Although I'm not Korean, I've come to crave the food here as if it reminded me of grandma's! Nothing beats a hot stone pot on a cold winter evening (pretty delish in summer too), the scallion pancakes are juicy, and the appetizers are always good (the pickled cucumber and cold omelette bits are my favorite). The small dining room is always packed but somehow never feels cramped, and the waiters are harried but very friendly. Love the little packs of Chicklets with the check, very cute!

I've been eating at The Mill for close to 8 years. Having grown up eating my mom's Korean cooking, eating at specialty Korean restaurants in Korea, L.A., Jersey and NYC, I must say that I've had my share of amazing Korean food. Where does The Mill fit into this picture? It's a good restaurant that does the trick when I'm craving Korean food. Of course I could go to 32nd St., Queens, or Jersey but on a cold winter's night when the last thing I want to do is get on the subway, The Mill is just a skip or a phone call away. The menu has all the basic Korean dishes including great stone bowl bibimbaps, good scallion/seafood pancakes, dumplings, and my favorite stews including the soft tofu casseroles. If you like your food to taste "more authentic" ask if they will cook it using extra spices for the spicy dishes. Both the dining in and delivery service is speedy and they are always generous with their side dishes. So if you're in the mood for Korean and want to dine in the UWS/Morningside Heights area, look around because you don't have much choice. This is not the best situation but you have to give The Mill credit for satisfying Korean food cravings in the neighborhood. There's my dellivery order! I told you they were speedy.

I have known the Mill for many years. I have known people who work there. I know the owners somewhat as well. i would still say that the food is mediocre at best. The only reason a Korean would go eat there is because the UWS is sorely lacking in Korean cuisine. My mother once ordered the Mul Neng Myun and she said that it tasted like they had sweetened it with Sweet & Low. Pretty gross. I can't say I've ever had anything there that was "pretty good", but it's not intolerable either

Since this restaurant is pretty assimilated (it's called the Mill, for heaven's sake) you have to seek out the more interesting and authentic items. For example, instead of getting the plain bibim bap, try the pork and kimchi version which is great. They're clearly trying to accommodate a range of tastes, from white-bread college student to culinary sophisticates, so it's up to the individual diner to figure out what will be to her taste. Just read the menu carefully and you're sure to find something good. It will probably not be one of the cheaper items.

Great, cheap Korean food with excellent service. I've had courteous, efficient service every time (10) I've been here. If you're looking for haute Korean cuisine, I'm sure there are places that will enjoy taking your $$$, but that's simply never what I'm looking for. This place is fantastic.

Ive never actually eaten here but the delivery comes pretty quickly and they let you use credit card without a minimum $ amount. I like the seafood chabchae.. being that this is the only korean place in the area its pretty good

I'm not sure that seeing real Koreans eating real Korean food is an accurate measure of the quality at The Mill. The food is mediocre by any standard and the service is nothing to get excited about. The only reason many of us Koreans do go to the Mill is because poor Korean food is still better than no Korean food and The Mill is the only Korean restaurant on campus. One good thing, though, is that The Mill delivers, and while it's not very good quality when you go and eat there, it's quite good for delivery. They give you a lot of free side dishes and there is no minimum order.
