Wow, I can't believe I'm writing the first review for this place in 2014! Long overdue I think. Garlic & Ginger has quality Korean food in an unexpected location considering that Gainesville is a smaller city(albeit a college town). The location is convenient if traveling on I-75. It's a good option if you need a big city dining experience when... More

Recently returned to Garlic & Ginger with friends of mine, and once again I was not disappointed. Everything is very authentic. We got four different entrees and shared with one another. This time it was beef bulgogi, a soup made with beef and scallions, the baby octopus dinner, and the beef intestines dinner. The waitress double checked with my friend... More

My friend and I ate here on a Tuesday night, at around 8:30 pm. There were only two other customers at the time, which made us worried as sometimes a slow restaurant isn't a great restaurant. However, that turned out not to be the case! Great Korean food with an extensive menu, excellent service, good Soju. There are many vegetarian... More

I like Korean food and I have actually travelled to Korea a few times and enjoyed the local food in Seoul a lot. I had lunch with my colleagues and friends at Garlic and Ginger in Gainesville and I was very pleasantly surprised. The food quality was good, tasted just like in Korea and I really enjoyed that. Usually the... More

I'm a Korean. There are several restaurants that serve Korean dishes in Gainesville, but this place has the most authentic Korean dishes without question. The lunch menu is very affordable ($6-$10 most) and dinner portion is huge. I highly recommend this place if you want to try out what Korean food is like.

Serve good quality korean food. Like tofu pot. A little bit salty though. Usually they serve a kind of korean soup made of ginger and rice after your meal, remember to ask for it.

I don't know what to say. We were 4 people all ordering different things and none of us was pleased with the food. Taste, texture, etc. none was to our liking. The appetizers were not good either. Only thing we liked was the soda, so that should tell you...

We visited Garlic and Ginger a handful of times while living nearby. The food quality is decent, and particularly exceeded our expectations for being in a strip mall in northern Florida. The bi bim bap was delicious, as was the chapchae. Both were on par with Korean food we have had in Seoul, New York and Vancouver. The prices are... More

This was my first time trying Korean food, so I can not comment on the authenticity. I went alone and had the bulgogi beef lunch platter that came with rice and about seven other things that I wasn't really sure what it was. Miso soup, a salad, a corn salad, a clear rice noodle dish, some sort of steamed wontons,... More

If you are in town and love Korean food or just want to try something different this is truly as authentic as it gets. After spending a couple of years in Korea, I crave it! Garlic and Ginger rivals the Korean restaurants in San Francisco and NYC. If you like spicy I would recommend getting the kimchi jigae, it is... More
