There are many choices for dinners, we choose the buffet of meats, seafood and vegetables to barbecue at your table. The quality of the food was first rate and the service matched. This were our first visit, but will not be our last.

The food is all delicious and making the food yourself on the little grill a lot of fun. I went with my two daughters and we had an absolute blast not to mention loved the great food. The server did an excellent job taking us through the process. We WILL be back!!

This is amazing! I frequent here a few times each month. I have had several items off the menu and each one is outstanding! The service is always welcoming, prompt, kind, and attentive. The food from here is always fresh. This is one of the many places that is a must see and eat in Lexington.

Though I cannot comment on the food because we left before we were serve. We drove 1 hr from Somerville to go to this restaurant. We had 4 adults and two very small child. From the moment we walked in I felt as if we were not wanted. I personally lived in Korea for over 30 years. I speak the... More

Real Korean BBQ that you cook at the table. Food was wonderful and the atmosphere was great. On a busy night you should be patient but it is worth it. It is tucked in behind some chain places in a non descript building next to a furniture store. It was definitely worth the search.

We ordered BBQ and cold noodle soup. You pick anything from buffet table and bring to the table cook top and cook by your self. It was yummy, and cold noodle soup was very tasty. It come with small dishes of Korean pickles those were very good. Two of us the price was about $40 which is not so bad.

Arirang Garden is always a delight, from it's incredible REAL homemade soup to any of the other fresh offerings on their buffet. In fact I rate it as the best buffet in all of Lexington, and when I'm in the US I eat here weekly for lunch. Ordering off the menu is adventurous if you go beyond the meat for... More

I was introduced to this restaurant in 2005 and LOVED it! The portion sizes are great, the BBQ is seasoned perfectly and all the sides are delicious. I moved to Washington DC in 2007 and expected to discover Korean food that was just as good (if not better) due to the large Korean population but I still have not found... More

Good Korean food. The service was nice. I visited this restaurant for the first time recently. We were here over the lunch hour. The buffet was fairly small with a somewhat limited variety of foods. In my opinion, the food that was on the buffet was well prepared, fresh, tasty and of very good quality. I felt that we were... More

Two of my Korean friends invited me to Arirang Garden for dinner. I was looking forward to expanding my horizons and was glad to have someone with me that knew the owners and spoke Korean. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and food! We enjoyed the Yook Gye Jang soup (a little spicy, but very tasty) and Kimchee Pajun to get... More
