Wow, I can't believe I'm writing the first review for this place in 2014! Long overdue I think. Garlic & Ginger has quality Korean food in an unexpected location considering that Gainesville is a smaller city(albeit a college town). The location is convenient if traveling...More

Recently returned to Garlic & Ginger with friends of mine, and once again I was not disappointed. Everything is very authentic. We got four different entrees and shared with one another. This time it was beef bulgogi, a soup made with beef and scallions, the...More

My friend and I ate here on a Tuesday night, at around 8:30 pm. There were only two other customers at the time, which made us worried as sometimes a slow restaurant isn't a great restaurant. However, that turned out not to be the case!...More

Serve good quality korean food. Like tofu pot. A little bit salty though. Usually they serve a kind of korean soup made of ginger and rice after your meal, remember to ask for it.

We visited Garlic and Ginger a handful of times while living nearby. The food quality is decent, and particularly exceeded our expectations for being in a strip mall in northern Florida. The bi bim bap was delicious, as was the chapchae. Both were on par...More

This was my first time trying Korean food, so I can not comment on the authenticity. I went alone and had the bulgogi beef lunch platter that came with rice and about seven other things that I wasn't really sure what it was. Miso soup,...More

If you are in town and love Korean food or just want to try something different this is truly as authentic as it gets. After spending a couple of years in Korea, I crave it! Garlic and Ginger rivals the Korean restaurants in San Francisco...More

Newly opened and a wonderful restaurant...we drove 90 miles and found this jewel...we plan to return monthly! And NO, we do NOT own or benefit from this place of business. "Thank You" for considering to place fine restaurant on TripAdvisor...
