I loved this restaurant! The food and atmosphere is fantastic! It had a lot of pros and a few cons. We dined on a Wednesday evening, and the restaurant was busy but not extremely full. They have tables indoors and outdoors, so we decided to eat outdoors and it was nice. The restaurant is fairly small and it is a... More

Koriente is a unique little bistro tucked away near a homeless shelter in downtown Austin, but a bit of planning (like travel in a pack and during daylight) is all it takes to enjoy one of the better, more distinctive Asian meals we've had in a while. Upon entering, patrons place their orders and pay, then self-seat and wait for... More

Small place with good variety of plates, japchei with avocado and shrimp was really good. A good place to go.

I was nervous about getting a raw bowl and how flavorful it would be. I was wrong, it was amazing. I got the tofu and added broccoli and it was perfect. The vegan miso soup that was served for free was very good too! I would go back again and again.

Ok so the way down to the restaurant may seem to be a bit scary for some cause it's nearby a homeless shelter + big chance that you have to wait 10-15 minutes in line ... but the food and service are amazing! The portions are delish and big and they serve you the food really quick. Recommendations are the... More

Great taste once I spiced it up with special Serrano pepper sauce. Also ordered vegetarian roll w taro paper. Fantastic taste. Additionally we also ordered Japche w noodles. Overall family enjoyed the brunch/lunch. In... More

Spicy chicken I ordered was very good with avocado added on top. I had a bite of Mahimahi bowl a friend ordered which was good as well. Comes with salad and miso soup for lunch.

Food was pretty solider. I got some kind of beef dish with rice cakes (rice flour "dumplings" with consistency of gnocchi). It was good. Wifey got veggie diy hand rolls. Buncha raw vegs and some nori. Perfect for her. Free (vegetarian) miso soup. They forgot the pickles I ordered, but I didn't bring it up. Staff was friendly. Would go... More

So once we got there, this place was really great! All the wonderful reviews are exactly accurate. Wait staff are super friendly and helpful. Food is in more than adequate portions and very flavorful.

Large portions, fast service, great food, varied options. You can choose whether to eat inside or outside. The only inconvenience was finding a parking place.
