Really good explanation from the staff about what dishes I might like based on past experiences. Great food, and I like that you order then sit down. It's very efficient and the food is good!

Delicious food and good service. We ordered the Bulgogi and loved every bite. The Spicy Calamari was a little sweet, but none the less very tasty. The Fries with Kimchi and Cheese is a generous portion and plenty for 2 people. We will return to try other dishes.

The lunch buffet and bibimbob is to die for and is affordable for the giant amount of food you are privy to. The bibimbob (rice bowl with veggies and protein) is excellent and I have taken it to go many times. This place is so good, I daydream about it on my long commute home from work almost daily!

This evening whilst deciding where to have dinner, my partner and I settled on Green Spoon. When we walked in the door I was amazing by the atmosphere. It is like a touch of Korea/New York here in Minneapolis. The décor reminded me of some place I would dine at in Chelsey. Cutie, seated us a table and asked if... More

I needed my Korean food fix during the noon hour and found it at Green Spoon. This was my second visit and I was satisfied with our calamari, fries, mandoo and spicy chicken choices. Chix and calamari were tender and flavorful. Could be a little more spicy hot, but that’s what condiments are for. The kimchee tasted fresh and not... More

I went with a group of seven to the Green Spoon yesterday. The service is really personable, a lovely, smiling woman took our orders and answered questions. The food is wonderfully fresh. I had the green spoon salad, it was perfectly dressed with oriental dressing. Each item on the salad was perfect and attractively presented. My friend sitting next to... More

The Green Spoon has been through several iterations, with the current one the best, by far. Come here for the food: including the Asian Tofu Salad (many different greens and lightly fried tofu), a kimchi pancake, a rice based pizza, the cobb salad, ramen bowls, sweet potato fires,and - best of all - veggie dumplings (served very hot and with...

Green spoon is the best Korean restaurant in Minneapolis. There are several good things I found it there. I like to eat Ramen there. Eating Kimchi with fresh fries is the pest appetizers they have. When you order some dishes, the waiter asks you to choose between eating spicy or normal dish. Which let the customer eat what they like.... More
