We stopped by for lunch. Amongst so many Korean restaurants to choose from, we opted for reasonable lunch options boxes here. The service was very nice, the side dishes and the boxes were yummy. There are many things that my kids could eat: beef bulgogi (Korean marinade), Japchae ( clear sweet potato noodles stir fry), plain rice. My kids loved... More

I'll start by saying that their food is fine. The little appetizers and soups are yummy and their BBQ meats delicious but some of their dishes are underseasoned, like the bimbimbap, fried rice and teriyaki chicken or maybe that's just how Korean food is. Prices are good but the service is average. Our group of 12 sat at two different... More

As expected koreatown has alot of good bbq restaurants. Competition is good. We tried this place for dinner and we came away full and satisfied. Had the kimchi stew along with the bulgogi and bacon bbq. Went there early on Sunday so it wasn't that busy. We were promptly served and the service was good. Will go back.

We chose Shilla, because it wasn't so crowded and price was competitive. Side dishes were OK, all the food were salty even the spicy options. The whole place needs some renovation.

I ate here with a friend and really enjoyed the food. The restaurant is on two floors and pretty large but was quite empty this evening. We were seated upstairs, and the service was very good and the waiters were attentive. The food was fresh and delicious. I am not Korean but I always look forward to Korean side dishes.... More

Very fresh ingredients. Lots of choices. Pleasant and efficient waiter who accommodated my request for no hot spice without a lecture. Fantastic value. Best Korean food outside of Seoul. As I was outside studying the menu, a local Korean woman passing by gave a strong, unsolicited endorsement. She said it was the best Korean food in NYC. I'm glad I... More

Busy and popular this K-Town staple has been here for a long time. Consistent and reliable with main courses for around $10. Staff are helpful and efficient. The barley tea is perfect with lunch. Been here several times and always great

Although we found everything to be delicious, what I wanted to write about was the graciousness of the staff. We let our waiter know we were first timers to Korean BBQ and a little confused on what to order. He smiled and jumped right into the menu, explaining everything. As the food came out he and another waiter were showing... More

I am Korean. I know when the dish is not acceptable. Chef is probably young or not experienced. I had Naengmyun. They should have paid me to have that dish. Awful.

We really enjoyed our visit to Shilla. We had marinated pork and the beef ribs BBQ, which came with a variety of delicious sides. We had little experience with Korean BBQ, and the server was helpful in guiding us. She told us how to make the lettuce rolls, and suggested some other dishes to round out the meal.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
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.
