Buzzy late-night haunt with Korean bites
Korean · East Village · $$$
The Zagat Review
Specializing in “out-of-the-box” Korean fare, this East Villager matches “excellent renditions” of “modern” dishes (the “honey butter chips are a must” ) with “high-quality sojus” ; the “pint-sized” space is “tight” , but once you “cram yourself in” the food “speaks for itself.”

every thing on the menu is amazing. and yes I got to try everything on the menu. the dessert with the honey chips and ice cream will surprise the heck out of you. The mushroom salad could be the best salad I ever had in my life.

I love Oiji! The service and food are always great. Every time I go here, I try to pick something different on the menu, and I'm not afraid to do so, because all of the food I've tried so far tasted great. I would definitely recommend this place.

Every dish we tried was phenomenal, though the beef bowl was least impressive in aesthetic. Try the honey butter chips for dessert. The menu isn’t so big that with a group, you can try half the things on the food menu. I like the new reserve cocktail menu and the additional information provided via the symbols to help reduce choice overload. The restaurant shows attention to many of the little details in the decor and service. To illustrate this, the toilet paper in the restrooms is wrapped in red tissue paper, and the server replaced our dishes with every round of tapas. The server did right by my group of 5 by helping us not to over-order. He also took our preferences into account by providing us our orders in several rounds. I asked for a cocktail recommendation based on my tastes and enjoyed the one I settled on from the choices he provided. The space is tiny, though beautiful, and not well lit for photos. The entrance may be wheelchair accessible, but the dining room is tight and the restrooms are not wheelchair accessible. Will surely return for another meal. Both chefs are on Instagram!
