Superb!!

Great price and excellent food. We ordered half of the menu and every dish tastes very good. Ideal for people who want to try a cheaper Asian Michelin star restaurant.

I was really excited to visit Danji on a recent trip to NYC, as I had read such amazing reviews. It's safe to say I was expecting big things! However, unfortunately the experience proved to be a bit of a let down. We booked our table for two for 8pm on a Monday evening. However, on arrival we were told... More

One my go to spots in Hell's Kitchen. The food here is excellent! I usually go with their tasting menu which is very reasonably priced and lets you sample all the best dishes. The portions are generous. You will feel full at the end of the meal but if not you can always top up from the a la carte... More

So, this isn't the best review to read unless your'e a vegetarian or traveling with one, which I was. My mom doesn't eat meat, and although Danji has options, they were good, but I think the meat plates were probably the best bet there. we had the leek pancake which was tasty and very filling. The tofu small plate was... More

What a delight! Shared a wonderful evening with students and friends...one of which was Korean. The staff was very accomdating, even though one of our part was detained. The service was timely and efficient. The music was eclectic and current, a plus for this young crowd. The food was inventive and simply delicious. Everyone agreed that not one dish was... More

Whether you're planning for dinner or small plates and cocktails at the bar, this spot - small, intimate, classy - consistently delivers. Enjoyed the yellowfin sashimi and spicy wings on my recent visit. Began the evening with a tasty spicy ginger margarita. The staff will welcome you warmly. The location makes it great for pre- or post-theater dining.

We wanted something different after the theater so my adult children and I ventured into this small, spotless, cool spot that features tapas style eating - not the usual Korean NY fare. We let the waitress guide us on selections - which were all awesome, and by dinner's end we were all satisfied and full. We shared 6 dishes and... More

Very lucky to grab a table without a booking for an amazing introduction to Korean fusion. Made to feel very welcome, very nice wine served at perfect temperature and the most fantastic tasting menu in which every dish was beautifully presented and delicious. Considering coming back to New York just to revisit!

Delicious Korean food with great service made this one of our favourite restaurants on our NYC trip. The garlic honey wings are to die for while the beef sliders were bursting with flavour. A small restaurant bit with fantastic service. Highly recommended.

The restaurant is billed as Korean tapas. As a single diner on this occasion coul only fit in one "small" and one "medium" since portions are large. I had the KFC (Korean Fiery Chicked) wings which were excellent. However they were surpassed by the really great shrimp and scallion pancake. Nice service and I enjoyed it so much I booked... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
