We ordered from Shinmi for my daughter's 1st birthday (dol) last week. It was my first time trying them out, but I decided to give them a try based on the positive reviews I saw here on Yelp. I'm glad I did. Most importantly, the food was delicious. We received many compliments from our guests, all who are very familiar with Korean catering. My personal favorites were the galbi jjim (tender and yum) and the sesame leaf beef mini pancakes. I also appreciate that they were flexible with substituting several of the items with my preferences. I'm not sure if this was a mistake, but they actually gave me the dishes I wanted and the ones I wanted replaced, which my guests enjoyed! At first I wasn't sure about serving food from aluminum trays but I also didn't want to replatter everything on top of all the other details involved with executing a dol party. When I called and asked about this, they told me that they would arrange everything nicely in the aluminum trays- they really did, which I found very helpful. Caroline & her mom were really easy to work with so don't let the grandma's rude phone manners deter you from here. The price was right (we didn't negotiate it down), the food was delicious, pickup of our food was a breeze, and they presentation was nice. Overall, we are very pleased and won't hesitate ordering from them again.
