There are TONS of Korean places here on the islands. But it is the somewhat sweet tasting sauce that makes this place unique from all the rest. Even the kim chee is different and good !

A family group of us dined here. We all love Korean BBQ so the five of us had five different dishes. I enjoyed the Meat Chun & Kalbi combination. My wife had Bibin Kooksoo. We both enjoyed our dinner. For me Young's has one of the best Meat Chuns on the island and the Kalbi is also one of my... More

Definitely go. GREAT Kalbi and meat jun. Definitely a bit of a dive - so not the place to take someone on a first date - unless they're all about the food - in which case you might just want to go ahead and marry them - LOL. This place can get super busy and don't even try to find... More

Pretty good small korean restaurant. I only go here if I want Big Bone Kalbi. The marinate is very good. The sides are so-so.

This is a small local Korean restaurant. Food is tasty and plentiful. Their meat jun is a favorite for our family though their other dishes are also great.

New format of ordering at the desk then sitting at the table for your meal to be served to you is very efficient. The spicy pork is so-o-o ono! Juice. Just spicy enough to smack your lips. Love the turnip namul served at the table. Remember to order and be seated by 745 pm or it's take out only.

Newly renovated...food still the same. I pretty much only come here for lunch. My go to order is the chicken katsu meat jun combo. Kinda expensive but I love their sauce and the way they marinate their meat..it's on the sweeter side but it works for me. Best meat jun I've ever had

I have never eaten at Youngs. I did have take out once a few years ago. We ordered the meat jun, mandoo, and one other meal and shared with 2 adults and 2 children. There were lots of left overs. The sides were onolicious.
