LOVED our meal at Jin Bar! We ordered the fried chicken sandwich and gluten free fried chicken - both were delicious. You couldn’t tell that the GF was GF, it was that good! It’s in a beautiful heritage building, with every safety precaution in mind- plexiglass dividers, sanitizing, etc. We felt very safe. We finished off with the soft serve- big thumbs up! We’ll be coming back for sure

As it was our first time, we let Nathaniel run the show. Everything he suggested, including parlays like “make sure you keep the sauce from this dish because it goes great with this other one” were fantastic. The chili chicken and half’n’half buldak/bulgogi pizza were real highlights.

Wow! The food was incredible. We loved the fried chicken sandwich, fried chicken and bulgogi pizza! The love and dedication of Chef Jin really shows through her food!

The only downfall to our experience was our server. It was our first time so we wanted to know what the the popular items were and etc but it seemed like he was in a rush and just wanted to take the order right away. We could tell that he was a bit overwhelmed. We wanted to order all of our food because we were hungry, but he insisted on only getting our drink orders in the mean time. As soon as my drink was served, I knew something was off. I ordered Prosecco and was given white wine instead after I asked him before he poured it if it was indeed Prosecco, he said yes. Anyway, I could go on but it doesn’t matter, my service experience will definitely not stop me from coming back again. The food itself was divine! Can’t wait to come back and hopefully experience better service this time.

What a fantastic date night. The food was amazing. A little concerned at first as we've been doing NOOM (lost 30 lbs)... what an amazing place to treat yourself to a few extra calories 😉. The Korean Fried Chicken was amazing. HOT and Thai Chili flavours for us... spectacular! The chicken skin (chicharron) was hot, melt in your mouth decadence. Then Cauliflower in RED THAI CURRY & PARMESAN!!! We ended up ordering TWO! I ate the sauce like soup! Cocktails were so well done! Congrats to all. Great night! Great restaurant! Thx Patrick... great service! We will 100% be back. Just take a great walk when you get home... 😉

Been here before. 3rd visit. Food is always excellent. Pickled vegetables, Bruxelles sprouts, fries and the chicken (savory for us) of course! D3 ent beers on tap and the cocktails are good. Service was not slow, but inattentive this time around. Jinhee wasn’t working that night so maybe her stand in Manager needs to look after that when she’s not in. Still, we’ll be back. No biggie.

We loved the chicken, but we needed more veggies. We ordered the cole slaw but it’s too small for sharing. You need two.

Would go back to try the pizza.

Ambience is wonderful. So was the service!

Food here is consistently excellent. You NEED to go here if you haven’t yet. Chicken is perfectly crispy outside, tender and juicy inside with fantastic flavor. The pizza is incredible. We are Izzy people and this is a legit top contender against any pie in town including Noble, Connie amd John’s and Pizzaface. Poutine was also mouthwateringly good. Seriously. Hit this place up. Service is second to none to top it all off.

We LOVE the food here, the quality and flavour is excellent. We had primarily enjoyed the Jin Fried chicken at home via takeout so we were very excited to dine in and access the full menu and were not disappointed! Great service, perfect Friday night ambience and delicious food ... we’re already planning our next visit!!

Their bulgogi pizza is a MUST TRY! This is out second time coming here and the crust is soooo addicting (especially when dipped in their jalapeño cream cheese dip). Service and ambiance were both wonderful as always :)

I really loved the chicken but felt like it was a little expensive considering at the end of the day it’s fried chicken. Our bill was over 200 for 4 people and we didn’t go overboard with food. The tuna crudo was also great and I’d get that again. Fries were good. This kind of food is something I would get every now and again, not really weekly. I think the concept will be difficult to pull off in the long run and I wish them luck. I recommend this restaurant and will return.
