Good vegan options, but...

Stopped here while passing through the area. On the menu, it states under the vegan or veganizable options "we understand vegan."

Sadly this did not hold true for their order takers/cashier. We told them we wanted to order the tofu bulgogi, bibimap, sushi and sweet potatoes listed under the vegan menu section. They then asked us: 1) did we want crabmeat with our sushi; 2) did we want egg with the noodles, and 3) did we want to take some side salad that had mayo. To be fair, the owner/manager intervened and apologized profusely.

The food itself was good, especially the noodles and kimchi.

Pros: Reasonable prices, Tasty entrees

Cons: Vegan related confusion

Seoul good for soul!

I would give Joomi and her staff five stars if I could! They are very conscientious when preparing not only their vegan and vegetarian foods, but the gluten-free ones as well! Being able to find gluten-free vegan is a rarity here, so I appreciate the choices Seoul offers. Highly recommend the vegan Gimbab, pancake sampler, and vegan ramen.

Pros: Designated vegan and vegetarian options., Affordable food and friendly staff., Gluten-free accommodating.

Great Vegan Stop

I’m in Salina for a conference and was thrilled to find this little spot based on Happy Cow reviews. I had the buffet which was fits right into the vegan diet. They will also fry you vegetable dumplings if you ask them. Kimchi was great!

Pros: Great vegan options , Employees are knowledgeable about ingredients , Buffet was great

Cons: Don’t be deceived by the outside.

A hidden surprise in Kansas

It was a very nice restaurant. Like a previous review stated, do not let the outside deter you. The staff is very friendly and very good about clarifying the ingredients. Oh and the food was great too!

Pros: A lot of vegetable options.

Kansas is a food desert for vegans so this was a welcome oasis. Friendly staff, several choices, and tasty food!

Great menu with lots of vegan options that are clearly marked.

Reasonable prices and super friendly service. Was the perfect vegan lunch on a cross-country road trip.

No Masks

I wish I could say this food was great, but I never got to eat it. We drove out of our way to go here but when we arrived none of the four people working there were wearing masks. Salina is having a major covid problem and they can’t even be bothered to wear a mask or open a window. Ridiculous.

Hidden gem in Midwest for Vegan options

Cant praise this place enough. The personable service and fantastic food was well worth the hour drive.
Don't hesitate to ask about what the vegan options are. They were happy to go over them with us! Can't wait to go back 😊

Pros: Several dishes that can be made vegan.

Not today

Drove an hour based on Facebook and status here to be told they were out of all tofu and kimchi. Could not offer any vegan substitutes.

Variety of Vegan options

I really enjoy the Korean food at Seoul USA in Salina. I would describe this place as home style Korean food (this isn't Korean bbq). They have a nice (and varied) selection of Vegan and Vegitarian items, The kitchen is open and everything is prepared fresh and made to order. They aren't fast food however you do order at the counter and food comes out at a quick and steady pace. The Tofu Bulgogi and Tofu Bibimbab & Hot Stone are really good the soups are amazing. They have multiple vegan appetizer options (Mung Bean pancakes are amazing). Great place to go with Vegan and non-vegan friends.

Pros: Multiple entree & Appetizer options, Open kitchen, Value is excellent/Portions extremely generous

Cons: Request seperate utensil for food prep (no issue)

Awesome find in Kansas!

As vegan choices are far and few between in this part of Kansas, I was thrilled to fine this gem. Staff was very knowledgeable in what was vegan. Entree came with 2 sides that were vegan, a cucumber kimchi and a mung bean sprout salad. Very reasonably priced. Authentic too. I will be back!

Pros: Good value, Friendly, knowledgeable service, Delicious

Cons: Don’t let the outside fool you, very clean inside
