An East Village Gem

The first time I ate Korean food was at Dok Suni in the East Village. I had bebimbop, and it turned me on to Korean food.

Have been going to this cash-only East Village gem for years and think the food is absolutely fabulous. It's kind of small and they don't take reservations, so plan on waiting (well worth it) if going during prime hours. Every person I've brought here loves it as much as I do, so have lots of different groups of friends to... More

I've been coming here for years, had numerous dates there, hung out with many friends and even the former owners, it's still a great staple, but the quality has definitely slipped in the past few years. The home style concept is still there and the spot is a mix of neighborhood regulars and the new yuppie transplants, but the squid... More

pretty good. although I have a hard time paying so much for korean, when I can find it so cheap in other boroughs. but that's manhattan for you, and dok suni is actualy pretty affordable considering the location. good atmosphere as well. would recommend if in the area.

I love this place!In the heart of the East Village, always packed and there bulgogi is awesome! My fave spot in the city thus far. I never did like the after dinner ginger tea they give you at the end.

Neighborhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
