Danji showcases authentic Korean flavors prepared with classic techniques to enhance the taste, textures, and aesthetic of each dish. We offer small but shareable portions served in multiple courses, allowing diners to enjoy each dish hot out of the kitchen. Above all, Danji, from its decor to its music, represents our idea of a great place to enjoy amazing food.

At Danji and Hanjan we choose to use meat raised with no antibiotics or growth hormones. Our fish are caught wild and are not overfished and endangered. We try to use as much organic and local produce as possible and certainly do not use chemicals, such as MSG, to enhance flavors. No doubt these ingredients cost more but we believe the food we consume should be healthy and responsible as well as delicious.

    I really enjoyed my visit to Danji. My favorite items were the yellowtail sashimi and the shrimp and scallion pancake, but everything I ordered was very good. My server was charming, which made the experience that much better!

    We really enjoyed this funky little spot for Korean small plates. We had the fried tofu, veggie dumplings, beef sliders and shrimp and scallion pancake. Beef sliders were our favorite. the service was exceptional - they were always there clearing dishes to make space and filling waters without being obtrusive. We loved our pre-show dinner here. Music was funny (some CCR and other random stuff), not bad but didn't feel like it went with the vibe of the place and we noticed it. Nice and warm on a cold November night.

    We sat outside in one of the little “rooms “. The service was very good except they brought our main course at the same time as the appetizer. Other than that, the food was delicious and so were the drinks.

    The food and service was wonderful. I had the black cod which was melt in your mouth delish. My dinner companions had the bibimbop (beef and vegetarian) and both really enjoyed their dishes. For appetizers we shared the yellowtail (fish is fresh but thought the dish is just okay and a bit too pricey), the tofu (nice) and spicy chicken wings which were a big hit. Our server was really sweet and extremely attentive. We sat in the outside private booths which are heated. Definitely recommend!

    It was a fun night out. The cocktails were excellent. The food was really good: appetizers - shrimp and scallion pancake was great, would pass on the tofu in the future, the dumplings were really good; entrees - the noodles and kimchi fried rice were both very good. We sat outside, which was ok, it was our only option. The restaurant inside is really cool, highly encourage that or sitting at the bar. If you're in the city and want something different, this is a great option.

    This was my first time back since the pandemic and was disappointed. I had a reservation initially for 2 but called to change to solo due to unforeseen circumstances. The person on the phone made no mention that I would be seated at the bar. MaItre’d was a little prickly and later another solo diner came in and was given a table. The bartender was very nice but the food and drink weren’t nearly as good as I remember. If you’re going to go out of your way to make solo diners uncomfortable then maybe u shouldn’t allow reservations for one.

    Usually I LOVE Danji. But yesterday it was off. They forgot our drinks order, we had finished 2 courses before we got our cocktails. And the $52 short ribs were inedible. Even with a knife & fork you couldn’t cut them & they were 60% fat, 40% tough chewy awful meat. It seemed like no one was on their game.

    Honestly, Danji is one of my favorite Korean joints in Manhattan. The food is of amazing quality and has such a nice variety of options. I always sit at the bar and enjoy my experience there. The bartender is very friendly, works efficiently, and addresses all your needs no matter how busy the night is. We participated in the restaurant week menu this time and enjoyed it so much! The Short ribs were absolutely amazing and the black sesame ice cream at the end was a perfect size and finish to an awesome meal! Will definitely be back! Especially since they will be getting their rice cakes back!!

    We have been customers of Dhanji for many years but this time our first time since the pandemic was rather disappointing in terms of the food. The chicken wings were exceptionally good and spicy but sadly rest of the items were disappointingly sweet ( the Cod sauce and sliders) . This certainly makes us reluctant to return to Dhanji again.

    Food is very good and service is friendly and helpful. The indoor space is very tight and cramped so we opted to eat in one of their individual outdoor rooms, which are air-conditioned and heated. Not the most beautiful room but it was quiet and private.
