If you are looking for a good authentic, delicious, reasonably priced Korean lunch off the Strip, then Madang Garden is for you. A lot of times I like being on the Strip. Despite the fact that many locals avoid it, just like other “touristy” places like Time Square, I happen to like the glitz, crowds and excitement. However, off the Strip is where you will find a ton of great places to eat, especially of the Asian variety.
Madang Garden is located about 5-10 minutes from the Strip in a rundown strip mall that also houses other famous Asian restaurants like Lotus of Siam. The interior reminds me of a lot of the places I ate in Korea like this BBQ duck place.
We ordered galbi and kimchi stew. The nice thing about Korean meal is all the banchan, or veggie side dishes you will get with your meal.
The galbi was well marinated, tender, and delicious. The kimchi stew was satisfying and came out bubbling as it should be.
Service was very friendly but slow. Overall, this was a very satisfying lunch, very delicious and well priced. I would definitely go back for lunch in Vegas.
