I almost don't want to review this restaurant because it's such a hidden gem. That said, you will have to get over the strip mall surroundings and plain interior. Also, the prices are a little high. But the food is worth it! Pork bulgogi was my favorite. It's nice to know there's a good Korean place in town.

Five of us went to Seoul Garden for dinner. We had one picky eater in the group who ordered Tempura. The rest of us enjoyed the little bowls of appetizers as we tried each one and tried, in some cases to determine what it was! We ordered and shared the Haemool Pajun pancake and Bibimbap, both of which were delicious.... More

OK, this place is a bit out of the way but you will be grateful if you go. Of course, Raleigh is not a hotbed of Korean food but I've been to Korean BBQ in many states and Seoul Garden is in m top 5 in the country. What it lacks in atmosphere it makes up for in consistently great... More

Unfortunately the Korean restaurant food quality in the Triangle is nothing like NYC but Seoul Garden is good. Their food is clean, flavorful, on target. It is not glorious but of what is available in the area, it is the best I've had. Worth trying!

Just finished taking my brother to celebrate his birthday. Seven of us with 3 kids. Everyone was pleased. Service was delightful, food scrumptious.

Listen, if you go to an American restaurant that is known for its burgers, you expect the basic hamburger toppings to be available: Lettuce, tomatos, onions, cheese, pickles and ketchup. Everything after that is unique to the restaurant, but the basics have to be there or you're not in America. So when I go to a Korean restaurant, I expect... More

Many types of kimchee. I got the beef Bimi bap. It was good but the beef was not the quality I would expect for what I paid. Good Korean food. They have the authentic BBQ tables but you will need several people to order the BBQ, they have a minimum order.

Seoul Garden was recommended to me by one of the employees at a hotel I was staying at when I made an off-hand comment about craving Korean food. I ate here with 11 people and they had no problem accomodating us. Restaurant was probably 3/4 full at the time. My only experiences with Korean food have either been outside Army... More

This is the only Korean restaurant I know in Raleigh. The price is fair, could be pricey if you do BBQ. The food is great and my favorite is the Galbi for BBQ and sulung tang. I regularly come and the service is above average.

We read about this excellent restaurant in the local paper where it was reviewed by food critic Greg Cox. Three of us went and had a truly wonderful lunch. We started with a kimchee pancake which was crisp and delicious, then had three entrees -- my favorite was one with spicy sausages but all were delicious. The waiter was very... More
