It's a shame this restaurant is in New York, as if it was in Edinburgh I'd be there all the time. We had a Groupon to use and went along early evening before a show. The waiters were great, recommended things and we ordered the barbecue. We had delicious ribs for starters and when the main course arrived we got... More

I invited my mother for lunch after show at Radio City. No reservation needed during weekday. It was fairly empty. The atmosphere is very nice. I ordered Jang Aw Gui and bulgogi . They were very well prepared. It was not cheap, total $45.

My colleague suggsted we eat here, his second time, having never had Korean BBQ before I said yes, I love kimchi so see what the rest of the cuisine is about. Staff were very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, food was great quality - can't comment on cooking as we did this - and to be honest the price wasn't bad... More

We love Bann: the bulgogi, kalbi, pajun, Bann Gooksu, etc. Excellent efficient service. But, we made a mistake letting our friend order pork belly. Not for a novice. Even the waiter questioned it, but was too polite to challenge her. Well, she didn't like it and we all tried to get her to try something else. No, she said she... More

Loved the place! The food was absolutely amazing. I went for noodles soup (simply because I had been craving it for a while) and I wish I hadnt. Not that my meal wasn't nice - it was very good, but my partner went for fresh tuna which was to be cooked on the barbecue and the fish was simply amazing.... More

If you like Korean food, Bann is a good place to go pre-theater, or in fact anytime. Less than a block from the subway (E 50th St station) and with plenty of parking garages close by, it's easy to get to. And you'll be rewarded by a warm, friendly atmosphere, professional service and excellent food. Our group of 35 was... More

Had the BBQ for dinner there and I am highly satisfied with my experience. The food was great, service was impeccable, dessert was on point. Most importantly, AWESOME ventilation, can't smell BBQ off my clothes after we finished dinner at all. I highly recommend this place.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
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.
