    A few highlights: The bulgogi beef sliders, the spicy glutinous rice cakes with pork sausages, and the bo ssam, braised pork with dehydrated kimchi and daikon wraps. Most dishes cost under $20. Read more

    Whoa! Everything about this place makes me want to come back. Great service, cool room, amazing tapas-style dishes. Try the pork sliders, the tartare, the paella, and especially the calamari.

    Tried their 3 courses menu during NYC restaurant week. The KFC chicken wings was ok, but their bibimbap was well presented and delicious! And their sesame ice cream is to die for.. sooooo gooood!!! 😋

    The bossam is so, so good. It’s pork belly with a daikon wrap and pickled vegetables. Incredible. Kimchi fried rice is also the best you’ll ever have

    Non-traditional, delicious Korean food in a cozy setting. The bulgogi beef sliders were very flavorful and the kimchi paella was perfect with the scrambled egg on top.

    Crowded and popular with very little waiting room. Get the mushroom "jook" porridge with truffle oil and the spicy pork belly sliders. Sliders are REALLY spicy but delicious. Cocktails are good too

    I usually judge a place in order of service, atmosphere, food, music taste, bathroom. In that order, Danji has won everything. Right down to the Korean Pear Cocktail.

    Amazing Korean dishes!! Yellowfin tuna was definitely a highlight! The seafood pancake is very onion-y but nice. My favourite dish was the sliders!

    Honestly, I've searched far and wide and have finally found the BEST Shrimp & Scallion pancake in NYC or maybe EVER!! Sake sangria is a nice compliment too. Very quaint & cozy vibes.

    A great combination of modern and traditional Korean fare that was flavorful and interesting. Izakaya-tapas style so great to go with others and share a variety of dishes. Just wish it was downtown!

    Tofu salad with tofu crispy on outside and melt-in-your-mouth inside. Trio of kimchi with all standouts. The bulgogi beef sliders were perfect. And a Gruner and Zweigelt by the glass! Wow!

    the small dishes concept is perfect for dinner before a show or a quiet night out. kimchi rice, korean rice cakes, and bulgogi sliders were the crowd pleasers!

    This is some serious Korean food at a great price. The confit pork sliders will blow your mind. The tofu, calamari, whelk salad with buckwheat are all highly recommended.

    The mayor gets a drink comp upon arrival. Hells yeah. The food here is amazing, particularly any of the pork dishes and the Kimchi Fried Rice. Be prepared to wait for table; no reservations!

    Tapas inspired Korean food. Make sure to include the: bulgogi sliders, kimchi paella, and short rib in your order. Bonus points for managing to create a romantic ambiance in HK.

    This Korean place lost their Michelin star but has the best fried tofu and chicken wings I've ever had in my life. It's small but cozy and a good lunch spot.

    Delicious! Get the kimchi trios as a side, and be sure to order the sashimi. The sweet potato noodles are incredible, but you need a knife!

    It's a small place with a small menu. If you don't order the bulgogi sliders then you're doing it wrong.

    Delicious. Great for pre-theater but I would travel for this regardless. The best scallion pancake of my life - big, fat shrimp. Fried chicken a winner.

    The menu is divvied into traditional & modern plates. Traditional dips into 'danji' braised short ribs with fingerlings & pearl onions; modern might look like spicy yellowtail sashimi. Both are great. Read more

    Many items hv spicy elements. Paella more like rice on a heated stone plate. Leaf of Whelk Salad had distinctive bitter taste. Pork Belly Sliders tad bit greasy. Overall innovative menu. Reserve !

    If you want to experience this place properly, don't look at the menu, just let the chef chose for you. Everything is great, but the tofu, sliders, sablefish, & short ribs stand out. Love this place.

    #dubiDO #FabuLIST bulgogi sliders and spicy pork belly sliders. Two per order. Menus hidden in drawers at the table. #dubiDONT wagu short ribs are overrated and expensive for what you get.

    Tofu was amazing - gooey skin delicious. Bossam is braised pork in a cabbage wrap, also heavenly. Bulgogi sliders delectable. I would skip the chicken wangs.

    Start with golbaengi moochim (whelks), then thick fillets of pearly white sablefish or a tray of bo ssäm (pork belly). – Green Guide Editor

    Take our advice: eat the kimchi bacon spam fried rice. They say it's for 2, but we won't judge you if you devour it all yourself!
