Not your typical Korean which makes it great! Kim Bap Te Gim and Dak Bulgogi. Done! Try the Cass beer. Will be returning for a 4th time.

I absolutely love Jin Ju. Great atmosphere, interesting food and always a great experience. Try the soju martinis for a real treat.

Amazing! I love Korean, and Jin Ju is perfect. The pork belly appetizer was so well seasoned and delicious, and the spare ribs entree was fantastic! Also the kimchee was super fresh tasting, and very good. On top of all of it, our server, Rowan, was incredibly friendly, and the atmosphere of the restaurant is very cool. Don't miss! Great...

I was afraid to try Korean food, because I thought it would be too spicy for me. Well, Jin Ju has plenty of non-spicy appetizers and entrees that are awesome. But, they also have plenty of spicy options for my friends and family who like it hot. Even though it's a pretty far drive from our house, this is my... More

It was a good Korean Bar-B-Q. The spicy was not as spicy as I would like. The Chicken dish I ordered was very good, and so was the seafood dish my wife had. It was our first time there, and our waiter took extra time to answer every question about the menu items, talk us through what we should expect,... More

Not a huge fan of traditional Korean restaurants, but this place is not traditional. Fantastic apps (mandoo and sam gyup sal) and entrees (dol sut bi bim bap and kalbi). I actually like the kim chee as well. Unique twist on Korean. Great flavor!

I am Korean and I'm telling you, this is fantastic Korean food! The service is great and the staff was extremely nice. One time I was there the owner even gave us free muscles for being regulars. The pours are generous, so good I don't even think I could carry the drink over to the table without spilling. My favorite... More

This is a popular place and I would recommend reservations for sure. The staff is very attentive and fun. They don't rush you either. The drinks are excellent... The food is very good but portions are a bit lack luster for the price. Overall though we were very happy with our whole meal and plan on coming back.
