“Our new fave for Korean BBQ!”
Review of Shin Chon

Shin Chon
Ranked #28 of 178 Restaurants in Ellicott City
Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 January 2018

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 they can seat many people. If you dont want BBQ, they have tables for you as well.

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!

The food is decent. Lunch bento boxes are good choices (though not cheap). But the service is SLOW. We never came in the weekends, even during weekday lunch hours (and the restaurant was only half full), we waited long to be seated, and long before the orders were taken. There seemed to be only 2 waiters and one also serves as the cashier. I thought maybe they were understaffed that day, but after having been back for a couple more times, I still saw only one waiter taking the order. Only come here if you have time to kill. The food is good but not quite worth the wait if you value time.
