    Head straight to the grill in the back to find some of the only Korean food served in the Theater District. Bibimbap, udon, bulgogi. What a Midtown surprise.

    Love the udon! Quick and delicious and many options. Also a decent cheesesteak sandwich. Beware of the toy section. It's addictive. Haha

    Overwhelming but they have every grocery item, snacks, drinks, sandwiches and sushi. Chicken parm melt was very good

    Great place to get sundubu (tofu soup) during work. The other options in the area are terrible.

    The cheap burger deluxe, pizza, good buffet, and sushis. All in 10 mins even at busiest times of the day. Hit the buffet at 11h30, the food is here and the crowd is not!

    Good sushi, good udon, GREAT turkey burgers, pretty spectacular hot food buffet and very fresh salads. The lines look long, but you won't wait for more than a few seconds.

    I don't know how people can say this is the best korean food in the neighborhood... If it's true, just change neighborhood: it's completely tasteless.

    Chicken salad sandwich on a roll with lettuce and tomatoes, and just a bit of hot sause. I get this sandwich every single time.

    Favorite deli-style spicy veggie udon! Get extra zucchini, scallions, mushrooms, dried tofu, and seaweed.

    This is a deli on steroids. It's almost scary. There's absolutely nothing you can't find here. Crazy busy during the lunch rush on weekdays so if you're not into crowds, wait til after 3pm.

    Your standard workday lunch buffet but good selection and open at night too. Korean soft tofu soup is great on those 20-deg winter days.

    Very reliable midtown lunch locale with basically every food you can imagine. By no means should I besmirch its name. However, come for either late lunch or early lunch. Way too crowded from 12 to 115

    Excellent for a quick non-fast food lunch. Look for vegetable ramen bowl. Lots of food for under $7. They deliver too (via

    While this place has everything, there are cheaper and friendlier places in Midtown that won't nickel and dime you!

    A lot of good choices for food, but watch out when paying, they almost always overcharge me/don't give the correct change, and their receipts aren't itemized.

    They make your food quickly. Then they take your money quickly. I've never waited more than 30 seconds to pay for food even with 10 people in front of me in line.
