Kum Gang San
Posted by Anonymous on 12/06/2006
Granted there are SO many korean places to eat on or near 32nd street, I would recommend this place for the quality of their food over all the others. Granted you can find cheaper places to eat, but why try to save a few bucks per entree when the food is WAY BETTER here!?!?! This is, hands down, the freshest meat, vegetables, fish (including sushi) on the k-town strip. Loud as it may get, take it as a sign that the crowds come here for GREAT FOOD! This place is so much better than the place across the street with the waterfall & piano....

The food at this place was pretty good, but the service was very questionable. We received our appetizers after we had already received our main course! The bbq is very expensive, but good. The atmosphere is VERY loud, we had to shout at each other across the table, and forget about socializing with people at the other end of the table! I will definitely try a different place next time as there are so many to choose from!

I don't know what happened to this one, but if you can make it out to Flushing, the Kum Gang San there is a world of difference.

We had a party of 8 on a Thursday night and were seated on the 2nd floor of the restaurant. Waited quite a while before they took our order, and requests to refill our glasses of water were brushed aside. In any case, the panchan portions were extremely small. The japchae noodles provided 3 mouthfuls for each person...and the bulgogo, kalbi, etc hardly filled us up. So sad cos this place used to be quite a treat!!!

The food is pretty good here and they always give you tons of yummy korean side dishes. When I run out, the waiters are always really good about giving you more of what you like. They are open 24 hours which is fabulous, but generally speaking it is a bit overpriced for the food..... that is except their lunch specials. Go there during the weekdays around lunchtime (i think it is until 3PM). It is a awesome deal for good korean food. The atmosphere is nice and the staff is friendly, even when you don't know a word of korean.

Dishes there aren't too great. There are a lot of other great korean restaurants around, but the meat there is great. It's actually the only thing worth ordering. It's a bit pricey and really loud. Don't ever go with a date. Go with loud friends so you'll actually hear them.

I'm puzzled by some of the reviews from people who are Korean. Everytime I've been here, the restaurant is populated by Koreans of all ages. I would think that the Koreans would know better than anyone else how good or poor this restaurant is. With the abundance of other Korean establishments available not only within walking distance of this place, but throughout the city in general, it's not like this is the only deal in town. I enjoy the food tremendously and my only complaint is its high prices. But then again, that's my chief complaint with most of the Korean restaurants in the city. Stick with the lunch deals.
