Awesome customer service, always quick to change the BBQ plate and very helpful staff too. Really really rare for a Korean BBQ buffet place in the heart of the city!
Food selection was great, the quality is top-notch and most importantly – they are quick to refill! highly recommended
We had great fun here! The food is really yummy and interesting and it’s fun cooking at the BBQ. Amazing value for money!!! The only downer was we had to ask someone to come over and explain what to do as we sat there looking lost for a little while and there isn’t much customer service but we didn’t mind at all considering the price! Overall highly recommended for a cheap and fun and yummy night out.
I had a very enjoyable Korean buffet for lunch today. To start with, the two soups were just beautiful – a soybean soup (which was very similar to Japanese miso soup, with delicious slippery bits of dark green seaweed in it). Plus a separate seawood soup – also extremely salty and yum.
I love the way Korean cuisine does its vegetables – and the big variety of sides is always a highlight for me. I felt like being semi-vegetarian today, so for the main dishes I stuck with the soft-tofu chilli stew (YUM), boiled rice, a very delicious translucent noodle salad (that was my fave dish), ricecake in quite long cylindrical pieces swimming in a lovely med-spicy orange sauce, and very very tasty little pieces of korean pancake. And other yummy things like fresh curled, split spring onions – with a brown sauce to drizzle over the top.
I was enticed to Paradise Garden by the $15 lunch ‘buffet without bbq’ offer. I noticed that there were other diners doing the meat bbq at their tables too during lunchtime. If I had been eating meat today though, I think I would have still stuck to the $15 buffet – because there were plenty of tasty meat options on the buffet without needing to cook extra up on the barbecue. (But I’m more inclined to not bother with the barbecuing process at my own table during lunch anyhow).
My one recommendation would be that the freshly cooked food on the buffet was already cooled down a lot by the time I arrived at 12pm. So… I think the Paradise team should make sure they get those little burners underneath the buffet dishes going as soon as you put the hot dishes on the table… Otherwise punters like me who arrive at 12 on the dot, are getting lukewarm rice! It still tasted great though, and they have a big A grade certificate on the wall, so I wasn’t too worried – but I mentioned it to the waitress, and she apologized, and explained it had all been prepared at 11am when they opened.
Aside from that… I think this place is wonderful value, with a very tasty range of Korean buffet food. It would be a marvelous place to bring a group of friends and do the bbq buffet thing round the table for dinner too.
OMG…Everyone needs to DROP everything and go there NOW!!!..The food and service was AWESOME. Our waitress was Jen, she was always there with a smile answering all our questions about everything. Being Pacific Islanders, age ranging from 16 – 32, we had NO idea what to expect, other than trying out food we’d seen on certain Korean Dramas, but this experience BLEW us AWAY beyond our belief….SO, much food and it suited everyone’s taste-buds, this was TRULY one of my BEST DINING EXPERIENCES EVER….Watch out PARADISE, you’ve got MAJOR FANS!!!..We’ll be seeing you soon..
Very nice ‘REAL’ Korean food. High quality meat and all side dishes, which is a total surprise from other Korean restaurants. If you want to experience real Korean BBQ that is/tastes exactly the same as what you would experience in South Korea, go here.
