We ate at Korean Bar-B-Q on Christmas Day. I had the BBQ chicken and Tempura shrimp. Both were very good. The service was very good. I will eat there again on my next trip.

Authentic Korean food. Served fresh and quick. Ordered the family combo plate for three was enough for 5.

Food here is fantastic, but it is a cheapo...at least it used to be since after renovation (place look very nice now) but I believe rates are up as well. Still anything you take is very good. My favor squid with veggies, BBQ Pork and of course Kalbi/Karbi but last one is a bit pricey where the other two are... More

Everything we ordered was excellent. I would be back here next trip for sure, but probably only one night as we had a massive bill. The short rib is delicious but not much in an order given the price. Fried chicken was great. Katsu was great. Tempura was solid.

I had kalbi beef with chicken katsu and my wife had tempura. Both were tasty with good amount of sides all for 35 bucks. It is a small place and it was very busy with many locals in the place. I would definitely come here next time we are in Kauai

I'd never have noticed this very modest little joint on my own: a local friend took us here. The furnishings are very simple and more than a bit worn, but scrupulously clean and the service was friendly and prompt. I am no expert on Korean cuisine, but the food was plentiful and delicious and the dinner we had here remains... More

Got the Kalbi (thick cut) with BBQ beef, pork and chicken. You can ask for spicy sauce to add yourself. All were yummy!

The place is a bit of a dive on the inside, and knowing that we got take out. The food was delicious. Their BBQ beef short ribs, which we all got, were flavorful and perfectly cooked. Portions are generous.

I have read the many reviews of this place and I have to say to the poor reviewers... lighten up. The building is very old for one, and the businesses are limited to what they can control. It may look "dirty" inside, but I assure you that it is cleaned and bleached daily. Korean BBQ does not control the restroom,... More

We wanted to eat here more than just the one time, but they were closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays while we were there so we weren't able to get back there, but I recommend it. We had a plate of meat and chicken with macaroni salad and something else (can't remember) and it was all very good. It's close to... More
