Busy Thursday night.
Service started off slow but friendly. Took awhile to get our drinks. We enjoyed all our dishes especially the Waldorf
Salad, spring rolls and fried chicken. We will be back to try the pizza and another flavour of chicken.

We came here for my moms bday and we brought cupcakes that are her favourite and they were so sweet to bring it out with a candle and ice cream and some Soju for her when the time came. I cant say this will happen for everyone but She is a regular ( been there 4 times) and it was great to see the owner and staff remember her and greet her so well on her birthday from previous interactions. They just made it that much more special which is very much appreciated. 10/10 would recommend

food was great. loved their chicken, loved their pizza.
i think service could’ve been better.
have made the reservation, adding in a special memo of my daughter’s birthday-
though they did acknowledge and wished her happy birthday when they brought out her cake at the end of our meal (that we brought for the event),
i think it would've added a little more special effect if they acknowledged her special day when she walked in or when we were seated so she felt more welcomed and more recognized for her day, it would’ve been much better.

Incredible food! Unfortunately we had to wait 30 mins for our table with a reservation and it was wayyyy too hot in the restaurant! Highly recommend going for the fried chicken, but maybe try a week night so it’s not so busy.

We enjoyed our evening at JinBar - and we were right, the fried chicken in house was about 1000 times better than getting it through takeout which we did last year when JinBar opened. We tried a number of snacks and vegetables which were really tasty, especially the Green Mango Slaw. The fried chicken was really good as were the bulgogi tacos. The only dish that wasn't a win for us was the potato chip and sweet corn pizza. Just odd and not to our taste; we'll try the bulgogi pizza next time. Cocktails we had : JinJin Mule, Guava in my Rum and Kumu Cai... all really interesting and satisfying.

We enjoyed our dinner, but the the restaurant was uncomfortably hot and were told there was nothing they could do to fix it… difficult to have an appetite while sweating, especially for hot fried chicken!

The food was good; those chips are hard to stop eating! The bulgogi pizza was good but didn't really taste like bulgogi - the buldak had more interesting flavor. Brussels sprouts and cauliflower were yummy. The noise really ruined it for us. It was just too loud. We were sitting in a corner and still had to yell to be heard across a little table. The music volume got turned down after a while so then it was just loud, not unbearably loud.

BEST FRIED CHICKEN PIZZA!
I love Jinbar fried chicken (JFC)! It is the best tasting fried chicken with crispy skin and juicy and flavourful meat. The beef bulgogi pizza has a nice crust and great savoury taste.

The menu has been expanded since my last dine-in experience. Tried some new items - cheese buldak spring roll (3 per order), broccoli Waldorf salad and pounded cucumber. The spring roll is somewhat spicy, but the cheese tames the heat so it’s not overwhelming. The broccoli salad with sesame aioli was a nice follow up to the spring roll. The pounded cucumber was crunchy and had a great chili soy dressing. All of this food was shared for 2 people, and we were quite full and satisfied. My only regret was being so full that I couldn’t try any dessert! Will definitely be going back.
It was nice to see the restaurant was busy on a Wednesday evening.

Finally got to try this spot out after wanting to try for a very long time. The vibe was cool but the service unfortunately was terrible. We had to ask three times to get our drinks refilled & our side dish was forgotten when the chicken arrived. After reminding the server, our side finally arrived, but we were finished our meal. Our table was completely neglected, until it was time to clear up the tab. Then the service was swift…

While the chicken itself was definitely some of the most tasty we’ve ever had, it’s was served warm at best.

Because the food was good, we gave it three stars, but the poor service was not one we will return to JinBar for.

Busy place with attentive staff. Very happy we had a reservation too as they had to turn people away. Korean fusion that was delicious from appetizers to pizza. The chicken was spicy and flavourful, the cauliflower was cooked perfect as were the potato chips. Drinks were tasty too.

We'd heard a lot about this place and wanted to try it out. Despite making a reservation we were seated at an awkward table in the middle of the room. We asked for another table and were seated directly in front of the pizza oven and prep area for delivery orders -- which was even worse. I know it's a small place, but there are some places where tables shouldn't be set up. Atmosphere was quite noisy (it was busy and the music was loud), food was good, price was as expected. Will we be back? Probably, but maybe we'll wait til patio season next time.

The food was amazing!! We had the mango slaw, chicken sandwich and honey butter pizza. Everything was delicious! The service was disappointing. We got our drinks and food and no one came back to our table after that. We didn't get a second drink or even a water refill and had to flag someone down to get our bill. Luckily the food was awesome so it wasn't a total bust.

Have been wanting to try this place for awhile now since I always pass by it on the way to work.

DID NOT DISAPPOINT! A big thank you to our server who recommended the pulled pork tacos, it was one of the stars of the night! Everything we tried was super good and it was all for a good price as well! The food wasn’t too heavy, so every last bite was enjoyable

Definitely need to come back again to try more tacos, as well as their chicken! Thanks to the team for a wonderful night!
