Delivery was fast. Food was pretty good. But I ordered a dinner plate that was supposed to come with 3 small side dishes. It said call the restaurant for side dish availability -- well who wants to do that when you're ordering from Seamless? so I figured I'd just take my chances and see what they bring. There were only 2....a very small side salad and a very small order of kim-chi, which I think of as more of a condiment than a side dish.

Their kimchi jigae is delicious. Lots of pork, noodles and even a few pieces of Tteok. The broth was a nice balance of spice and the kimchi itself is pretty darn tasty. I lived in Seoul as an expat for a handful of years and this satisfies my craving pretty well!

Kimchi stew came with no pork. Not a little pork. None!

I think I've ordered the cold buckwheat noodles from here about 10 times in 2 weeks. Delivery is fast and it comes with a side of kimchi. So delish!

I work in the Union Square area - Express Manna Kitchen is the healthiest good tasting option. Ingredients are always fresh, taste is very good, delivery is fast and reliable. And its really the only place you can get non-fried, vegetarian food that isn't salad in several blocks. Portions are enormous - a single dish easily feeds two people. It's not five star dining in the sense that there's nothing that you couldn't do at home - but if you are looking for tasty, reliable, healthy, efficient and well priced, Go for it!

I wanted to like this place, but what happened today compelled me to leave my two cents. I've ordered from this place a few times because I am limited to only a few Korean lunch options on seamless. Their stews are not very flavorful, bul-go-gi dry, and the spicy buckwheat noodle, well, just don't waste your money. I ordered it today, and they totally botched it--gave me sweet not very spicy cold noodles with pickled cucumbers, dikon, 1/2 of a hard boiled egg and kimchi, whereas, the one I ordered, the spicy buckwheat noodles, included sliced beef among other things. When I called to inform them of their mistake, they made it seem like I was in the wrong. No apologies, just "we'll send it to you (*click*)." Some time later, I am delivered 3 thin flavorless slices of beef. A dissatisfying lunch for $15.01...I feel ripped off. Never again.

Their Kalbi JJIM - (Beef rib stew) is awesome! just like the ones made at home. Can't get this at other normal korean restaurants in NYC - their Kalbi Tang (beef rib soup) also has very generous portions of meat. Highly recommend it.

Food actually tasted like Korean food, and delivery was fast
Posted 4 years ago by Anna H.
depends on what you get. I think their kimchi stew is one of the best I've ever had, and their bibimbap is great, a nice healthy filling meal...but I not as big a fan of their meat dishes...their soups are steller though.

Very bland, had to pick out some mushrooms that were clearly past their prime. Ginger tea is good, though.

WOW such quick service. They took like 15 minutes to get to me. Plus the food is great. On a hungover afternoon, I ordered the super healthy silky tofu soup and it came with decent sides and rice- I was immediately cured. yum.

Express Manna is exactly what I'm looking for in a takeout restaurant -- fast, easy, fresh, and relatively healthy all while still keeping the flavor. I think everything at Express Manna is very filling, but the portions are just right and won't weigh you down. Most of the time, I get the Bi Bim Bab (although it gets to be a little cold by the time it gets to you) or the Bulgogi Bab. The tofu stew is also really good -- lots of tofu and vegetables (which change depending on what's fresh, I suppose). I have no complaints about the delivery time and the delivery people actually stand out in my mind because they're so gracious -- they greet me by name and tell me to enjoy. Small thing, yes, but it's a step above having food thrown in my face by an impatient delivery person. All in all, Express Manna is a go-to place for me.

Food took 45 minutes to get here. It was cold... Definitely not the best korean food I've had...

Always good, every time. Huge portions, prompt delivery, never any mistakes. Can't miss.

Do NOT order from this place. The food is decent. However, the delivery service has the worst reputation in the neighborhood. Waiting time is usually 90-120 minutes and they have the rudest delivery people in NYC history. They make up excuses not to come upstairs so they don't have to even bother getting off the bike. The running joke in our building is that they always say "the buzzer didn't work" or "your elevator is broken." Ha!

Great, fast Korean food!

No bad at all for Korean food outside of Korea town. The bulgogi bibimbap had a good crunchy texture from the stone pot. The bulgogi serving was generous but the vegetables were definitely "middle of the road" rather than some of the more exotic ones you can find in K town. I loved the duk bokki (rice cake appetizer) -- good seasoning and not too spicy, the way I like it. The seafood pancakes were just ok; I've had much better but I've also had worse. One other nit is that the ban chan (side dishes) were pretty paltry compared to what you get in K town. But alas, K town doesn't deliver down here and compared to other options, this one is pretty good.

the bibimbap is great. great value for 9.50! very tasty too. the delivery times were fine.

I live on the same street only 2 aves away from EMK and it took them 40 min to deliver my order (where usually they only take like 15m) and once it got here the order was wrong. When I called to inform them of this they told me that I was wrong eventhough I was looking directly at the email from seamless web showing the order how I originally placed it. They told me they would deliver the correct order immediately but I guess our definitions of the word immediately are not the same cause the guy didn't come til an hour after I called them to complain. I used to order from EMK regularly and never had a problem but after all these issues and getting no customer service from them I wouldn't order from them again!
