We were staying at the resort and decided to try Korean food for the first time. Very reasonably priced plus an automatic discount for resort guests. Really enjoyed the food but were surprised by the amount especially when the side dishes seemed to just keep...More

It’s clear that this restaurant caters primarily to a Korean clientele. Don’t let his put you off...they were very hospitable to my family, seating us even without a reservation (though they told us the restaurant would be full shortly). There’s no ambience. Zero. No views...More

This place was a pleasant surprise. It's tucked away on the 2nd floor of the Waikiki Resort Hotel in the middle of Waikiki. The food was amazing. The side dishes were plentiful, fresh, and tasty. I found the prices to be quite reasonable, particularly for...More

We stayed at the resort so opted to eat in on our first night - not that we do that when we travel. The thought of Korean cuisine was the attraction. You will be asked whether you would prefer a BBQ room or other cuisine...More

The food is wonderful. Delicious authentic Korean food. Limited wines available but plenty of beers. The restaurant decor is dated much like the Hotel and there is very little atmosphere, but that's easy to get over, just enjoy the food. Apparently the sound system (music)...More

We stayed in a hotel across the street and had no idea this restaurant was there. It is on the second floor of the Waikiki Resort and not visible from the street. We were a group of five, some of whom had never eaten Korean...More

The restaurant is big and while the decor may be a bit tired the food is excellent value and the wines aren't too expensive. Service is prompt helpful and friendly. We had dumplings for entree with a range of side dishes - pickles, greens, sprouts,...More

We've been here several times and it's never been bad. The noodles and ban chan are good, the yakinuku is surprisingly balanced and tasty. Not so hot is the sundubu-jigae, which lacks flavor and heft, as if it was just pieced together without a good...More

Friendly service at this obviously popular restaurant. Good range of beers, spirits and wines. The menu has good descriptions because our exposure to Korean cuisine is limited. Very tasty side dishes, extremely tasty main dishes and when we could eat no more we were served...More

The food was very average. The server was cold, not pleasant at all. The place is very unwelcoming. There are many other restaurants in Waikiki that are better. Would not return again.More
