This is the review for Seoul Garden from the Guide. I have visited this resturant and the food is excellent. The service is a little slow by American standards, but is does not ruin the experience.
This is a must visit for anyone who likes Korean food.
Any fan of ethnic cuisine ought to dine here at least once. If you bring a group, order the $35 deluxe jeong sik. The meal, meant for two but ample for four, features about 30 small plates of nearly every Korean foodstuff imaginable. Pancakes. Steamed king crab legs. Bean sprouts. Radish. Squash. Tiny eggplant. Tofu. Kimchi. Bul go gi (barbecued rib-eye). Oysters. Broiled mackerel. Baby eels. Some things we didn't recognize. It's a marvelous experience.
All sorts of hot pots, a more recognizable dish for Americans, are offered here. Most, though, feature seafood. Haemul jun gol was a mix of shrimp, crab and other shellfish with vegetables in a spicy broth. Good stuff.
Dinners can get pricey, but lunch is a genuine bargain. Man doo gui brings more than a dozen fried dumplings containing a mixture of vegetables and beef to the table. Or order one of the exotic- sounding soup or noodle dishes; our server guided us to bi bim naeng myun, tiny buckwheat noodles tangled in a red-hot sauce. She had to cut them with scissors to make them manageable with chopsticks.
Note: Finding Seoul Garden can be a problem: Above the door at Royal Lane and Reeder the name is in Korean only (although it its in English on the shopping center's sign).
