Gaonnuri means 'center of the world'. They raise the bar on typical Korean dining. Located on the 39th penthouse floor at the corner building of Broadway, it offers panoramic floor to ceiling views of the city. Decor is modern and very appealing. Service here was much better than expected. For starters, we had the Oyster Jun and Bossam. For main, marinated galbi. The appetizers were good, but note that portion sizes are smaller than typical Korean restaurants. The Oyster Jun wasn't entirely what I had in mind. It was individual oysters versus being a full pancake. Bossam was a nice dish, and the kimchi was well made. The seasoned octopus was delicious. The pork belly was fatty, complemented well by the sesame leaves. The galbi was good, but not great. I found the beef dry and slightly tough. The banchan seemed quite ordinary. We did opt on dessert, the Yuzu Parfait. It wasn't really a parfait, but I still really liked this dish; sweet but tarty, beautifully presented, and a great way to end the meal.

I've been here probably 3 times. It's pretty good BBQ, and when we came for a big birthday party they were really accommodating and with sake, beer, etc it was still decently priced. Pretty yummy BBQ and we got our own separate room. The other times I've come with smaller parties have been good too.

This was the first time I have visited a Korean restaurant. We went there for my 30th birthday meal. The staff are welcoming and friendly and always smiling. We had reserved a window seat as we had read about the views from the restaurant. We werent disappointed. The views were amazing, our table was in a really good position. We thoroughly enjoyed the food. I had the calamari starter and the rib entree. Very impressed with both. My black forest dessert was set on fire in front of me. Impressive and delicious. The cocktails were spot on aswell. Very impressed overall. And would highly recommend.

Gaonnuri is an upscale restaurant in heart of Koreatown of Manhattan along 32nd street. It's located on the top floor of the building on the corner of Broadway. When you get off the elevator, you'll take note of the sweeping views of the city from the floor to ceiling windows. If you decide to barbeque at your table, you get a different area to sit, otherwise you don't get a grill and any meat you ordered will be cooked in the kitchen. A tasty starter to get is the Bossam which comes with sliced pork belly, kimchi, and octopus wrapped in pickled napa cabbage. For the main course, get the marinated Galbi which is sliced beef short ribs. Compared to most Korean restaurants, you don't get many side dishes and the portions are noticeably smaller, but what lacks in quantity of food, is made up in the service.

I went here after it recently opened for a holiday dinner with coworkers. The view is beautiful overlooking other illuminated tall buildings of midtown. We waited at the bar which is right in front of the elevators, makes it easy to spot someone if you are waiting for people but also makes you turn your head each time the elevator door opens. The food was good like the other restaurants in Ktown. Great place to take a date.

For an amazing view of the city in an elegant setting, this place is a good deal. For really good Korean food, however, it's sub-par. I remember distinctly ordering the kalbitang when I visited: it was rather bland, which is a real shame when you have a nice short rib. I've had amazing kalbitang before (in fact, across the street). On the bright side, it wasn't as overpriced as most rooftop restaurants are. That being said, the decor is modern and elegant given the price. It's a much better deal than the Empire State Building.
