The place is a little grungy place, but we went in when we first arrived to Kailua because other places were full. We were surprised how fast the food came out for a group of 20. Thank you Ohana for feeding hungry kids in a hurry.

There is nothing fancy about this restaurant but the food was really good! Both my wife and my teenager enjoyed the food as much as I did! The prices were good and the service fast.

One of the only good, quick Korean food places in Kailua. Food is consistently good but the decor needs work, and cleaning. If you are doing take out, it's fine, but if you want to eat in, try to face the wall. Very nice lady serving at the counter.

We were ignored when we walked in, then menus were dropped on our table. The TV was blaring out an inappropriate show for all-age public viewing. I asked for the channel to be changed and it promptly got changed. The menu had many selections. We were happy with what we chose, although it could have been more tender with the... More

The Ohana BBQ is a Korean hole-in-the-wall place that serves delicious plate lunches. It's located in a tiny shopping strip and off the main road. We found it simply as we drove around the area. The inside is basic with tables and booths. Nothing fancy but you come here for the food. We first started out with a miso type... More

Out of all the local korean restaurants I've been, by far the most tasty. Huge variety for everyone to choose. Good homemade mandoo. Will go back!

Owner uses recycled cooking oil, for instance chicken katsu, flouring is dark brown. as apposed to golden brown. So please heed my warning or enjoy. Beside this, he is very unsanitized.
