I heard from many people that this restaurant is great and really tasty, but I don't understand why... It isn't anything special. The taste is very common. The cold noodle was one of the baddest I ever had in a restaurant. Their special called Gingiskhan is famous, but I also have tried it, and can't see anything special about it.... More

It was next to our Hotel, we hadn't had Korean bar b que in a while so we decided to give it a try. The food was of excellent quality but very short quantity and the dining room section we were in was no wider than a public bus - it felt odd. It is obviously a "neighborhood" restaurant as... More

I've stayed in a nearby hotel twice during the past month. Both times, I visited Seoul Gardens. They have excellent and very authentic Korean food. I can't get past their bimbambop clay bowl-- veggies, egg on top of rice. So yummy. If you chose one of the main dinner items, the waiters will cook it in front of you. I... More

Ordered one barbecued chicken dinner and an extra bowl of rice which was plenty for two of us. Excellent service and most reasonable price. Others around us had the bug meat platters and most of them were clearly Koreans.

This restaurant was next to the Hotel we were staying for an event at the Staples center. Because we didn't feel like driving anywhere anymore we just figured let's try this Korean food place, it got a good review from the hotel staff. Nor me and wife ever had Korean food. The restaurant is nothing fancy and our waiter although... More

The food was excellent. Very close to where we stayed. Alittle expensive, but very good. Fast service.

We searched this place out yesterday. Caught a train to MacArthur Park then a 10m walk. It was worth the effort. Really great food served all the usual side dishes including kimchi . Owned by Koreans and supported by Koreans. If you like Korean Food this is a must.

The food is pretty good here. I enjoyed every bite. Came here on a Sunday night and it was pretty empty. The service is pretty slow though. Price is on point and there's valet parking available in their parking lot.

My brother and I were visiting LA for the first time and we are both big into Asian cuisine. We are from Maine so Asian influence there is your basic American Chinese restaurants so having this authentic Korean joint next to our hotel was unique, actually we didn't even realize we were in Korea town. The prices look scary at... More

We went here as a couple with four Chinese friends. They touted this as the best Korean barbecue in Koreatown, and, although we are certainly no experts on Korean foods, we certainly thought it was quite good. We had both marinated beef barbecue and hotpot. The quality of the meats was pretty high, and the sauces were excellent. Spice level... More
