Korean counter is fantastic. I go there several times a week. Price is low and food is excellent for what you pay.

I have been looking for Korean food in the area for a while (being too lazy to walk all the way down to K-town) and I happened upon this place based on this site. People, the food is good. I agree that the other reviewer that complained about his shrimp fried rice needs to have a reality check. It's Korean food in the back of a deli. You can't complain when you order shrimp fried rice encased in an omlette. I mean, the description is pretty clear so I don't know what he could have expected. And insofar as it is korean food in the back of a deli, it is really good and pretty authentic. I had the soon dubu jigae and it is just as good as any soon dubu restaurant. There are some delis that serve korean food intermittently, but, this place actually has real korean dishes and although maybe not as good as a full blown korean restaurant, it is pretty darn good for what it is (korean food in the back of a deli). So, for those of you craving korean during lunch and don't want to walk all the way down to K-town, this place will totally satisfy your craving.

to the previous reviewer: you're ordering korean food from a stand in the back of a deli. call me crazy but i wouldn't go in expecting any iron chef cuisine (the food is in fact pretty good but that is beside the point). his complaint seems to imply that while he would happily "cook shrimp fried rice all day" (somehow for a cost less than $10) he would be incapable of whipping up an omelet. that is why he is upset with ambrosia, they gave him a fried egg instead of an omelete. this spot is solid. you get what you pay for.

These guys do not know how to speak english and messed up two orders in one sitting. Make sure to order by the number and letter of the meal instead of saying it in english. My friend ordered a "shrimp fried rice wrapped in egg" and they came out with just shrimp fried rice... dude.. I am chinese, I can cook fried rice all day! Why would I pay 10 bucks a pop for simply shrimp fried rice? When this was brought to their attention, the guy simply fries an egg and places it on top. This lonely, tiny piece of egg that barely covers a quarter of the surface is supposed to satisfy? It's supposed to look like a fried rice omelette! Then the bibimbap comes out with no egg and no red sauce so they once again fry an egg and place it on top and hand me some chinese takeout chili. I argued with them and got our money back. I would not come back again.

Ambrosia has one of the BEST Korean food in Manhattan! The trick is to call ahead of time and order - and VOILA! The food is ready when you get there! Also, if you are a vegetarian, ask for "bibimbap" in the rock bowl without any eggs or beef but instead ask for tofu. Also try their soups - it comes in the rock bowl - if you're a vegetarian - ask for no beef broth. For Vegetarians, try their soon dubu jigae. Ambrosia has Yummy Healthy Food!

I usually get a sandwich from this place every day of the week. The meats are awesome. They really know how to make a sandwich and everyone is very pleasant. Great deals!

This deli is trying to be something for everyone. Pizza, sandwiches, buffet of over 100 items, udon, mexican, and if you keep going....way in the back is a Korean counter. I got bibambap today. For $7.50 it was enough for lunch and dinner. Came with soup, kimchi, and 3 banchan side dishes. It was awesome. Highly recommend.
