleasant and clean. The food was very good and the service was top notch. Our waitress was very friendly. We have eaten at most of the best Korean restaurants in NYC, and Wonju would hold its own with them.
