This Korean barbecue restaurant has spacious dining rooms with pleasant decor. Buffet lunch menus are available and the samgetang (ginseng chicken soup) is a good complement to the barbecue flavours.

Debut in 2003 at West Coast, business of Ju Shin Jung Korean BBQ took flight and has 4 outlets island wide today; West Coast, East Coast,GuillemardRoad and Robertson Walk. Despite the craze for Korean BBQ in Singapore, yet each outlet that I visited has subtle differences that sets them apart from one another.
Here at Ju Shin Jung, they offer full services which includes well-trained staffs who BBQ-ed the meat for us and served a full set of Korean sides the moment we settled down.
For buffet, there are 5 choices of meat (pork belly, pork loin, marinated pork, and marinated chicken & seasoned sliced beef) and fresh prawns. If you want more variety, you may wish to order from the Ala carte segment. Wagyu beef are available too!
Apart from meat and sides, we got to choose 1 out of 7 choices as our main dish.
Overall, I will classify Ju Shin Jung Korean BBQ as a 'above average' BBQ outlet. Tables are nicely spaced out as well which gave us room for privacy. Oh yes, there is also a kids entertainment corner for your child.
Ate here and had chronic diarrhoea for 5 days and counting. The service staff was not attentive and sloppy while preparing the food. The standard has dropped dramatically since my last visit. Please be careful while eating here.
I had been to its East Coast outlet (now closed) & expected the same comfy setting & decent service at this relatively new Gullimard branch. However, when I stepped into its Gullimard branch on a Sunday afternoon, I was overwhelmed by smoky & stuffy air as it does not hv a single exhaust pipe which typifies any Korean restaurant. Further, the aircon was not strong enough to cool down the hot air generated by the hot grills & the Sunday crowd. So you ended smelling like the bbq meat & perspired throughout the meal. Service was slow. Though we had the buffet option ($38/pax) plus an ala carte order of a plate of wagyu beef ($59 for 3 strips), after they served the 1st round of meat & side dishes, it was almost impossible to get any waiter's attention for top-ups. I had the impression that the waiters were either NOT trained to look out for customers in need or trained NOT to make eye contact with customers in need. After 15min wait, we managed to get the attention of a waitress (named Min Jung) to request for a top up of 3 types (out of 8 types) of side dishes. Unfortunatedly, after listing the 3 sides dishes, she gave an uncalled-for remark, 'Oh, that's almost every side dish you are asking for!' Fyi, that was the only top-ups we managed to get throughout the buffet lunch. When we asked for 2 more types of meat, it never came. After 25 mins, we had lost our appetite & decided not to bother. For the price we paid ($55/pax), I could hv easily find another korean bbq restaurant with better food, more comfy ambience & better service. Definitely will NOT go back again.
It is a total disappointment to have a Samgetang without stuffed ginseng nor its taste at all. According to the chef, the ginseng is cooked in soup and not stuffed in the chicken. I believe the supermarkets sell better Samgetangs
