Best Korean Restaurant in Singapore!

The meat was actually really tender (I had Wagyu beef) and when grilled about medium/medium well, melts in your mouth. The marbling of the beef was amazing - the best I saw in Singapore. I also recommend the salmon sashimi salad!

I have been to about 5-6 of Korean restaurants in Singapore, and all of them use too much msg and other food additives, which could artificially stimulate your taste buds, but cannot be considered really good. However, from what I have tasted Chang does not use any msg, so you will not get drowsy after you eat :) I think those people who think that the food here is blend may be addicted to the taste of msg or something because I thought the food tasted great. Strong taste does not equal good taste.

I am Korean myself and I have lived all over the world so I know how real Korean food taste like. I also consider myself an epicure as I like to try all the best restaurants from the places I have visited, and Chang Korean BBQ Restaurant really helped me make my day.

Not worth the price

Had dinner twice at Chang Korean BBQ restaurant. The first time I was impressed by the variety of side dishes and the good service. I was disappointed recently by the slow service and the small portion of side dishes served. The waiters did not top up the side dishes nor have any time for us. We had to get their attention several times. For the amount they charged, the food is expensive and quality so so and portion small. I will not go back again.

Service most appallingly bad! Will never come back again!!

We called ahead and made a reservation for dinner for 4 at 6.45pm and we turned up on time. We were shown to a private room with a very long table that can take about 16 pax. No one pre-empted us prior that we have to finish and vacate as soon as we are done eating as they are expecting a bigger group.

We were all hungry and didn't waste any time in finishing the two BBQ sets we ordered. However, the staff suddenly started to quicken their actions and wasted no time to start clearing our plates, the bowl of burning charcoal, serve us our fruits and even brought us the bill without us even asking for one! It was a Friday and we thought we can chill and chat longer after the meal!

Since the bill was brought to us, we settled it promptly. That's when the horror of horror started! The female Korean manager then appeared out of nowhere to ask if we mind shifting ourselves and our barely started fruits amd rice tea to another spot as another group is coming into this room. We all thought it could have been handled when we first arrived so we can pace ourself and not be left with no choice but to say "yes". Nonetheless,, we acceded to her request promptly and without any hint of unhappiness as we just wanted to be understanding and nice and didnt want to kick up a fuss to spoil our Friday night. Little did we expect her to bring us to a table outdoor just outside the entrance and right next to the dustbin where hogs and hogs of smokers come and go and we were left there to take in their second hand smoke while finishing our rice tea. That's still not the end of our saga. We had to repeatedly try to get the attention of the staff to bring us our unfinished fruit and tea. They failed to bring us our water and when we asked for it, the waiter only brought one glass. Complimentary ice cream was served to us to supposedly make up for the inconvenience and while there were 4 scoops served, only 3 spoons were given. Again, we had to strive to get the attention of the waiting staff to ask for one more spoon. The spoon never came. The meal did not come cheap at $230 and we all expected to be treated better than this.

The 4 of us were all there for the very first time and were left totally sore and upset over their appallingly bad service and handling! And will definitely never return for another visit!
