We love Bann: the bulgogi, kalbi, pajun, Bann Gooksu, etc. Excellent efficient service. But, we made a mistake letting our friend order pork belly. Not for a novice. Even the waiter questioned it, but was too polite to challenge her. Well, she didn't like it and we all tried to get her to try something else. No, she said she... More

Loved the place! The food was absolutely amazing. I went for noodles soup (simply because I had been craving it for a while) and I wish I hadnt. Not that my meal wasn't nice - it was very good, but my partner went for fresh tuna which was to be cooked on the barbecue and the fish was simply amazing.... More

If you like Korean food, Bann is a good place to go pre-theater, or in fact anytime. Less than a block from the subway (E 50th St station) and with plenty of parking garages close by, it's easy to get to. And you'll be rewarded by a warm, friendly atmosphere, professional service and excellent food. Our group of 35 was... More

Had the BBQ for dinner there and I am highly satisfied with my experience. The food was great, service was impeccable, dessert was on point. Most importantly, AWESOME ventilation, can't smell BBQ off my clothes after we finished dinner at all. I highly recommend this place.

Was here for restaurant week with a friend for lunch and it was terrific. Ordered the Jap chae vegetables and Bulgogi BBQ for entree. The 3 course meal for $29 is a great deal because just the bulgogi alone on the menu was $34. Service very good and let us stay and talk for 2 hours. Nice ambience big space... More

Bann serves quality and tasty Korean (and some fusion) food day in and day out. My family and I have been frequenting this restaurant for many years, with excellent meal every time. My only complaint is some of the busboys, who bring food and sort of drop them off without being considerate of the customers or the space on the... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
