“Don't miss it!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

If you are looking for authentic, delicious Korean food, you have to try this restaurant!!!

On a personal note to the person ”kinglouix” that wrote that horrible review, you are completely ignorant and frankly racist! Shame in you!

“A hidden gem in Orlando”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

I have been going to Shin Jung for over 8 years now and the food has never disappointed me. I have tried my fair share of Korean food in the past (I have several good friends who are Korean and have tried various Korean restaurants in Orlando and in other cities). Overall, the food at Shin Jung is awesome and the prices are reasonable. Over the years, I have introduced Shin Jun to many friends who have never had Korean food before and for the most part they enjoy it. However, I recently took a co-worker (reviewer Kinglouix) to Shin Jun. He had never stepped foot in a Korean restaurant before so I thought this would be a good experience and good opportunity to introduce this New Yorker to Korean food. Unfortunately, he didn’t enjoy it and wrote an unflattering and exaggerated review of the restaurant. I feel bad for the restaurant for having brought him there. He did not understand Korean food and didn’t know what to expect.

If you have never tried Korean food before, you should try Shin Jung (or any ethnic restaurant) with an open mind. This is a small mom and pop type of restaurant and the exterior of the building is not impressive. However, the Korean BBQ is tasty, the traditional Korean side dishes are an added bonus and comes with the entrees, and the servers are polite. I have tried most of the items on the menu and my personal favorites are the kalbi, kimchi stew (excellent on a cold day over rice), and seafood pancake. Grilling the meat at the table is also cool when you are there with a group of people. Shin Jung is a hidden gem in Orlando.

“It meowed”
1 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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!!!!
