After returning from a two year mission trip for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I went straight to Seoul Garden with my family. I became fluent in the language and I wanted to treat my family to traditional Korean food. Seoul Garden is very authentic and traditional. The only thing different is they use jalapeno peppers opposed to the red peppers (고추) used in Korea to add spice. You will have a unique experience at Seoul Garden because the servers and owner are straight from Korea. They are still used to Korean culture, and are still learning American culture. So they will not act like the servers at TGI Fridays, or some place like that. I was the only exception during the summer of '09, the only white guy working there. Great people, great food, and if you are ready to try something new, I strongly suggest that you go to Seoul Garden

Even though this is a little bit of a drive for me, Seoul Garden is my current favorite place for Korean food. I've tried the al tang, soon doo boo, and kalbi tang here. Have never been disappointed.
Having been there so many times, the only thing is the service is inconsistent. The soon doo boo used to be served with a raw egg that you crack yourself, but no more. The meal used to end with shike, but no more. In the case with food service at restaurants, I'm not sure ""it's better to have had and lost than to never have had at all"" applies. With that being said, still love what I get there.

I'm half Korean and this is my second favorite place to eat Korean. Cho Sun Ok is my favorite place but if it's a special occasion or if I am taking someone to eat Korean for the first time, I choose Seoul Garden. Their barbecue will seem very expensive but you get a ton of side dishes, rice and hot barley tea in the deal. It's a fun place to take friends and drink. The barbecue dishes are great with alcohol. Try Hite Korean beer - it's dry and crisp.

I ADORE Korean food, and I was thrilled with Seoul Garden. I recommend reserving a table with a tabletop barbeque (you probably need a party of at least 4 to do this) and cooking your food at your table. My kids love this place, although I wouldn't recommend letting little kids cook their own food! Good service, even at peak times, who will refill your salad dishes, which come free with your meal. These side dishes can vary, and might be a little ""challenging"" for the average American palate, but they are always delicious. I recommend the beef shortribs BBQ, but every dish we've cooked at our table has been outstanding. The clientele is mostly Korean, as far as I've seen, which just confirms for me what my taste buds say about the quality and authenticity of the food. The decor is nothing exciting, but the restaurant is clean and open. I recommend this restaurant for families who want to expand their children's palates! They think cooking their own food is so great, they probably won't complain that it's not McDonalds.

I wouldn't go anywhere else in the area for Korean food, pretty much evey dish we had there has been really good. I've had korean at many places, its definitely good, no idea what the guy saying the kalbi is bland is talking about, my inlaws are korean and they really dig the place. He says it right in the first paragraph, that place is where you find the asian people, and that is all you need to know.

We love eating at Seoul Garden. The service is good, the place is clean, and the food is fantastic. Their prices are also very reasonable and there is always a good mix of people eating there. So far, this is the best Korean place I've been to in the Triangle.
