“Awesome family style asian dining!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

Had the pleasure of dining here on a short trip to Waikiki. It's a short 10 min drive from the beach (there's also a closer second location which in actually on the strip). Had the pork chops, kimchee yakisoba, garlic edamame, and the kalbi short ribs. Loved everything! The prices are very reasonable, portions are huge, and the staff was very friendly. Basically...a no-brainer. GO TRY IT!!

“try the korean ribs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

You need gps on your smart phone to find this place but we walked there. It is on the northwest side of ala moana mall... on a side street called Hopaka (1255) and it definitely is an alleyway. We went there 2 times.
the ceasar salad was great. You order family style so it comes out in one bowl and you serve yourself. You get for utensils either chopsticks or one fork. No knife or spoon. The calamari was fried strips.. not circles. Fantastic. Tender. The korean ribs were boneless and very tasty. Also fatty. Mygallbladder hated me but my mouth was happy. We also had the teriyaki chicken. The sauce was sweet. The chicken used was from the thigh with the bone taken out. It was not white meat. The pork ribs were good too but the bbq sauce had a citrus tang that was weird to me. Good meaty ribs.
overall a great place to eat. Real food for real people. Lots of tv sports to watch.

“never again-very disappointed and embarrassed to have brought friends”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

Filthy. Should be closed by the Board of Health. Tables were so dirty that I stuck to the table. Food had so much fat it could not be eaten. Fried rice was like glue.

“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

When I was visiting my home in Honolulu, I ate here 6 times in 2 weeks. The food is fantastic--very local, very well prepared. The staff is very attentive and pleasant. A great place to go with family, friends, or solo.
