“This is THE place for Korean food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012 via mobile

This is a hole in the wall gem. The place is not fancy or even modern but if you like Korean food, you MUST go here. This is seriously my favorite food in Honolulu. PERIOD! I guarantee anything you try will be good, fresh and delicious. Even the complimentary side dishes are well prepared and just plain good. Beer is cheap too! Always a good dining experience. Try the meat jun, fish jun, kalbi or bbq chicken. It will leave you full and happy.

“What a one-in-a-"million" find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

We were checking out Yelp of Korean eateries while vacationing in Honolulu and came across this gem off the beaten track (just northwest of the Ala Moana Shopping Center, on a side street). Yummmm! Great value and scrumptious food. Not fancy...downright plain...but it's the food that excel! The pictures tell the whole story. I had the kalbi and chicken bulgogi combination BBQ lunch plate, while my wife ordered the kalbi dolsot bi bim bap (she loves the crispy rice from the clay pot). Best kalbi I've had, and we've been to numerous Korean restaurants in the SF Bay Area and Honolulu. The side dishes were good too, as well as the "oversized" gyozas we ordered. They were so good that we ate 2 before I had a chance to snap a picture of them. Their cook-it-yourself BBQ is probably good too...something we might try the next time in the islands. Lots of other stuff on their menu also worth trying.

“No frills atmosphere - great Korean food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2011

Great for those who appreciate good Korean food & don't care what the outside of the building looks like. Went with people who know Korean food & they loved it (I'm no expert). You get a lot of food for the money - an excellent value!

“You'll love the food so much that you'll be planning your next meal here before you finish your first”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2011

If you come to Honolulu on vacation (or you live here), you have to eat at least one meal here. If you eat one meal, most likely you'll be back the next night. It's that good.
The atmosphere is Korean divey - it's located on a side street behind Walmart, but don't let that deter you, the food is really good and itls very inexpensive.
Things to try for Korean food forst-timers: Any of the stone pot rice dishes (watch out the bowl is stone and really hot), Any of the Jun dishes are good (fried meat dish), and if you like cooking at the table (yakiniku style) try the bulgogi. The waitresses are friendly and helpful, if need a suggestion.
For the adventurous, try some Korean Soju (similar to sake), or some rice wine (it's a milky wine).
Enjoy, save money, maybe even stop at Walmart for some cheap souvenirs, you'll love this and could easily eat here every night.
