Authentic popular korean food! Very friendly service even if they are very busy. They don't speak much english but you have the pictures to guide you in your choice. Go early or late!

Pretty good food, portions are large. Their servers don't speak much English though, so best to not ask too many questions about the menu.

Visited there around 7:30PM on August 29th. We were immediately seated. We tried the mixed rice with veges in hot pot and beef brisket (came with kimchi, mongo sprouts, potatoes, broccoli and some noodles). Food came by fast and they tasted good. Staff were friendly but they were obviously busy. We looked around and the restaurant was suddenly full. I... More

We had the Mikawon special for two and it was very good. The miso stew was great and the chilli raw crab was excellent. All the pickled side dishes could be refilled as required but there was plenty anyway. The bbq steak was a bit chewy but the fish was delicious. It all came together and was quickly served.

Some of the best Korean food I have eaten any where. I go to Korea often and this is top notch. The kimchi and sides are great. We had the beef tounge, brisket, and sirloin and it was excellent.

Best Korean food I've had. A bit pricey but you get what you pay for - excellent taste and generous portions.

A Korean restaurant full of Koreans is always a good sign. The place is simple but the menu has lots of options of great eats at a good price. We started with some very good fried mandoos that my kids love. We shared some bbq short ribs and fried rice and one of my sons had some spicy ramen. Everything... More

We stumbled into this hole in the wall because the Korean place we had come for was too crowded. We were so grateful to find it! Such wonderful food with hearty portions! Exactly what we needed after a long day of travel.

We went for lunch and was amazed that we were one of the few tables. We ordered many favorites. So generous with the Kimchi refill. I also got my buckwheat tea. Very tasty, decent price for Waikiki.

Very tourist-i-centric. Walls plastered with 8-1/2x11 sheets of paper singing accolades to them from past diners. Guess it gives them and "new" diners validation for the making the right choice to dine there. Didn't seem too busy but staff running back and forth, almost chaotically. Which lead to my only mark here. It irks me when all dishes come out... More
