This place is quite delicious!! I personally ordered the Kimchi Fries and the Rice Cakes in chili sauce (Tteok-bokki). Both dishes were really good! They have a nice selection of Korean dishes and some have a Mexican fusion to them. The Kor-Mex fusion is really...More

Coreanos Allston sucked. Who are these other reviewers giving this a 5 star rating? They shouldn't be allowed Internet access anymore. I went with a group of 3 of my friends and we ordered pretty much their menu. I think this is a fair sampling...More

I was in Allson this afternoon and decided to sample a few of the divey restaurants there. This is a really humble place but the tacos are outstanding. I tried their spicy pork and sweet bulgogi beef tacos. Both were outstanding. I personally preferred the...More

I was pleasantly surprised by this place. The fusion makes sense, and they start from a solid base of just having pretty good Korean food. The tacos and Mexican additions to Korean favorites make sense. We enjoyed the tacos, Tteokbokki and fried rice. My only...More

Who would have thought this hole in the wall Korean Mexican restaurant would be amazing. Savory and tasty. Limited seating. The best in Boston and beyond!

The tacos are flavorful, spicy, and all around perfect. This is not a sit down place. The food is all very good.

Note: This review is for delivery. Coreanos is simply so-so. But, it could easily be a lot better if they start using better quality meat. Maybe I got unlucky or caught them on a bad day, but my chicken taco was pretty gristly, as was...More

I ate here only once and was so impressed with their food. They have some very creative fusion tacos as well as very classical Korean snacks such as Ttokbokki. I highly recommend you try everything!
