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

We work nearby and decided we to try this place. It's not on street level and the decor is a little dated but the service was warm and friendly. We opted for the business lunch and one colleague tried the set menu. The starters of vegetable dumplings were tasty, chicken skewers were a tad bland. I tried the bento box... More

Tried this place on a recommendation from a friend and was pleasantly surprised the food was tasty and not to expensive. A little bit different and a friendly relaxed atmosphere.

You need to book here, a week in advanced should be ok. We went for the banquet which cost £20.50 a head and is for a minimum of 2 people. I had the spare rinse the chicken skewers and beef bulgogi and a Korean rice cake with fig and walnuts in it. It came with vanilla ice cream. The beef... More
