This isn't the best Korean food you'll have. For that, you need to go to Flushing or Fort Lee. But for those who live is this neighborhood (Morningside Heights), Mill is a fantastic alternative to the lackluster takeout options. I would bypass the meat for the more hearty dishes, like the stews and soups. The noodle dishes are also very good. I don't have to go to 32nd street anymore to feed my jajang myun cravings!

i love this place. i almost always get dolsot bibimbap, a stone pot rice dish that sizzles with green squash, spinach, two kinds of bean sprouts, tofu, and carrots (i get no egg). they bring lots of small dishes to start with, the food comes out quickly, and the staff is friendly and helpful. the restaurant itself is cute- nothing super fancy, but you can eat outside, or in a window. i live pretty far away, but am willing to trek to this place pretty often.

This is not good Korean food. Don't get the pancakes. Beef was chewy. If you have to try this place then go for the cod fish casserole. Stick to the casserole or noodle dishes.

Easily my favorite restaurant in the Columbia area. Mill is cozy, small, and unbelievably well-decorated. Some of staff speaks rable English, but to be honest, this just makes the place feel more authentic. All the waiters are extremely nice ( and the free appetizers are always surprising and delicious. Food comes unbelievably fast, and is always hot and tasty and filling. This restaurant is a hidden gem, I don't think people know how great it is until they've actually gone there. I recommend starving for a day and going for a big dinneryou will NOT be disappointed.

This place isn't fancy but it's not the dive I expected based on the other reviews it's actually sort of cozy, and if you look up from your table, you'll see that they've even put some effort into decorating overhead with plants and lanterns and tapestries. The seating is tight, the tables don't all match, but it feels nice. And frankly, even if it didn't, I'd still go back for the kim chi stew. It's flavorful and satisfying, and surprisingly filling since it looks so brothy when it arrives. Bi bim bop was underwhelming, as were the scallion pancakes. Fried veggie dumplings come piping hot and golden crispy. And don't skip the little dishes of kim chi delights that come at the start of the meal. The assortment might change from one visit to the next , but they're always good. If some of you don't like the setting or think the food isn't so great, that's fine by me. Just makes it easier for us to get a table next time we want kim chi stew.

Great cozy restaurant in the Columbia area. There are no good Korean restaurants on the Upper Westside, so this will definitely do. The atmosphere, if you don't look too closely, is okay. It's a college type of restaurant, however, and so everything is hot and fast. And quite delicious for a quick fix. Koreatown is definitely better, but it's also far on a cold winter day. If you have a car, you might be better off to drive over the George Washington Bridge to Palisades Park for great Korean food and free parking.

Although the food at Mill is pretty standard, it does satiate my hunger in a way that no other restaurant in the Columbia area can compete with. I love the strong flavor of their sundubu on a cold day, the mild and comforting taste of their soups when I'm sick, and the exciting little dishes I get with each meal, whether I like them or not. The kim chee is yummy (I like the sourness of the vinegar), and sometimes, when I'm lucky, they'll give me these little potatoes that have been cooked with shoyu, sesame oil, and chili--those are great. They have great turnover at this restaurant, so I've never encountered anything that tasted or smelled rotten, also sometimes the limp bean sprouts they give you with your meal aren't so fresh. If you're craving something salty and flavorful, this may be the place to go. I go everyday for lunch or sometimes dinner and I always leave feeling like I had a great meal. Plus, there's nothing else like it around Columbia and they have a tendency to undercharge. Definitely worth it.
