Can't beat the price or the service! Always a pleasure and we keep coming back year after year! Great for family and friends. Go for the daily specials and expect abundance.

My wife and I have been visiting Kauai annually for many years, and have tried many restaurants spanning a wide range of price points. I tend to go back to restaurants that serve really tasty food. If the service is friendly, even better. If I also get good value for your dining dollar, then that makes the place even dearer... More

Don't let the modest ambience discourage you from going to this spot for good food. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. We ordered the dinner special that featured the BBQ ribs and shrimp tempura. The prices were also pleasant.

We ate at Korean Bar-B-Q on Christmas Day. I had the BBQ chicken and Tempura shrimp. Both were very good. The service was very good. I will eat there again on my next trip.

Authentic Korean food. Served fresh and quick. Ordered the family combo plate for three was enough for 5.

I had their lunch special mixed plate... generous portions of BBQ chicken and panfried marinated beef, along with rice, mac salad, and veggies. It's a bargain by island standards, and very delicious. Also, service was quick and friendly.

Food here is fantastic, but it is a cheapo...at least it used to be since after renovation (place look very nice now) but I believe rates are up as well. Still anything you take is very good. My favor squid with veggies, BBQ Pork and of course Kalbi/Karbi but last one is a bit pricey where the other two are... More

Everything we ordered was excellent. I would be back here next trip for sure, but probably only one night as we had a massive bill. The short rib is delicious but not much in an order given the price. Fried chicken was great. Katsu was great. Tempura was solid.

I had kalbi beef with chicken katsu and my wife had tempura. Both were tasty with good amount of sides all for 35 bucks. It is a small place and it was very busy with many locals in the place. I would definitely come here next time we are in Kauai

I'd never have noticed this very modest little joint on my own: a local friend took us here. The furnishings are very simple and more than a bit worn, but scrupulously clean and the service was friendly and prompt. I am no expert on Korean cuisine, but the food was plentiful and delicious and the dinner we had here remains... More
