still one of my favorites

I am reviewing again since there has been a change of chef. One of their best dishes was the fried tofu with chopped scallions and a foamy sauce. This has been changed dramatically. Still tasty but I for one would not have it again. On the other hand the scallion pancake, a delicious Korean treat... read more

This is a good place where to try Korean food. Maybe too spicy and tasty but the ingredients where fresh and good. I really liked the tofu with ginger scallion dressing and the scallion & korean pepper pancake. The place is very small so we had to eat in the communal area. Maybe too noisy. Good price/quality ratio.

The tiny portions and high prices make this place a joke. Plus the shared tables and cramped quarters add injury to insult. If you want Korean go to 32nd Street. Danji is the prime example of an overpriced Asian restaurant that rips off Westerners and Asians who don't know any better. It's a shame this kind of thing is wasting... More

Danji makes the best use of a tiny and narrow establishment however it's too loud, too busy, stool/chairs with low backs and I was seated at the end of a communal table. The hostess stood, the entire meal, at the end of our table, seating people. Many times my chair or body was knocked about. And the conversation between the... More

Very nice little place that served korean tapas. I recommend to order three or four dishes per couple and leave the menu in the table's drawer for another glance at it...Honey chicken wings were really delicious, in fact everybody was ordering these. Waiters & Waitresses was very helpful and attentive. It deserves the Michelin's star.

I think that's how you spell it - good, especially in the extra hot pan to crisp up the rice. It's a small venue but pleasant and bright. would go back for sure

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

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.
