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

the best korean food I had so far. But when we asked for recommendations for beer, the waitor pointed to one japanse beer. Later I noticed that it was the most expensive beer on the menu. That is in my view not professional. So I gave very little tip.

We ran in due tto the inclement weather and it looked packed with a 45 min wait. However 2 chairs at the bar became available and we grabbed them and kicked off with some cocktails. Whilst tasty they were on the expensive side for what you got. However, thats where the negativity starts and ends. The first dish to arrive... More

Expensive for Korean, but overall quality is not there. Had the soft tofu soup which I would have expected good ingredients but did not have it for the price you are paying.

Small restaurant, modern atmosphere, small portions of korean cousine with a modern touch. Tofu was amazing. Korean pepper pancake was very good, BBQ wagyu short ribs and fluke sashimi were both excellent. Close to the theater area and opens until late. We went after theater. It was perfect!

I expected so much to visit this Korean restaurant, because the chef of which became popular in Korea this year. Chef Kim was one of three judges on Master Chef Korea Season 3. At the program, he emphasized authenticity of local cuisine and cooking mind for dinners. His review was acclaimed. So when I came to New York, naturally my... More

The service was amazing, the food was delicious. We tried pretty much everything. The Bossam was delightful, the sliders and wings are also incredible. Go and spend lots of money on their tasty food.

The food here is excellent, and very reasonably priced! This was our second visit here, the first being three years ago and we thought they were amazing then, and they still are! We will certainly target Danji on any future visits to Manhattan. (Danji has a Michelin star, and we didn't realize this on our first trip. Go there, and... More

We ate at Danji before going to a Broadway show. It was the perfect place to get light and tasty small plates really quickly. Danji is a casual and small Korean restaurant. There are multiple communal tables (depending on the size of your party). I was impressed by how the restaurant optimized its space. Our server recommended that we order... More
