1. I'm a korean. I know authentic korean food and what they serve WERE NOT korean food. The spicy tofu soup that I ordered was flavorless and was not spicy at all. My friend ordered a bibimbap, it was supposely the best, but it was bland and flavorless. Their hot sauce was not hot at all, it was sweet and sour. 2. Service was slow and horrible. We gave them 10% tips and as we walked out, THEY DEMANDED FOR MORE TIPS. So, we doubled and gave the tips to 20% for crappyass food. 3. The bathrooms were smelly and dirty. The atmosphere felt cheap. 4. We ordered from a "lunch special" but when we got our check, prices were $2 more than the prices on the lunch special. The waiter did say anything about that as we ordered. Apparently, since it was the a "holiday" - memorial day, they had to raise the prices. I mean, I would have understand if they told us beforehand, BUT THEY DIDNT AND JUST RAISED THE PRICES ON THE CHECK WITHOUT TELLING US.

I usually order lunch or dinner to go and it is great, they have my food hot and ready to pick up and never ask for a tip. I usually order one of the hot soups, I think if you eat in, you might have a larger portion though.

i have been to this restaurant many times. They have good food. Slow Service with water and some other things i asked for. Due to the slow service i received i paid 10% tip. as i was leaving i was stopped by the waitress and the manager which they started getting loud about the tip i left them. My husband got so upset and took the whole tip away.

Although I've found the best K food in Queens, this never fails to satisfy my cravings. The BBQ is the draw, and rightfully so. It's delicious and super reasonably priced. The pancakes (both veg and fish) are awesome, as are the rice cakes. I'm not enamored of their bibimbap, however, or the kimchi; but that being said, it's still an exceptional place with a great price. See you there!

The place that I "always went to" for Korean BBQ closed, so I had to pick another. I chose NY Kom based on the reviews and I was glad I did. The BBQ tables are upstairs with a nice view of the street. The beef dumplings were delicious (we had some steamed and some fried). The BBQ was great. We had the marinated pork belly, sirloin tips and short ribs. The pork was the best of the three, but all good. I will definitely go back.

We went there for dinner. The food and service were very good and the price is 10% cheaper than the restaurants nearby. We will go there again.

I'm korean, and I grew up eating solely korean food at home. I also lived in koreatown in los angeles, so I know my korean food. Of all the korean restaurants on 32nd street, this is by far the best. My dad told me that i should try NY Gom Tang Soot Bul Kal Bi b/c he used to dine there back in 1982, and he thought it was great. A lot has changed since then, but i still think they have the best korean food on 32nd. My favorites are their Pajun's (pancake), Kori Gom Tang (oxtail soup), and Jun Buk Jook (abalone porridge).
