Well this was a next level meal. I have been to quite a few Korean restaurants in the city but this meal was Jungsik level good.
I had the scallops, fried cauliflower, octopus, sea urchin bowl and chili lobster and of course the famed dessert of ice cream and butter chips. Everything was excellent!

The food and service were both excellent. The only difficulty you will have with this place is trying to decide which of the delicious menu items to order because everything is amazing. We were seated immediately for our reservation and the service was flawless. Also very good cocktails. Nothing bad to say about this place.

I've never had a bad dish at Oiji. In fact, it's the opposite, everything here is DELICIOUS, from the mushroom salad (a hint of spice, fried mushrooms over the crisp lettuce and dressing) to their new lobster noodle dish to their perfectly crisp and ungreasy fried chicken. I'd go for the dessert alone: potato chips dipped in spiced honey atop vanilla ice cream (amazing!). The best restaurant in the East Village, and one of the best in the city.

The food is amazing.

There should be a bit more light on the outdoor dining. It gets tricky to actually see what we are eating.

A wonderful restaurant and will recommend it to my friends. The environment is good for dating and drinking with friends. We've order 5 dishes include 2 OIJI bowls ($33 before tax and service fee). OIJI bowl is my favorite one.

We had a broad assortment of food -- all were absolutely delicious. Waiter was honest in terms of recommending number of dishes that the three of us should order, and his wine advice was spot-on. Particularly delicious among our choices were the duck, the mushroom salad, the chicken and the octopus. We will be back very soon to try some of the items we missed out on. A completely excellent meal in every way.

Everything was amazing but a bit pricey. For 2 people with a bottle of wine expect to pay over $200, without tip. Overall the experience was worth it, but definitely for special occasions.
