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.

we've never had Korean BBQ and had no idea what to order. My husband and I told the server this and she recommended a couple of options. We had Korean Kalbi, Pork and Chicken. Everything was delicious and the lady even gave us some kimchi to try. Thanks for a great meal!

: Korean BBQ Restaurant, Kinipopo Shopping Village, 4-356 Kuhio Hwy., #E, Kapaa, HI 96746, tel. 808-823-6744. The staff was friendly and pleasant. There were a goodly number of people and a nice buzz in the restaurant. We had the Steamed Mandoo dinner served with potato-mac salad, vegetable and rice ($9.50)--the 10 steamed dumplings which were okay and the sauce of... More

Decided to give this place a try later one evening and I'm glad we did. My wife had the soup and I had the dinner special. Everything was great. We did takeout and brought it home. Really nice people too and they were busy.

If you're staying in the Kapaa area give this place a chance. The restaurant it's self is nothing to write home about but the food is delicious. If you can, order ahead and to go..then you can enjoy the food in the comfort of your hotel room. The staff was very friendly and nice.

An incredible place. We're local, which means nothing; however, when we go to this restaurant, we are treated like royalty. This is a true family business; mother, father, son, daughter, and when you go there you'll feel like you're their newly adopted family. Mrs. Kim ALWAYS has a smile on her face; her husband is the master chef, The rest... More

If you like Korean food, this is the best you will find on the island! If you don't know about Korean food, this is the place to try it! This is a small (seats about 30), quaint restaurant located on the main drag in Kapaa (Kuhio Hwy). It is in a small strip mall and it is easy to overlook,... More

It's hard to find a reasonable family oriented restaurant on Sundays on Kauai. We went here with five people. The young girl waitresses worked very hard. They were quick and friendly. The food was plentiful and good. I peeked in the kitchen and it was very clean!

We were told by our concierge that this place was great, so I checked out the TripAdvisor reviews and we decided to give it a shot. Service was excellent and we were back in our car with our take-out order within 15 minutes. We had the BBQ chicken, pork, and Kalbi (thin). All were served on a bed of sticky... More
