Fast and good

I have never eaten Korean food before, so if this is the standard I am impressed. The staff was very professional and the servings were large. I will definitely go again.

Good tasty food. The chef will modify the food and make it non spicy when it is originally spicy. Love most of the small appetizers, which is like bread in non Asian restaurant, and brought out before the entree and is included as part of the meal. Good service. I have ordered both dining in and take out.

We did not eat at the restaurant. We called to order and my husband went to pick up the food. The shrimp fried rice and seafood pancake were delicious. The seasoned fried chicken was also delicious but I was expecting it to be spicy as in the menu description. The food was a little pricey but well worth it since... More

We have been coming here for many years. There seemed to have been different managers or chefs over that time and you could see (portion size) and taste the changes. We are glad to report the portions are great and the food tastes great too. If you want a change from the typical food served in Gainesville take the drive... More

We went to Garlic and Ginger for the first time since Dragonfly was not open. The atmosphere was not the best, but the taste made up for the dark and old room. We shared spicy beef noodle soup, which was quite good with ginger and spicy flavors. The two rolls were fresh and flavorful. Our server was new, but attended... More

We found this through TA recommendations and are so glad we did. Outstanding for both the meat eater (me) and the vegetarian (my wife). We started with some steamed dumplings that tasted like they were freshly made. Just outstanding flavor and stuffing. I went with the short ribs for the main course and they were sliced incredibly thin and seasoned... More

The food was quite good. If you are an american who is trying korean food for the first time be prepared for completely different taste than your accustomed to. Korean food that is authentic as this one is not like your typical chinese food. It has different flavors and and is not fried rice and general tsaos chicken. If you... More

Food was very good. We ordered two plates to share and it was plenty. Our seafood platter was too spicy even though I like spicy food. Service was great. Will definitely go back.

We have eaten Koren food in the past yet it's been a while. The server was patient and informative. Our meal was beyond our expectations and that's hard to do with 2 teenagers

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
