“go there!”
Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

good food, friendly service and reasonably priced. We had the bbq combination plate and the steamed mandoon which are dumplings filled with beef abd veggies. Both dishes and espacially the free additions (see weed soup, kim chee and salads) were very good.

“Go where the locals are”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

The service alone made this worth the experience. What a bunch of sweet women. Attentive, polite and they care about their customers. And the food, pretty damn good. I loved the seaweed soup starter and Bim Bam Bop. Also, the dinner special was great. I'm not usually into fried foods, but the shrimp and meat were all so tasty!

We ate here at least four times in the two week stay. Also, the prices are quite reasonable and good portions.

The locals eat here, should be a great sign. No frills, not a dress up event but those ribs are just amazing! Word to those with seafood allergies, they were a bit unsure of some of the ingredients and relationship to shell fish so caution - one of our group had a bit of a reaction when no shellfish was supposed to be included. Would go back in a heart beat though!

“Excellent food and friendly service!”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

We just spent a week on Kauai & ate at this restaurant 3 times. Excellent food, bbq pork was my favorite. The same lady waited on us all 3 times, she was very friendly. I recommend giving this place a try!

“Loved it!”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

I have lived in Korea and visit Korean food everywhere I go. On this trip we took 6 friends who had never had Korean food and were nervous.

We all loved it and would return. The food is modified a little b/c it's Hawaii and they are appealing to a broader audience of American and Japanese. However, it was great. I got the lunch special for dinner and most of my friends ordered the dinner special. Everyone loved it and it was very reasonable.

Only complain is no dukpoggi and no stone bowl (have to have my bibimbap in a stone bowl!). Kalbi, Bulkogi, Munjun, were all GREAT!

Everyone also loved their potato/macaroni salad. A little bit different side, but great.

In short, not your traditional korean restaurant, but yummy food and the owner was nice and service was fast. The place was packed! If you like asian food at all, try it!!!!
