We were in NY last week and stayed on 32nd St. Mandoo Bar was the lone Korean place we had info on. We went for lunch & my 15-year-old son loved the mandoo so much that he went back another day for more! The atmosphere is laid back and the service was very attentive. It filled up quickly and we know why!

Ok dumplings, but the sauce was yummy and the free pickles and kimchee also good. I had a really good seafood pancake and partner had a korean dish with rice, meat and vegetables cooked to a fare thee well in a hot pot. the nice waiters showed us how to mix the ingredients for sauces, which are essential. quite good, would go again

I like the vegetable and kimchee mandoo. The vegetables are fresh and they seem to use a good and healthful variety of them. They give kimchee and oshinko as an appetizer, eating in. Tea is gratis, but only on request. I also take back to the office, but it's best to eat there. Make sure they give extra sauce for take-out, they cringe at that and don't give it on first request, but one is not quite enough. A good deal, taste and healthwise, but not a cheapest-eats per se. For the neighborhood, it's clean too and that is not altogether a given in the area.

6 dollars for 4 small, fried dumplings? Not much food. Thought this was supposda be a locals place. Won't go again.

Stopped here on a whim while we were on our way to our old favorite Korean restaurant (of course we didn't end up making it there) and enjoyed a lovely lunch! Dumplings were freshly made...we watched the ladies assembling them in the window as we entered. The bibimbap in the hot stone pot with marinated beef (called Bulgogi Dolsot Bibimbap) was outstanding!! Interior was spartan, but clean and inviting. Would definitely stop again!

I went to Mandoo bar after my favorite korean restaurant was over-booked. First off, this place is has somewhat of a cramped atmosphere. You sit on benches and often times your back rubs up against the person sitting behind you. There is a huge ventilation duct going across the side of the restaurant. In terms of the food, its good but really over-priced. 11 bucks for a bowl of ramen noodles with 2 dumplings in it?? 10 bucks for 8 dumplings? I've had tastier dumplings for much cheaper in Flushing and Chinatown. .
