    Disappointing!

    No reason to go there--unless you would enjoy the nice repro Korean decor--more authentic than the food. Small portions of mostly rice, almost no vegetables. Mediocre service. Very noisy--filled with young people who perhaps do not understand real food beyond burgers. And at $26 the "entrees" (not very big bowls of rice & a very few veg) are truly a rip-off.

    Emperor's new clothes

    The check for 4 people last night was $300 for 4 appetizers, 4 bowls of rice, 3 bottles of saki, 4 drinks and 1 dessert. The meal was a huge mushy disappointment. Everything tasted the same and, apart from the charming rustic decor, has no connection what so ever with Korean food - and I lived in Korea. Call yourself a vegan shrine and people will believe you.

    Fake Korean

    This place was a great disappointment as a dinner destination for my family. I've eaten in hundreds of Korean restaurants both in the states and in Korea including Korean vegetarian restaurants. Most of the vegetarian places in Korea are Buddhist restaurants with a wide variety of seasonal vegetables. A typical place would have a number of wild greens (mountain greens), various root plants, and a many styles of mushrooms with rice and beans. The typical Korean meal will have many small dishes with a wide variety of tastes from bitter to sweet, hot and spicy with a highly balanced styles. Hangawi, seductive to the average Westerner because of its decor, is a total fake. The food is bland, fried and not prepared with any sense of the depth of style in Korean cooking. This place lacks the total essence of spices, variety, and healthy cooking. I shake my head in disbelief that the place even failed at making a good bowl of rice! The desert ended up being an off-the-shelf, low quality American pudding. Shame, Shame, Shame. There are many good Korean restaurants on 32nd Street in NYC - this is one of the worst.

    Awesome

    I had an awesome time, i enjoyed the food, though pricey to eat it was spectacular! my taste buds were almost as pleased as i was with our waitress, the chef really does know what he's doing in that kitchen! i cannot wait to return!

    Missing it

    We moved to London recently from NY and absolutely miss this place. Have eaten there numerous times in last 5-6 yrs and have a great meal every time. We are Vegetarian and this place is almost as best one could get in Korean food . Looking forward to coming back to NYC and visiting it again

    Nothing Korean!

    There is nothing Korean in the food, the staff, the management, and the attitude. Everything is Malaysian-Chinese! Total disappointment, compared with the original "Hangawi". Will absolutely not go back.
