Convenient Korean food

The Michelin- bib rated restaurant is conveniently located at half a block from Macy's, and magically away from all the hustling and bustling. The food is descent, with a special touch on TOFU- the house made tofu is a must try. I went for Sunday lunch and was seated immediately, during the... read more

Never been to a Korean restaurant so when in 'Korea town' you give it a go, and this was the busiest restaurant, which I took as a good sign. Good atmosphere, friendly if hurried staff and, interesting food. I can't say it was bad, maybe just not to my liking, some strange spices and strange textures within the food. An... More

The food is average quality but most items are overpriced ($22 for dolsot bibimbap and nothing special about it). Also the waiter came back demanding more tip. Lots of other korean restaurants near by we'll go elsewhere.

The food is descent, with a special touch on TOFU- the house made tofu is a must try. I went for Sunday lunch and was seated immediately, during the weekdays, expect to wait...something worth waiting for.

Amazing food delivered quickly to the table and a lovely buzzy atmosphere! Just watch out for the pickles which they just give you automatically but then charge $18 for!

Found this place on Yelp while in the city. Always a good sign when as a Westerner you are outnumbered by Asians in an Asian restaurant. Started with the dumplings which my adult son liked more than me. We both chose the bibimbap with bulgogi served in a very hot stone bowl. Very good, very filling.

Ordered appetizers and entrees r but everything was brought out nearly together and they kept rearranging our table disturbing us several times. Totally ruined the experience, the food was okay but I have had better. Felt they just wanted us out, in and out in just over half an hour! Riidiculous when one is looking forward to a nice meal...

This was a family birthday celebration. We had the distinct advantage of a guest who explained the various dishes (and ordered in Korean). The menu has English descriptions of the dishes as well as a separate laminated folder with pictures of the various dishes. I had some difficulty understanding the server, but pointing to the pictures would have worked if... More

It was cold and snowy and I had a craving for some Korean food. This place hit the spot. Was seated right away and staff was friendly/responsive. Lots of menu options for those who want more traditional Korean fare and also for those who prefer more American friendly Bulgogi, etc. They brought a good selection of appetizers (Kim Chee, etc.)...

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.
