Always great

We go through Danji at least once every time we are in New York. It's one of our favorites. The drinks are great and well balanced. The food is interesting an inventive. We particularly love to tofu, the bossum, and the Kim chi selection.

Before I visited, I have heard this restaurant from others several times. So my family had been all excited. In conclusion, Danji is under our expectation because we had expected the greatest dishes. We ordered a lot dishes. Most dishes had good taste, but as we are foodies, Danji's dishes were focused on the food styling(display). For example, Galbi Jjim(... More

This was my first meal in New York and it did not disappoint. The welcome was warm and the staff were attentive throughout without being invasive. I had pork belly sliders and black cod and they were simply delicious. The first bite of the sliders nearly made me cry it was so good...and I eat a lot of nice food!... More

You should come here expecting amazing, fresh, and slightly off the beaten path Korean food in this little hole in the wall place. You should not come here expecting to pay a modest price for the food. I sought Danji out specificallyl during our recent trip to NYC, after reading about the chef in the New York Times. It was...

Great place, very nice vibe, super friendly staff and very interesting food. I wouldn't say I was blown away by the food but the concept and dishes felt very authentic and nothing like I have tasted before although admittedly I don't have much experience in Korean food. The wines by the glass were very good.

We ate here on our last night in NYC and it was well worth the wait. The food is absolutely delicious and incorporate the tastiest flavours, especially the tofu and pancakes. The menu is really well thought out and the food is presented beautifully. Also the restaurant's decor is gorgeous and the service is great. Just make sure you get... More

Danji is in many ways the epitome of the urban and hip 21st century restaurant; sophisticated, ecologically responsible and health oriented. Basically a hole in the wall with an unassuming facade the place is smaller than the average American garage and can easily be missed. But do not, this place is a treat that serves food on Michelin star level... More

I've tried Danji for dinner three times now, and each visit was a hit. The smart young staff is exceedingly friendly. Every dish I've tried has been excellent. The small dining room is comfortable and attractive. Danji is often described as upscale creative Korean, which is spot on. Stand out small plates from my last visit were spicy yellowtail sashimi...

You walk out of Danji feeling you have had the best tastes in New York. YOur taste buds have been stimulated in an extraordinary fashion by everything you eat here: we had scallion pancakes-totally original and amazing; corn soup with delicious dumplings, beef sliders and gorgeous ginger margaritas. Everything top of the line. come early or make a reservation for... More

Is this an Oxymoron?? Jumbo Shrimp, parking in the driveway, driving on parkway and Korean tapas? When you go to a Korean restaurant, they load you up with as many small plates or tapas to get the munch party started. Small dishes of pickles, Kimchee and noodles, they keep bringing you back more and more. Have an article written up... 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.
