“Nice people and good”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

NOT fast, but exceedingly tasty. They make everything fresh and you can see them cooking it as well.

“Great Korean Food”
Reviewed 13 December 2013

Great Korean Food. One of the few good restaurants on Betio Island. The food tasted excellent. Bring your own beer, however.

“Good Bee Bim Bop”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

Restaurants have a difficult time getting all the ingredients in Tarawa as most everything has to be imported. Despite this challenge Japanese Curry House does a nice job on their Japanese and Korean food menu. Not having kimchee in stock was a bit disappointing but the Bee Bim Bop was tasty, nevertheless.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed 4 February 2013

If you are on Tarawa, this place is worth a visit. Very clean and tidy. Fair selection of Japanese and Korean dishes done well. I found it amazing that a plate of french fries and plate of super fresh "melt in the mouth " sushimi were the same price.

“Mostly Korean with some Japanese overtones”
Reviewed 4 October 2012

On a rating scale based on a big city scale, this would be a 'hole in the wall' basic two star place. In Betio, it is four stars. In a renovated house on the ocean side of Betio, it is clean, food is generally ok, though sometimes rather slow comping, and surprisingly (for Tarawa) most of the items on the menu seem to be available! The food is more Korean than Japanese and I didn't see any curry at all, but no matter, the food is pretty good and a respite from the ever present Chinese style food available at most other eating places in Kiribati. It is a bit far to walk from most Government offices and the commercial 'centre' of Betio but the public bus will get you there from anyplace on Betio in about 10 minutes or less for $0.60.
