Soju, this is the most popular liquor in Korea and it represents Korean liquor. The motive for opening Soju Haus is to impact others in the way that Soju, Korean liquor has helped everyone. In food culture, liquor and food are always having a connection. Because Korean food is not excellent with wine or whiskey, Soju Haus serves real Korean food which works well with Soju and any traditional Korean liquor. Soju Haus would like to spread Korean culture in New York City which is by far the most influential trendsetter in the food/culture industry. Soju Haus offers simple, well-known ingredients, generous servings, and comfort that can give good company with others while enjoying great food and liquor. This is a business that expresses its fine composite art that extenuates Korean dining and its rich food culture.

My favorite Korean in the neighborhood! Always delicious and a vibrant crowd! Mixed it up this visit and tried the braised Monkfish. Spicy and comforting on a pre Thanksgiving bash. Can’t wait to return.

We had such a fun night at Soju Haus. The staff helped us pick some great dishes. We tried the Haus Cucumber Soju Cocktail and a Frozen Beer with Sizzling Bulgolgi and Chive Pancake. Everything was amazing, service was wonderful. Helpful and attentive, but not rushing us out. Good to knows: they only accept cash and AmEx, the elevator is TINY (like no more than 2 people fit)and the low top tables have seats that you can store your stuff in, like seriously pick up the cushion and shove your jacket in there.

I loved all the food! The staff was the friendliest, most helpful! We were going to order two pitchers of drinks and our waiter automatically didn't just say yes to a bigger check, he cautioned us to have one, and if we want a second one he would be more then happy to bring us our second choice! We asked several members of the staff for recommendations and they were friendly and great recommendations! Even though we were there for hours (eating & drinking) and it got busier later in the night, they didn't rush us out. The decor, food, and ambiance were great! Also, how do they get the bathrooms to smell so good?!

Great food and drinks! Recommend baby back ribs (especially they are on special menu, really worth it!) and fruit-flavored soju!

Spicy sea food soup is very delicious and the material is fresh, but the clam soup tasted a little strange and too light. I love pancake and rice ball the most, they are traditional and classic.

Price was reasonable. Service was good overall. They only take Amex, which is okay but i prefer to use my Chase Sapphire Reserve (visa) for restaurants.

This place is on second floor of a doorman building. It's worthwhile to ask the doorman where this restaurant is and then you will be directed upstairs. Really interesting and tasty food. They gave me a fork!

We had to add a person to our table, staff was super kind to let us, they were very polite. We absolutely loved our waitress who gave some suggestions on food selection. The food was excellent, though the soju was slightly disappointing as it was a bit weaker then expected.

The restaurant itself is very nice. It's in a good location as well. Overall everything was great.

Very cool koreatown scene. The food is amazing. It is loud but it makes it feel very energetic. It’s dark. The soju cocktails are amazing. Especially the grapefruit one.

This place is literal garbage when it comes to the food. It is an injustice to the great restaurants in K town. If you’ve ever had Korean food, don’t come here, you’ll be disappointed with what they serve.

I went to Soju Haus with a couple friends to end my birthday weekend and we had an absolute blast. I was extremely looking forward to the flavored Soju since NYC is the only place I can get it and I love in PA. I made a reservation at 6 but we got there a bit early because we were hungry. We were seated right away and given water and glasses. We ordered a couple dishes to share and a couple bottles of Soju and enjoyed everything. I especially like the spicy pork and squid stir fry. The sauce was the right combo of spicy and flavorful. The pork was perfect and easy to bite into since there were only chopsticks and no knives. One waitress who had a wonderful accent was very helpful telling us about certain dishes since we were unfamiliar with Korean cuisine. I know that the next time I go back to NYC I'll be making another reservation there. 👍🏻

From the ambience and the energy in the space , it is the best NYC Korean BBQ that strongly holds the best;ambience , service and hospitality and true knowledge on the food item . They will inform you if you over order and share with you that one order can be shared between 2-3 people . I thought that was very kind of them. Our server was super ! And our BBQ ribs were the best I have had in nyc a long with the spicy shrimp and vegetable dish ( both are highly recommended ). I do not like seaweed and the seaweed rice bowl as a restaurant hospitality to the table was DELISH! we are looking forward to our next hosting at soju .

The Korean food here is very different than what I was expecting. I still don't know how I feel about it, it doesn't taste bad, it's just different. We ordered what our waitress recommended: chicken stew, pork belly, and bbq chicken and cheese, all with rice (but the rice was with either dry nori or anchovies). I wouldn't go back and prefer the other Korean restaurants in the area.

Very bad experience, we waited at least 20 minutes after seated for someone to take our order. And the food was incredibly flavorless. We had the bbq chicken with cheese and grilled beef intestines, both tasted horrible. Spicy noodle with kimchi tasted like noodles soaked in hot water for 2 minutes. Avoid this place, go to Pocha32, her name is han for much better quality food and cheaper price.

always remember, its only cash/American express! If you don't have cash they have an atm machine. Get the Whole Squid within the grilled menu.

We went this place for a friends get together. But this place is too noisy, you can never hear what the others say unless they were screaming. Frankly speaking, the foot, especially the pig feet was nice. One stupid thing is that they only accept amex card and cash.

I love this place!! It's fantastic food, great drink selection, and fun. (Plus, free rice before 8 - important!!)

The only downside is that it's cash only or American Express.

The food was over-rated, including the daily special chicken soup, it was so plain and taste-less, and the place was so loud that it was completely impossible to talk

Food is really delicious!! I like the chicken with cheese, and budae jjigae. However, the service is just so-so and the environment is a little noisy. It is disappointing that they only accept cash. So if you just want to have a delicious meal, this is the best place. But it's definitely the best place for special occasion or dating.
