Located mid-block in what is now known as the epicenter of the emerging Korean district near Keeaumoku Street, this restaurant holds court as one of the first Korean establishments in the area. The upscale and inviting yakiniku restaurant is popular with area residents and islanders who enjoy spending an evening with friends over a hot grill. All the popular Korean favorites are offered, including marinated beef, pork belly and of course a myriad of kim chee, and dipping sauces. It's a good place to introduce friends to authentic Korean food before taking them to that favorite hole in the wall for bi bim bap.
