“One of Yakima's Best Kept Secrets!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

I found Joy Garden Korean BBQ Restaurant about a year and a half ago and have tried nearly everything on this restaurant's menu. Every item has been a pleasant surprise. My favorites include the stir fried calamari, the beef and pork Bulgogi, the chilled spicy noodles, and the fresh mackerel. I also like the Cham Pong (a seafood noodle dish), and Joy Garden's BBQ salad is out of this world.

The service there is quick and very friendly. You feel at home there. The owner and chef, Jane Kim, has a master's degree in family nutrition and this shows in the care taken in preparing the delicious dishes at Joy Garden. The food served there is always fresh. Chef Jane makes her stuff from scratch and you can taste the difference. Korean food is quite unique and a refreshing change. It is very tasty and very healthy.

I feel we are so fortunate to have this restaurant here in Yakima. You would have to go hundreds of miles to find a similar restaurant were Joy Garden not here. Unfortunately it is not well-advertised and owning to the lack of a street-facing sign, a bit hard to find. If you ever stop in and try some of the delicious dishes at Joy Garden I think you'll be pleasantly surprise as I was.

Joy Garden Korean BBQ Restaurant is truly an exceptional dining experience.

We have been here a number of times and the food is usually very delicious. We like the squid and also the grilled mackerel. Try something new each time and you will usually leave very happy! Urbanspoon has their approval rated at 98%!!!!!!
