Very warm ambiente, accurate, clean and high quality food. We had the "noodles zen" and the "avocado stone bowl", a perfect mix of different flavours and perfumes. A total surprise for me - egg and caseine intolerant - and my partner -vegetarian-. Thank you

I went to this place with my friend and instantly this place resonates with Korean dining having been to Seoul myself some years ago. The ambience was great and good was simply refreshing which reminded me of my visit to Korea. Excellent service by staff too.. would recommend to go there.

Enjoyable restaurant with many good dishes. We especially liked the "todok stone bowl rice". Typically their dishes were not spicy, but this one was. Limited wine selection. Be alert that you will need to remove your shoes on entry.

It was my birthday dinner with close friends. As always, the food was great but even greater was the service we received from OJ. (I hope I didn't get his name wrong.) No pressure, thoughtful and sincere recommendations, very friendly attitude. Never wrote anything we ordered and never forgot a thing. So far the best waiter I have ever had... More

I ate lunch and dinner here on different days, and both times the food and low-key service were very good. The huge variety of options makes choosing difficult.

This restaurant (as others have pointed out) is a vegan Korean, and the food is absolutely delicious. Our server was really attentive and I liked the fact that they added the sauces to the stone bowl table side, so that you could tell them how spicy you liked it (or not, of course). It was very busy, but service wasn't... More

Very satisfying meal at this lovely NYC spot. House saki to start followed by pancake appetizer and stone bowl. Every meal tastes better in a steaming stone bowl! I had the Mediterranean stone bowl with brown rice, avocado, tomato, and tofu "chicken." Service was lovely without being intrusive - had time to sit and talk. Enough interesting things on the...

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.
