About us

Jin Ju is a contemporary Korean restaurant, located in the eclectic Andersonville neighborhood of Chicago.  We have proudly been serving customers since November 2001.  We call ourselves contemporary because  we wanted to offer guests traditional Korean dishes in a modern atmosphere where either the novice or someone very familiar with Korean Cuisine would be comfortable and have an amazing experience.  We’ve made sure that our staff is fully knowledgeable of the menu so they can guide you through your dinner and make it the best.  Our room is dimly lit with lots of candlelight and we always have great ambiant music playing so at first glance, we may not look like a typical Korean restaurant, but our menu is authentically Korean with just a couple of twists thrown in.

We’ve also developed a fun and unique cocktail list featuring our famous Sojutinis, from our refreshing O.E. (cucumber), to the popular Asian Pear or Jinjer just to mention a few.  You’ll be sure to find your favorite!  If Sojutinis aren’t your thing, we have a Wine List customized to enhance your Korean experience.  There are also great Korean Beers, Wines, Sake and of course Soju for you to try.

Whether you’re looking for a romantic place for two or a fun destination for your group, stop by or call for a reservation at Jin Ju and experience Chicago’s Contemporary Korean Restaurant & Bar.
