this restaurant was too expensive.

only thing good is location
Who wants to be in Plano? – Really, maybe you have live in Plano but why would you eat there. Convienence is not a reason to sacrifice quality. This spot is not going to do it if you want Korean. If pickled cabage is your thing, try another establishment.
Great Hole in the Wall – Korean Garden definitely fits hole-in-the-wall, in fact, if you drive around the shopping center at the northeast corner of Park and Coit, you wont even see a sign outside for Korean Garden. You have to go in the mall as if youre entering May Hua Supermarket, take a left down a hallway immediately after you pass the hanging BBQ ducks and roast pig at Joy Luck BBQ, and come to what looks like a mini mall food court where Korean Garden is sandwiched between a sushi place and a Shiseido makeup counter.
Walk up to the Korean Garden counter and order like you would at a mall Manchu Wok (the menu even has pictures like at those mall Chinese food places). They give you a number, you grab a seat and wait for your number to be called and bring your own food back to the table. The BBQ chicken dish came out first along with the banchan. Though the chicken was tender (but quite a few pieces had notable amounts of gristle), I found this slightly spicy dish to be a bit bland. The BBQ spareribs was my favorite entree out of the three. The meat was a little bit fatty, but well seasoned and not overdone. The mixed bowl was served with shredded beef, shredded lettuce, shredded carrots, bean sprouts, spinach, some kind of long narrow darkish string bean, cucumber slices, and an egg topped with dried seaweed. The shredded beef was tender and delicious. The rest of the ingredients were bland and I used the kimchi to help add some flavor. I did love the texture crunchy rice at the bottom of the stone bowl.
All in all, Korean Garden is a great value. It gives you that I discovered a cool little unknown joint feel and serves food to that expectation. All of the ingredients were superbly fresh, and I would definitely go back and try other items off of the menu (I saw quite a few tables with the mixed seafood pancake that looked appetizing). Its fun and its cheap.
Great Value – I grew up in LA and had access to incredible ethnic food. This restaurant is great value and the Korean BBQ is decent. There is no tipping since it is in a cafeteria environment and BYOB. The side dishes are rather sparse though but the other foods are decent. To be honest, this is a pretty good deal and quality for Dallas.
perfect dinner for plano folks – instead of driving 25 minutes to korean town, just drive 5 minutes and you are there!!!
the food is delicious, and people are very friendly too
User review by jenpeong – It's a small cafe style. The food is prepared with high quality yet the price is very cheap. Highly recommended.
