Our Story

our story

Located in the heart of Manhattan’s Koreatown, The Kunjip offers authentic Korean cuisine in a truly unique setting that dates back to medieval Korean times. As a family run establishment, we offer a diverse mix of flavors with various homemade delicacies such as Korean style kimchi, dumplings, sausages, and a wide variety of soups. Our fresh ingredients—grown on our own family farm—are used to prepare special seasonal dishes including our lettuce wrap and sausage soup special.

The Kunjip values quality ingredients, because we like to know exactly what goes into our food. We offer special seasonal dishes including the Ssambap special in the summer—a farm-to-table specialty served with fresh vegetables grown at The Kunjip’s farm in New Jersey—and Soon Dae-gukbap in the winter—prepared with our own house-made Korean blood sausage.

We are open 7 days a week from 6:30 am to 3:00 am from Sunday to Wednesday and open 24 hours from Thursday to Saturday.
