Located between Central and Inman Squares, Koreana is a favorite among the many area students and local Asian-American families. Koreana features a delicious bulgogi (flavorful thin sliced beef), crispy scallion & oyster pancakes, and excellent sushi/sashimi too. The venue has a comfortable, chic ambience.

On weekdays, between 11:30am to 2:30pm, there's a bargain lunch box special: salad, bulgogi, dumpling and sushi for about $8.

Sun-Thu 11:30am-10:30pm

1-starMediocre Food Horrible Service
I am Korean, so I know what i'm talking about. I don't know what restaurant everyone else went to but Koreana is definitely not the best in Boston. The food here is typically Americanized, portions are small, and the side dishes rarely fresh. There is no way you can even pretend that its like mom makes. Its also very expensive even for Korean food. The only good things they do here are kimchee tchigae and sushi. And I only recommend that if you're going to call ahead for take out. The service at the restaurant is HORRIBLE no matter what time of day you go, weekend or weekday. They are elitest or something. Whenever I go with a mixed group we see our waitress only to take our order and bring us our check. I've been there many times with a mixed group of friends only to be snubbed the entire evening. The last time I went was the last straw, it wasn't a busy night there were 4 servers and 4 or 5 people in the restaurant total. Me and my friends were ignored pretty much the whole meal where the 2 korean guys right next to us had 2 different servers checking on them every couple minutes. Needless to say the whole experience was garbage. I will never go to Koreana again and everyone save yourself the trouble and don't even try it. If you want good Korean go to Buk Kyoung in Union Square Somerville. Not the Allston branch. The Somerville one. This is the best food quality and price around.
