Koreana's unassuming entrance leads to a subterranean dining area offering a wealth of gastronomic delight. When we visited this Korean food haven, much of the clientele were Asian - surely a sign of the culinary authenticity and quality we could expect to find here. We were not disappointed - the interesting menu introduced us to exotic cooking styles such as bulgogi, a form of flame-grilled meat and seafood marinade, and we chose from an excellent value set menu, which offers two courses for £9.90 from Monday to Friday. The seafood haemool twigim proffered a generous portion of battered morsels of prawns, squid and the like, given a tangy edge by chilli and soy dips. We tucked into beef dumplings that were surprisingly light, filled with a mixture of well-seasoned beef and vegetables, and tried the dolsot bibimbab - rice, meat and vegetables combined at your table with as much chilli as you desire, resulting in a tasty stirfry that is full of seriously fresh flavours. The menu also throws up some appealing soups and braised dishes - with sushi to boot - and we were pleasantly surprised by the sizes of the portions. With house wine at £8.95 a bottle and the Korean beer Hite, just £2.25, Koreana makes for a cosy romantic meal or a vibrant evening out with friends. International cuisine this good, and so close to home, deserves your attention.
