Absolutely the worst place ever – O. M. G. I went to dinner here with my family for the first time today. It was an episode out of Kitchen Nightmares. First, we had to beg to get water. We ordered our food, and it took 30 minutes for one dish to come out. 10 minutes later, the second dish came out. 10 minutes after that, the third dish came out. It was a stew, and it was cold. I asked for it to be reheated, and the waiter said of course and never came back to get it. Meanwhile the other tables were having the same problems. People were beginning to yell at the waiters about the slow service. At least 3 tables left because they had waited 40 minutes and had not gotten any food. The waiters finally came up with food but it turned out to be for one of the tables that had left--but the other tables asked the waiters if they could have the food, since their own food was not coming out. Basically they were scavenging out of hunger. One waiter kept on going around, not serving food or water or doing anything useful, but occasionally apologizing and saying, "It's not my fault". We finally had enough and told the waiter to take off the cold stew and the fourth dish that had never come out even after one hour, and left. So, I would definitely not recommend this place to anyone. Unless you don't want to eat.
great venue – greetted by a wonderful host, served by an very attentive server and food was prepared by an amazing chef. this was a total find enroute to theater...it will def be part of my restaurant picks moving forward..check it out!
Korean Food Rules, Chom Chom especially – i love korean food. rice and bbq is the best and now im totally hooked on chom chom and will definitely be going back for more. you will be happy if you go. i promise.
Best Korean in NYC – Tried this place out last Saturday and will definitely be back. I love Korean and am glad to find a great place in the heart of midtown. This place is now a go to for me. LOVE them.
Great Food – the food was amazing, but it sounds like maybe i just ordered the right things? i wasn't sure where to start because this isn't your typical Korean Food restaurant, but the waitress was really nice and gave me some good recommendations. We started with the spicy shrimp and scallion pancakes which were delicious and beautifully presented. for entrees we had the kalbi gim that MELTS in your mouth. to dieee for!!! and the tofu stew, which was perfect, very flavorful and not overly spicy. everything was amazing but i honestly think the kalbi gim was the best thing i have ever had, and i do a LOT of eating haha. i'm salivating just thinking about it..
all in all excellent food, and 10 thumbs up if i had it for the service. dont forget to get the kalbi gim :)
our FAVORITE new spot in the city – I stopped into Chom Chom last night and could not be happier that I did. Chom Chom is the best place to try new dishes and enjoy an evening in a classic setting. The bar was crowded and the tables were full of people trying some of the best dishes in nyc.
We are actually going to throw a birthday party in their upstairs private space in the near future. The decor inside Chom Chom is not to be missed.... great place~
Citysearch Editorial Profile – This 5,000-square-foot behemoth of a midtown restaurant offers authentic Korean cuisine within a refined setting.
Best maki in town! – If you are in the mood for some delicious and creative rolls, Sushi Twist is the answer to your prayers. The Jazz Roll and Honey Roll were fresh and fanstastic. BUT the Yellowtail Ceviche almost stole the show. The restaurant also has a great sake list, as well as an impressive cocktail menu. We are definitely going back to try the hot entrees, and judging by what we experienced, we know we won't be disappointed.
Service and atmosphere were also excellent. But the food was the highlight of our night. GO THERE!
Great Experience. – I tried the Salmon Ceviche... and I fell in love. Hands down, the best ceviche i've had, they add jalepenos, peppers, and fresh oranges, in the zesty spicy soy sauce type sauce, i cant stay away.
Sushi & Fun – Loved the atmosphere and the service was fantastic. My glass of water was always filled unnoticed. Price is comparable to most sushi restaurants in the city but the quality is definitely on the high-end. I recommend the seaweed salad, tuna ceviche, and the amazing Madison roll.
