After reading all the awesome reviews on this place, I finally stopped by for lunch! I made a first pass through the buffet and picked out about 1 of each item for half the buffet. I considered the stewed tofu and seafood or the kimbap but decided to stick to the buffet for the day. I was a little surprised... More

Woorijip serves tasty, quality Korean food (lunchboxes with rice, kimbap, noodles, soup...) prepacked in boxes to take away. There is also a lunch and dinner buffet with several options, to be paid by weight. The restaurant is clean and the cashiers are friendly. Compared to Western European pricings, the food is incredibly cheap. Come early, because the place may become... More

I am not an expert on Korean food whatsoever but I do got a good palate. This is not much of restaurant it's more like a eat-and-go kind of "deli" that it's mostly used by employees of local businesses. The food is nonetheless good. The buffet is limited which is a good thing because you are not overwhelm with choices.... More

I had a chance to grab a quick lunch here with friends on a recent photo shoot in Manhattan. Being a neophyte to the cuisine, I was carefully coached in my selections. The buffet was diverse and interesting and I enjoyed everything that I chose - especially the vegetables. The meal was inexpensive and fast. The ambience is very plain,... More

We read so many great reviews for this restaurant while we were in town, so we decide to give it a try. We were optimistic after entering the restaurant, seeing how busy it was, and taking a gander at the buffet. We each filled our little boxes of many different items, to give it all a try. Out of the... More

this is one of the most convenient places to get lunch in koreatown. most of the food are prepacked and during the day, there are times at which they will serve a buffetstyle one, where you put the food in a box and they weigh it. This place is to be better before, but it is still nice today.

I am a big fan of Korean cuisine. Unfortunately in Portugal we don't have any Korean restaurants and when I was in New York, Korean Town is my paradise :D I tried Woorijip for the first time in 2009. The take out food is very cheap and they provide a variety of hot and cold dishes. The last time I... More

The food are generally replenished frequently, so it doesn't feel like picking through leftovers. The best part is they open late - perfect for quick bites after a late night karaoke brawl! They have a good variety of hot and cold prepared food (the self-serve counter is weighed at check-out), and the prices are very reasonable.

The hot buffet was already closed when we arrived but there was plenty hot and cold dishes in to go containers in the back. The food was more like Korean fast food, not as good as the fresh stuff but still hit the spot. Kimchi fried rice and the noodle dish was good and so is the bimbap (Korean sushi... More

This place really works like clockwork. Food is put up hot and piping in glass displays or served up ina buffet style format where you can pick up your korean favorites and put them in box and pay by weight. Excellent concept the counter staff is quick and friendly and generally a meal for two with a drnk should not... More
