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.

Ordered tasting menu. Each dish was very good with sliders and tofu being the best. Timing was also very good and we did not feel rushed nor bored between courses.

Had a wonderful dinner! We chose the tasting menu on our servers recommendation and had a great selection of Danji’s excellent choices —the sliders and the wings were among our favorites! Service was nicely paced for our pre theater meal.

Very good food with excellent service! It is a bit noisy, but it is understandable that it is a small space.

I go here regularly and they never disappoint. I would stay away from the whiskey's that tend to be a bit pricey but definitely try the sake. The tasting menu is your best option if you are visiting for the first time.

This is my favorite restaurant in New York City. Outstanding food, and the tasting menu is not prohibitively expensive.

The tofu and pork belly were amazing, wildly wonderful exuberant flavors that were a revelation. The rest of what we ordered was very good, but did not reach the heights of the two dishes noted.

This is great for the between show meal for Harry Potter. Tell them when you have to leave. Have the tasting menu. Excellent food in a timely manner. Right amount so you don’t want to sleep through show. Walk there in 13 mins. 5:15 reservation. Perfect!

My favorite spot in New York. It was every bit as good as I remembered. The spicy rice cakes are awesome. Also loved the pork belly wrapped in daikon. There is nothing like Danji where we live in Florida.

Danji was a great spot for a date night. The food was incredible, and the servers were attentive to my dietary restrictions. The one thing is that half of the dining area is communal tall tables (two narrow tables with 8 seats each), so if that's not comfortable for you I would suggest calling ahead of time to see if they could seat you at the lowtops. For two of us we got two small plates, one medium, and one large and it was the perfect amount. HIGHLY recommend the shrimp & scallion pancake, it was like a large tempura pancake filled with veggies, and the bacon wet kimchi fried rice. I will definitely be going back!

Great food and service! Very small space. Went late in evening when crowds had thinned. Been there before when it was crowded and very loud. Attentive service. Food arrived fast because we had late reservations. Highly recommend!

Noisy, poor service. There are a handful of tables and a communal table, and customers have no say on the seating. Food is OK but not great.

Eduardo served us at The bar and it was spectacular. The food is amazing. We were here last year, and it was even better this time around. We will come back to Danji every time we visit Manhattan.
