Went to Danji after the theatre on Broadway. Excellent tapas style menu of modern and traditional Korean dishes. We started with Ginger Margaritas and also had a very geed Soju (like Sake but lighter and made from potatoes). We shared a Whelk (Snails) with boba noodles, spicy "KFC" chicken wings, a Scallion Pankake, spicy Octopus, Sable Black Cod and a... More

Everyone was talking about the sliders, so I ordered both - Bulgogi beef sliders spicy pickled cucumber & scallion salsa, and the Spicy pork belly sliders scallions, cucumber julienne &... More

Quite possibly the best dining experience I have ever had. The food was all so tasty. The spicy wings were the best chicken wings I have ever had in my life. The beef and pork belly sliders were excellent, amazing spice on pork belly sliders. The egg rice was so good that even though my fiance and I were both... More

We were not looking for this restaurant, we were just a hungry walkers, suddenly we saw this restaurant, looks good, not too much people (6:30 pm), as soon as we jump in we knew that magic is inside. What an exceptional evening, the egg rice, too many flavors for a simple rice was incredible, the " bulgogi not sure about... More

My wife and I quickly scored two great seats at the bar for a recent dinner, and we really enjoyed an exceptional evening! The bartender took wonderful care of us, offering helpful recommendations and generously allowing us to taste unfamiliar beverages. We settled on Dassai 50 sake, one of the better reasonably-priced sakes we've tasted. We selected five small plates... More

We visited Danji on a Friday night. We were there early so that we could get a table as the restaurant does not take reservations for smaller parties and it is quite small. We arrived at around 5:30pm and were seated promptly. The place is super cute and the service was great. We ordered 4 dishes between the two of... More

Delicious Korean food with a couple misses. I came here with two of my girlfriends for dinner on a Thursday night and luckily we came early so we were able to get seated rather quickly. We were stuck at the communal table, but still had a great time and hopefully we didn't bother the people next to us with all... More

Danji is a small Korean restaurant that is somewhat off the beaten track in 52nd street between 8th and 9th Avenues, and it is a gem that I would never have discovered if not for my Lonely Planet. If you’re reading this review and have never been, put it on your list of restaurants to take a look at. Quite... More
