Great authentic Korean food! If you are an adventurous eater and like foods and dishes you've never tried - this is a great choice. I loved my spicy tofu and seafood stew/hotpot.
A tady pricey and service isn;t the most friendly or I would have given a 5.

Came by for lunch on our first trip to NYC. Had to wait about 5 minutes. Everything we had was sooo good. The best Korean food!!! We were served with an assortment of Korean specialties while waiting for our food- all were extremely good and tasty. We ordered from the lunch specials- jjigae. Both of our dishes were delicious. I have already recommended and will be back on our next trip to NYC.

We've eaten at Korean places all over the country, and this was the worst easily, so I don't know why it's rated so well here in NYC. The little appetizers that always come with Korean meals were very good, but the meal was downhill from there. The Kalbi beef short ribs were bland and skimpy. They appeared to be griddled, not grilled. The grilled chicken was extremely strange; it was more like sautéed Kimchi chicken than grilled chicken. The bulgogi was either boiled or sautéed then placed on a hot grill plate to make it sizzle and boil off the remaining fluid. Lastly, the meal was prohibitively expensive by Korean restaurant standards. Authentic or not, this place disappoints this foodie.

Cho Dang Gol is worth seeking out if you are in New York City.
Homemade Tofu, great hot pots, excellent selections from Pork to Seafood.
Great dumplings!
Expect a bit of a wait, as this is a small space, and it is constantly packed.....a good thing!
Great for a group, as you can order lots of plates, and share.
