Just opening the door, you can smell the delicious-ness!

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

this is a family owned restaurant that cares about both the quality of the food they serve you and the service they provide. They have been in business for over 20 years and the place is constantly packed with happy customers. Look through the window and you will see customers enjoying themselves over a meal. They also do take out.... More

Delicious food! Every time I visit I make sure to have a meal here. I love the Korean BBQ beef with rice. There is often a wait for a table but we'll worth it! Service is very friendly and good. If your in Kailua and u eat here you won't be disappointed!

Willow Tree is AWESOME, the absolute best Korean food period. We go there quite often, everything they have is delicious. I personally recommend the sizzling plate of spicy pork, or sizzling Kal-bi (short ribs).The combination plate is great and gives you a taste of Meat Jun, Korean bbq chicken, bulgoki(teriyaki style beef)mandoo, rice, all dishes come with small appetizers also.Go...

The food is very good and excellent value. The man serving us was so welcoming and even gave us a map of Kailua. I really recommend the Beef Kalbi, very generous portion and delicious. Quick service, airconned and was very accommodating and understanding towards my life threatening nut allergy.

2 words.. Lunch Special, the biggest bang for your buck for actual authentic korean food. not the korean food you're used to on the mainland, this place is by far the best korean place i've ever been to, from the atmosphere, to price and taste. GO NOW!

We found this restaurant on tripadvisor and ordered takeaway. The kalbi grilled beef rib was full of flavour. Delicious! Must try if you are in the area.
