We were in NYC on business and we were looking for a place to eat near our hotel. We wanted ethnic food and we came across this place from the YELP reviews. We read that there is always a long line to get in. This was a Sunday evening and when we go there we were seated right away. This... read more

This restaurant is though to find, you must down the stairs then there is a door, behind that it is the restaurant. It is a pleasant surprise. The prices are cheap for the food's quality. I have eaten a lot of dishes and all have been amazing. The Hagi is a simple restaurant, but with a delicious food and kind... More

Really enjoyed this meal sitting at the bar. Friendly service and atmosphere. Great flavor combinations. Try the pork belly with sprouts and beans.

Very similar to student Izakaya bar/restaurants we have visited in Tokyo. Lively good atmosphere and reasonably cheap just off Times Square. The place is tatty which fits with its image but the food whilst good is not excellent, although the kimchi fried rice was very good. Izakaya Mew is much better.

Real traditional Japanese food ! I just came here and it was full of Japanese so I thought : " this is really authentic ! ". Here I discovered the warm Japanese dishes and honestly this restaurant , excluding Japan, has been the best Japanese restaurant in my life . It's simply the best

My party of four waited about 20 minutes to be seated and immediately ordered a pitcher of beer (which came promptly). We order multiple steamed, fried, and seared plates. Everything came out hot, delicious, and cooked perfectly. I've spent time traveling in Asia and I was blown away at how spot on some of my favorite flavors were. Try the... More

We stopped in here for a small lunch and ended up over-ordering as always. The octopus balls were a-ma-zing as was the yellow-fin tuna on the sashimi plate. All melt in the mouth stuff. They also have Asahi beer on draft which is the perfect way to wash it all down. Simply delicious food despite it being right in the... More

Our visit to Hagi was a simple one, it wasn't planned but our friends wanted to meet us there. So we went to meet them here on Easter Sunday for dinner. The restaurant is in the basement, but no problem, you'll find it. Of course it was crowded. If the reviews are good, the place is crowded. Luckily we got... More

Good food!! It was crowded even at 9pm but worth the wait. Great cause it opens till late so can drop by after Broadway. Thought the ramen was ordinary but the others(raw octopus, teriyaki squid, tempura) were good.

It was 10pm in NYC, and I was craving Japanese comfort food. I originally found this place though Yelp and noticed that it had over 1000 reviews with 4 stars. I checked the menu and did not see the typical Japanese food that most would expect. Don't come here if you are wanting spider/California rolls or eclectic sushi rolls...there are... More

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.
