After a random search on the net for some Korean food, we chanced upon this place and decided to give it a try. Comfort food for a cold cold weather. Authentic and not westernized. A lot of Korean diners there and the staff are all Koreans too. Would want to come back here again before I leave NJ!

This Korean Restaurant is great. The seafood pancake and Korean BBQ are extremely delicious. however the ventilation is not quite good. You would get a lot of BBQ smell after you finish your meal there. In Summary, I would say the food is good, but condition is okay. It's worth a try =)

I am not very knowledgable about Korean cuisine and went there on a friend's recommendation. Staff were helpful and guided our choices to suit our palettes. I found the food really good and liked the ambience of the charcoal grill right on the table. BYOB and reasonably priced make it good value.

I have been here before and this time I came here with a group of people. The service here is very good. The waiters and waitresses here are very attentive. They frequent the table to make sure that you still have tea/water in your glass. I enjoy the unlimited *appetizers* very much. A wide range of small dishes for you... More

Very high-quality Korean food. We have had Korean BBQ at highly rated places in Manhattan Korea town and the food here is just as good, if not better. They use charcoal instead of gas, which makes the BBQ extra-tasty. BBQ is a must, but the food from the kitchen is also excellent. Service has been variable at times, but was... More

We love Kimchi Hana; and have eaten here for many years. They have excellent yook je jang (spicy meat soup with cellophane noodles, my favorite), kimchi pork, seafood pancakes, and ojingo bokum (spicy squid). The dishes are very authentic, and the heat level is not reduced for non-Korean customers. Of course they start with several small dishes of vegetables, including... More

They burnt our Korean bbq when I went. There were a lot of side dishes. It's a very homey feel to it. The people that work there are a family I think. It seems like it. There a lot of Koreans and even non Koreans that go to this restaurant.

We have been dining at kimchi Hana's for over 20 years. Very good authentic Korean food, compatible to the Korean district in manhattan. Actually, their seafood pancake is still the best. The place is in need of updating, looks the same as 20+ years ago. The only reason I gave them 4 stars is because their service in never friendly... More
