Overall I found this place to be mediocre. Food wasn't bad, wasn't good, was ok. Service I found to be poor, many missing items, having to flag people down to just get a beverage. It was reasonably priced. I don't think I'll return.

I think The Mill is a wonderful restaurant! Just walking by, I know it serves authentic Korean food just by looking at some of the people who are inside - real Koreans eating real Korean food. One of my best friends is Korean and I took her to The Millt, and she said it was just like home. The service is very friendly and welcoming, and the prices are amazing. I've been going to The Mill for over 5 years now, and not once have I been disappointed!

I always hear the following about the Mill: it's not real Korean food, it doesn't taste that good, and it's better to go to Koreatown. Well, these aren't really true. If you want higher quality, then it's better to make the trip out to Penn Station (or Queens; or fly out to LA if you've got the time). However, the same could be said of the many Chinese food places that dot this city: go to Chinatown for more authentic-tasting food. I eat at the Mill because it's close, tastes good enough to satisfy my cravings for Korean food, and is much more affordable than most K-town places. By the way, it's best to eat in the restaurant. They never give you the same amount of panchan (the side dishes) and for some dishes (like bibimbap) just don't taste the same when arriving in plastic dishes. The Mill will never taste like my Mom's cooking, but it's not bad in a pinch.

I have reviewed Mill before, but hadn't tried their hot stone pot dishes at that time. Just tried a hot stone pot dish, following the recommendation of another reviewer. He/she is exactly right. The hot stone pot dishes are excellent. Loads of fresh vegetables, with a fried egg and bulgogi. The rice was crispy on the outside, from the contact with the hot stone pot. Wow, really good, hearty and satisfying.

Cramped with barebones if authentic decor, this little joint is perfect for college kids craving Korean food. The food remains authentic and home-style without being too trendy or watered down like other downtown joints, and the price is right. The banchan is a little bit on the weak side in terms of portion size and variety but still tasty and adequate. The hot stone pots and kimchi jigae are delicious, and even their kalbi (usually done in their kitchen) is quite tasty. The Mill hits the spot!

I'm Korean, and I think this place is good. I am severely addicted to their hot stone pot dishes, especially the one with bulgogi. It comes sizzling with veggies, rice, and sauce. I agree that there are better places for certain things and if you want to branch out, but I highly recommend the hot stone pots at Mill. Of the appetizers, the pa-jeon is excellent, and the fried dumplings are abundant and perfectly prepared.

The Dol Sot Bi Bim Bab is my favorite. I love the little appetizers that you are not sure what they are but they're delicious. The place is unique and adorable. Order a Lime Ricky. It is excellent and refreshing!
