Walking distance from our hotel, and surprisingly busy for an early mid week night. Food, and service very good, although have had better Korean food. Keenly priced and will visit again if in the area.

I went with my dad and girlfriend as we'd been keen to try Korean food for a while and heard good things about this place. The food was great, I had beef bulgogi which was delicious, as well as the meat dumplings to start and some kimchi. The staff were also very helpful, especially when it came to the method... More

So my work colleagues and I placed a lunch time order, I went for the noodles and beef. Loved it so much expect the extra extra onions 🙄 gave me that onion breathe. Will have to opt out next time 😄

I've been to a couple of Korean places before but by far this one felt very high quality. We did want to go to eatgoody which was another Korean place but more student friendly but we couldn't go because it was closed but I'm glad we missed out on that and came here instead! Location wise it was quite tricky... More

I came here with my husband after work on a Wednesday afternoon. We both had a beef dish and it was really good! The waitresses were really friendly and checked up on us often and were very attentive. I would definitely recommend eating here!

I visited Koreana a number of times when staying in Manchester with work in 2009. When I was required to attend a training course in Manchester, I had no hesitiation in recommending this to my colleague as our option for our evening meal. The restaurant has a unique charm that hadn't diminished in the 7yrs between visits - all of... More

Visited here for the second time yesterday evening. We ordered sharing plates and main courses. We should have asked for the sharing plates to be brought out sooner as they only arrived shortly before the mains. That was my only criticism. Had the Seafood Bulgogi with sticky rice which was very tasty. You have the option to cook it at... More

Three of us visited Koreana on a Thursday evening around 8pm and we took the last available table. We ordered 3 starters and we each chose a meat to cook at our table at the BBQ. We were given the option to have it cooked for us but thought it would be a novelty to try it ourselves. For starter... More

Was looking forwards to visiting here after watching Jamie's superfoods. We had ribs, chicken wings and cod fritters for starters. Ribs were very dry and tough. This theme continued with the three main BBQ meals. The duck was dry and tiny pieces. The belly pork was really thin and resembled bacon. I was expecting a juicy thick piece. The beef... More
