I traveled Oahu alone and wanted to have dinner at Camellia on 19 May 2013, because one of my korean friends told me their food was nice for try.
I made a call to ask if I needed to make a reservation for myself. The male staff who answered my call said it was okay to come without booking because it was only for one person. I walked to the restaurant from my hotel on beach walk. At the restaurant, the female staff told very unkindly she couldn't give me a table because they were busy and not able to make a table for only one person. I told her if the male staff did tell me the same, I wouldn't have come. She did not care. However, the male staff felt sorry for me and asked me to wait. Thus, I waited for about 40minutes. in the meantime, they kept passing other groups into the restaurant. I was upset. They finally told me to come back by 8pm. (I arrived there at 6:15pm)
I have never had any issue in any restaurant in Hawaii to find a table for me until then.
It was terrible service and as a korean myself this is not acceptable.
I did not visit them again at 8pm because their service and manners already had told me enough lessons.
Terrible restaurant ever. Highly unrecommended.
