Surprised

Really enjoyed the Korean food. Pricier than food in Honolulu but that applies to most restaurants on Kauai. Food was tasty. So much so that we ate dinner there twice while we were in Kapaa. Not a fancy interior...just functional.

Randomly popped in here as it was on our way, very glad we did the food was brilliant, especially the meat Jun and Kalbi. Would definitely recommend it. Prices were very reasonable too.

After feasting on Soons BBQ on Oahu, my desire for more Meat Jun when we arrived on Kauai was insatiable until we discovered Korean Bar-B-Q. The Meat Jun was AWESOME. Pair that with some Jasmine Rice and Kimchee, YUM!

My wife & I had lunch at the Korean BBQ on Saturday 2 May. We have eaten here several times before and always enjoyed our meals. I usually order the Kim Chee Soup – can’t get that many places – but opted for the Bi Bim Bap (#12 $8.50) instead. My wife ordered Chop Chae (#25 $10.50). The Bi Bim... More

It;s not fancy but the barbecue pork and beef pack a terrific flavor punch. Dining in works out better than take out.

Grabbed the dinner special to go and ate back in our hotel. Good amount of food - although $19 was fairly expensive compared to local alternatives. Beef short-rib was excellent, great flavour and tender. Otherwise a little bland in terms of shrimp tempura and other samplers.

We love Koren food and this did not disappoint. Had a great meal and tried to eat here two other times. Once it was 11:05 and looked to be open but we were shewed away. I guess they weren't ready and are on Kauai time as they were supposed to open at 11:00. Another time they were closed. Anyway, would... More

We tried this place based on the reviews we've seen online through various websites. The rib eye BBQ and the chicken BBQ are delicious. Every time we come to Kauai we have to go here now. The prices are also very reasonable. For those who care, you also don't have to cook your own food.

I have been visiting Kauai pretty much annually for over twenty-five years. When I am visiting, and I need a kimchi fix, this is where I go. The restaurant has been in this location for a very long time. I believe ownership changed about four years ago, but if anything it got better as a result. If you are looking... More

We tried the big dinner combo of kalbi, katsu and manjoo, but it was just ok for us. We were a bit disappointed, since we been reading good reviews. We didn't find the place right away so we went back the day before we left not wanting to miss the experience, but really, nothing to write home about.
