This place is your basic Korean/Chinese fast-food. Not everything is fried. If you're not familiar with other culture's cuisine, then don't eat there.

Decided to give this place a try and went during lunchtime. I wouldn't go here by reading the other good reviews that people have posted. First off, almost everything on the menu here apart from the noodles seems to be 'Fried'. I don't know, maybe they have two menu's - fried, all else. Ordered the Fried Chicken with spicy garlic sauce on their lunch menu. It's a Gen.Tso's Chicken in orange coloured gravy, with peas, iceberg lettuce and a cherry (garnishing and decoration with whatever could be found on the counter?). Apart from the chilli's added, there was nothing that added any flavour to the chicken. Not to mention that the meat itself was almost inedible - chicken dices with the fat and bone left in. Their kimchi itself consisted of just the baechu variety, and this is a first for me, raw (or was it boiled, I don't know) onions. That's it. Service was pathetic. Asked for a glass of water 4 times, and none of the wait staff could remember it long enough on their way to the kitchen (it's a small place.) Not once did any waiter come by the table to check once they had served the dishes (probably 30 mins.). The only thing I found agreeable about this place was the speed with which they got the check, and I couldn't wait to leave.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in nyc. great food, price service. In this korean-chinese restaurant, the 2 dishes i love here are gan jja jang myun, which is a noodle dish with black bean paste with lots of vegis and meats, and jjam pong, which is a refreshing semi spicy seafood noodle soup. Either is very satisfying and will leave you craving for the next time.

I stumbled across this place only because it was right next door to my hotel. The food was excellent, service was quick and courteous. The only complaint that I had was that if you were not asian it was assumed you wanted the "regular menu". They have two different menus and automatically give you a different appetizer (fried noodles with sweet and sour sauce). The restaurant was mostly locals though, I saw no tourists everytime I went. Overall great restaurant, just make sure you ask for the "other" menu.

I work in the area, so everyday lunch for me & my friends can be quite an adventure, because there's a lot of places you could go to. So far, this ranks as one of the best Korean-Chinese restaurants we've tried (believe me, we've been everywhere). The noodle with black sauce, with onions and potatoes and other stuff would surely stain those pearly whites but its WORTH IT, its so awesome (sorry i forgot the name). The seafood noodle soup rocks as well. Everything else tastes really good too. Huge servings, great price. Just dont go during lunch hour because its packed. And it kinda takes quite awhile when they serve the food, like one time, we waited 45 minutes. But if you arent on a rush, it's well worth the wait. It would also help if you know someone who speaks Korean, because it speeds up the process *winks*

This is fantastic! It's what they call Korean-style Chinese cuisine. It's the best of both worlds, good stir-fries w/o tasting greasy. The black bean sauce noodle's a must, kids in Korea eat it like it's a burger, that's how popular it is. And for me, it's very nostalgic!

Just so you folks know, the "chinese" food served here isn't what one normally finds in a regular chinese restaurant but is actually Korean style Chinese. As such places go, it's quite decent - and is a bit cheaper than Kum Ryong on 32nd st. Not a bad choice on a cold day, but I'd rather have Han Bat instead ....
