A local friend took me here last fall and it was love at first bite. All the dumplings I had rocked, but the vegetarian dumplings were exceptional. Very fresh ingredients and lots of vegetables. The bibimbap is great too. I wound up taking a number...More

Excellent dumplings, bibimbap and other Korean dishes in a very casual setting - one small, clean step up from a hole-in-the-wall. Service was fast and pleasant, but not rushed. Excellent option for lunch or a quick dinner after too many big, expensive NY meals.

We've been passing it for years when we stay at the NYMA hotel. Today we were in the mood for a snack before an early dinner. The #13--goon mandoo dumplings--hit the spot. A tad greasy, but very tasty.

No visit to NYC would be complete without a visit to Madoo Bar. Have been there many times and always found the quality of their food consistently good. Always order the fried tofu and a variety of dumplings - all delicious. Their bibambop is always...More

Had very good pork and vegetable fried dumplings. Tasty and some of the best I've had in New York. Small booths so don't go with more than 4 people as we had to sit in seperate booths. The bibimbob beef was tasty also.

Had an early dinner here before our flight back. Around 16:30 the place was half full. Service was quick and the dumplings were great, filled nicely, tasty and well prepared. The metal chopsticks took a little getting used to but probably ecologically more friendly than...More
