Great fried dumplings!

We came two days in a row just for those chicken fried dumplings! Unfortunately we asked for fried scallops and they gave us tiny peaces in tempura style!! They tasted good, but very disappointed of wasting such a delicacy covered in flour and oil! The fried rice is just ok, but for sure go in... read more

We ordered a takeaway from here ordering a variety of meat dishes.. the chicken was fatty and the beef questionable. We couldn't finish the food as it wasn't nice at all. What you order from the menu and what you receive seems very different - didn't like the noodles but possibly because they were Korean rather than Chinese they were... More

This restaurant doesn't look anything from the outside and we were actually a bit apprehensive but needn't have been at all. We were looking for something quick and close to our hotel and the food and service was better than we could have hoped for. Sweet n sour chicken was delicious!

We dined twice at this restaurant, once for take out and once for dine in. The food is reasonably priced and very well cooked. The service when we dined in was outstanding, with very attentive and helpful waitstaff. It was convenient to our hotel also and I have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant

Ate dinner here tonight and ordered the half seafood and half black bean noodles. It was $12.99. Good value and tasted great. Service is good as well. It's not in Koreatown but there are other Korean restaurants close by.

We enjoyed a very tasty meal. The chef's meat with broccoli was superior, the steamed dumplings and the seafood noodles were also great. The seafood soup with noodles wasn't as good as the other dishes. Prices are not high, and I would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends.

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.
