We've been to Kapolei many times but finally tried Kapolei Korean Barbecue last month. It's a casual place where you can get your meal to-go or eat-in. We had the bulgogi with rice, kimchi, noodles, spinach. Portions of rice and meats were very generous. There are a variety of sides. If you love Korean food or have never eaten Korean... More

We love Korean Barbecue and so we stopped in to pick up dinner on our way to KoOlina. It was a long day in North Shore and we were hungry! I was cold and felt like eating soup. The friendly gentleman behind the counter was very patient as I told him what I was hoping for. Yum! I enjoyed my... More

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.

This place does EXCELLENT Korean food and the service is also outstanding. I got the tofu/kimchee soup with seafood. I asked for spicy and got it!!! I was on... More
