Great place to get Korean cuisine! Soup was not my favorite but meat was especially delicious and the dumplings. Definitely would go again.

My Sister, Niece and I were in Ucity at a function. Not wanting the food they had, we decided to venture out and across Koreana. Neither of us had Korean food before so we were excited. It's a small place, but they normally have the...More

Hole-in-the-wall BYO korean lunch/dinner place which has really great, budget food. I found this place through a friend and we go there almost every time we get together for lunch. The service is meh. They're friendly but you order at the desk and they bring...More

Uncomplicated, you are always greeted in a very friendly, welcome manner by the owner. Vegetarians and vegans are catered to very nicely according to my friends. The Dolsot Bibimpap hits the spot. I once had the Kimchi Jigae and remember it wasn't the best I'd...More

This restaurant has a huge selection -- around 30 dishes or so -- and nearly all of them are priced under $9 for a huge helping. The servings are really overwhelming in size but so delicious that you still manage to eat them all. The...More
