I got the special dinner for one, it was absolutely amazing and flavorful. The shrimp tempura was flakey shrimp were popping, and fresh tasting. The beef rib was super tender, seasoned perfectly. The fried ribeye was tender, juicy, and better than expected. The mac salad was surprisingly the best I've had, kind of a mixture of twice baked mashed potatoes... More

we ordered the combination plate and Chop Che. Combo plate was excellent, Chop Che is NOT like Korean Chop Che! Noodles were very hard to cut thru and the beef was iffy.

Really nice local place that gives you good portions at a great price. We call ahead for pickup because parking can be an issue during busy times. Well worth the stop, you won't be sorry.

This is a favorite of locals, if you know what to pick from the menu. Sometimes it is hit or miss, but here are some favorite tasty dishes that you can't go wrong with: the BBQ chicken, the Kalbi, and the fish jun. Otherwise, I would say you are on your own for other selections.Prices are reasonable, and they just... More

Casual family place with really good Korean barbecue! We liked it so much, we came twice for dinner. Second time, we got the family deal which was a lot of food for 2 adults and 3 children. Meat jun was really good.

We were tired and just wanted a tasty dinner. We hit the jackpot! This place was in the ultimate guide, but more importantly, it was close to the resort we were staying at. Don't let the resort make you think 'high prices'. No, just the opposite, this was one of the most reasonably priced meals we've had on the islands... More

We stopped here for a quick lunch and were pleasantly surprised by the flavorful, melt in your mouth BBQ beef we ordered. One of the best Korean BBQ meals we have ever eaten.

We go to Kauai every year and since we discovered Korean BBQ a few years ago it have become a mandatory stop each trip. This year the place had a new, clean look, someone has taken care and really improved the atmosphere. Food remains the best we can find anywhere.

This is a little place with a simple decor. We tried the fried dumplings and BBQ meat mixed plate. It was okay...not great, but we didn't regret trying it. We took our food to go as we were staying in a condo across the street.
