This is really good Korean BBQ, great big portions, staff are really great and super friendly people. The place is clean and I tried some of their sushi and it is very good as well.

Had a great noddle dish with chicken and vegetables. The condiments were really good as well. I enjoyed the daikon and the cucumbers. I had a salad with my dinner that was really good. I will definitely eat there again.

Have you ever gone to a restaurant and wanted to try several things on the menu but knew you couldn't eat the equivalent of multiple meals in one sitting? Me too! That's why I love friends who love to order family style. Eight of us decided to eat a late dinner one night and chose Joy Garden. They stayed open... More

I tried this restaurant for the first time last week and was quite surprised to learn that I like Korean food (having never tried it before). Had the BiBimBap and loved it. Very refreshing in the summer. My only complaint, was the uncomfortable booths. Both sides had to sit on the edge of the bench to reach the table. I... More

Wow! Very nice casual Korean restaurant with a taste of home cooking. I had the DolSot BiBimBap, it was piled with veggies and meat on a bed of rice. Portion was ample and delicious! Definitely plan to return and highly recommend.

Joy Garden offers many dishes more authentically Korean than others in the area. They are delicious - and I hope enough patrons in this area keep coming to maintain their authenticity. Some restaurants reduced to be American "teriyaki" places - not authentic! I also love the little vegetable dishes that come with entrees.

Delicious food. Had their spicy soup. Warning, it is spicy. Scale of 1-10 it's a 7. You still taste the food but it will make you sweat. Your lips will be firey. You won't burn your throat. Very nice people. Clean. Fairly quick service.

Better than the average Yakima restaurant, but if you're used to Korean from the west side you will probably be disappointed. Decent Bulgogi and noodle dishes, but very few vegetarian options. One of the few takeout options around

Unique dishes, very yummy. The waitstaff and chefs are very patient and accommodating--even with my picky kids, who generally won't eat anything but pizza or chicken nuggets. We can find something they'll eat here, and it may just be good for them!
