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.

This was our second time at Danji. The food is amazing and the atmosphere is really wonderful. Without asking, they brought ice cream with a candle for the birthday we were celebrating. Don't miss the bossam, which we have had both trips. What a dish!

Wow!
This is one of our all time favorites! Everything was great! Spicy yellowtail, Tofu w. Ginger scallion, and bossam were all fantastic!
Very small NYC restaurant, with a really cool vibe. Can’t wait to go back and try the entire menu.

We stopped by for lunch since we were craving Bim bop. The bim bop was a little small but very delicious. We also ordered pan fried gyoza which were excellent

The staff was super nice and I think it’s a perfect place for lunch

Some of the best food I’ve ever had. Truly memorable. Only complaint, it’s too tight and seating uncomfortable. I wasn’t able to completely immerse myself because the seats are too hard, and you’re on top of each other.

Would highly recommend for a pre-show meal. Food was very good and arrived quickly- which would be perfect if you have a show to catch. Great option in an area not known for good food

Superb cuisine. We had the prix fixe/tasting menu. More food than we could eat but good amount for younger folks. One of top 2 meals in last few months.

Very casual neighborhood restaurant with great vibes and food. It is a little on the expensive side, especially if sitting at a high communal table but an overall very good experience.

Horrible experience. Much of the staff could be seen taking shots behind the bar throughout the night.

I’m 3 years sober and ordered a lemonade, they served me a drink full of whisky. Totally inappropriate. Food is good but the staff is a liability.

The food was fantastic. Great pre-theater spot. Definitely recommend the tasting menu.
We had a minor issue wasn’t immediately rectified by the manager, but it was resolved to my satisfaction in the end.

Second time there. It’s been a couple of years since the last time. Everything pretty good except the service which at the start was slow. Were there a while before our first attention.

We were seated at a communal table that seats 8 people. Once you get used to bumping elbows, it’s not bad at all. They have a full bar and the wines are decent. We decided to try the tasting menu for 2 and this is where the fun started. Every dish they served was outstanding. Excellent presentation and amazing flavors. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Amazing atmosphere and delicious food. We went there following a broadway show and it was perfect. The staff was knowledgeable and made great recommendations. The kimchi fried rice was fantastic and the pork belly sliders were so juicy and flavourful.

A small quiet restaurant with good lighting, attentive service, and outstanding food at very reasonable prices for the excellent quality of the food. Their wines are nice too, and they bring the bottle to the table, let you taste it, then pour your glass. As it should be! I will be returning.

Danji is a very fun, tiny, Korean restaurant slightly off the beaten track on west 52nd street. People have found it nonetheless, and a reservation is usually necessary. The first time you go, you might want to have their tasting menu, which will give a good overview of the dishes. If you feel braver, just go for what appeals to you most on the menu. Our favorites include the tofu, rice cakes with sausage, scallion and shrimp pancake, and black cod with miso. They also have spicy wings and bulgogi sliders. It's possible to sit at the bar, at high top tables that seat six, or at conventional height tables in the rear (my preference). Full bar available. The staff is nice and will explain dishes to you.

Elbow-to-elbow space with amazing food. A reservation is a must. Chicken wings, bulgogi, and kimchi were delicious - flavorful with a spicy kick! Bring a friend and share 3 or 4 plates!

Small cozy ambience
High top tables are communal seating but not bothersome
A few regular tables in the back too
Staff was very helpful and attentive-we had the tasting menu and everything was delicious and a lot of food for the value
Perfect for pre- theatre dinner

Very nice dinner, tried the black cod and a couple of starters. Also had a cocktail. The food was very tasty, the service fast and attentive, the ambience lively. The prices were quite high though which is the only issue I see.
