I'd say this is one of my favorite place in oahu. Our visit here has always been pleasant though we had to wait for over an hour the second time. My favorite is the bbq chicken. I had tempura on my first visit. Good customer service and of course good food, the price is also decent so I'm giving it... More

So much food and soooo good! I would eat there every day but then I'd have to go to the gym the portions are so large. I've never ordered the same thing and have never been disappointed.

Willow Tree is our go to restaurant. We love the banchan that comes with dinner. The pickled vegetables are my favorite, my daughter loves the potato. The turnip soup is addicting! Our favorites include spicy chicken katsu and spicy pork. The owners and staff are always friendly and helpful. I highly recommend trying their food if you haven't!

Wonderful little Korean fusion restaurant tucked away in a shopping center. Loved their Kalbi ribs. We ate here several times during our stay. Lunch is the best bargain for your dollar.

Great prices, food, and customer service. Doesn't look like much outside, but it's worth going! Gets busy so don't be surprised if you have to wait for a table.

Get the special and if you don't have a big appetite share it with someone else and get an extra soup! Delish. Really enjoyed all of the various flavors, how fresh everything was. Excellent kimchee.

This restaurant is hard to see as it blends in to the plaza, but it is a fabulous place to eat. Family run, great food and authentic flavors and preparation. The Korean ribs and Kimchi will win over your heart. When we lived here, we ate here often, so when we visited....first stop. Try this small, but fantastic location, you... More

The Willow Tree never disappoints! Don't be surprised if you have to wait for a table, it's always that good. Be prepared for a large serving of whatever you order, so be good and hungry when you go there!

Tried this restaurant after reading TripAdvisor reviews. Without having read the reviews I probably wouldn't have looked at it twice. The Restaurant is clean and comfortable but uninspiring. However,the food was very flavourful and well presented, the service was prompt and friendly, and the whole experience was very pleasurable. It is worth noting that there is no alcohol available.

This is by far my favorite Korean restaurant. We have been eating here at least once a month for over 20 years. The owners and staff are very nice. The food is tasty but if you want the real authentic korean food you may be disappointed. I'm picky with food so if they served me something weird I won't eat... More
