Fodor's Review

Diminutive and dark, Danji is no ordinary Korean restaurant. Helmed by talented chef Hooni Kim, this Hell's Kitchen spot is a standout among the rows of restaurants that attract theater-going tourists in the neighborhood. That's because Kim's take on Korean cuisine is inventive and inspired. The menu is split in two, and both sides contain a number of winnning dishes. Start with the scallion and pepper pancake and the trio of kimchi from the "traditional" side, then set

your taste buds singing with Korean chicken wings and unctuous pork belly sliders from the "modern" side of the menu. Then count your blessings that you're not eating a mediocre meal like the rest of the out-of-town visitors in the neighorhood.

Serve food in tiny dishes, and get a Michelin star

I don't get Danji's recent accolades...for Korean, it's pretty bland. You can't just ask the chili paste to do the heavy-lifting. I don't remember the last time I left a Korean place w/ a half-empty stomach. $14 for lunch is a steal but left me seeking out a make-up meal elsewhere.

Amazing bibim-bop!

I go to Danji periodically with colleagues, since I'm lucky enough to work close by. It's always a hit. Super fresh, with excellent flavors, you can't go wrong with any dish. My favorite is the Farmers Market Bibim-Bop. Sticky rice, lots of veggies, a fantastic slightly spicy sauce, and the most luxurious, lightly fried egg - I'm always scraping the bowl! Don't miss the bulgogi sliders, either!
