Danji opens at 5pm and fills up quickly, so I definitely recommend making a reservation. Ordered 3 dishes from their small menu and 1 dish from the medium, which was pretty satisfying for 2 people looking for a light bite before a show. Various sources recommended the tofu w ginger scallion dressing, garlic honey wings w. sesame seeds and soy-poached... More

Excellent food and my neighborhood "go to" spot when I have family and friends visiting NYC. Small plates are great for sharing and the restaurant overall has a warm and inviting feel.

Let's start with the food, which was largely excellent - a 4-5 star meal on its own. The spicy wings were delicious, the beef bibim bap was the best I've had, and the kimchi was varied and subtly favored. The sole drawbacks were the vegetarian dumplings, which were bland and unassisted by the dull sauce that came with them, and... More

I've come to Danji twice now, both times after seeing a broadway show. Each time my experience has been excellent. Every dish I've ordered has been flavorful. Highlights include the tofu with ginger scallion dressing (which made a fan out of one of my friends who had never been too fond of tofu), the kfc chicken wings, bugolgi sliders (delicious,... More

Tried about 8 different dishes. Nothing disappointed. Tried the pancakes, cod, salad, spicy veg dumpling, rice cakes. Enjoyed it all. The only dish that we did not enjoy was the seafood stew. The French fries were not bad, but just overpriced fries. The cod was the best dish. An overall thumbs up by the group. The sashimi as a first... More

This place is amazing! Every single dish was very very good. The service is attentive and prompt. The waitress was able to give us great suggestions about what to order. The restaurant is very small, not fancy but pretty cute! We love it!

This tiny, cozy restaurant is near the theater district, which means that I recommend a reservation if you want to eat before curtain time. The service was outstanding, the food was perfect, and the sake selection was excellent. What can I say? I'll be back...

We stopped by Danji after seeing an eight o'clock show. They were still open (it was 11:30) and welcomed us in. The food was amazing! We weren't terribly hungry, so we ordered off the small section of the menu. Definitely appetizer portions, but they were the perfect size for us. They did close the kitchen at 12, but the staff...

Excellent food, good service, charming place. This is a perfect place for tapas, but you must love to discover new types of food.

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.
