The sushi barKrist's Review:
I don't want to spend too much time dwelling on the strip mall topic again, but here was my first experience with a Korean restaurant and it happened to be in a strip mall. This always seems to influence the interior décor to some extent, and it did somewhat here also. They try to hide it very well with lots of bright paint and a number of tapestries hanging on the walls. I still wasn't fooled into believing that I wasn't in a strip mall. Nevertheless, we sat the whole time at the bar, where we both ate and imbibed alcohol. The bartender mixed up one strong LIT, which isn't to say that it was bad, but rather that it was strong enough that it needed to be sipped. Jazz was being played on the stereo the whole time, but was offset by Monday night programming on NBC on the tv above the bar. Koreana is nonsmoking, which keeps the air fresh and the smell of the food in the air. As mentioned earlier, this was my first experience with Korean food, and also my first experience with sushi, so I don't really have anything to compare it to, but Dave seems to really enjoy their food. This isn't, of course, your typical drinking establishment, so don't come here expecting to drink heavily on the cheap, but if you want to drink and eat Korean food, I guess this is the place to be.

You're on the lookout for fine Korean food in Appleton.

You're looking for a place to get hammered.
