Seoul Garden

You don’t go here for the ambiance, though if you manage to close your eyes (and try not to bump into a table of karaoke-singing punters) as you walk through the neon-lit, TV-blaring, air-con-blasting interior, there is actually a nice outdoors area with a pond and some fronds. But the real draw is the food. If you like meats that sizzle, rich punchy flavours and a delightful array of Korean side dishes, then this venue is for you. Upon arrival, a plethora of free side dishes are immediately plonked on the table, ranging from a mind-boggling variety of kimchi and pickled stuff to dried fish, shellfish and other tasty things we couldn’t quite decipher, but polished off with relish nonetheless. The true highlight of the meal is the traditional Korean BBQ which comes with a wide variety of meats and cuts. Pile on the garlic, the chilli, the meat, and down it all with some gentle miso and fluffy rice. Dining at Seoul Garden is a fun experience and really inexpensive – a full meal for three cost us only 1,000 baht.
