Amazing little area in Midtown in close proximity to Times Square. Many eateries and little Korean shops. With a little wander around but not somewhere I would go out of my way to see like Chinatown or Little Italy.

stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott in Koreatown. Hotel was very modern and nice but didn't care for the area. Except for some good restaurants, lots of touristy stores and tons of bead stores.

Stayed in Koreatown at the NY Manhattan Hotel, which is near the corner of 32nd street and 5th avenue. Loved this area for the vast array of Korean restaurants, and the large number of restaurants in general. Lots of quick meal places, Panera Bread, Starbucks,...More

This is a perfect spot to get away from NYC foods: the pizza, subs, and all that. It is situated near the empire state building, packed with choices from expensive korean bbq restaurants to an ordinary food-court-ish korean foods such as kimbab, bulgogi, and chinese-infused...More

Koreatown is much smaller than Chinatown, so of course there aren't as many places to go or things to do, but it's still fun, especially for foodies. There are mostly restaurants, groceries, book & magazine stores, movie DVD shops, & a few jewelry & clothing...More

The two places that we visited did not have the cost for all drinks...that almost doubled our check. Hold on for drinks in a bar during happy hour. Most restaurants are open 24 hours!!!

Whenever we crave for Korean food, we stroll on 34th or 32nd Street to get our "fix". Most of the restaurants serve great food and it's hard to choose which to go because there are soooo many of them. Peep inside, scope the people out...More

Very good food that was authentic Korean was a nice change from Pizza! Very reasonably priced and the choice of restaurants meant it was not too crowded. Look out for Lunch specials.

Naming this little area Koreatown is a bit deceiving because it's actually really one block rather than a town. It’s pretty interesting how the businesses are set up here almost like they did take a town and squeezed it all on top of each other....More
