I would recommend this restaurant, the food and service was excellent. Great menu, offering both Korean and Japanese. I had a Kimchi Stew which was to die for (one of today's specials). Great warm meal on a cool day like today. It was worth the...More

Just a great place to eat.....casual and good value. You can order spicy or "not too spicy" and Mom, Dad or Grandma cooks your meal.

Dear Jon, I am curious when you came to visit us. None of our tables during a "sparsely occupied" time have ever waited one hour for their meals. With just a few tables, meals will never take longer than 15 minutes to complete. Unless our...More

Shin La is and has been awesome for over 25 years. It's addictive and delicious. It's healthy and plentiful.
