Omg I went there with some friends after seeing a movie and I was blown away at the fact that I was able to have my first Korean food experience be a fabulous one! Hot foods were delicious and the premade kimbop are a definite plus. Made me wish I had a larger stomache to try it all! Only thing bad it that it's a small place so seating's limited but it's always busy there do the food is constantly stocked and fresh <3 Long lines at the register move fast so it's worth the wait. Highly recommended!

I'm completely in love with the luncheon buffet. First up in the line, a wonderful [select]ion of cold vegetables, buckwheat noodles, spicy noodles, kimchi of course healthy!! And then onward to the thermal and often, spicy hot stuff, where I can indulge in a few bits of luscious deep fried pork, stuffed cabbage, warm clear noodles, spicy skewered chicken just a few of my favorites. A feast! And cheaper than the non-Asian buffets around Greeley and Herald squares.

This was my first time having korean food that wasn't home cooked by one of my friends' moms. I must say woorijip won me over with the quality and value of their food. Since this is more of a grab and go lunch place, I wasn't looking for atmosphere and I could care less. I got a large portion of kim-bap for only $3.50. It was very fresh and that alone kept me full. My friend ordered the prepared bulgogi and kimchi friend rice...the bulgogi was a little dry but the rice just knocked it out of the ball park. I went in very depressed and came out ecstatic!

Korean food is expensive in the city but at Woorijip, prices are affordable and the quality is great. The buffet is only $6.50 a pound and there are loads of options for snack/lunch/dinner and is open 24/7! Try the rice cakes with fish cakes for only $3.50!

Well now. I'm so damned happy to have come across this little gem, and had decided upon walking in that it would be a regular lunch spot (despite the fact that I neither live nor go to school, nor work anywhere near it). I wanted to try everything offered, from the hot food to the cold lunchboxes, to the noodle bar and buffet table, to the desserts. Somehow I decided (confident that I'd return again soon) on pumpkin porridge and some rice to go with it. I was sated, and for barely any money, and my tastebuds were happy; I hadn't had something that satisfying for my cravings in a long time. Next visit, I'll have to get one of their sweet rice desserts, as well as selections from the hot food bar. Again, excellent, excellent, excellent, and who cares if its small?

This place is the best food and especially for the value. It is just like my mom's home cooking and sometimes better (but don't tell my mom). There hasn't been not oe thing I have ordered that I did not like. And the prices are the best in all of New York City. Also, the banchan (the little dishes you get when you sit down) are always the best and in season. Although you might get pushed around and rushed out because they have so many patrons, it is just like a typical great place in Korea. There is an understanding that you make room for all the people waiting in line. The line is usually out the door but goes fast and is definitely worth waiting about 15 minutes at most. They even take your order when you are in line sometimes so that they can get you your food soon after you are seated. I don't know what I would do without Kunjip; they are a lifesaver to my eating needs!
