Great Korean BBQ!!

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... read more

Small and humble husband and wife business with great tasting food. Meat Jun, Fish Jun, Kal-bi, Bi bim cook su...all my favorites! Could eat here at least once a week...sometimes I do, if you include takeout.

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.

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.
