“Sip your soju slowly and enjoy a quality meal.”
“There isnt an extensive sushi menu, but what I had was filling and tasty, it was an average spicy tuna and hamachi roll.”
“But the service was great and very friendly.”
“Seems like all the Korean BBQ around here is really expensive unless you hit Kum Gang San for the weekday lunch special.”
“think wonjo might be a little more flavorful with the burning wood chips (kang suh uses gas grills), but wonjo is dreadfully slow at times.”
The day may have 24 hours, but there's never enough time to eat Korean food. This spot is perfect late at night, after karaoke, when you're starving and need to fulfill the barbecue urge. Simply ornamented, with consistently decent food, this restaurant was made for drunk happy groups who need their fill.
Highly Recommended for good reason!. Korean home cooking 24/7 at it's best. If you've been out partying and have a yen for quality Korean food at 3:00am, there's a table waiting for you at Kang Suh Restaurant. The food is just as good at 2:00pm in the afternoon. It's not cheap, but it is very good and not exceptionally expensive. The staff is friendly and food or hot coals are delievered to your table quickly. I brought my mother here once for Mother's Day. I've come a few times on dates and with friends. Their Dak Bul Gui is spicy and tasty, so to is their Sizzling Rice and Seafood. Come hungry but be careful not to order too large an appetizer because it would be a shame to waste their scallion pancakes because you've gotten too full prematurely. Sip your soju slowly and enjoy a quality meal. Table barbeque is only available when 2 or more in your party order it.
Best Korean food rated by koreans. They have the best and most authentic korean food PERIOD. The decor is normal but last time I checked, if you really appreciate food, you come for the food, not the decor, ambiance, foo and la la. Real koreans don't care about the 'environ' as long as the food is exceptional. Other Korean places try to make up for it with decor, catering to the americans, fusioning it up, etc, but if you want Korea, come here. Become a regular, become a part of the family.
Best so far in Koreatown. I've tried many of them several times each - Kum Gang San, Han Bat, Woo Chon, Woo Lae Oak, etc. etc. and tried Kang Suh for the first time last night. Kang Suh is by far the best BBQ and the pan chan are varied and fresh. It may be slightly more expensive than other K-town restaurants, but for the quality, this is my new favorite Korean place! The service is also very friendly, helpful and attentive. Joomeluk and bulgogi were excellent and the standard jap chae and mandoo were well above average!
A++ Korean Food. I came here with my boyfriend for new years eve dinner and was very skeptic of this place at first because it didn't seem to be very friendly. But the service was great and very friendly. The Korean food especially the BBQ was well worth it but I suggest sticking to the beef and pork. The chicken seems kind of bland to my taste buds. The staff was very helpful in the BBQ-ing process if this is your first time. Parking is also available in the parking lot right next door to the restaurant so don't be afraid to drive there. If you have a few extra dollars to spend why not spend it here?
Highly Recommended. We went to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and needed a place to eat. We checked on Citysearch and found this restaurant. There were 13 of us, including 4 children under the age of 4. They put us in a private room. The service was fast, they were friendly and the food was delicious. If you come to NY and want Korean food, this is the place!
One of the best restaurants in K town. The food at Kang Suh is good, go! I never complain of the food there unless to say I wish I could eat more. My group of 3 ordered a seafood soup, a beef dish, a shrimp dish, and wine. They were all very tasty and good sized portions. Although the price may be a couple of dollars more than the other restaurants in K town, I think this is one of the better ones and worth the little extra money. Also the BBQ bulgogi and kalbi are very good!
Really Good Korean Food. I have eaten at many Korean resturants in NY. This one has the best food. Generous portions, fair prices. The fried hot peppers are amazing (forgot the Korean name for this dish). So far, everything I've ordered has been excellent.
Best Korean restaurant in K Town. I've been coming to this restaurant since '97. I'm Korean and I am picky when it comes to Korean food. I have tried other restaurants in K town (Korea Town) in Manhattan, but I love Kang Suh, so I can say that at least I have tried other places and I can compare. I always bring non-Korean friends here who love the food and service. For large groups they have private rooms which is great. Pricewise, it's not cheap but it's not too expensive either if you consider all the food that you get. And because I have been such a long time customer, they give me extra dishes as courtesy.
Really Satisfying. This is my favorite Korean spot. I've been coming here for years and I have never been disappointed. Plus having a parking garage right there helps. Open 24 hours is also a plus. If you love Korean food or want to try it, check out Kang Suh.
meat!!!. I'm usually too apathetic to fill these forms out. Even if I ABHOR a place, I'm not moved to leave an opinion. However, I am SHOCKED that I will only be the 2nd person to leave a review of Kang Suh!!! I've known about this place since I moved here my back in the 1900s ('97). Although it has that non-intimate diner feel to it, that's almost part of its appeal. I'm not Korean, (my best friend is), and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the food here!!!! You can't go wrong with the barbecue items, the absolute best being the Joomeluk (Choomaluk, spelled many ways) and my best friend loves the soups and Bi Bim Bap. That they even offer Joomeluk shows that they take the bbq part of their menu seriously. It's pricey, yes. It's NYC! But for such high-quality meat, it's well worth the trip and expense.
