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.

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!

We had the delicious tasting menu which was a bargain at the very reasonable price given the quantity of tasty food. They even managed to convert my husband to tofu - a true achievement. Excellent, friendly service as well. Recommended.

I came here for the KFC and it did not disappoint, however, the tasting menu was very heavy and honestly some of the dishes just weren't very tasty. I had trouble eating the last course because I was so full from the heavy courses leading up to it.

Such an awesome dinner. Two of us shared 4 dishes and they were equally enjoyable: textures, balanced flavors with all those wonderful Korean ingredients! Soju and barley beer were excellent accompaniments. Friendly, warm and courteous service. Can’t wait to come back.

My partner and I had very high expectations for this place given that we'd been cooking recipes from chef Hooni Kim's cookbook My Korea for several months prior. But the food just didn't live up to the hype--nor did it justify the extremely high prices. If you're going to charge $24 for six teensy slices of yellow tail it'd better be mindblowing and instead it was just meh. Similarly the bulgogi sliders came on soggy buns and the $8 banchan (which is typically free in Korean restaurants) was underseasoned and bland. If you want awesome Korean food at a fraction of the price head out to Flushing, but don't waste your time and money here.

Wonderful food and wine. Everything was amazing, but especially the yellowtail sashimi and the spicy rice cakes! Perfect place for dinner before a show, on a more quiet street and as far away from Times Square as we could get while still in walking distance to the theaters.

Our family visited Danji for the after Broadway dining. The service was really good and the outside dining booths were convenient but not elegant. Good for groups and laughs and great convo. The food was tasty and fulling, not Michelin level but good for tapas fun.

Terrific food, almost too attentive service, little individual shack outside is unusual and kind of fun. I recommend the tasting menu with alcohol pairing. Everything delicious. Particularly liked sliders, scallion pancake, fish.
