We came to Kauai from Washington state and being Korean, when we found a Korean restaurant, were excited to eat some "homestyle" food. Unfortunately, we didn't eat much of the food as it was not well prepared at all. We had bimbimbap and the gochujang...More

We are always looking great Korean food after living in Korea for 2 years. This place fits the bill. Especially like the BBQ Beef or Pork! I ask for mine to be a little spicy and it comes exactly that way! Not great atmosphere but...More

Not bad, had the Zucchini Katsu. Came with a nice spicy dipping sauce. Not bad for a quick dining while in the mall! Big portions!

Food was OK. Slow service. Server/owner had no personality or Aloha. Did not make us feel very welcome

Korean BBQ in Kukui Grove. The service was indifferent and very slow. The food took along time to come and after bringing the food, the waitress never returned. The Meat jun was greasy, the kalbi rib was not the cut of beef that I have...More

Don't get me wrong, the food is pretty good. However, not as good as the ones in Los Angeles, Chicago or New York. One complaint that I have is their Kimchi. It's not spicy enough. Not too many koreans from Korea or mainland would like...More
