It's a fuss free restaurant. Simple but great flavours. Tried their hot stonepot bibinbaap, friedchicked and dumplings. Everything was great. However they could do more with unlimited offerings of kimchi and other accompaniments with the food order.

They have lunch specials for weekday lunches and the hot stone bibimbap is great. Service is quick as well and there is usually not a wait to get a table

Don't get too excited, it is quite greasy, fast food, pleasant service, good location on Lexington ave, UES, casual atmosphere, can be very loud with young children. Food is just average, but not many choices for Korean on UEs. It is okay. I've eaten and...More

Korea Express on Lexington Avenue is a place for hot, authentic Korean food in a no-frills setting. The menu includes the usual bibimbap (in hot stone pot) and jab-chae but does not seem to include Korean BBQ.

I am not an expert on Asian food but the shrimp fried rice was best ever. Warning. Every serving is for two or more. Order less than you think. But I bet you won’t have any to take home!

Not bad but really there are better choices that are at a slightly higher price point. They do good kids McGinty however and a few dishes are remarkable items.

The ingredients were bad and the dishes were less than bad. The Nepalese waitress educated me on the nuances of Korean cuisine and culture, unaware that I lived there for several years, and almost everything she said was false. The entire kitchen was from Mexico...More
