Chang Korean Charcoal BBQ Restaurant Review

Chang Korean Charcoal BBQ Restaurant is located at Dempsey Hill – the place where you can find many fine dining restaurants in Singapore, which is located near Orchard and Holland Districts. Shuttle Bus Service are available are different pick-up points of Orchard.

The interior of the restaurant has pretty good ambience.

Traditional Korean wooden floor seats are available if you come in a big group. There are also nice cosy rooms available.The best seats are probably along the windows. It gives a sense of serenity. Probably the restaurant is named after their excellent window view as “Chang” – from the word “창문 (窓門)” , which means window.

Many of the staff here has above average service. However, some non-Korean waitresses couldn’t understand me when I asked for “Gochujang”.

Ambience: 8.5 / 10
Service: 7 /10
