We're big fans of Korean food and ate here twice in as many days. The lunch time BBQ set menu is delicious and great value.

Atmosphere- Adequate. No outstanding decor, but the place seems clean and well-kept. Spacious too, for a manhattan space.

Service-Excellent. Fast, attentive and friendly!

Food- Very good. The variety and quality of side dishes was exceptional! We ordered lunch boxes that day, and were given a beautiful presentation of flavorful and well-prepared food. This included- marinated sirloin, dumplings, seaweed salad, sushi and noodles. Delicious and filling. Only negative thing I'd mention is that it was such a hodge-podge of Japanese-Korean items. For lunch, it could seem a bit overwhelming- all the options to choose from and trying to eat it all when it comes out. If some of the items were better focused on, rather than adding more to the plate, than I'm sure the food would be even better.

Value- Excellent. For so much food, we payed very little. Two lunch box specials with side-dishes and drinks cost $32.

Delicious food and very authentic,tasty Korean food. Went here with a group of colleagues in preperation for a business trip to Seoul. The food is cooked in front of you and we ordered a variety of dishes. There is plenty to go around so sampling many dishes is the best way to go. Wait staff very attentive and the service was fast. The food was really delicious and the price reasonable.

Stayed 9 days in New York, and 3 nights I went to Madangsui. Just loved the experience there, food is amazing, service is great, very friendly, and nothing better than a good Korean BBQ while drinking Soju; Soju makes the experience much more enjoyable and also makes you eat more!

Came here for lunch with my other half. The service is decent, efficient. There are A LOT of lunch choices. We stuck with the BBQ special bulgogi and spicy chicken. A lot of banchan is served with the meal, which is great. However, the food quality just was lower than I expected after reading some of the reviews.

The atmosphere is... Just ok. I wouldnt bring a date here. Friends maybe. As long as they are OK eating average Korean food.

I'll try another place next time I'm in koreatown.
