My boyfriend suggested this place with the good reviews. I was pleasantly surprised , very nice seating experience and decor. I recommend the kale/pumkin pancake mix, the mushroom fritters and stuffed portobello mushrooms

We visited this very interesting resaurant, our first night out in NY. You take off your shoes, sit in very low tables, getting prepared for a great experience. It was perfect, well prepared, balanced and tasty. Bit expensive for us, but well deserved. Looking forward to our next visit in NY. Do not forget to drink their tea at the... More

We reserved a table at Hangawi after listening to reviews and we made the right decision. The ambience of the restaurant is excellent and a lot of thought has been put into furnishing the restaurant. When you enter the restaurant you are asked to remove your shoes. These are neatly stacked away by the wait staff once you proceed to... More

Great experience overall! Delicious food, nice warm feet without shoes on the heated floor, very good and spicy ginger tea. We had starters and main course, just too bad I didn't have any space left to try the desserts, next time ! The main course came in a hot bowl & I had to stir in the miso and the... More

Everything about this experience was wonderful. From the amazing service, to the warm, earthy atmosphere, and of course, the incredible food. This was honestly one of my best experiences at a restaurant. As a vegetarian, I appreciate being able to look at anything on the menu and be able to order without any worries in the back of my mind.... More

Went there with my husband and his two sister about 2 years ago. I was the only vegetarian in our group and they were a bit suspicious if we were going to have a good dinner in a vegetarian Korean restaurant. For everyone's surprise we did have not only an amazing dinner but one of the best dishes of our... More

how to make miracles with vegetables. Nice setting, very good service - pricey but definitely not overpriced for the quality you get. Highly recommended

This place is amazing.. a low floor seating (with pit tables so that u still can sit with your legs hanging like in chair though you have to remove shoes before) the food is sooo yum and healthy and fresh that you are spoilt for choices and flavours!

We went here on our first night in NYC and could not have been happier with our choice - the bar has been set for the rest of our trip. The service was great, the food delicious and beautifully presented, and the cocktails were good. Only slight downside was that we were sat by the radiator so we were far... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
