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 doors were shuttered, chained with deadbolt locks. Sign posted on door from Dept of Buildings read “conditions in these premises are imminently perilous to life”.

    Really a fantastic experience. Food is delicious and well portioned. I tried kimchi for the first time and enjoyed it! Loved the table drawers and the spoon wall. Excellent service and fun space. Was a tad bit loud but that’s New York City!

    Food was good but very over-priced. We came pre-pandemic and enjoyed the restaurant, but given what we paid this time for what we got (we eat Korean food all the time so paying $12 for over-ripe kimchi was symbolic of our dining experience), we will likely not be returning.

    The decor had me when I walked in. Service was lovely and the food was delicious. We are tourists who were looking for something that wasn’t in the hubbub of Broadway. Danji was perfect. We will most definitely return.

    Danji is an excellent upscale Korean restaurant that serves memorable dishes in a relaxed, but buzzing dining room/bar setting. We found that the tasting menu for four provided many delightful dishes ranging from tasty bulgogi sliders to an elegant black cod main dish. Service was very good also.

    We always enjoy Danji. The food is outstanding. We chose the tasting menu, so we spent a little more than we would have had we chosen separately. Service was excellent. The restaurant is small, with seating for approximately 25 people, so it can feel crowded when all the seats are occupied.

    Food was not worth the price. There’s nothing upscale or innovative. Vegetables had no flavoring with the short ribs for $52. Kimchi has tasted better out of a jar. For restaurant week we spent $180 for 2 including tip. There are plenty of K-town spots far superior for these prices. The outdoor experience was private and warm, but loud. You can hear conversations very clearly from other rooms and the doors slam quite a lot.

    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!
