    Lovely people and attention! Even the menu isn't 100% gluten free, they make all efforts and care to reach it! I truly recommend if you're celiac and you're visiting NYC!

    This place takes a fast-food perspective, offering bargain-priced renditions of things like soondubu, bibimbap, pajeon, and already cooked bulgogi.

    Their seating facing the windows is not ideal for socializing, but *is* ideal for browsing through your social media platforms on their free wi-fi!

    KuKu introduced a 3-course, box meal ($10) this week. The kimchi rice version, with dumplings and salad, was good on a first try.

    Bring a book and plenty of time, if you're planning to wait for the slow, "quick serve" Korean food at WaWa Canteen. The vegetable ramen soup+pork dumplings were good. But worth the wait? You decide.

    The best spot on NYU downtown campus. Great staff. They never forget a name or an order. Jackie is amazing!!

    Although still delicious, the vegetable ramen is just mushroom ramen. You need to add veggies for $1.50 to actually get vegetable ramen.

    Beware KuKu's foursquare free dumpling special. The new owner says she's been trying to nix the special since the summer ended. (Following some discussion, KuKu did honor it.)

    Ryan is the best...one of the reasons why I keep coming back. The chicken bibimbop is my favorite.

    If you want to avoid a long wait to enjoy your meal, call ahead of time (at least 20 minutes) and your food will be ready to pick up when you get there!

    Sometimes, when you order steak on your salad, they pile that sh*t up. And it's a wonderful feeling.

    Mini tiffin was good. It's a cheap meal. To go dosa packing could be better

    Recommending ordering online before showing otherwise expect a long wait. Bibimbop not good at all and not authentic. Kimchee fried rice looked better
