The food came a little slowly because it was busy but otherwise it was great. Everything I have tried there is delicious. You must like garlic to enjoy it, though.

“Perfect for a change”
Reviewed 2 May 2013

very nice place and nice decorations can be found inside the restaurant which were made out of garlic. truly feels MAD FOR GARLIC when you enter there. Garlic oysters, my favorite in here. Kind of expensive but worth to try.

“Expensive for that type of food”
Reviewed 26 January 2013 via mobile

We were three and spent 100,000 KW for one pizza, one pasta and two salads. Drank three coca cola. The pizza in Italy is 5-7 euro but here the pizza is almost 15 euro and much smaller in size. However the garlic snow pizza is unique and kind of tasty. The mozzarella cheese wad very fresh and tasty. The envioronment is a copy of typical Italian old style restaurant.

“OK restaurant”
Reviewed 26 December 2012

Food was average, service not very attentive. Prices high for what you get. About average for a trendy restaurant with a trendy name.

“Mad for Garlic! The name says it all!”
Reviewed 1 November 2012

In a place like Korea, Mad for Garlic is truly a euphamism for simply eating. Koreans' extensive use of garlic in their cuisine fits rather well a franchise whose claim to fame is garlic. The menu selection is wide and the variety makes some dinners pause for a time prior to being able to make their final choice. You cannot beat good mass produced Italian food and Mad for Garlic has figured it out. Lots of good bread and olive oil to fill you up prior to the main course if you're not careful. Do take your time to enjoy the fresh salads which continue to come as long as you will have it. Again great place for a large group party celebrating whatever you can dream off. Enjoy and do take a mint or two with you on the way out the door!
