Great Bi Bim Bab, outstanding chicken soup. LOVE their noodle salad. Odd mimatched serving pieces, plates. At least you know all the $$ go to the food - and not the decorations!

One waitress and one cook makes for very slow service. In addition to long wait time we drove north an hour and had to double back for my purse. Ugh. Have to get that soup recipe it was awesome. Nice waitress. Too bad she did not have another two waiters helping.

This is a relaxed, family run restaurant, that is affordable, and has authentic Korean food. I like their many freshly made vegetarian options.

For old time's sake,... More

I've been going to Shin La for 20 yrs., my husband even longer. The Korean food is made by a Korean woman and her staff. The quality has never changed, always excellent! The soups have a healing effect, specially in the Winter. The appetizers are great; Yakimando (dumplings), Steamed Tofu, or Edamame (salted green soybeans) to name a few. Traditional,... More

I have heard rumors they may be thinking of retirement. I will be truly sad if this place is no longer with... More

This restaurant in the center of Brattleboro has an extensive menu of Korean food, plus a wide variety of sushi. The service can sometimes be slow, but the food never disappoints.
