We went here for restaurant week and Bann did not disappoint. The appetizer portions were generous! The chicken wing and dumplings were delicious! Entrees were also generous. My friend ordered the Korean bbq- beef bulgogi. And I got the bi bim bap. The meat and vegetables were all very fresh! Would definitely come here again and not just for restaurant week!

The food was great. It should be we cooked it ourselves. The Service was poor.
Might add, We've eaten there several times this was the only time we had bad service.

We tried this spot during restaurant week, ordered the beef rib eye spicy korean bbq which was amazing. The food serving proportions was good to share, we also ordered the wok fried rice with shrimp. The cocktails were tasty, tried the lychee martini and ginger lemonade. We tried the omija dragon (pastry with ice cream) for desert and it was delicious. 😋 will definitely come again for the food and drinks. The decor was standard and vibe was relaxed.

We tried Bann for brunch for restaurant week and I have to say we had plenty to eat...the pork bun was quite tasty and had a zing to it...we also enjoyed the Korean barbecue but was a bit disappointed in the pork belly (which I usually love) but just seemed a bit tough to chew-otherwise, I would say try it as it is conveniently located near the theater.

We enjoyed NYC restaurant week lunch. What a great value! Plenty of delicious food, good service.
The entry is nice, but the main hall can use a face lift. Besides that, the food is worth it.

I went to Baan during restaurant week and enjoyed an awesome deal. The food was delicious and fresh and the leechi martinis were great. Will go again during happy hour! The pork belly buns and wings were to die for!

We took family for their birthday/anniversary dinner during Restaurant Week on their visit to NYC. The entrees were big portions and very flavorful and we really liked the Omija Dragon for dessert. What we really enjoyed the most was the Mandu and the Beef Jap Chae. The restaurant read our OpenTable reservation and surprised with a happy birthday song, which she enjoyed. Would go again. Especially for that Jap Chae.

Although it was a different experience, (grilling at our table)we found the food to be too salty and the noise level high. The service was friendly and efficient.

Very fun dining experience being able to grill your own meat at your table. The food was all delicious and well prepared. I took about two hours for the entire dining experience the service was very good but my server seem to forget about me at the end. Not checking on me for about 45 minutes. Whatever soon as I alerted another waiter he was able to get me my check. We’re dine here again

This place is a lot smaller than I anticipated. I also felt the decor would be more "date-night-ish" Went during restaurant week and ordered Korean BBQ for our main course where we cooked our own food at the table. The meat was well seasoned. We did not feel rushed, the staff were good and overall I enjoyed my experience. The only thing that sucked was the bathroom was extremely filthy.

Food and service were good. I dined on a hot summer afternoon and there were standing fans all over dining room and it didn’t feel like they had AC. Neither a good look nor a good feel.

Always a great experience; fun and high- end.
We come here regularly with small groups because it’s more spacious than a traditional Manhattan restaurant.
Not cheap, but high quality and excellent food.
Good cold sake variety.

This modern Korean restaurant would be a great choice for people wanting to try Korean food. I treated my non-Korean boyfriend who has celiac and they were very accommodating. They have a separate gluten free menu and provide you with sides that are all gluten free. He was very pleased with the food and the whole experience. I highly recommend!
