I would have to say that I totally disagree with Steve B's review. My husband & I eat at New Seoul about once a week. He is Korean & I lived in Korea for about 3 years. We moved back here in 2000 & have gone to New Seoul Garden since that time.

We have tried Koreana, which we thought was just OK, and we have tried a few other Korean restaurants around Portland & Beaverton. But when it comes down to it, we only go to & really enjoy New Seoul Garden.

We usually order sam gyup sal (pork) or beef bulgogi if we feel like cooking at the table.

If we feel like soups, my husband always orders their Kimchi Chigae(kimchi soup) and my daughter & I always share an order of Duk Mandu guk (rice cake & dumpling soup). Whenever we order soups, we also get a side order of Chop chae (clear noodles with meat & vegetables).

The staff is super friendly, the food is excellent and the side dishes are always very good.

The one thing I would agree with Steve B's review, the new location is much better.

This restaurant has the usual Korean food, but isn't nearly as good as the Koreana restaurant just down the street. They do have my favorite dish, duk bok ki (spicy rice cakes and fish cakes) but the spice wasn't as crisp-tasting as I would like. It tasted like someone smeared a bunch of garlic pepper sauce over it without spending any effort.

They also have the in-table grills for self-grilling which can be fun.

EDIT: I've since heard that this restaurant is closed.

EDIT2: They're not closed, they just moved. The food quality seemed much better the next time when I ordered some different things. In particular the chicken bul go gi was excellent-- rivalling Koreana's. The duk bok ki remained just OK.

Their new address:
