The Service: Very efficient. However, not super attentive. Have to keep asking for service. The Food: Tasty side dishes. Love the combo meals, tofu soup with meat. Very generous meat portion, perfect to share! Very authentic Korean food. Many Korean customers there. Love their beef dishes... not so much about the chicken. The Parking: Private lot next to the restaurant

My husband and I checked this place out because we love Korean BBQ. The food and atmosphere was just OKAY for the price. The customer service was lacking a bit. I wouldn't want to return here...there are better places to eat KBBQ.

We went to Young Dong Garden in Arcadia for dinner after reading a glowing review in a local Pasadena paper. It was very disappointing. I had japchae, a yam noodle dish and bibimbap, a Korean rice dish. Dinner started well enough with an array of small dishes, kimchi, seaweed, bean sprouts, spicy pickled zucchini and slivers of tofu marinated in... More

This Korean restaurant is in a pleasant wood building that may have been a German restaurant previously. The restaurant basically has two types of food: American and Korean. By this I mean the Korean barbecue dishes are something any American can relate to because they are basically like American barbecue. But the real Korean dishes definitely have a taste unfamiliar...

When this place first opened the staff were rude and inattentive but I'm glad to say that's changed. My Husband and I were there just last night. The staff were very nice and on the ball. The food was good, if uninspired, but good.

Took some friends here that had never had any Asian food of any kind. They all loved the place. The BBQ short ribs are absolutely a must eat. I could not have been happier. Also the service was friendly and excellent. They brought out 6 or 7 different sides just for us to try and offered more at no charge.... More

You won't be disappointed if you like Korean. You won't leave hungry either! I had the bulgogi and kimchi. They give you as much kimchi as you can handle and the portions are large enough for two. Very tasty and a excellent choose to eat at.

Several restaurants have been in this location over the past 15 years I've been nearby. This latest incarnation is the BEST. I went recently with a group of about 16 people. There was lots of tasty food to share. Although I wasn't impressed by the hot tea (very bland), the food was excellent. It felt like they kept bringing meat... More

I was craving Korean food so we decided to try Young Dong Garden in Arcadia,Ca. The food was great. Poor customer service. I told the our server to seperate our checks but failed to do so simply because she cannot operate the cash register. We accepted her excuse. We went there again for dinner and it was our third time.... More
