Amazing Taste

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.

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.

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.
