Following a great review in Lonely Planet we sought out this gem of a restaurant for lunch. The food was great, as was the service. The decor was supercool and we would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for something away from the typical NYC fare.

Danji is a bustling and compact gem close to the theater district. The service was warm and attentive, and the food was outstanding. The tofu was the best I've ever had, and the shrimp and scallion pancakes were great. We're looking forward to going back.

This review is strictly for Danji's lunch session - I did not manage to get to the dinner session. The lunch menu is kind of disappointing, a short list of maybe 7 to 8 appetizers, a shorter list of bi-bim baps and a cold noodle for entrees. Not much to choose from. The taco bulgogi was interestingly good, but the... More

If you're looking for a traditional Korean meal and simply don't appreciate fusion food don't eat at Danji as you will be disappointed. My wife I went after catching a Broadway show and simply put we enjoyed our dinner and drinks. It was a little cramped given it is a small space, but we felt the service was good and... More

Very good food in the theatre district. The place is small, intimate, prepare to share a common table, as our family of 5 did with a couple. The food was fantastic. Small plates. When the menu says small in terms of the size, please interpret it literally. We were very impressed by the chef with the KFC and the Pork... More

Despite being a little squished at 9.30 sitting we were over the moon with our degustation menu. After a big day and Cats we were exhausted but determined to enjoy our last night in Manhattan. The service was great - friendly and informative. Definitely recommend this place for some delicious Korean!!

Visited here after seeing a show on Broadway and had a wonderful experience. Each dish was fantastic and the staff were incredibly friendly. Upon hearing that we were on our honeymoon they came out with two free glasses of prosecco!

A relatively small Korean food place - I'd estimate only 25-30 seats or so. We visited with colleagues as a team dinner. Service was excellent, and the food delicious, and not alt all that expensive for NYC standards.

Our family of 5 was staying in NYC and had the chance to visit Danji for dinner. My wife and I had the tasting menu while the kids ordered a la carte. A very enjoyable meal with some unique dishes and a nice environment.

Our friends took us to this wonderful restaurant. Outstanding sashimi, steak tartare and sable black cod. we had a most enjoyable evening sharing these dishes with our wine. Absolutely recommend this as a must stop when in NYC.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
