Decided to try this place while walking around shopping. Food was pretty good considering it is fast food. The prices weren't bad. Good place to get something while waiting for others.

They have all the fixings for Korean BBQ... L-O-V-E their potstickers. It's a must try! They are centrally located right in the Royal Hawaiian shopping center food court (I'm sure in other places as well).

I had the Spicy Pork with kimchi and potatoes. It was so much better than I had expected. Everything was fresh and well seasoned!

Not sure about their Korean food, but what I ordered was definitely excellent. I had the Teri chicken with rice and mac salad and it was good and definitely a lot.
