Well, since this has been my favorite Grand Rapids restaurant for 30 years, I should at least review it. Lunches and dinners are excellent. My own favorite is the Mandarin Chicken. My wife is a fan of be bim bop, which she orders whenever we are in a Korean restaurant. She likes Seoul... read more

Went with a friend to lunch. Never had been to this restaurant. Found it very elegant setting and the food and service were the best. To top it all off - thebilly for lunch was under $20 for two very hungry people. Will definitely be going back to this place.

My boyfriend and I went to Grand Rapids for a concert in June 2014. Before leaving for our mini vacay from SSM, ontario Canada, I researched Korean restaurants in Grand Rapids. Then I found Seoul Garden Restaurant. Once we arrived in Grand Rapids, we went there for dinner. The staff was very friendly and professional. We were seated at a... More

We swung in for lunch, after marginal sushi at another area restaurant the week before. We picked Seoul on rating and proximity alone. That being said, we were very impressed. We had 5 rolls (through lunch combos and one a la cart) and a nigiri lunch assortment. The rolls were good, and the pieces of hosomaki were plentiful enough to... More

The food is great and the setting very pretty but the customer service is above and beyond! I hosted two bridal showers there and am always proud to bring my guests here! This is a true gem of a place and the owners make you feel very welcome!

If you're ever in Grand Rapids, you won't want to miss the Seoul Garden. In fact, if you like Korean and/or Japanese cuisine, it's worth the trip just to eat there. The sushi menu is awesome, but I personally go for the Korean food, especially the Jam Bong, which is by far the best I've ever had. The staff are... More

We had a new dish at Seoul Garden, Bi Bim Bop! It was so very good and met our 'difficult' requests of gluten free and vegetarian. It was wonderful! And here's the thing, the owners are such wonderful people. They go out of their way to insure that you get what you want, to make recommendations for your particular tastes... More
