We went to benjia as a group of 4 at 9pm, the food was good and prices mod to high (100 rmb for meat and 70 rmb for cooked entrees). Before we even got halfway through our meal we were asked to pay. I wasn't expecting such poor service given the pricepoint and internationally reclaimed chef restaurant. Given the many... More

As a Korean myself, I'd say this is a quite authentic Korean restaurant in Shenzhen. Strongly recommend the high quality beef for barbeque (don't remember the exact name, but it's 175rmb/serving). The cabbage, carrots and other vegetable the restaurant serves came in a long plate, and they were very fresh as well. I like the ginseng chicken soup as well... More

Benjia used to be my favorite korean in town. In the beginning it was absolutely amazing. But things have changed. Even the side dishes taste soso, except for the salad with great sesame dressing. The kimchi has no taste. The dishes are still kind of ok, but not worth the extra money you pay compared to other koreans. There is... More

When your wife is Korean you know you have to try to find the best Korean restaurant in any new area. We found this restaurant using TripAdvisor and we must say it was worth doing the research and taking a 20-minute taxi ride. After some searching we finally found the restaurant. It is a little bit difficult to find because... More

If you are looking to get your Korean BBQ fix, Benjia is the place you need to go. It is located in Huanlehaian, so you will need to take a taxi to get there. It the place that has the IMAX movie theater and the water laser shows. There are tons of restaurant, bar, and club options here, so if... More

Our good friends from Korea invited us to dinner at Benjia. We enjoyed a fabulous meal! We avoided a long wait by arriving early. If we arrived latter than 5:30 the queue may have been an hour or more. Some very nice Korean artifacts in the lobby area. The restaurant was clean and the staff were very helpful. Enjoyed having...

Both times with friends, both times very delicious! Large portions of different vegetables included. Just try a bit of everything, from beef, to soup, to vermicelli, you won't regret it!

For a traveler this is a unique restaurant. Menus are in multiple languages so ordering is not difficult if you don't speak Chinese. Food is cooked right at your table with plenty of sides to accommodate. Beef is very good and beer is served cold. I challenge you to walk away hungry.

If you are looking for authentic Korean food in Shenzhen, Benjia is the the place to go. Long queues are formed every day, especially during dinner time. The trick is to go during off peak hours as the restaurant operates throughout the day. 2 servings of BBQ meat had to be ordered per table (but chicken meat is not available,... More
