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.

    Good service, the food was hit or miss. The sea bass was so salty it was almost inedible, but the scallion pancake and beef bibimbap were tasty.

    First time eating at Danji and it was soooo good! We ate in one of the private outdoor dining rooms so that was very private and quiet. Our server and all the staff were so kind and accommodating. My whole group very much enjoyed ourselves!!

    I took my brother here for his birthday and we had the tasting menu with the drink pairing. It was a generous amount of food and beverage and everything was delicious! A great variety all around. The service was fantastic and I love the ambiance--great music and lighting.

    This was my first time back since the pandemic and was disappointed. I had a reservation initially for 2 but called to change to solo due to unforeseen circumstances. The person on the phone made no mention that I would be seated at the bar. MaItre’d was a little prickly and later another solo diner came in and was given a table. The bartender was very nice but the food and drink weren’t nearly as good as I remember. If you’re going to go out of your way to make solo diners uncomfortable then maybe u shouldn’t allow reservations for one.

    Usually I LOVE Danji. But yesterday it was off. They forgot our drinks order, we had finished 2 courses before we got our cocktails. And the $52 short ribs were inedible. Even with a knife & fork you couldn’t cut them & they were 60% fat, 40% tough chewy awful meat. It seemed like no one was on their game.

    Honestly, Danji is one of my favorite Korean joints in Manhattan. The food is of amazing quality and has such a nice variety of options. I always sit at the bar and enjoy my experience there. The bartender is very friendly, works efficiently, and addresses all your needs no matter how busy the night is. We participated in the restaurant week menu this time and enjoyed it so much! The Short ribs were absolutely amazing and the black sesame ice cream at the end was a perfect size and finish to an awesome meal! Will definitely be back! Especially since they will be getting their rice cakes back!!

    We have been customers of Dhanji for many years but this time our first time since the pandemic was rather disappointing in terms of the food. The chicken wings were exceptionally good and spicy but sadly rest of the items were disappointingly sweet ( the Cod sauce and sliders) . This certainly makes us reluctant to return to Dhanji again.

    Food is very good and service is friendly and helpful. The indoor space is very tight and cramped so we opted to eat in one of their individual outdoor rooms, which are air-conditioned and heated. Not the most beautiful room but it was quiet and private.

    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

    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.

    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.
