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 family style! Comfortable and inviting atmosphere is the norm. The wait help is local, so warm and helpful.

Living in Aiea you'll need to try their food it's addicting 😍 food is prepared per order wait time is 10-15 min. Always get thin slice Kalbi with the sides & hot sauce Lady is very nice friendly - nothing fancy table & chair. Good food - fast service 👍 Parking is crazy during lunch - call in your order...

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.

The owner is very friendly and helped us decide what to order. I ordered the chicken and beef. The chicken was awesome, the beef was very good too. My daughter had the fried rice and my husband had the spicy squid. Everything was great. If we have time, we will come back to this restaurant.

When I lived on Oahu, I ate here regularly. Now that I live far away, every time I fly back, I make sure to stop in for the Special (BBQ chicken, meat jun, and kalbi). Not the most convenient location, but that is the only draw back. The owner is always friendly and smiling and the food is consistently delicious... More

This is my favorite Korean restaurant. The food taste great. Always busy and long lines. The place is small and they tables are usually full. I always take out. I love their Kalbi and Meat Jun.
