Korean

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.

    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.

    We had the tasting menu, which enabled us to sample the range of cuisine, but we couldn’t finish it, as the portions were quite big and several items were deep-fried.

    Came here on a friday night before a broadway show. We had the tasting menu for two and it was amazing. Delicious and worth the value. The staff was super attentive and made sure we got out of the restaurant in time to make it to our show.

    The atmosphere is great considering how small and off the beaten path Danji is. The food was good but not exceptional. The service was great and they were very attentive. Pricing was a bit on the high side but, it is NYC afterall.
