Good Thai and Vietnamese food. Not a large vegetarian choice but very tasty. Large servings. Convenient for Macy's and right by 34th St Subway station

We were looking for something quick and found this Korean restaurant that also served Chinese and Vietnamese! The service was very good and friendly, the menu has good choices and is good value. What we had was very tasty, although not enough vegetables for me in the Pho I had. They seem to have some good special offers, so look... More

This Thai / Chinese / Korean restaurant was visited by us during a lunch. Food was delicious and service was prompt. Surely will consider to come again and try more from the menu.

Found this little place in 35th St. for lunch. Menu has chinese, vietnamese, thai and korean choices. (I don't think they have korean BBQ though) Close to Herald Square (this area is surrounded by hotels so if you are looking for a restaurant steps away this is your best bet) Staff is very polite. Place is clean and had that... More

Ate here as a last minute decision. Chicken fried rice had a hair in it, sweet and sour chicken was tasteless, given only water as a drink, no offer of other beverages. Employee walked past us 5 times from the kitchen to the front main entrance with bin bags. Only one toilet with only one door, very unhygienic. Our table... More

I dropped in for a late meal, after arriving at my mid-town hotel last month. To be on the safe side, I ordered the bulgogi plate, and was not disappointed. The meet was cooked perfectly, and the assemblage of side dishes - from all the pickles to the cooked vegetables, were all very tasty. The service was friendly and very... More

Visited here as wanted a change and we were staying in the hotel Metro next door, the staff were very welcoming and friendly and the service was second to none. The food was absolutely beautiful and huge portions, spicy seafood noodles were packed with king prawns and tasted delicious, in fact I couldn't finish as there was so much. Very... More

Hyo Dong Gak was recommended as one of the better Korean-Chinese restaurants in the area. I was surprised that the food ended up mediocre at best, and pricier than most. The jajangmyun lacked flavor, the tangsooyook didn't taste right, and service was lacking.

During our recent family trip to NYC, we wanted to find a "Korean/Chinese" restaurant for "ja jang myun" and "jjam bong", which are two staple dishes for "Korean/Chinese" restaurants. The ja jang myun and tang soo yook (sweet and sour pork) were delicious. The jjam bong was above average. Service was fast. We did go to the restaurant for lunch... More

Tried this for Saturday night dinner as convenient for Herald Square. Food was served promptly and it tasted great - seemed to be very much authentic Korean cuisine :-) Staff were very friendly and prices very reasonable for the quality and quantity of food.

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.
