Korea Gardens

Korea Gardens is located on the corner of Clayton Rd and Centre Rd. It is frequented by a lot of Korean people, so that must be saying something. The restaurant itself is quite weird in terms of the interior. The whole restaurant is located on the second level, with the entrance door located to the side. Upon entering the door, you have an empty area thats not really used. There are some raised areas on the side that is occasionally used to seat guests, but generally is empty.

The waitress brought over iced water immediately, which was good. When Kin, Paul and I were ready to order, there was a little buzzer on the table that you press to get the waitress attention. That's a cool thing because sometimes its very hard to get the attention of the staff. However, Paul accidentally lent on it once.

We ordered a Chicken Bimbambap and Sweet Chilli Chicken to share. The Bimbambap was a bit light on flavour. The beef bimbambap that they do is much better. I will get that one next time instead. The assortment of side dishes they give is quite a lot. The kimchi here is very good, and the seafood isn't bad either.

The Sweet Chilli Chicken was a huge plate of chicken wing drumettes battered and cooked with a sweet chilli sauce. I'm generally not a fan of sweet chilli sauces as they are more often than not bad, but this one was very good.

I've been to this place quite a few times and tried various things. Most of the dishes have been very good. It's no wonder actual Korean people are the majority of the patrons here. When the food that is being served is eaten by the actual same countries people, it generally means its authentic and good.

Overall Rating: 14/20, Food and service good but serving sizes way too small.

Scores: 1-9: Unacceptable, don't bother. 10-11: Just OK,some shortcomings. 12: Fair. 13: Getting there. 14: Recommended. 15: Good. 16: Really good. 17: Truly excellent. 18: An outstanding experience. 19-20: Approaching perfection, Victoria's best.


  1. The Korean chick made passes at me

  2. Anonymous, as I remember, the only pass the waitress made to you was to pass you your food. Better luck next time.
