Picked this restaurant for its proximity to Penn Station and reviews for a quick dinner before catching our train on our last day in the city. It did not disappoint. Some of the best Korean food we've had outside Korea.

They have Korean BBQ and Korean traditional soup. I tried soybean fiber kimchi based soup. That tasted good and I guess was so healthy! What I like with restaurant is every staffs are smiley. That made me happier.

We went without a reservation at 7:30 pm and only had to wait a few minutes although the restaurant was full all the time no one seemed to wait any longer. Staff were cheerful and very helpful when choosing. Food was great but the portions are large and the service is very efficient. I would suggest resisting over ordering by... More

We were busy on getting to the theatre and wanted to have something quickly. Service was really quick and had lovely Korean pancakes and dumplings. Other things we ordered were just ok.

There are several Korean places in the area- this one seemed to be the busiest. We had dolsot bibimbap in the heated stone bowl - it was delightful.

I arrived around 5pm for dinner so getting a seat was not a problem at all. Restaurant was warm and cosy with wood furnished interior, which is perfect for a cold winter evening. Service is prompt with the side dishes served once order has been placed. The stew is yummy and comforting, but I would have loved for it to... More

Great place for traditional and flavorful Korean food in the city! I had the kimchi soondubu, which had smooth tofu and ground beef in a (very) red broth! The others at my table also had the kimchi soondubu, but theirs didn't appear as red or spicy - but in any case, it was still quite tasty and (incredibly) spicy! The... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood 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 heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the 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.
