Great Korean food on the Upper West Side

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... read more

Just about a block away from the show, "Book of Mormon," this 50-seat restaurant specializes in creative, eco-friendly dishes bursting with texture contrasts and flavors.The hostess said they don't take reservations; they use an app (forgot what it's called) that charges you $15 to make a reservation (there was a party of four there that used it). We three got... More

Really enjoyed the food here! The restaurant is pretty small so do book in advance if you don't want to wait long! We had the tofu, fried rice for two and and bulgogi sliders! I thought the best one was the bulgogi cause the meat was tender and it was really well made. The service was also really good. Would... More

The restaurant is very close to the Times Square, it was convenient to dine there before our Broadway show. They don`t take reservation unless you are a group of 6 or more. This was not an issue as we were the first customers, just before the opening hour which is around 17:30. The restaurant is very small and cozy with... More

We had a 1:45 hour wait to get to the Top of the Rock just a few blocks away, and decided to try our luck walking over to Danji just a few blocks away. We definitely made a lucky choice. Plenty of free tables - but then it was only 5:20 in the afternoon. After 5:45 it was packed. The... More

We stopped in here to try something new. We came early as we were heading to Carnegie Hall that night. Our wait staff was very attentive. They checked to make sure we didn't have any allergies or theatre time commitments. We started with the spicy wings. They were wonderful, but I really loved the pickled jalapeños that came with them.... More

We had lunch at Danji last week - and liked it so much we went back for dinner the next day. The food is very good, and we enjoyed everything, but the menu is a bit limited. The food served for dinner was very much like the lunch menu, except they'd raised the prices... Still a very good experience, and... More

Had read so many great reviews that we decided to go here on our last night, I have never had Korean food before so tapas style sounded a great place to start. The restaurant itself was nice, good atmosphere and our waitress was brilliant - explaining the dishes, suggesting how many to have etc, but the food was just a... More

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

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.
