Yup Korean Garden Grille is good. I was there on the opening week. The service is quite pleasing. However as for korean bbq my latest favorite is Tofu Village
Best Korean Restaurant Houston 2005 - Green Pine Tree Bar & Grill
I visited the Korea Garden Grille on Bellaire and it's quite an experience. Before I mention the food, the decor and cleanliness is beyond any Korean.. let alone any Asian restaurant I've been to. They have a more modern look while maintaining a traditional Korea look. (I'm Chinese, but have visited Korea many times and have quite a few Korea friends). The assortment of food that they offer is excellent. Unfortunately, the manager informed us that we cannot grill at the tables yet, but we were able to hand over the meats we wanted to eat for the server to grill. They had a lot of choices on meats as well as all kinds of side dishes that I've never seen at other Korean restaurants. Definately check this place out. Although it's a bit pricey, you get higher quality and I left w/o thinking I overpaid for my meal.
I agree with Jess. I'm Korean, too, and prefer Asiana and Korea Garden. Seoul Garden is not bad. I also recommend the meals served at the KOMART supermarket, which are a great deal for about $5 bucks.
I cant seem to find the address or phone number for Korean Garden Grille on bellaire, could you let me know if you have any info
I beg to differ. Who has reviewed all the Korean restaurants in Houston and decided that Green Pine is the best? For one, I do not like to see sushi being served in a Korean restaurant. It's not Korean food so I try to stay away from places like this. Secondly, the barbeque here is mediocre. Seasoning is a bit mild and the side dishes could have a bit more kick and freshness to it. I'm Korean and so I frequent the Korean hot spots when I dont want to cook at home. But I like to visit the older/more established Korean restaurants like Korea Garden or Asiana- although now for bbq I like to fill myself with the new all-you-can-eat Korean bbq restaurant on bellaire- Korean Garden Grille (dont know if its connected w/ Korea Garden). If you want traditional/genuine Korean food, stay away from places that serve Korean/Chinese or Korean/Japanese as flavor and quality of the bbq is compromised. Just my two cents.
