I've been here on both my trips to NYC. I love it. It's delicious, fancy, but low key. I absolutely love the food, the atmosphere and everything.

I reserved through Open Table, which put three of us at the bar, so Esther called the Thursday before to check if that was okay. We decided it was, but then we added another person (panic!), but when we arrived they were able to seat us at a table. So accommodating! And this other guy there was so nice, too--I... More

Visited Danji on a recent trip to NYC. We went for the Chefs tasting menu. OMG it was a tasting sensation. Seven courses all served beautifully and with perfect timing. Not too soon and not slow. The KFC (Korean Fried Chicken) left my lips tingling. The sweet pork wrapped in cucumber was sooo juicy. The highlight for me though was... More

Service ok, although the order the plates arrived was random. We had 4 different plates an all very tasty an interesting... More

This was the worst place we visited in our week in NYC. The place is very small, cramped and unattractive -- kind of a hole in the wall. If the food and price are good, I really don't care about the surroundings, however, this was definitely not the case. We ordered an order of chicken wings. There were 4 wings... More

Very authentic Korean food rather served in an innovative way. Portions are small. Its a 36 seating restaurant but service was rather slow with 2 waiters. Out of 3 kinds of beer, one particupar beer i ordered wasn't available. Considering the buzz, i was disapointed overall except at the quality of food.

My wife and I went there for dinner on a date night while on a family vacation. We had the tasting menu for two, everything we had was great, very interesting taste and all portions had some twist to them, a mix of flavors or textures that mad the entire dinner experience very surprising and delightful.

We visited this restaurant early evening so were able to get a table without a reservation. We had the tasting menu which was all delicious. Highlights were the chicken wings and beef sliders! They were very accommodating of my dairy intolerance and service was excellent throughout. Definitely recommended.

What an outstanding, small Korean restaurant! We had no reservations, but they were able to fit our party of 4 in between reservations with only a 10 minute wait. The menu consists of small appetizer items or a tasting menu (per person price). The appetizers feed 2-3 comfortably, and let me tell you they were absolutely wonderful! The blend of... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
