    There is one on Midlothian Turnpike just west of Chippenham Parkway in a shopping center near an Arby's.

      Thank you! Do you happen to know what the name of the restaurant is? And is it any good?

        I have no idea if it's any good but let me see if I can find the name of it.....it's called Young Bin Kwan, 675-0511, 7437-B Midlothian Tpke.

          I found this review of it for what it's worth http://www.fanpop.com/external/1355719

      I heard of a place in South Side called 88 Garden that's supposed to be good, but I haven't tried it yet!

        There's also Mama's Kitchen near the corner of Grace and Harrison. It's small and caters to the VCU students. It's not the greatest but it's about all there is on this side of the river.

        We've been to both Young Bin Kwan and Momma's Kitchen. Neither are up to LA or even No. Va. standards, but they're decent and satisfying when you want Korean food. Momma's Kitchen is more comfort food (e.g., bim bim bop) and Young Bin Kwan has Korean BBQ.
