Korean
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.

If I could give it 6 stars, I would! Absolutely loved everything. We had the tasting menu for 3, and it was amazing. The service is great; the staff is extremely attentive. We will be back.

We sat outside in a private and warm cabin with a sliding door. We ordered two drinks each and the tasting menu. Everything was delicious, interesting, and plentiful. The staff was nice and efficient - we didn’t have to wait for anything at all!

Charming little place near theaters. Tight quarters inside and only for small parties but they do have some outdoor private tables for those not dining indoors or for a larger party. We got the sampler which was way too much food but gave us an opportunity to try lots of house specialties. Service was great.

We had such a lovely dining experience at Danji! Everyone was so friendly and the tasting menu was amazing! From the sashimi to the bulgogi sliders, the flavors were just wow. We were celebrating an important birthday in NYC and it was everything we wanted for a special meal! Including a little celebratory candle in the ice cream. So thoughtful! Thank you!

Danji continues to be a midtown standout in a sea of mediocre options. Despite only having outdoor reservations available (albeit in their heated fully enclosed huts) the staff offered to graciously switch us to indoors which was a much appreciated surprise.

Danji is a small Korean restaurant in Hells Kitchen area of NYC. We sat outside in on of the individual enclosed booths. We had the tasting menu which was very good. Two people in our party also did the drink pairing which they enjoyed. The service was good and attentive despite us being outside.

Definitely try the favorites menu with pairings (a great value for an amazing experience), but if you limit yourself to individual dishes the tofu and sashimi are must haves!

This place has amazing food. We ordered the tasting menu and everything was over the top good, we wanted to lick every bowl. Service was top-notch. Ambiance is good- it’s a teeny tiny place but they do a good job making it comfortable. Overall one of the best meals I have ever had.

We were seated in a private plywood box between the sidewalk and the street. Parklet variation, part of a Covid adaptation. There was a heater. Very weird. Waiter staff came and went with our dishes through a sliding door. Other patrons were inside the main restaurant. While the food and service were good, eating in a small wooden box is not fine dining.

Was pretty shocked about the price. Definitely one of those modern restaurants that serve fairly good food in small portions but not to the point where I’d want to order another round both because of the monetary and taste value. If you’re on a budget, this would not be on my list of restaurants to recommend but if you have the privilege to spend, worth a try!
