“Good selection for a food court”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

If you are in Hawaii and want something fast and easy, but different from what you can get at the Pleasant Ridge Mega Mall back home at Anytown, USA, this is your place.

I really liked the choices of sides - a plate comes with rice and 4 sides. I chose kim chee, chinese radishes, and brocolli (can't remember the 4th). BBQ chicken was pretty good, and the side sauce was tasty.

Meat Jun, shoyu potatoes are a must. This is the perfect place for take out Hawaiian style Korean food.

“Best value in Honolulu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

We had something like the "Yummy combo". This is the best semi-fast-food we have ever had. If we were on a tight budget, we could have lived on food from Yummy for the whole week we were on Oahu.

Everything is fresh. Hot food is hot and cold food is cold. This is a better example of Korean BBQ than what we find on the mainland. There are locations all over Honolulu. There is also one in the food court at the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center, right in the middle of Waikiki. This food court is very low key and comfortable, but the one at Ala Moana is over the edge.

“ok food but they gotta update...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

Korean food culture in South Korea improved and changed so much in last 2, 3 decades but fast food type korean bbq joints in Waikiki seemed to set in time. This was one of them. Can't expect too much from food court place, but still the display was poor and bbqs were too dry. Still ok for quick lunch but wish they learn from modern korean food and restaurant trend...

“YUMMY is right”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2011

Its the first place I wanted to eat since I landed. I love Korean food and its hard to find in Idaho. Even though there is not atmosphere, the food is worth it
