Bad Host

  • No, I would not go back!

my friends and i arrived at 8pm, and the host Rebecca said it will be 1 hour and half wait. She took our phone number said that she will call if a table is opened up earlier. We went down the street and had a drink at Maysville (which had great service and pretty good drinks we also end up eating here later and the food is great!). We came back to Hanjan to check on our table at 9:20pm and the host said she has called and couldn't get to us so she had to give our table away. (We checked, and she had the right number, but we received no calls) She said if we sit at the bar and have some drinks she will get us a table before 10pm. We had a drink and waited till 10:15pm. Meanwhile there were tables opening up, but the host keeping giving them to other people who just walked in. We end up leaving and had delicious dinner at Maysville. I lived in NYC for almost 10 years, never came across a host like this. She doesn't know what she is doing, and has attitude problem when confronted. I am sure the food is not bad, but you can have amazing Koren food couple blocks away in Ktown.

  • Yes, I would go back!

Had drinks last night. Good dishes and great service. However, Ramen was terrible. Do not order Ramen here. I am a Korean and eat ramen often, this was worst ramen I ever had in my entire life. 7-11 cup ramen is much better than this one why waste $$$ on awful ramen.

My husband and I had what we thought was a lovely meal at Hanjan until we left the restaurant and came down with the worst food poisoning of our lives. 72 hours later, we are back in the land of the living, but may never be able to eat Korean food of any sort again. We have been in touch with the restaurant, who have been very nice, but there are plenty of other places to eat in the city so my recommendation would be to steer clear.
