Delicious food. The crispy rice cake and honey butter chips were probably our favourite…hard to pick though! It was great to try something new and be happy that we did!

Service was incredibly slow, had to ask a server to take our food order after waiting over an hour. Food was oily, nothing to write home about.

I really wanted to like this more. I loved the atmosphere and our server was excellent but the food fell very short. The chicken chips were drowned in seasoning. The honey chips looked like Lays chips drenched in honey and were sticky and strange. The mango slaw was ok but small and over dressed. I did like the beef taco though. My cocktails were good but small for the money.

It's their fried chicken that I went back for. We ordered the boneless fried chicken thigh (original) along with the Dill Garlic Roasted Cauliflower. As it turned out, the cauliflower paired very well with the super crispy lightly battered fried (absolutely no grease) chicken. This is the best fried chicken that I've tasted for a long time.
The service was great and the ambience is bright and pleasant.

Food and atmosphere was great. This was our first time there. I was very disappointed though when our waitress asked us to leave as our table was booked. To be fair, we were there for a couple of hours, but did not expect to be ‘kicked out’. We ordered many appetizers, chicken and 2 bottles of wine. I wish we were told ahead of time there was a time limit.

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.
