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.
