My husband and I liked this place so much last time we were in Kona. So, we went back there on our first day back, but it was gone. They closed their business. Too bad...

We had been to Manna in 2009 on our first visit to Kona and absolutely loved the value for money you got there. Six years later we came again and it hadn't lost its spark. Out of the lower end eateries in Kona, this is definitely the gold standard. We ate our way through the menu and never had a... More

In the mall with Safeway. Put in your order, pay, and pick up a few groceries or a bottle of wine. When you get back, your order will be waiting. You get almost too much food. They give you 4 vegetables with each meal as well as lots of rice. Two meals will feed at least 3 people so if... More

After 10 days in kona I needed my Korean food fix. Went by manna and it did exactly that. I wasn't expecting a gourmet meal, I got the bibimbap, spicy chicken and galbi for the kids. My wife got the spicy tofu soup which she said was excellent. My meal was good and satisfied my fix.

A little hole in the wall fast food type Korean place we found because of Tripadvisor. We had low expectations going in, given the low key, low rent appearance of the place, but the food was delicious! The soup was SPICY and flavorful, and better then most of what we've had back home. The Kalbi short ribs and chicken were... More

Good tasty Korean food, not the best. The place is OK, with few tables if you want to stay and eat, but it is more a togo place where you select the food from stainless steel trays. Very reasonable priced for Hawaii.

Hoping to find a cheep and good lunch I've entered that place. Apparently the girl at the counter would have preferred to be anywhere els than working. At least thats the way she behaved. The whole place looked dirty and unfriendly like nobody does care for it at all. But the worst thing was a little curtain where the food... More

We were hungry and wanted to get something to eat before going shopping in the nearby Safeway. I've enjoyed Korean BBQ before (especially bulgogi) so we thought I'd give this place a try. Inside it looks like an old-style Chinese restaurant, with faded pictures of meals on the wall, and well-worn tables and chairs for customers to dine at. As... More

The place is the best family-run Korean destination in town. Great food, big portions, and all at a price that won't pinch you wallet. Perfect place for lunch...make sure you ask for the spicey pork.
