My sister's friend invited us for dinner and she asked us, "what do you like to eat?" My daughter said that she loves ❤️ Korean culture, so she answered "korean food". So our friend said, "I will take you one of most delicious 😋 food that you ever taste. So she took us to Kunjip restaurant." And we were not... More

Dinner at 11 pm $31+tip Accepts all major credit cards ** (Casual) Weekend evenings are super busy. This place always feels a bit understaffed, however, they some how always manage to get to you in reasonanle time: bringing the banchan (korean complementary appetizers like kimchi and spicy radishes), filling water, taking and delivering orders. Restaurant is very high energy. Food... More

We went as a family of four. Although there was a line the owner seemed to pick us out and found us a table immediately. We were surprised that there was a language barrier with the staff -they don't speak much English- but they worked hard to try and explain everything to us. Although we still weren't entirely sure what... More

Extremely disappointed by this restaurant. It was noon and the place was packed, but you would assume a restaurant in NY would be used to this. Apparently not. I got my food quickly, but my companion didn't get food after a half hour wait. The same thing happened to the people next to us and several other diners were complaining... More

While this was my first visit for Korean BBQ, I was joined by two friends who love the cuisine. We arrived on a Friday evening without a reservation and found the restaurant crowded, but the wait was reasonable (about 20 minutes). Staff worked to take orders while yo waited so that food was ready quickly once you were seated. As... More

We told them we were in a hurry and they didn't disappoint. The food seemed authentic and tasty (although not to my kids taste).

We've been to this Korean restaurant several times and we have yet to be disappointed! We love the freshness of the food. Their Korean BBQ was quite tasty as was their bibimbap. Their dumplings are great, too! I love that it's open all the time. It's now our go to restaurant every time we're in NYC!

Many people lined up, and a bit noisy inside restaurant as there are many people. It would be to great if they allow customers to spend a bit more time on enjoying food. I felt they want customers get out asap for better turnaround. Menus are good.

This restaurant serves up the usual Korean staple. Food is generally fine, and service is fast and efficient. The menu is rather extensive. Seating is cramped, it generally feels more like a fast food joint than a sit down restaurant.

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.
