Always crowded should be your first positive clue. The kimchi and gratis small plate appetizers with a meal are always great and the hot vegetable gobdol with egg and spicy sauce with a Korean beer is the hot tip.

I selected this restaurant somewhat at random after realizing my area restaurant of choice only took cash. The dining area is very simple, nothing fancy, and a tad crowded. The wine is basically limited time "house headache red" and "house too-sweet white." The food is what you'd expect / fresh, fast and tasty in absurdly large portions. I'm glad I... More

Extremely good food in a traditional Korean restaurant with a nice ambiance, attentive staff, and excellent food quality. The bibimbap with beef and mixed veggies over rice in a hot stone pot is a classic standby, as is the delicious bulgogi sauteed beef.

They do not serve a bbq selection like other Korean places. No real help from the waiter on what to order, he seemed bored and tired. we finally ordered the onion chicken which was good and the bibimpap with pork which was very blunt (even with plenty of their "not hot" salsa) and was very very hot and thus we...

our daughter is Korean and we would like to share with her as many Korean experiences as possible. This is one and it is fabulous. If you are looking for shiny and glitzy go somewhere else. If you want the experience of authentic Korean food and time with your family go to Han Bat and you will feel as if... More

Having been to only one other Korean restaurant in my life, I'll admit that I had no clue what I was ordering--nor did my husband--but it was great. Waitress was very helpful, explaining which dishes were not too spicy, yet not "boring." Very authentic cuisine, as far as I could tell. After we ordered main courses, at least 8 little... More

My wife and I found the food to be enjoyable. The staff was pleasant and attentive. It is a great place to be with friends and family to enjoy a good meal and have a lively dinner conversation without concern of disturbing others.

I ate twice here in one day. Wide range of side dishes which were the highlight for me. The Bulgogi was of the juicy kind. Cold noodles very filling. Staff are very polite and give fast service.

The food was good but not excellent. A little blend and for the price they charged, I expected a little bit more autheticity.

Great place to meet friends or business assocaites for lunch in a convenient midtown location. Make reservations as it is crowded at lunch. Be sure to have the stone-pot bibimbop

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.
