“One of the best Korean restaurants in Singapore”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

Chang's appears to be one of Koreans' favorite restaurants in Singapore, and for good reason. Food is quite authentic, and the restaurant is full of Koreans - both staff and customers, always a good sign. We ordered kalbi and and Korean fatty bacon, along with it all comes with (the usual Korean sides). It could have easily been downtown Seoul. The wait staff was very attentive, very helpful. This is on the Dempsey Road corridor of restaurants, so a bit out of the way - but well worth the journey. A bit pricey, though - roughly US$150 for dinner for four. We rushed through a Sunday family lunch but it might be better for a weekend dinner when you have time for multiple servings, Korean beer/soju, you name it. If you need Korean food in Singapore, go for this one - just make sure you figure out your transportation in advance if you're not driving.

“Great Group Atmosphere Setting With Pretty Good Cuts”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

We went here the other night with some friends. Layout and setting was very good for having great social dinner. T

Food was solid for Korean BBQ, we had some chicken and a few different cuts of beef. All of which were solidly good.

Service was decent, nothing stood out for good or bad on it.

Price was to be expected for being in Singapore at Dempsey (meaning higher then what use to in other countries but it is what is)

“Exceptional service”
Reviewed 19 January 2014 via mobile

The manager Jenny (Jung Jung Rey) runs a fabulous restaurant. I understand it has been under new management for 9 months or so. The food is very authentic and the service is extremely good. Very unlike Singapore service! I have visited half a dozen times in the past 6 months and we will continue to return. Great location too.

“Chang or Shang?”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

Over the years, we've never experienced a bad meal at Chang, but we've never had any memorable dish either. We've had great pajeon (spring onion pancakes), soups, bibimbap, even nangmyon (cold noodles) at some Korean restaurants in Seoul or the US - the versions here are all OK-to-good, but nothing special. The soups are particularly disappointing, given how addictive some Korean soups can be. If you come to Chang, it's for the BBQ. Here, it's done with charcoal (most Korean restaurants do it on gas grills), so the meat is flavorful. However, you should ask the waiters to slow down, as they tend to grill the meat far too quickly; you hardly have the time to finish a bottle of soju! The décor is simple and elegant, with private rooms and sit-on-floor dining areas, so lots of Korean patrons - corporate entertainment and families eating out - a good sign. Incidentally, Chang Korean BBQ is located next to Shang Antiques shop, but doesn't serve Beer Chang ;)

“Pretty authentic”
Reviewed 8 September 2013 via mobile

Two of us ate here on Saturday night when we had a Korean barbeque craving. We were not disappointed. The cuts of meat were good, the kitchen spot on and the crowd boisterous. They could do with more staff (an ongoing issue in Singapore these days) but it did feel a bit like being in Seoul. We will be going back.
