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.

    Indoor dining seems like a noisy crowded experience, but the outdoor booths are quiet and comfortable. The food provided was delicious, although some menu items provide noticeably more bang for the buck. The staff are lovely and helpful.

    Sashimi, tofu and pancake were amazing. The black cod sauce was so overpowering and the rice was over cooked and mushy. Fried rice was good

    Fun nouvelle Korean tapas. Space is very cramped. The bossam is great, scallion pancakes and sashimi are enjoyable. Skip the noodles in black bean sauce.

    Had a pre-show dinner at Danji on Saturday evening. Very happy that I was able to get a last-minute reservation after trying all day. A pretty intimate place, so book early. First off, I have to say the staff was top notch, the host, teh server and workers were both attentive and very helpful. I did not have to ask to refill our water glasses the whole time we were there. It was a nice tough to change dishes for each course, which is an Asian tradition. The appetizer standouts were the hamachi sushimi, the pork belly rolled in daikon and the shrimp and scallion pancakes. All very delicious. We ended up sharing the main course of a beef bulgogi that was more than enough for us. The whole experience was very nice and we will definitely be coming back again to try out other items on the menu!

    The food is not as good as it use to be. I was yesterday night and the cod for 44 dollars where a small little piece. and the rest of the food was nothing to go. The service was good and the place is nice.

    My husband and I ate at Danji while vacationing in NYC. We went right before seeing a play. We ended up ordering from the tasting menu. The food was absolutely delicious and definitely worth the price. The courses were paced so that my husband and I were finished in time for our show. Our server was very friendly and personable. The restaurant is very clean, hip, and trendy! I will make sure to eat at Danji the next time I go to NYC. It’s fabulous!

    Highly recommend. My wife and I have never had Korean food, so this was an experiment for us. We both like spicy food and were pleasantly surprised at the flavor of our meal choices that were recommended by the server. Wild Yellowtail Sashimi, Bulgogi beef sliders, Shrimp & Scallion pancake and Braised black angus short rib

    We really enjoyed this funky little spot for Korean small plates. We had the fried tofu, veggie dumplings, beef sliders and shrimp and scallion pancake. Beef sliders were our favorite. the service was exceptional - they were always there clearing dishes to make space and filling waters without being obtrusive. We loved our pre-show dinner here. Music was funny (some CCR and other random stuff), not bad but didn't feel like it went with the vibe of the place and we noticed it. Nice and warm on a cold November night.
