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.
Pre show dinner. Amazing food. Great small plates. The food will expand in your stomach so the risk of overeating is high. But that is not always a bad thing :). Definitely recommend if you are looking for something different from traditional pre theater dinner fare.
The food is so amazing at Danji that I am a repeat customer - and I frequently recommend it to my friends.
It is a great spot of dinner. Actually very exciting.
Food is quite creative and nice, perfect service and ok atmosphere (the space has its limitations, but in NY that means that they can probably survive longer and keep their independence, so its fine!).
My only question is about lunch. Whereas dinner is perfect, lunch seems a bit less original and less surprising. Too much rice, noodles, etc.
Over all an amazing spot. Totally recomendable for dinner.
Food was great. Servings are small but tasty and satisfying. I was dissappointed that banyan didn't come with the meal as with traditional korean fare. Banyan trio is good, but pickles were a little too hot to be eaten on it's own. I didn't try the kimchi.
Atmosphere is cramped and seating is uncomfortable. But I guess it is nice that they try to fit in as many reservations as possible into the room. But there is no privacy or romantic atmosphere here. You will be bumping elbows with your neighbors.
This is one of the best restaurants in New York City. The staff is so welcoming and warm and helpful. And the food is outstanding, superb quality, beautifully presented and prepared.
It’s a shame that I can’t offer five stars across the board because the food was very good as well as the ginger jalapeño margarita (fresh ginger - yum!) however, we arrive for our 10:45 PM reservation post-Broadway show and were told the tasting menu was no longer available and were promptly rushed through ordering and service with staff trying to take our dishes before we were finished and not providing ample time between courses. It was clear everyone wanted to go home. Go early instead of late for the best experience - where the service hopefully, matches the food and quaintness of the place.
The food and the service for good. no complaints. My only complaint wasWith OpenTable. When I made the reservation, no mention was made that on Valentine’s Day their usual a la carte menu was switched to a price fixe menu. You’re not the only one surprised with the host seated us, as there were several other couples
Great food and service. The managements attention to detail is always impressive. They remember our name and We feel very welcome when ever we go. One of our favorite places to dine in NYC!
We wanted a tasting menu for less than $100, not easy to find in midtown Manhattan. This wonderful restaurant was only a 10 minute walk from our hotel. The tasting menu ($58 per person) was filling and varied - sushi, tofu, beef, pork and black cod. The service was great and we LOVED it all!
Unusual upscale Korean food attractively presented. Tiny restaurant, very noisy.
Quieter seats are near the bathroom and a place where the servers huddle. Go for the food but not for the ambiance or service.
I got there a little early and was told to wait outside for 10 minutes until they opened... Note that I am a woman of color but when a white couple arrived, about 2 minutes later, they sat them before the official 5:00 pm opening
Everything was great, but we had to wait a long time despite being on time for our reservation.
Close enough to the bustle...but the vibe of a hidden gem. Danji is intimate yet casual. The variety of food choices will satisfy meat and veggie eaters alike. We’ll be back!
Pleasant staff, good food, simple menu. Went there during Sunday brunch for Restaurant Week and ordered the Korean Fried Chicken wings and the sizzingle stone-bowl bibimbap. The food was very tasty, and came out quickly. I would come definitely come again. The regular brunch prices and drink menu look like they'd be worth it!
Ordered the Restaurant month special lunch for $26. The vegetable dumpling was great but the entrees of beef and pork had a tiny amount of meal and all vegetables and rice, very disappointing.
Best kfc wings in nyc. Hands down best hidden restaurant week spot. !!!!! 10/10
The food was excellent but the service very below par. And we felt hurried from the moment we arrived with the food coming out far too quickly, no spaces between the courses and the bill was given to us with our dessert to hurry us out.
Good food, attentive service and generous portions in a cozy setting. Spicy wings are indeed spicy but still yummy. Honey ginger wings were too sweet for me. Shrimp and scallion pancake was okay. Not sure I would order that again. Short rib is awesome! Yummiest dish of the night followed by kimchi fried rice. Back cod was delicious too although a teeny bit sweet. Grapefruit sorbet was perfect dessert. Loved this place.
The Restaurant Week menu was limited but still provided good options and the food was very good. Spicy and interesting. Well prepared. The space is tiny and a bit cramped but the service was good.
Fried chicken is good
Chicken wings undercooked. Mains very good - expensive for what it was (even on restaurant week)
The food is SO GOOD, and SO DELICIOUS. My only feedback is that sometimes the food comes out a little too fast, not giving you enough time to linger and enjoy it. But overall, I LOVE this restaurant and it's food!
Amazing! Get the chefs tasting menu! Half of bottles of wine on Sunday!!!
Very good food but tight space.
They put another customer next to me and I was against the wall and had to pick up my plate to eat.
Truly excellent and interesting food, though a bit pricey. Excellent service. Congenial, cozy environment, though very few regular-height tables were available. Our high tables and stools were tricky for a short person such as myself.
We didn't enjoy the food that was served but the portions were large, it was a great energy in the space, although a little loud with music playing and tight tables, and we enjoyed the location being so close to the times square area which is great for anyone catching an early dinner before a show!
Wonderful grits and broccoli sides!
Great food, great atmosphere
The food was absolutely fantastic. Great service. Priced well. Wait staff was informative, fast and efficient. Pork belly and short ribs were amazing. Also excellent cocktails. The only negative was as a rather tall guy, the chairs were small and uncomfortable. However, I get that in a small NYC restaurant, space is at a premium.
Truly one of the best meals I have had in a restaurant in a long time. Deliciously seasoned and perfectly cooked rice cakes, the tofu dish was so tasty, amazing kimchi and even the edamame we had to start were all different than one would expect and really enjoyable. Even the bottle of Pinot Noir was delicious. Will be back again and again.
Hands down best modern Korean place on the west side and one of the best in the city. Highly recommend the tofu, the welck salad and the black cod!
Everything was perfect. The food was beyond amazing and it was a totally new experience for my wife and I.
Had an amazing dinner, I will be back! So glad I found this restaurant
Went for a pre-theatre meal after searching for aaages to find somewhere to eat before our 8pm show. Stumbled across Danji as it was recommended on a few online lists due to it’s location in the theatre district. Unfortunately we were utterly disappointed and left sick to our stomachs with the outrageous cost of our less than okay meal. Being gluten and dairy free I hadn’t thought it would be an issue but as the menu didn’t have guidelines I didn’t realise until asking the server that basically none of the menu was available for me to order. Turns out they use soy sauce in almost every dish (tamari maybe considered guys?). So, I was left with the sashimi (the one really good dish), the tofu (zero dressing) therefore completely bland and tasteless, the ludicrously overpriced tiny salad ($16!! With only a few leaves and not alot else), the veggie japchae (again bland and no flavour) and the rice and seaweed plate. It seems soy is apparently their only flavour component and without it they’re lost 🙁 My husband also tried the pork belly which was okay he said, and also the scallion pancake which he couldn’t even eat as was dry and not much flavour again.
To be honest the best thing all night was the kimchi! I hate to be negative but I think this “upmarket” Korean food is just a bit characterless! $200 for an unappetising meal which leaves you dissatisfied let’s just say we won’t be recommending it, especially when you’re only here a short while on holiday and every meal is a special occasion it really puts a downer on your special night.
Probably the best meal I've had in that area at that price point. It was wonderfully delicious and I would highly recommend to anyone.
Recommend you to order the course which js $58 per person. Everything except for the chicken and the beef/pork sandwich was so perfect. Even a big male person will be pretty much very full after the course.
Great for before theater. Very attentive staff. Caters to specific food restrictions
great pre-theatre place for dinner! Food was mostly excellent, one dish was just OK. My son loved the chicken wings, couldn't stop raving!
I absolutely loved the food. Totally the type of vibe I wanted
