Basic Korean BBQ

I love Korean BBQ. Kapolei Korean does it well. It is a typical Korean BBQ for Hawaii with no bells and whistles and no real service. But the food is usually fresh and the Kalbi is tasty. You won't be disappointed and you will be satisfied.

Had the spicy chicken and meat jun. Very good flavors and enough spice. Better than the other near by.

This is a very short walk for a lot of the Ko'Olina resorts and hotels, and offers a great way to prevent the outrageous restaurant prices at those resorts. This is mostly a take-out place, even though there are a handful of tables inside and a couple outside if you want to eat right there. While they do have some... More

This place gives very large portions and the food was very tasty. Not a fancy place, but take out or sit down inside and it's clean. We ordered a meat jun plate and the Kapolei special (teri chicken, teri beef, meat jun, kalbi) which comes with rice, mac salad and choice of four sides. Personally not a fan of kimchi,... More

Tried the Kalbi ribs - got to choose 4 sides, plus came with rice. Portion was fairly big and tasty. Did not finish all of it and had to the the rest with me. Probably enought left over for another half meal at least. I thought the price was reasonable at about $10 for such a large serving. Good food... More

Great value, tons of food, & yummy. We always stop here when we vacation. Not much of an ambiance or decor but it's clean and they serve fresh veggies and delicious korean bbqs at an incredible price. Much better than yummy bbq on the other side of the mall. It's only self-service in a deli style. You choose your entree... More

We go to Kapolei Korean BBQ quite often. We like to order the kalbi, meat jun and shrimp tempura. They have good vegetables to choose from and the prices are reasonable.
