This place is great for the east side. It's a good place for lunch. I enjoyed the bibimbop as well as the other little dishes you get with the meal.

Very good food, not too spicy unless you ask for it. I have ordered from hear several times and have found the food to be very satisfactory. I have eaten in better Korean restaurants but the food here is excellent and it is the best in our area.

One of the few Korean restaurants in the 50's, it doesn't compare to the Korean restaurants in the 30's but if you are stuck at work and want Korean, then it'll do.

I would not recommend the bulgogi here since quality is definitely lacking. I like the Busot Nokum but it's really pricey for just mushrooms even if there is portabella's in there. I love the duk bogki (spicy rice cake with noodles). The bibimbop is fine.

I haven't tried the kalbi recently and I can't remember if I liked it. Even the kimchi is not as good as the Korean places in the 30's.

Strolled in on a Thurs night with a friend in the mood for great Korean bbq. The staff that did the bbq for us had no clue what to do. She put the meat/shrimp on when the bbq wasn't hot enough so it just lay there limp, and we did not hear the familiar sizzle. Oh- and also, it's expensive for what you get. The big problem here is that they do not use charcoal for their bbq so you do not get the smoky flavor. Avoid this place if bbq is your thing- head over to K-town and visit Won JO instead. Great food, and better prices. More experienced staff too!

Pros: centrally located near midtown east.

Cons: horrible bbq- and inexperienced waitstaff.

Staff was attentive and food was good. The place was so packed for lunch we were whisked away to the back part of the restaurant, which I assumed is usually for private parties. Like all Korean restaurants, there were free appetizers. I ordered the Park Avenue combo, for $18, you get soup, salad, bulgogi and dosot bip bim bop. It's a bit expensive but this being mid-town Manhattan, I guess that's to be expected.

Best Korean food above 32nd Street. The prices are good, and the food is very authentic. Friendly staff, and beautiful atmosphere. THEIR PIANO GUY ROCKS. BEST PIANO PLAYING I HAVE HEARD SINCE MY GRANDMOTHER USED TO PLAY. They also have the BEST pickled black beans in the world...but they dont have it all the time. Also the lotus root is very good too!

The food is tasty. I had the Spicy Bar-bque Pork and it is very Delicious. Sung had the Soup with some spicy shredded beef and he gave it a 8 out of 10. Yubin had the same as I and he also enjoyed his meal. Overall the food is very good but the other reviews are right you need to go to K-Town to get better pricing. But if you work around the hood then this is a good quick fix if you are in the mood for Korean Food.

I usually go to K town and for Korean food and I eat it often enough to know good Korean food from bad. I tried KoreaPalace because it is close to work but the food was just horrible. Their tofu stew was so salty and thick, I only ate a quarter of it and there was like 3 little cubes of tofu. Their bibimbab had mostly lettuce and hardly any meat and for 14 bucks I don't feel I got my money's worth. Their little side dishes were skimpy too.

Cons: bad food, not authentic Korean, not enough banchan

I got the hot spicy soup (YookHweJang) and it tasted great. Almost as good as mom's. My colleague got the Bulgoki Box, which had a lot of neat items to eat, next to the beef. Personally, I think the beef always tastes better off the grill, but if you don't want your clothes to stink, the Box is the way to go. The side dishes (panchan) were pretty good and I think this place is priced pretty reasonably for midtown. This was my second time there, so I have no complaints.

Pros: convenient location, reasonable prices, good food

The food is good, the atmosphere is soothing (piano bar and soft lighting at nite), and it's in midtown! Huzzah! Recommend the yookgehjang (spicy red soup), the bulgogi (bbq boneless beef), and the bibimbap (rice and veggies).

Pros: cute little sides, relaxing, good lunch deals

Cons: a little pricy

This is one of my favorite spots for lunch in the area. Nothing beats the Clay Pot Bibimbop -- fried rice served sizzling in a hot clay pot that "caramelizes" as you eat it. Hard to believe the negative reviews. The one minor complaint would be the generic dining room, but the staff is always friendly and the food is terrific.

I wish I could say less is more. I love korean barbecue meats -- especially kalbi. But, over the years I have noticed that the portions gets smaller and smaller while the prices have increased a fair amount. The barbecue meats that we ordered at Korea Palace and side dishes were ok. We did not get any soup though, and you had to ask for the rice. The service was average, and it was a average experience.

Service was horrendous the night we went for dinner. Large group that ate over $450 received very little "service." Meat dishes are overpriced (go to K-town) and waiters have tendency to take away your dish before you are done (probably so that you order more). Didn't bring out the little free side dishes until a Korean person came late and asked for it (this is RIDICULOUS at a Korean restaurant). Almost felt embarrassed to take my business clients there. Not worth the bad service at extra high costs. Go to Korea town (32nd St btwn 5th and B'dway); much better food, service, and prices!!!!!!!
