We ate at OIJI for 2nd time. Instense interesting flavors, just as good the 2nd time! My wishlist: for them to use gluten free soy sauce so I can eat larger portion of menu! That would separate them from all other Korean.

Food was good but a little pricey. Among the 3 of us ladies, we ordered everything to share: Fried chicken, Oiji bowl, Jang jo rim, Ssam platter & the honey butter chips with vanilla ice cream. The Ssam platter was really delicious and the dessert is something that should not be missed. Probably the best dessert I’ve had and I am not a dessert person.

Do note that the place can be very noisy and my friends and I had to shout in order to hear each other. So if you’re looking to have a nice dinner with your other half, it’s not the most romantic place.

Service is impeccable and I really enjoyed my time there despite the noise level.

I first came to OIJI when it first opened and it was fantastic then. Today the restaurant has evolved to becoming something truly remarkable. Every dish is so beautifully presented and thoughtfully plated to be considered art on a plate. This in no way compromises for incredible tastes, flavours and imagination which should be deemed worthy of a Michelin star or two!

Food was great, we like the seafood soup the most. The only issue is too noisy. Customers were arranged to sit pretty close, not much privacy.

Fantastic overall. The lobster ramen was surprisingly flavorful and rich, while being light at the same time. The duck on top of duck confit was mouthwateringly incredible and the ice cream for dessert was the cherry on top. Oh, and the fried chicken is a must. Go to this place if you get the chance. Between 2 people we had 2 apps and 2 entrees and a drink each and dessert and it was 95 a person after tax but there is no need to spend that much at all. Be prepared to spend closer to 70 though - not cheap.

I would never write a review for a place, mostly out of laziness, but Oiji deserves a 5 star review. From the ambiance to the amazing food, this was a great find. Normally, Korean food I would find in New York is mostly hole-in-the-wall, good, and cheap. This, while more expensive, has amazing, colorful and flavorful dishes that you couldn't find at another Korean restaurant. If you haven't gone and you like Korean food, it is a must go.

Not your same old Korean Restaurant! Farm to table ingredients, tasteful mash-up of contemporary cuisine, well soaked in Korean umami, artistically arranged on small plates. Everyone at our table tasted everything and we kept ordering more. Hard surfaces make OIJI a noisy place but it's small, so not deafening.

The food was incredible! Texture nuances, layered flavors and visual appeal. This is the best non-traditional gourmet Korean food I've ever had. Including when I visited Seoul. The calamari is one example! Legs fried and crispy, heads grilled and tender, served over smoked mushrooms with crisp cucumbers and delicious sauce poured table side.

We are tourists coming from Israel, was looking to have a romantic meal, after a lot of thought we decided to try this place, one of the dishes hasn’t come after more then 40 minutes!!! And the waiter kept on telling us it will take 3 minutes, we don’t like to be lied
