My boyfriend and I had our first taste of korean food at miran. The chicken dolsot bibim bap was out of this world! I ordered a spicy squid dish which was a bit too spicy for my taste, but was delicious! We also ordered the vegetarian steamed dumplings as an appetizer - they were really good. Prices were fair and service was pretty good. There are bbq pits in all of the tables...pretty neat, but beware that if you order bbq for your dinner, they will bring you raw food and you'll have to cook it yourself at your table. Overall, we will definitely be going here frequently!

I ordered 3 dol sol bim bim bol today. They were supposed to be spicy pork. But only two thin slices of porks are in the 3 bowls. Totally cheating! This is the 2nd time this kind of thing at Miran happened to me!

My husband and I lived in Korea for a year teaching English, and having moved back to the States, had a craving for our old "comfort Korean food." We couldn't have been more impressed! The food is seriously authentic... we enjoyed the steamed dumplings (mandoo in Korean language), delicious kimchi and side dishes that come with every meal, slow-cooked beef with vegetables, and /bim-mim-bop/ (rice dish with veggies, egg, and rice). The owner was exceptionally nice and the restaurant was packed, even on a hot, humid, raining summer night. We will certainly be returning here to enjoy authentic Korean food as we had in Korea and we encourage you to do the same!

I went here with my two kids-- four and one year old and my brothers and sisters, some of whom had never had Korean food. I had to blow out early because the kids went craz, but the food was as good as any Korean I've had in the States. This is by far the best Korean food I have had in Philadelphia. The bbq was delicious, although there was no guidance whatsoever which because I was the only non-novice, was a little bit bad. And we needed a little bit more room, but that's okay too. The dolsot bi-bimbap was very delicious, as was the kalbi. Skip the dumplings though-- they were soggy.

I am used to 32nd st NYC, but in the past few wks, I've been to 5 different Korean places in Philly - Han Wool, Pastoral, Giwa, Miran, and one other place. Miran was the best. Ordered kalbi (marinated short ribs), hae mool jungol (spicy seafood stew), mool mandoo (steamed dumpling), ojinguh bokeum (spicy squid stir fry), and dolsot bibimbap (rice with egg and veggies in hot stone pot). The hae mool jungol was a little too salty and the ojinguh bokeum sucked but everything else was great. My biggest complaint was that the vent for the bbq comes down in this long tube that hovers right over the grill, so you have to hold it off to the side while you flip the meat. Also, the waitress (friendly non-Korean) didn't cook it for us which they typically do at bbq places. Guess beggars can't be choosers. This is the only place that I found in the city that lets you grill at the table.

We enjoyed this small Korean restaurant. They have a basic interior and presentation. The food was excellent. They are able to barbecue at a cooking station built into your table (with a vent). The korean barbecue we ate was great. We had seafood pancakes as an appetizer, with dipping sauce. We had some kind of Korean barbecue (forget name) that was excellent. Highly recommended, partic. if you know you like Korean food.
