Ju Shin Jung 주신정 Korean BBQ Buffet – Guillemard, Singapore


To be honest, I didn’t know about this Korean restaurant and I heard they have 3 outlets already in Singapore. Originated from Korea, I understand they have only just one flagship restaurant there. Nevertheless, they are doing well over in Singapore.

My god brother brought me to this place at Guillemard Road, where the Singapore Badminton Hall is and learnt from the Korean manageress that they moved there from their former place at East Coast. Ju Shin Jung(주신정), if I can remember correctly, means ‘from the heart’, which is what this restaurant chain sets out to do; good service and food from the heart. <3<3<3

This premise has lots of space, and even private rooms for private parties. Staffs are a mix of different nationalities of Koreans, Filipinos, Chinese Nationals, etc., which I believe some are students doing part-time work and the Korean lady boss also helping in the serving of guests. Although a buffet place, they do have ala carte options for those who don’t wanna indulge in loads of BBQ meats and stuff themselves silly. I might try their Ginseng Chicken next time I’m back… need to 补补身体! (rejuvenate in chinese)

Meats are about 0.8-1cm thick. Don't cook too long or else tough.

Mushrooms should grill upwards and once cooked, there's some natural mushroom 'soup' within, cool it a little before popping into your mouth! Yums!

Rating: 4.5/5.

Taste: 4/5. Meats are ok but the pork belly’s skin is a little tough. Maybe have to grill longer? Tofu soup could improve a little on taste.

Portion: N.A. Buffet…

Service: 5/5. They will always make sure you’re taken care of. But a little short handed.

Ambience: 4/5. Bright and spacious. BBQ place come out sure smell like some smoked meats.

Price: S$35++ for dinner.

RTE: Yes!

Location: 100 Guillemard Rd, Singapore Badminton Hall. Tel: 6440 7707. Reservations recommended.
