Casual restaurant in a strip mall. Nothing fancy but decent food. Try the bbq pork. Lots of variety of side dishes (kimchee).

Good Korean Food. Service is fine. Large seating area. Out of the few Korean food places in Kapolei, this is the norm we go to.

This place features a standard array of "side dishes" along with a variety of Korean BBQ and some Korean soups--you better like spicy! In this same shopping center. Owner "Kimo" is friendly and a good guy to just "talk-story" with. We suggest the "Kapolei BBQ Special" plate. Good for two diners--or one REAL hungry one!

Arrived to island and on way to Ko'Olina resort needed to eat before grocery shopping in Kapolei. Saw there was a Korean BBQ with good TA reviews, so we thought we'd give it a try. Although not at all a traditional Korean BBQ like one thinks of in Korea with hibachi cookers in tables, etc., this smaller store front version... More

If I lived in the neighborhood I'd come here more often. Had the kalbi meat Jun combo and it was very tasty and so fresh. Problem is they give too much veggies....ha ha ha. Will definitely come back.

Hubs and I are tasty hung at aulani for a week and get a kick out of meandering around and finding small places to eat and we stumbled on this gem. Try the Kapolei special which has short ribs, thinly sliced marinated chicken batterd in egg, teriyaki bbq chicken and steak. Comes with four sides and rice. Had I known... More

Great place to get Korean BBQ, Everything is good. Here is a suggestion: Order two meals for a family of 4. The portions are way too big for each person to order one meal. Share!
