Fantastic food, good location and cheap. Most plates are in the $7-13 range, lots of food. They do have some table but this is mainly a take out place.

Right from the start I must say that Soonʻs Kalbi Restaurant is a take-out style of eatery; although they have some benches outside of their take-out window for people to enjoy their food. Soon’s has been around awhile and it was and still is my...More

You can't come too Oahu without eating at Soons! I've eaten here numerous times with the first being in 1999. Brought my wife to the island for her first visit. I took her to Soons the lady night she was here and she was blown...More
