Village Voice's Description

This Korean restaurant takes its table-top barbecue seriously, hoping to cash in on the 'cue craze currently gripping Gotham. To that end, the first item on the extensive meat menu at Madangsui is a prime rib-eye steak, but don't get attached to this beauty, because the waitress heartlessly snips it into small pieces as soon as it begins to sizzle. The portions are about twice the size of comparable establishments on 32nd Street, and several cuts are available in either thick or "micro-thin" versions, which is a particular boon to the brisket. Dip the cooked meat in the saucer of sesame oil and salt, then wrap in it lettuce along with a dab of kim chee or the Korean barbecue sauce called kochujang.

    a Korean BBQ place that's on 35th, not 32nd "Korea Town"way better than any of the places on 32nd.

    Bulgogi is fantastic. If its your first time at Korean BBQ, the oranges are to eat. Don't embarrass yourself by wiping your hands with them.

  • Colin G. on 04/22/12

    Far and away the best Korean BBQ I've found in Manhattan.

  • Lauren B. on 03/05/10

    Hostess significantly underestimates the wait.
