So this was impulse choice. We just got out of ESB and really wanted to eat something good. We've found this amazing place within walking distance and it was simply great. I've stuffed my face with few thousands of delicious calories. All staff was really friendly and helpful. Great place, give it a try.

We arrived in New York late and ordered too many food here. The price is medium. The saba fish is great.

I have noticed that this place was always packed, and I decided to check it myself. The buffet style was good for those who are craving different things. The food wasn't spectacular, but it was still good. I also liked the selection of soups, other prepackaged hot foods, and kimbap.

Great place if you want to try all kinds of Korean dishes, and they are pretty good. You can eat there or take away to eat quietly at home, and there is a good variety of Korean drinks and snacks too.

This is a Korean restaurant, with buffet at very reasonable price (paid USD 9 only), close to Empire State Building. The quality of food is mediocre, but taking into account the price it is difficult to expect more.

Nothing fancy here, just a great spot to eat, without tourists. Everything is good and cheap, and if you are up to discover genuine flavors, go there! Would eat there everyday my eyes closed. They'll get your senses high.

We stopped by this place for a quick dinner after a full day of sightseeing. The place was packed with Koreans and locals alike. There was a wide variety of Korean food and we chose to try a bit of everything from the hot buffet area. We filled our tummies for US$14 for both of us and our toddler. *Note... More

We enjoyed the buffet for 7.99$ per Lb. it was a bit disorientating at first: you grab your drink, fill a box and then pay before you eat. Also it is by the weight! Not all what you can eat buffet. Lots of tasty food and also healthy side dish. Happy customers!

The perfect place to stop for a quick and easy Korean meal. There is an awesome hot buffet with 20 kinds of tour favorite Korean foods, so if you don't want to commit to one entree, you can try a little of each of the 20! Also great place for grabbing a snack before getting on a bus or train... More

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.
