This place is a unique experience. When you walk in, and give them your name for your reservation (because you really need to call first and make a reservation at least 1-2 weeks in advance especially thursday-saturday) you will be prompted to remove your shoes. They put them away for you and have a filing system to know which table... More

My daughter, who is vegan, had been to Hangawi once and highly recommended it for dinner when we came to NYC. I would like to be vegan but don't like many of the foods that vegans eat, and my husband prefers meat, but the reviews raved about the food so we decided to try it. It was definitely one of...

From the minute you walk in the door and remove your shoes in a zen like setting you are on your way to entering a quiet paradise from the hustle and bustle of NYC. The food is amazing, the staff friendly, and whoever you take with will be telling everybody they know about this place. A true gem of NYC.

We finally had a chance to visit Hangawi after our family in NYC has been raving about it for years! We were thoroughly impressed by the beautiful ambiance, prompt service and amazing food. Presentation and plating made the food look even more exotic, and it certainly tasted great...where else can you get vegan kimchi?? We ordered quite a few dishes... More

From the minute you walk in to how your food is served, to the quality of the food and flavours - amazing, amazing and amazing. As a vegetarian it is so difficult to find good places to eat. This place was just so good. So gutted there isn't one in London!

One of the best Korean restaurants in NYC, if not the best. The location is beautiful, very quiet, elegant and the food...oh my god the food! Special mention for the dumplings, they really are something special. I'm getting hungry only thinking about them! I would recommend to anyone, even non-vegeterians! MUST GO!

We arrived on a Sunday at 5pm without a reservation and was seated promptly. Everything about this place was Zen, elegant and relaxing. I kicked off my shoes at the door and got cozy at the dinner table. Once seated I was transformed into a world of vegan bliss. The tofu vegetables in brown sauce was scrumptious. Our waitress was...

A very nice and Zen like interior, with fresh vegetarian fare. Try the stone bowl dishes and the kale pancakes. You do have to take your shoes off so make sure you wear socks that won't embarrass you.

Two years ago I fell deeply in love with the most amazing woman in the world! We enjoyed one of our first dates at Hangawi. She opened my eyes to the Vegan way and I searched and found Hangawi, the most amazing dining experience!
