    Not note worthy. Chom Chom's menu offers a wide selection. We ordered the sampler appetizer and salad to start. We ordered a chicken dish for an entree. All of these dishes came out quickly, too quickly. There wasn't anything wrong with the food. It just wasn't good enough to want to come back or encourage others to try it.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Chom Chom before a performance of Alvin Ailey at City Center. The food was wonderfully tasty. The service was friendly and efficient. And the tables were far apart enough for quiet conversation. This is a real find. We will be back.

    I went with a friend for Korean Restaurant Week and the selections they had were quite delicious! It was a prix fixe menu and I got the pancake sampler and the spicy short ribs as the entree. The prix fixe menu came with salad with this delicious dressing and a dessert of a rice drink with fruits. The service was pretty good as all the waiters and waitresses were very attentive. Definitely a place to try!

    The food is tasteless and it looks like from the frozen fish. They lied about the Sunday lunch menu, they told that dinner is available only. The waiters are slow and inattentive. Spend time on it is clearly not worth it.

    Went there late (9PM) and was seated quickly. Very attentive but comfortable service. Ordered the seafood pancake as appetizer and kalbi gui (short ribs) as an entree. Both were prepared very well and tasty. The banchan dishes were small but adequate - lettuce with spicy dressing, natto beans, bean sprouts, and pickled daikon. Interestingly no kim chee. Would go back again to try other dishes. Found street parking right in front of the restaurant.

    We loved all the food we had and it was a lovely, quiet place in an otherwise hectic midtown neighborhood. A bit of an oasis for a foodie group tired after the MoMA experience. The food was excellent, the service good (although they seemed impatient at times) and we had a terrific time. We will be back!

    I wandered into Chom Chom looking for an inexpensive to mid-range Korean restaurant to go to on a Friday night. Located in Midtown, I can imagine it's a workday haven for bankers because the food is fantastic, the prices are low and the service is impeccable. We made reservations thinking we would have trouble getting in, but were amazed to find the lower dining room with many tables open. It's a perfect place for a weekend date. We'll be back.

    We were party of 4 for quick dinner before show at City Center. Food was good, told waitress upfront that we had only 1 hour, no problem, they were very understanding. We tried Korean pancakes (veg and seafood - liked vegetarian better), sushi - ok, not great,hand rolls were better than regular sushi rolls, but everything was reasonably priced for NYC and quick service was an added bonus.

    food is presented beautifully and it tastes pretty good, but not amazing. sometimes it's flat. sometimes it's too spicy. sometimes it's not spicy enough. i eat here because it's on the same block as my work. inconsistent is probably the appropriate term. but i continue to go because it's right here.....

    Went to Chom Chom for lunch on Saturday after reading the good reviews for restaurant week. I saw the clapboard advertising restaurant week lunch & dinner specials. Was seated promptly and presented with the restaurant week menu in addition to the regular menu. Decided to have the restaurant week lunch special. Waitress looked upset and said lunch special was not available on Saturday. She flipped the menu over & said only the dinner special was served on weekends. It was a difference between $25 versus $34! I told her that wasn't what the clapboard advertised & she said she'd tell tell the boss. Ordered something else (not any better than what could be had in Koreatown). When I left the clapboard was still out there, unaltered.

    Went to the restaurant for Restaurant Week and ordered the Pre Fixe. Couldn't believe how great the food tasted. From the Salad to the Appetizer to the Entrée to the Dessert. Well, the dessert was the least desirable. However the rest of the food definitely made up for the dessert. Besides I was too full to eat another bite.

    Chom Chom has become our children's favorite place to celebrate their birthdays. The staff is extremely friendly, the food is so delicious and the children love "cooking" their Bi Bim Bop in their stone bowls. I took advantage of the restaurant week menu and absolutely loved the miso cod. And you can't beat the location. Try Chom Chom, you won't be dissapointed.

    This is the second time I've been here and its still very good. They gave you a lot of food for restaurant week. What I really liked about it was they served a salad that wasn't pre-dressed. Many restaurants serve salads dressed. Sometimes drowning in dressing and you get a wilted salad. This salad was great. The food was prepared exactly as we asked and tasted great. Service was also very good. The wait staff was attentive.

    We ordered Bibimbop and were surprised by the 4 small plates of delicious cold appetizers and a bowl of miso soup that came before it. All were tasty. The bibimbop came in a steaming hot stone bowl. Very tasty and reasonably priced. The waitress was patient and explained each food to us. A pleasant experience.

    my wife and i went for dinner here on a saturday about 6p. we were greeted by a friendly, smiling waitress who agreed to give us a table in the corner. beer selection was not extensive, but adequate. however the idea of korean tapas, or 'kappas', was perfect for us. we love the different flavors of korean foods, and we were able to sample many of them. the radish kimchee was great, as was the bimbim bap roll. not a fancy upscale restaurant, but rather a comfortable, casual spot that is great for pre-theatre, pre-movie, pre-comedy club, or a fun date. not overly pricey either.
