Korean Garden is one of the newer Korean restaurants in Junction City, Kansas. Yes there are several Korean restaurants. Junction City has a large Korean community. I assume it is related to the proximity to Fort Riley.
I've never had a dish at Korean Garden that I didn't like. My favorite main dishes include kalbi (BBQ short ribs), bulgogi (Korean BBQ beef) and ojinguh nokum (spicy stir fried baby octopus). Most dinners range from $12-17 and come with steamed rice and a variable selection of side dishes. My favorite sides so far have been the cucumber kim chee and sautéed mushrooms.
Tuesday to Friday there are several lunch box specials for $7.50 from 11AM - 2PM.
During my last visit to Korean Garden, I had a nice chat with the Junction City family at the next table. They had noticed my taking pictures and asked why I was photographing the food. They are regulars at Korean Garden who usually get the bulgogi, but I think they may get a little more adventurous on their next visit.
Korea Garden restaurant's dining room is plain but very clean.
