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.

Basically my 2nd Home

I've been to Ju Shin Jung countless of times, it all began when neighboring restaurant Waraku continuously served us food that was no longer as spectacular as before. One day, Dad said, "What's that huge building over there? Let's check it out." And that day was the day I fell in love with Korean cuisine. Okay story time ends here. I usually come here with the family whenever we're hungry regardless of whatever we crave for. The side dishes are great, especially the mashed potato which reminds me of an ice cream scoop and the spinach. I've come here for years that we've seen the Korean style ikan bilis switch to a fish cake stir fry to pickled radish. We usually order marinated beef and marinated chicken, the extra seasoning is what we prefer over the pure natural beef flavor. It is sweet and savory, goes great with ssamjang (soybean based sauce) and lettuce. My brother sometimes gets so desperate that he bites the remaining meat left on the beef bone! Not only the food is awesome, but the staff are also friendly and attentive. We've made friends with the Chinese female manager (she wears black clothes unlike the others' white) who is able to speak Korean fluently. She also usually gives us a complimentary steamed egg side dish which we always decline but it gets served anyway :) that's how delicious the food is for us to return without fail each time :D The meal is always finished with watermelon hearts, sometimes they're a little stale but others really juicy, and also with ginger tea which my parents always dilute with the given cold water because it's a bit too strong to their liking. Overall it is the best Korean restaurant by far, every time we try out a new Korean place we always say "Ju shin Jing's better!"

Gullimard Branch: Smoky, Stuffy, Pricey

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.

Not a place for Samgetang

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 Samgetang
