Korean or Thai?

Both love Chinese, dim sum and sushi. Other half likes spice but I don't....Was considering a walk to hells kitchen on our first night but now looking at Korea town as it's almost on our doorstep...We have a couple of Thai restaurants in swindon but no Korean so never tried it....For somebody who doesn't do spicy, would hells kitchen or Korea town be more apt for both of our tastes? something quick, cheap and tasty

Why not give Korean a try?

Some are 24/7 so you can stop by after a midnight visit to the Empire State Building.

Tried mandoon bar last night... On 32nd near 5th... The pan fried pork dumplings were the best... Ill never be able to enjoy the pork dumplings from my neighborhood restaurant again! You won't be disappointed.

I think Korean might be the choice! Dumplings sound good. I did see mandoon on yelp and the menu looked nice

Korean will be a nice change for you and is interesting. As you are not fond of spices, perhaps you might want to give a miss to the kim chi.

There is a Korean place in Hells Kitchen, called Danji. But if Korea Town is close to where you are staying you might find something good there anyway.

This is an extract from Ziggy's blog about Danji: "The best Korean Tapas in the area by far. Ok, probably the only one but its still quite good. You will be hard pressed to find better chicken wings in the area, and the sliders aren’t too shabby. Michelin people agree, rewarding it a star soon after opening".

I think Danji might be a bit above our budget. We will be staying at hotel Metro so Korea town looks like it's right by it. I've come across an all you can eat Japanese restaurant in the Korea town area, is it any good? Or would going to a simple Korean restaurant be better for a quick dinner?

There is a Korean restaurant right by Hotel Metro. I stayed at Comfort Inn, two weeks ago, which is right opposite. I was going to try it, but I was with my mum who doesn't entertain anything different where food is concerned! I didn't fancy sitting alone so didn't go there, but I bet its lovely :)

Have a great time

There are about 4 Korean restaurants right by your hotel. Take a look at Cho Dang Gol, or Madangsui for Korean BBQ.

They all look pretty good. Hope they won't be too busy as we won't want to eat too late on our first night
