"Angry Korean Lady" serves awesome Korean food!

I don't know why anyone would ding a star from this restaurant for bad/ rude service. Frankly, I'd take away a star if she was friendly and warm. This is the Angry Korean Lady, folks. You come here for awesome Korean mainstays with a side of sassy cussing. This was highly recommended by a... read more

After reading countless reviews from many sources, and having a strong desire to try a new-to-me kind of food, my wife, 6-year old son and myself went to Ah-Lang for lunch on a Saturday. My desire to try Korean food overcame the trepidation of rules, especially since I can completely understand the one (wo)man show concept. We had never had... More

Went here knowing that the restaurant is famous for the angry Korean lady, AKL but just wanted to try it based on the reviews of the food. Food was ok, nothing to write home about. AKL was ok but has her list of rules posted on the tables that supposedly you must follow. Let's just say I wouldn't go here... More

Every yr we come to Honolulu, we make it a point to come here. Usually more than one time. Just make sure you follow her rules. And definitely bring her a good beer or nice glass of wine. Enjoy the show she puts on for you. Embrace it and join in the fun/anger ;-)! Our favorite dishes: 1. Green onion... More

We had a blast! The Angry Korean Lady was actually very nice, even though she did decide to close about 1/2 hour after we sat down and got a bit upset when people insisted on coming in despite the closed sign. She said she was tired of cooking. We were amused, but we knew to expect this. The food was... More

Me and my friend can't believe our experience there. Yes, the lady had such a nasty attitude. I asked the lady simple question about food nicely. She started to screaming to us for no reason and got nasty more and more and told us to leave. She said "No food for you!" What's up with that? What kind of restaurant... More

After reading a review in "Honolulu" Magazine, we were very interested in trying the food here. The review spoke highly of the food and of the quirky ambiance at the restaurant, which were both screaming, "go here!" [Sorry this review is so long, but this is not your average restaurant of any kind!] If you like authentic Korean food, this... More
