As a send off for my oldest daughter (college) she requested we go to Shin Chon Garden. We have been there before and enjoyed it. My sister and her husband--not adventurous--wanted to be apart of the party so reluctantly joined us. We ended up having...More

My son and I have been twice on his visits home and find it quite reasonable as to quality and price. The bon chan and salad were as expected, and the quality of the meat was quite good.

Cant believe this place does not have 5 stars. It is not cheap but it is absolutely delicious Korean BBQ. Great meat and sides. Good service. Can be a long wait but well worth it

The food is excellent and the staff are very friendly! There are a number of Korean BBQ places in this area but most have just 5 or 6 tables set up for BBQ. Shin Chon has 13 so there is never a long wait and...More

Delicious food! Fresh, cooked right in front of you! Very authentic. Comes with many sides. The only downside is that it is VERY busy-- expect to wait, even if you have a reservation!
