Fantastic, Healthy Korean ""Peasant"" Food 3/3/2007

This has long been my favorite Korean restaurant in the city. Really hearty, wonderful ""peasant"" food which we all know is more healthy for you. If you want super fresh homemade tofu, this is the place to go. You do not come here for BBQ; if you want that experience, go to a Korean restaurant where this is their specialty. The BBQ is ok, but it is grilled in the kitchen and you don't get the full wonderful experience you would get at a true BBQ place. The real gourmand will know that Cho Dang Gol is a place where you order the tofu stews and dishes. Pros: Fantastic food, great tofu, authentic atmosphere Cons: Prices are a bit high, but normal for such restaurants in Manhattan. And the food is worth it! Some might feel rushed if you linger too long, but if it's not busy, not a concern. more

Excellent Food, Excellent service! 10/4/2005

Although I heard that Cho Dang Gol was very delcious from many people, I was a little bit skeptical. But...after i ate the food, especially the soon doo boo chigae, i believe it. The food is excelellent. I would definitely go back. The waitstaff was also very helpful and friendly. Pros: excellent food, excellent service, comfortable atmospher Cons: no breakfast, crowded more

Decent tofu and kongbiji 9/2/2005

my kind of Korean comfort food. This is one of my favorite Korean places. Love the tofu and kongbiji here. I am pretty surprised that Kun Jib restaurant is not in the city search list - which is my other favorite and where all the Koreans go to nowadays. I usally come to Chodanggol when Kunjip gets too crowded for comfort. This is one restaurant I can relax and enjoy the meal. love the old Korean instruments setting Pros: good food, ambience Cons: slow service more

Above average Korean 7/26/2005

I ate there several times. The kimchi is excellent. The menu is very limited for a single diner as most of the menu is dedicated to dishes for two. The service was attentive and the prices were average. Pros: kimchi, service Cons: limited menu more

There is much better out there 8/23/2004

went to this place, instead of the usual standby around the corner, based on review I read here which touted the ""homemade tofu"" that came with the abundant comlpimentary appetizers. We wree told they were ""out of tofu tonight, unless you pay for it"" and were served deep fried zucchini and onions instead. We then ordered the sirloin BBQ and chicken BBQ. The beef was acceptable, but the chicken was disgusting -- fatty, grizzle dark meat. It was not edible. The came by 1/2 hour later and when she saw that the chicken was not touched, she simply asked ""Are you done with this?"" and took it away. No inquiry as to why it was not eaten - she probably knew why. Some concise advice - don't go here. There are many other place that are far superior, including 36 Bar & BBQ, Kang Suh or Yakiniku JuJu. more

Hand made tofu 3/11/2004

This resturant's specialty is the hand made tofu. I would say that this place is preferred from the ones in 34th street because they offer more and better side dishes(ban chan) than other k-town resturants. Their pancakes are really good but their main dishes are average. Pros: good side dishes more

All yummy in the tummy! 3/28/2003

I just really love their bulgogi and bibimbop (forgive me for spelling if it's wrong). The tofu dishes and soups are a must-try as well. I like the fact that I don't come out of the restaurant smelling like Korean BBQ. I also enjoy their after-dinner ginger-lemon tea concoction that goes down really smooth and satisfying. Pros: No pungent BBQ smell, food, after-dinner tea more

Better then their neighbor 11/27/2002

I been to Han Bat next door a couple times before trying this place and personally, it's better. The atmosphere is more appealing and the food is very good and quite plentiful. No need to order an appetizer, the wait staff bring the goods right to your table after ordering. Great kim chi and other Korean munchies. The menu consists of dishes mostly made from to-fu. Don't be fooled by the high priced appetizers, they're huge! Tremenndous, filling Korean pancakes. I highly recommend this place. Pros: great food, inexpensive, clenly more
