This restaurant has unusual style Korean dishes. But the taste was good. Our table was attached to the other customers' table. So felt weird. This is a big restaurant and they should provide some private space for customers.

Bann is a very good Korean restaurant on west 50th with a very large selection of Korean barbeque, noodle and rice dishes. They also feature very good Korean beer. Very good service

The meals were more New York than Korea. Bim bim bop was adequate but not special. Service was perfunctory.

We enjoyed a pre-theater dinner at Bann and it was excellent. WE enjoyed the grilled filet, a fried rice dish and pork bellies. The service was very good with helpful directions regarding all the sauces and cooking opportunities.
