Great food and service

Very clean restaurant with great food. Meat was very tasty, tender and fresh. Side dishes were varied and good. Kimchi was excellent. Service was very friendly and quick. Definitely recommend.

I have eaten at many Korean restaurants in Korea and New York. My daughter was craving Korean BBQ so we took her to Shin Chon to celebrate a great report card. The bulgogi and kalbi were delicious. Nicely seasoned with all of the usual fixings - lettuce leaves, peppers, gochu jang, garlic, seasoned scallions - made for delicious BBQ. The... More

My wife is originally from Seoul, South Korea and needs to have Korean BBQ at least once a week besides the food she makes at home. Shin Chon is a great place to eat at for what we consider authentic Korean BBQ. We've eaten here twice and had the kalbi and samgyeopsal. The entrees come with a wide variety of... More

We used to go to Honey Pig but one of my Korean friends yelled at me and told me to go to Shin Chon instead. The service wasn't that great, but the food was excellent!

Promptly greeted and seated on a Saturday afternoon; wide food selection with easy to read menu; side BBQ dishes were fresh, tasty and food portions appropriate; don't typically eat Korean food and was skeptical, but thoroughly enjoyed our meal; staff was attentive, albeit, the service seemed rushed, but perhaps part of the Korean culture...? However, would return again and recommend... More

Ate here tonight and left expecting more. We have been here several times and have enjoyed our meals in the past. Typical Korean BBQ, close to Baltimore City. Despite always having that "rushed" feeling from staff, tonight was a bit much. This place can be great and hope they aspire to be a bit better in the service department. Will... More

When my wife lived in Virginia and we needed to meet in the middle (I live in DE), Shin Chon Garden was right in the middle between the two of us. Baltimore does not have a great Korean food reputation, but this suburb outside of the city delivers high quality food! There are some well-priced barbeque deals and they serve... More

This was my first time in a Korean BBQ. I was with 3 coworkers, one being Korean that had been before. He ordered and spoke to the staff. The four of us were seated at a table with a grill in the middle. My Korean coworker ordered (marinaded pork ribs with all of the sides.) They were different types of... More

The smell of grilled meats wafted into the parking lot, beckoning all to enter. There wasn't a terribly long line for a Friday night, but it was already late and we wanted something quick and delicious. Perhaps we should have waited the extra 25 minutes to get a "barbecue" table, but we decided to simply try the regular Korean fare.... More

I've been on a trying-all-the-korean-places spree ever since I moved to the Baltimore area, and Shin Chon is probably one of the better ones. In my opinion, I think Shin Chon's got the highest quality of barbeque meats and a large variety of side dishes. Their beef is the best out of the 5 or so Korean bbq restaurants I've... More
