“It meowed”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

This place is thoroughly disgusting. it is right off state road 50, quite possibly the ugliest road in American in what looks like a converted shed. it feels dirty inside. i went with a large party so they included tip. There were a bunch of white gloves hanging on a fence in the alley parking and i was convinced they were hang drying from strangling possum the night before. The chicken was the identical mystery meat that they hand out free in mall food courts. The thin sliced ribeye was not thin sliced and not from any cow I have ever seen. The short ribs looked like lamb chops and the meat was so tough two tigers couldn't pull it apart. The miso soup was okay but the ecoutrements in the lunch box were not edible. This may be the worst asian food I've ever had. Horrible value and horrible quality. I woke up with night sweats. The experience was so bad I will never even drive by again. AVOID!!!

“Great Korean Food in Orlando”
Reviewed October 25, 2012 via mobile

First of all if you're not paying attention you're gonna pass by it. It's a really small looking building but once you get inside, it's not that bad. The food is excellent. I love the bul go gi & they hit it out of the park. I've been going here for a couple years now.

“Korean BBQ at its best”
Reviewed July 10, 2012 via mobile

So the wife and I drove 65 miles from home to enjoy a nice lunch. We have been eating at Shin Jung for years and have NEVER been disappointed to date. The food is great, a little over priced, the service is very nice, and the choices are numerous. If you are looking for a great meal that will want you coming back for more this is the place!!!!

“Do not let the building fool you”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

If you are a person who likes to find out of the mainstream restaurants that have excellent food, then this is it for you. The food is amazing! I had dol sot bi bim bab and I loved it. The portions were large. My husband had the spicy pork and kim chi. He lived in Korea for two years and he was impressed as well. I am so glad we were able to experience this place. I know we will return again.

“Good Korean in a not so good neighborhood”
Reviewed May 13, 2012

The area where this restaurant is located might make one feel a bit scary but the food is good. It is not a localized thing but still authentic. I would recommend to make a reservation in advance because it has not so many tables. And if you would like to have BBQ on the table you should reserve a BBQ table.
