Best Korean food in Manhattan. – My Korean born wife and I have eaten here more than 15 times over the last 5 years. We absolutely LOVE DO Hwa.
The Kalbi and Bulgogi BBQ are simply the BEST I (and my wife) have ever had, anywhere in nYc. The cuts of beef are exceptionally tender and flavorful (due to an extra long marinade we believe) and the portions are quite generous.
The Banchan are always fresh, varied and creative and all are delicious.
The soup you receive as a side was very fresh and delicious. My wife remarked it was the most authentic Korean soup she has ever had in the United States. Very very close to what her grandmother used to make back in Korea (that should tell you something).
The service is always very good; attentive without fawning over you.
As you can imagine, I have eaten in an ungodly amount of "Korean" restaurants in nYc, and probably sampled just about every kind of Korean food available outside of the ROK, and DO Hwa is simply the best I have ever had.
DO Hwa isn't the cheapest, but like most things in life you get what you pay for.
Heaven – I adore DoHwa. The restaurant is gorgeous, the staff are terrific and friendly, best of all the food is absolutely the best. I have been all through Ktown, and have to say, the restaurants there pale in comparison to this gem on Carmine Street. It is very comfortable inside, the decor is so tranquil. The deji bulgogi is my favorite-I am addicted to it. And the mandu gui (dumplings) are the best! They have a delightful ginger iced tea, and their desserts are all terrific. I wish I could eat here everyday. My favorite restaurant in the city! Kudos to you all at DoHwa-keep up the excellent work. I love you!
Fun place.... – Haven't been to DoHwa for awhile so popped in last week. Glad to see this place hasn't lost it's edge.
Tried some of their new dishes (tuna tartar and squid bibimbop) yummy!
Will definitely be returning!
Very Disappointing – I was upset after leaving this restaurant. When we arrived, the place was completely empty and yet it took 10-15 minutes for the waitress to take our drinks order (she gave us a song and dance about how she had a hard night or something), and later the waiter pushed my friend and I out even though half the tables were still empty (maybe the end of his shift? That's fine--it's okay to tell me that, but not to insult me and give me some BS reason to leave).
I've been to MANY Korean restaurants in NYC from inexpensive to upscale. Don't go here. Go to one of the restaurants on the East 30s, where you will get good service and food that's as good or better..
THE BEST EXPERIENCE--DON'T MISS OUT ON THIS PLACE – We had never had Korean food before and it was AMAZING it was the best dining experience in about 10 years. The food was exceptional and the staff was so attentive. Brian the manager was so personable coming over to the table to even recommend a lounge in the area. This is a place to go for a dining experience like no other. ENJOY--we can't wait to return. Thanks Brian and Staff
my favorite place! – this is hands down my favorite restaurant! i go just about once a week to get my fix. the food is always fresh and delicious. they just changed over to their summer menu and i am so happy with the seasonal items they have added. the staff is amazing, very friendly and genuine. the drinks are the bombs. i love sitting at the bar here. the bartenders are great and there is always room enough to hang with friends or even for a date. and i almost forgot, i am always impressed by the music they play here. i always leave here better and happier!
Outstanding – I've been wanting to try this place since I moved in to the neighborhood and it did not disappoint me. I went with a friend and we sat at a BBQ table. Our server was very informative and sweet. She explained everything to us as to ordering since this was our first time there. The food was great. It is on the spicy side but there were options for those who cannot take the "heat" like my friend. I'm looking forward to going back again
Bad experince! – This place is not a place that you can hang out with your boyfriend or girlfriend.First of all it is too noisy and the food is something that you can find in a 2 class restaurant.
I LOVE this place – I am a born and Raised Korean American. My mom fed us Korean food all of our lives and we went to the most popular Korean restaurants in Flushing for Sunday dinner with family and what not. I have NEVER EVER experienced Korean food the way this place has served it.
They bring in such a modern,cool, chic ambiance without it feeling too rustic or too cold. AND THE FOOD! oh my jebus! the FOOD! I ate sushi bibimbap. SO FRESH! SO BOLD! SO DELICIOUS in flavors! They are good at giving Korean food a modern twist without compensating the Koreaness of the dish. The prices are great too for the quality they give you.
Cool place to hangout with your friends cause they got a nice bar in the side. Nice romantic place to go with your hubby or boyfriend/girlfriend and I would absolutely bring my parents or relatives here. LOVE IT
Great Korean Food, without the BBQ Smell. – Do Hwa?s decor is modern-ish with 3 main colors present: black, white and red. The staff is attentive and friendly. The food was yummy... from the panjan to the bibimbap to the soups... all fresh and quite tasty. One of my dining mates is a friend who recently moved to NY from Korea and he gave it the thumbs up... which says a lot. All in all, yummy food, good service and average pricing (comparable to K-Town). I should point out, though, one difference between Do Hwa and most Korean restaurants? there is no barbequing at the table. While some may enjoy the traditional way of bbq-ing at the table... it does save you on dry cleaning bills because, without fail, when you leave a Korean restaurant, the bbq?s (whether from your table or someone else?s) aroma stays with you.
