Good tasty Korean food

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

In Honolulu most of the Korean restaurants turn our a fairly good product. Recently I was invited to the Mililani Korean BBQ restaurant for dinner and now the bar is raised! This place does EXCELLENT Korean food and the service is also outstanding. I got the tofu/kimchee soup with seafood. I asked for spicy and got it!!! I was on... More

Try the Kapolei special which has short ribs, thinly sliced marinated chicken batterd in egg, teriyaki bbq chicken and steak. Comes with four sides and rice. Had I known... More

Great place to get Korean BBQ, Everything is good. Here is a suggestion: Order two meals for a family of 4. The portions are way too big for each person to order one meal. Share!

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.

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
