...to quote one of my best friends. It's Korean BBQ. Which means that you're barbecuing on a grill at your table. If you're squeamish about that, then you should forget about this place and hit the Del Taco that's conveniently located in the parking lot. For everyone else, let's go to the Man With No Name (although in this movie... More

So it's not going to be the best Korean place you've been to, but when is an All you can eat Buffet the best food you've eaten? It's a ton of fun to go here with a group and the meat selection is plenty. The Miso Pork Belly, BBQ beef and spicy pork were my favorites. There was about 8-10... More

My family discovered Seoul Garden BBQ Buffet by accident about 5 years ago! We were looking for a Korean BBQ in our area and searched that topic on the computer. Up came this restaurant on Red Hill in Tustin, which was not too far from our house. We decided to give it a try……. Needless to say, that was about... More

Always fresh meats, fresh vegetables, and fresh seafood. I was told about this place by a friend back in 2001. Overtime we visit the Souther California area we make at least one trip here. Our last trip we ate here three times in seven days. This is a very modestly appointed place but don't let its appearance fool you it... More

The food was terrific and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. Had to wait for 30 minutes on a Saturday evening...but it was worth the wait!

This is a great place. It is definitely in humble surroundings but the food is amazing - BBQ beef and spicy pork as well as the salad choices (cucumber and bok choy salads are particularly good) and kimchee are delicious. We had an all you can eat lunch for two for $30 - WOW- What a deal!!! I disagree that... More

Went here for dinner. Make sure you are hungry. Also, make sure you don't go anywhere afterwards because you will smell like a korean bbq. Food was good. Service was ok. A little pricey if you don't eat that much - $20/person. They even charge you for rice! I do like the choices (everything from beef, chicken, fish). I think... More

Seoul Garden was the first Korean BBQ restaurant I ever tried about 5 years ago. I have since been back numerous times to enjoy this "all you can eat" Korean buffet. It isn't much on atmosphere, but I have found the food to be consistently good. The marinated Kalbi beef is my personal favorite, along with the thin cut pork... More

I really like the Seoul Garden. I've been coming here probably since they opened the place. For the price they charge, they serve up a lot of good food and great value. Dinner has more meat options than lunch of course, I don't recall seeing kalbi at lunch very often, but they have spicy pork, chicken and pork belly (bacon),... More

Dont know if all the 5 star reviews here are fake or just written by people with low standards. Yes, there was an enormous 2 inch cockroach crawling on the glass above the meat. The owner (old woman) saw us staring in disgust but she wins the award for gumption as she just shrugged and said its because doors open.... More
