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.

My husband and I had an exquisite meal here several years ago, so when I was in NYC this past June, I definitely made it a point to stop back in. I love the atmosphere and most of the dishes were hits. What I definitely came back for was their tofu dish, and it did not disappoint. We also loved... More

My spouse and I enjoyed lunch at Danji on a Friday afternoon in late May 2016. Danji is located in the Hell’s Kitchen/Midtown West/Theatre District neighborhood of Manhattan on West 52nd Street between 8th and 9th Avenues. Danji serves lunch on weekdays and dinner on Mondays through Saturdays (closed on Sundays). The chef/owner of Danji also owns Hanjan (in the... More

Awesome lunch, great service and nice decoration. The price level is a little bit higher, but worth every bug!

I’ve only been to Danji twice and did my best to work through the menu, and I'll definitely be back. It’s this cozy little Korean tapas spot where it’s clear the chef is a classically trained in French cuisine but uses Korean ingredients, flavors, and techniques. Apparently their chef was the first Korean to be awarded a Michelin Star and... More

Small cosy place, loved the ambience. We made online reservation. Ordered cod fish with black bean sauce, pork bun and kimchi stew. The food is good, especially the cod. Portion is a bit small but nevertheless perfect place to a lovely night out.

We arrived without a reservation after our matinee and they were able to squeeze us in. We were served quickly but didn't feel rushed. Everything was delicious. We had spicy "KFC" Korean fire chicken wings which were crunchy and sweet. We also ordered pork belly sliders, bossam, which is pork belly wrapped in daikon and topped it off with kimchi... More

Danji is a wee unassuming Korean restaurant that is close to Broadway theaters and can send you on your way with a full belly in good time. I ordered the beef bulgogi bibim-bap, which arrived hot with plenty of traditional ingredients to mix in for a tasty meal. I didn't rush and wasn't rushed, and I still was in and... 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.
