Visited weeknight with small party of adults. Attentive and helpful wait staff, and the food was excellent. The shrimp bomb and Bibim Bap were very good.

It's not in Korea-town but it's still very good. Varied menu - not just the BBQ! Good service, reasonable prices and very tasty. Would definitely go back if I had the chance (it's a long way from Devon). The MemSahib loved it - would probably give them a "five".

This was our second visit and both me and my husband liked it just the same. Ordered the seaweed avocado salad which was refreshing; the mushroom bibimbap complemented the spicy pork ssam nicely and the roasted rice sticks with green tea ice cream wrapped up the meal perfectly. Justin our waiter was attentive and sweet, thumbs up. If you think... More

My wife and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary in New York, so we decided to have our anniversary dinner at Kori, which is an Asian/Korean restaurant on Church Street in lower Manhattan. We arrived at 5 PM, and we were the first ones in the restaurant. The restaurant is dimly lit, and it is not very spacious. In addition,... More

BF and I dined here last night because we like Korean food, and we were not disappointed. We started with an app of mixed steamed dumplings and they were very good. BF had the pork and kimchi bibimbap and he really liked it. It came in a hot sizzling bowl which made the rice crunchy at the bottom. I had... More

The restaurant feels very intimate,a great place for a date or a low key meal with friends. The bibimbap is probably the best I have ever had and I always go out of my way to eat here when I'm near TriBeCa. Service is excellent and servers are always willing to answer any question.

Love the high ceiling and cozy ambiance of this TriBeCa Korean joint. Visited for the first time and we were quite happy with everything we ordered. The cucumber seaweed salad served as a refreshing starter, followed by the Wine Pork Belly and Shrimp Japjae. Assumed the pork was first deep fried and then stir fried with a tangy caramel like...

Everything was excellent including the service. Bibimbap was the best ever. The box lunch short rib was brilliant.

I really enjoy eating here as I developed a love of Korean food while stationed with the 2nd Division . Thought truth be told , I never ate in a place as nice as this. The food and service are great and my son and I truly enjoyed ourselves.
