We came here while on vacation and were surprised at the food! My husband had the beef bulgogi which was very good, but my plate (spicy sizzling pork) was absolutely to die for. It was quite spicy but well worth it! All of the accompanying vegetable dishes and the rice were equally delicious. All in all I wish I could... More

Willow Tree is our very favorite Korean restaurant on Oahu. Most often we go for dinner, but the lunch menu is similar. My two favorite dishes are spicy chicken katsu and sizzling pork. On this visit I went with the spicy chicken katsu. When I want a real feedbag I'll order a combo plate with Korean bbq beef, bbq chicken,... More

Not the fanciest place - it's in a strip mall, the decor's a bit old fashioned and the chairs all have castors on them (weird), but the food is great: incredibly good value, authentic home-style dishes and tasty. Very popular for takeout too: it was recommended by our B&B hosts and they were not wrong. Portions are very generous and... More

Ambiance is clean and dated. Service is excellent and welcoming and food is high quality and delicious. Party of 6 had to split into 2 tables as they cannot accommodate parties over 5 due to their booth setup. We had a good time at lunch and all ordered variations of their combo lunches featuring 3 different choices. The Kalbi is... More

I'd say this is one of my favorite place in oahu. Our visit here has always been pleasant though we had to wait for over an hour the second time. My favorite is the bbq chicken. I had tempura on my first visit. Good customer service and of course good food, the price is also decent so I'm giving it... More

So much food and soooo good! I would eat there every day but then I'd have to go to the gym the portions are so large. I've never ordered the same thing and have never been disappointed.

Willow Tree is our go to restaurant. We love the banchan that comes with dinner. The pickled vegetables are my favorite, my daughter loves the potato. The turnip soup is addicting! Our favorites include spicy chicken katsu and spicy pork. The owners and staff are always friendly and helpful. I highly recommend trying their food if you haven't!

Wonderful little Korean fusion restaurant tucked away in a shopping center. Loved their Kalbi ribs. We ate here several times during our stay. Lunch is the best bargain for your dollar.
