A great Korean restaurant with an abundance of vegetables and a varied menu. The staff are friendly and we had a great time.

Service here could most charitably be described as "odd". We struggled for about 30 minutes to get any attention and only stayed because we really wanted Korean BBQ. I don't know whether we needed WeChat to hail the waiter (there is a WR code on the menu) but something went horribly wrong. When we did get an order, we got... More

We went to benjia as a group of 4 at 9pm, the food was good and prices mod to high (100 rmb for meat and 70 rmb for cooked entrees). Before we even got halfway through our meal we were asked to pay. I wasn't expecting such poor service given the pricepoint and internationally reclaimed chef restaurant. Given the many... More

As a Korean myself, I'd say this is a quite authentic Korean restaurant in Shenzhen. Strongly recommend the high quality beef for barbeque (don't remember the exact name, but it's 175rmb/serving). The cabbage, carrots and other vegetable the restaurant serves came in a long plate, and they were very fresh as well. I like the ginseng chicken soup as well... More

Benjia used to be my favorite korean in town. In the beginning it was absolutely amazing. But things have changed. Even the side dishes taste soso, except for the salad with great sesame dressing. The kimchi has no taste. The dishes are still kind of ok, but not worth the extra money you pay compared to other koreans. There is... More

When your wife is Korean you know you have to try to find the best Korean restaurant in any new area. We found this restaurant using TripAdvisor and we must say it was worth doing the research and taking a 20-minute taxi ride. After some searching we finally found the restaurant. It is a little bit difficult to find because... More

If you are looking to get your Korean BBQ fix, Benjia is the place you need to go. It is located in Huanlehaian, so you will need to take a taxi to get there. It the place that has the IMAX movie theater and the water laser shows. There are tons of restaurant, bar, and club options here, so if... More

Our good friends from Korea invited us to dinner at Benjia. We enjoyed a fabulous meal! We avoided a long wait by arriving early. If we arrived latter than 5:30 the queue may have been an hour or more. Some very nice Korean artifacts in the lobby area. The restaurant was clean and the staff were very helpful. Enjoyed having...

Both times with friends, both times very delicious! Large portions of different vegetables included. Just try a bit of everything, from beef, to soup, to vermicelli, you won't regret it!
