Nice food, away from the crowd.

We came here on a Sunday night. We were overwhelmed by the crowds of Waikiki and were looking for something quiet. The food here was delicious and prices were reasonable considering how close it is to the tourist area. The staff were lovely and made us feel at home.

We went to this restaurant 3 times, although we were staying in Waikiki less than a week. The food was super delicious. We didn´t care about the main dish, but the appetizers, that come in little dishes. We were already full, when the seafood soup came. Moderate prices and I would love to go there again sometime.

Living in US for 20 years of my life, this is one of the best korean restaurant i ever been. Kalbi is absolutely amazing the way they marinated, and i don't taste any MSG. As korean, i am picky about certain food or side dishes, but everything was perfect as it can be. Waitress/waiters were super nice, but they are... More

This little restaurant just off Kuhio Avenue is an absolute gem. I just wish we had found it earlier! It was a two minute walk from our hotel and looked inviting, so we thought we'd try it. The interior is nothing flashy, but the walls are covered with the drawings of happy and contented customers! There were quite a few... More

I stayed at Hyatt Regency Waikiki and it was only 5 min walking distance. Plenty side dishes that were very tasty and service was great. I went there for lunch but ended up getting more food to go. Great atmosphere and would visit again next time in Waikiki.

The kalbi ribs were great but we misread the menu and got a noodle dish that was more soup than the panfried noodles we were after. They still had a good flavor. Tab bit pricey for the portion though.

Like another reviewer, we stumbled upon this restaurant when our first choice was too crowded. I've never had Korean food, so it was time to try! All our meals were served takeout style - standard "to go" containers with plastic ware and napkins. There are a few metal tables outside and so we sat down to eat. The food was... More

Excellent ethnic food choices! This is a grab and go eatery, but there is outside seating on the patio (lacks atmosphere). We picked up food several times as carry out. Worth giving a try, enjoy!

Happened upon this Korean restaurant when our first choice restaurant was full for dinner. Excellent Korean food with very authent ambience. Be sure to try the Kimchi Pancakes, Pork Belly, Monkfish, and seafood steam pot. All excellent with great banchan. Highly recommended.

If you are looking for good Korea food; this is where the locals eat. Excellent food with excellent service. I will make sure to visit again before I leave Waikiki!
