Look & Feel: Joining the vibrant cultural scene in Wan Chai’s Starstreet Precinct, Danji welcomes diners into its semi-alfresco space to make the most out of Sun Street’s unique landscape. To create an unpretentious dining experience, the restaurant employs a natural wooden palette in its interior to complement the home-style Korean comfort food it serves.

On The Menu: Diners can expect all the crave-worthy plates in Danji.

If you are here for the Danji’s home-style meal, you won’t want to miss Hanwoo Kimchi Fried Rice, prepared with 1++ top grade Korean beef, and Impossible Bibimbap with tofu and quinoa. Of course, it would not be a complete K-food experience without some soup. The flavorful and hearty Tofu Seafood Stew and Busan Fishcake Soup would instantly warm you up in winter. For those who are also craving some more meaty dishes, the 1++ Hanwoo premium striploin grilled at your table will be ultimate K-BBQ experience you are looking for. At Danji, diners will also find specials on the menu including the social-media-viral Soy Sauce Marinated Crab.

Besides a full menu of Korean classics, Danji also serves a long list of Korean drinks including soju, makgeolli, Korean sake, beer and even Korean wines. Hong Kong diners are also encouraged to step outside of their comfort zone and try Boksoondoga, a premium makgeolli that is extremely smooth to drink with Champagne-like bubbles.

Great For: Small group gatherings.

FYI: Danji is now soft-opened to welcome guests during happy hours and dinners, stay close to the restaurant’s socials for further updates on its opening hours.
