We returned to Sam Won Garden after 15 years! It as delicious as we remembered. Spicy Pork, Grilled Korean Shrimp and dumpling appetizers were the headliners of the show. BUT the side dishes served family style were the stars. Seriously good stuff refilled as desired. Piles of delicious food served by friendly staff had me planning our next visit before we had even gone.

I've been to Sam Won Garden twice now since I discovered it two weeks ago. Even though I live an hour away, my husband and I are making it a point to go here at least once every pay period. Their food is just simply amazing. Hot, fresh, authentic Korean yumyums. Their kimchi is a completely different story though... because it is LIFE CHANGING. Their japchae is also delicious. 감사합니다~

While looking for a new restaurant to explore, we came upon Sam Won. As we walked in, we noted the comfortable atmosphere. We were greeted as if we were old friends .After sitting down and looking at the menu, we turned to the couple next to us and asked for their recommendations .We are Korean food virgins, but they had been to several Korean restaurants in Jacksonville, and thought this was by far the best. We settled on a shared BBQ combination for two that was out of this world .Our server was very helpful in helping us determine which dishes to try. We absolutely loved them all. There are some tables where you can grill your own food, which looked pretty cool.
The prices were moderate, but quite reasonable for the quality and quantity of the food presented. You can have the spice level adjusted to your liking. We left there thinking of which dishes we will try when we go back .Do not miss this place if you are in the mood for a culinary adventure!
