Evidently its called the new shillawon restaurant, but old shillawon had better tasting dishes. Service was OK, but menu items were relatively small, with Korean side dishes relatively small (one serving given for 3 diners) Had BBQ chicken plate for lunch, just OK, nothing special.

Great food! Very spacious, comfortable, and has great sides! You have 2 AYCE options, Hotpot and Yakiniku. Hotpot was good, very limited tho. 1 type of meat "can't remember", vegetables "chinese cabbage, and a couple of other greens" and tofu. I was able to only refill on meat and tofu w/o getting more greens, which was awesome! comes with one... More

Some friends from Korea recently took me to lunch at the "New" Shillawon Korean restaurant. The management has changed and I had the feedback from my friends to see if this long standing place still has its prominence. I ordered the tofu soup combo which came with broiled corvina and traditional vegetarian rice. The banchan (side dishes) were presented first.... More

Went as a guest in a party of ten. Good menu, food and service. Had some noodle/vegetable/meat thingy - cooked at our table (my wife and I shared). Delicious. Great Korean spice taste (order "mild" unless you're experienced). Kim chee was delicious, as were all the side dishes served with the main dish. It was a Wednesday and it was... More

They shut down their business for good. Don't know why, but went there with my friends for the yakiniku and shoyu crab and seafood champon. Bad service was an always issue at this place. Hope new owner do better. Good luck..

I visit Hawaii every year, and like trying out new restaurants (in between all my favorites). I saw this restaurant's ad in a korean flier : $10.99 for Lunch Buffet, starting 8/21/2012 with over 40 items including Tang-Soo-Yook (my husband's favorite), and Pork Bul-go-gi (my favorite), etc. So, we (along with my nephew) went there with eager anticipation.

This was my favorite meal of my trip. We stayed with friends when visiting (hawaiian locals) and this is their favorite place to eat when they want to eat a LOT! Basically it is an all you can eat, grill your own food type of place. They bring you raw meat (chicken, kalbi beef, rib eye steak, cow tongue, teryaki... More
