Best Korean food around. The food is amazing. The staff are fantastic and we try going here any chance we get. Great place to take your visitors to in order for them to get a great meal. We love taking our out of town relatives.

This is my FAVORITE Korean Restaurant. The food is absolutely delish! I love all the side dishes they bring out before the main course. My family and I always order the Kalibi dish. It's sweet and juicy and definitely a favorite of ours. I also really like their rice there, it's cooked just right. I also like their noodle section as well--they're worth a try. The pricing is decent and I definitely recommend this place.

I've been to Secret Garden several times and every time has been DELICIOUS! I've never had problems with my orders even though their servers' english was limited. I usually order the Bibim Bap (hot stone claypot w/beef & veggies) or the Mandu Kuk (dumpling soup). It's always very good & my order comes very quickly even when they are crowded. \r\n\r\nWell, the food may come fast but trying to get a refill of water or actually get your check to pay can be challenging. I think that's my only complaint. They have too many servers helping EVERYONE & it appears that servers aren't assigned specific areas to help so it gets a little crazy. I've actually refilled my own water before. It beats waiting when you've eaten Kimchi & your mouth is on fire! As far as paying, I've learned to just walk up to the register when I'm ready to go so that I don't have to wait for them to deliver my check...it's MUCH faster that way & I don't mind. Their servers are always friendly & the food has always been great :-). \r\n\r\nJust a note, they've ""updated"" the inside w/new seats & menus. Looks great!

Pros: Bibim Bap, Mandu Kuk

Cons: slow for refills & check

A Korean friend first introduced me to Secret Garden about 6-years ago. I quickly became a big fan of the food, the staff, and the aptmosphere, and I was there so often that everyone knew my name.\n\nUnfortunately, that's no longer the case.\n\nThe food is usually good (but not reliably so), but the service has gotten so poor that I refuse to go there anymore.\n\nSometimes food is cold, sometimes it's not prepared the way you'd asked for it, and sometimes they forget entire items from your order. ""Service with a smile"" seems to have been replaced with ""service if you're lucky"".\n\nPerhaps it's the newer faces, maybe new management, I don't know. What I do know is that in my opinion, there are much better experiences to be had elsewhere and I would not recommend Secret Garden.

I got take out (2 orders of Bi Bim Bap). I asked for no eggs, but they put eggs on. Also, they did not include rice. Every where else I've been rice is a given with Bi Bim Bap. It's like eating a hot dog without a bun!\n\nI need to find a korean place around San Mateo.
