I am Korean, and in my opinion, this is one mediocre Korean restaurant. For some reason, there is a buzz among my Korean colleagues, I've never understood why. The food is carelessly prepared to me. I would say the palette there is crude and rough.

If you're looking for Korean in Manhattan, and it doesn't have to be a sizzle-your-own BBQ style place, this is the best. I've eaten Korean in many cities and countries, and Han Bat is both authentic and delicious. Their prices are good, their service isn't friendly (no Korean restaurant in the city provides that) but not pushy, and the food is just amazing. I ordered an amazing dumpling plate and was blown away by size and taste. Their Bibimbap is very good, and they will make it without meat for vegetarians. This is a great spicy escape in busy Midtown.

I am 100% Korean. THIS is AUTHENTIC Korean food. Best Gob-dol-Bibim-bab (hotpot) in the entire world! And believe me, I would know. Its been tested and tried against chefs in both the United States (including Hawaii and Alaska), Canada, and the mother country itself, and let me tell you, Hanbat still rules high and mighty above all the rest! Um. What more can I say? If you want real Korean food, these are the people to go too. And its cheap too. Support them, I give them my love. I love this place. Need you ask more?

Han Bat offers authentic Korean cuisine 24 hours a day. The service is fast, but it is sometimes crowded with regulars. The food can be on the spicy side. For a non-spicy, delicious alternative, try Bul Go Ki: thinly sliced, slightly sweet beef with onions and mushrooms served with white rice. Don't forget to order the pan fried Korean dumplings (Man Doo Gui). They're my favorite item on the menu!
