I've gotten meat and fish jun here, both good. I think the cucumber kimchi is outstanding although my Korean friend tells me the reason the cukes are so fresh and crisp is that they're not fermented for very long. Cabbage - not so great. Macaroni salad is tasty. It's all served in take-out containers whether you dine in or not.

4 of us ate 4 different plates and got to try each others. Wow. Really good and lots of food. Left overs for tomorrow's lunch for us all. Next days lunch was just as good. Going back.

We wanted something a little different and away from the resort. I personally love Korean BBQ but most of my family had never had it before, so it was a bit of an adventure. First thing you should note is that this is in the Kapolei Shopping Center near the Safeway, the GPS took us to Wet N Wild. The... More

We ate here yesterday for lunch and found the food to be great! Service was prompt and the portions were large. Also, the price was very reasonable for what you get!

We've been to Kapolei many times but finally tried Kapolei Korean Barbecue last month. It's a casual place where you can get your meal to-go or eat-in. We had the bulgogi with rice, kimchi, noodles, spinach. Portions of rice and meats were very generous. There are a variety of sides. If you love Korean food or have never eaten Korean... More

We love Korean Barbecue and so we stopped in to pick up dinner on our way to KoOlina. It was a long day in North Shore and we were hungry! I was cold and felt like eating soup. The friendly gentleman behind the counter was very patient as I told him what I was hoping for. Yum! I enjoyed my... More

Good Korean Food. Service is fine. Large seating area. Out of the few Korean food places in Kapolei, this is the norm we go to.

This place features a standard array of "side dishes" along with a variety of Korean BBQ and some Korean soups--you better like spicy! In this same shopping center. Owner "Kimo" is friendly and a good guy to just "talk-story" with. We suggest the "Kapolei BBQ Special" plate. Good for two diners--or one REAL hungry one!
