Great food & Friendly staff

The meat was flame grilled and very good quality, especially for the price. This was some of the most flavorful meat i have ever had.

We had tried to go to a restaurant that was closed on the day we went, so looked for alternatives within walking distance of our condo. Found this place by accident, saw the Trip advisor symbol on door and while we were looking at menu in window a couple walked by and told us the food was excellent so we... More

Got the Kalbi with chicken and mixed grill with sides of steamed rice, mac and potato salad, kimchi and lettuce salad. Flavours were tasty and definitely come back if Im in the area and feeling...

This is a modest little place but always busy. Staff are friendly. Food is completely delicious. I had combo beef and chicken plate which came with slaw, mac potato salad, and kimchee for $14. Will definitely go again.

When you go in it seems very "mom and pop" because it is! Don't let that throw you, it was very delicious! I've had Korean BBQ in Korea and I must say this is some of the best I've had since. The kimche is the standard factory made you get at every restaurant in Korea or Japan, but that's not... More

Wouldn't have given this place a second if it had not been recommended to us. Very reasonably priced. Food was delicious. Service very friendly and fast.

Stopped by this place for a quick cheap eat. It's definitely no thrills when it comes to since but the food is on point. We got the fried dumplings - nice, not greasy, nice sweet/salty/tangy dipping sauce. Got the combos - kalbi ribs (thick cut) with BBQ chicken on one & chicken katsu on the other. Both chickens were good... More

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.
