The hot pan can be replaced with a new one upon request should it stained badly after some grilling.

Time to scroll for food and drinks. I went to their drinks station first and I was overwhelmed to see the fruit juice station made available to us.

They have marinated chicken, beef, lamb, fish and squid to choose from for you to grill. Flavours ranges from black pepper, bbq, curry to the exotic coffee flavour.

Vegetables and side condiments

Sauce staion
My personal favourite would be the Seoul Garden Special Sauce as it adds flavour to the grilled meat.

Time to take the raw marinated meat to the table. My first helping consisted a variety flavour of chicken meat.

Keep an eye as not to overcook them

After a few minutes of grilling them, it's time to enjoy them while they're still sizzling hot!
And it's ready to go
The chicken meat marination were pretty decent, not something that really 'wow' you but you won't complain it either. On a side note, the coffee flavoured chicken tasted too exotic for my taste bud!

If you are tired of grilling, you can have a short break by having some steamboat.

The grilling won't stop at the first helping. It continued with lamb meat marinated with black pepper sauce.
Black Pepper Lamb
This was the bomb! Not only the marination was good, but the meat were well infused with the black pepper marination as well. And if you grill them in the right way, you are off to enjoy some really good juicy black pepper lamb!

Curry Flavour Squid
Squids are usually very resistant to marination, but the squid somewhat are well infused with the curry flavour marination in this case. It makes me wondered how they get it done.

Some Garden Salad

I continued by having more black pepper lamb and some Bulgoki flavoured chicken. I took some lettuce too so that I can enjoy the grilled meat in a Korean BBQ way.

As the grilling is done, it's time to savour the Bulgoki flavoured chicken in a Korean BBQ way by wrapping the grilled meat with a slice of lettuce.

The fresh and crunchy lettuce went so well with the grilled Bulgoki flavoured chicken.

Here are some of the ready food made available to you.
You can make your own rojak

Stuffed cheese meat in crab shell
I thought it was lacking in flavour and tasted awful.

Dessert Bar
Consisted of a few fruits and various condiments for you to shape your own bowl of ais kacang (shaved ice).

Ais Kacang
I tried mixing a few of this and that condiments but it ended up not nice. The ais kacang tasted bland and could have been better if they provide some gula Melaka.

Ice Cream Bar
They offer King's ice cream. My favourite were the chocolate and honey dew flavour.
Happy 26th Birthday to you Chee!

This was my first time visiting Seoul Garden and I must admit that I really enjoyed savouring their grilled meat in a very cozy atmosphere. Not only that, their customer service of this branch was great as well, as we were attended almost instantly upon request. I also noted that the food are always replenished when they are finishing.

Making things better, we only paid for 7 pax as they have a promotion which entitled birthday person on the same day to eat free with a minimum of 7 paying adults. I would definitely revisit them for more and more grilled meat! Do visit their website at for the latest ongoing promotions.
