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.

    The space is small but definitely vibey. We were seated at the bar and enjoyed interacting with the bartender through out our meal. The food came out quick and was beyond delicious. Drinks were also 10/10. We chose to do the restaurant week menu which was a great amount of food for the price. Can’t wait to return!

    Love the food and service. We had the yellowtail sashimi which was just excellent, spicy and cool in the right balance. The fried tofu which was an incredibly soft texture with a delicious sauce, and the scallion pancake which was the best take on this dish I've ever had. The bibimbop was a touch disappointing because the pan was simply not hot enough to give it that crisp browned edge. But still, lovely

    My wife and I had the tasting menu for two, and it was just terrific. Each dish was well presented, inventive and delicious, and the drinks were at the same level. Service was attentive and friendly. The atmosphere was cheering and uplifting. A dining experience to repeat!

    Danji is one of my favorite restaurants and I was so happy to come back after being away for so long. The food and service were great, as always. I was sad to see my favorite dish, the rice cakes, no longer on the menu and wish the online menu would've been updated to reflect that. I also would have loved to know beforehand that we were sitting in the outside structure. It wasn't too warm but the ambiance out there is just not the same as inside.

    Had the tasting menu for 3 which was a lot of delicious dishes. Curiously, they brought out 2 bowls of rice and 2 small bowls of sorbet…for 3 person meal…a bit odd.

    Excellent staff. Really nice venue and seating space. We enjoyed all our food. Got to try a lot of dishes but all portions were big so we probably could have tried fewer dishes than the restaurant week fix price for a better spend.

    Excellent food. Korean food taken to the next level without trying to be pretentious. Sophisticated presentation of true Korean flavors. The dishes tasted like mom made them but looked like they came out of a gallery. I don’t know how to describe, but I really appreciated the Chef’s own take on traditional Korean dishes that were nouveau cuisine yet still tasted so deeply rooted in old tradition. The service was amazing as well. I’m so annoyed that I’ve only now discovered this place! Can’t wait to dine again.

    The food has changed a lot compared 2016 when I frequently visited. The portion is a lot bigger and the taste not as delicate as before. Overall the food is good but not as special as it used to be.

    If I could give the service at Danji more than 5 stars, I would. They went above and beyond for our group of 4 last night. We booked an indoor table and unfortunately they weren't able to accommodate us at first, we got to sit at the bar eventually and bought us our first round and even some appetizers to make up for it. We got most of the menu, bulgogi sliders, shashimi, scallion pancake, wings, kimchi fried rice, everything was SO good! The food was amazing, the ambience was great but the staff there is the best!

    The food was quite good. The flavors were something I don't think I ever tasted before. My date and I had the tasting menu. Everything from the Wild Yellowtail to the Tofu, to the Chicken Wings were extravagant. There is more than enough food for 2. We couldn't even finish the Soy Poached Black Cod part of the menu, we had to get it go. Overall, very good food and great ambience. Highly recommend.

    I can't understand why this place got a Michelin recommendation. We ordered the tasting menu. Of the seven dishes, only two were very good: the black cod and the pork belly. The rest was closer to peasant food than sophisticated New Korean. And they tried to force kinchi on you at every turn: they even had a dish dedicated to three varieties. Their website showed the tasting menu price as $68, but when we got there it was $73. You certainly don't expect to share ice cream at that price.

    Danji was in top form as usual, with delicious food and attentive service. We had the fried tofu, scallion pancake, bibimbap, vegetable dumplings. Dessert was back bean ice cream. All delish. The one drawback is the noise, which makes it hard to hear even the person right in front of me.

    We had the tasting menu for 2 people. It was enough for 3 or 4. Everything was extremely tasty with unique flavors and cooked perfectly. They have a small restaurant and bar with a moderate amount of seats. We would definitely return. If you enjoy Korean food this is a great choice.

    We sat in the private booths outside - it’s great that they’re air conditioned, but they felt a little stuffy. I’d still go back in a heartbeat. Service was fantastic, food was absolutely incredible, and with the tasting menu there was so much of it that we left stuffed and with leftovers. It’s worth visiting for sure.
