“LOTS OF RESTAURANT GEMS IN HONOLULU”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

Traveling alone on business, didn't want a big fuss for dinner after my flight from Chicago. I had heard about a Japanese noodle bar nearby, and found about 50 people in line.

Headed back to the food court behind my Beachcomber hotel, and saw the biggest crowd near Yummy Korean. I've always been partial to Korean food, finding it less oily than Chinese.

Ordered a take-out with several different items, along with a choice of six different side dishes. Korean cuisine is big on the sides, so choose with care! And at least one will be kimchi, the spicy cabbage.

The BBQ'd meats were marinated, and all came out delicious. And the price (about $10) made the meal a real deal.

Experienced travellers know that Asian food courts, unlike their US shopping center counterparts, are the home of quality and economical meals. This is apparently true in Hawaii as well.

“Great Korean BBQ”

OMG, I have not tasted a great Korean BBQ food like this. Awesome with great price. There were lots of people in line that was why I chose to eat there. Highly recommended. You won't be disappointed.

“Amazing BBQ for very reasonable prices.”
Reviewed 2 July 2013 via mobile

I have been coming here for years and the quality of food has not changed at all. Very good and cheap BBQ- you won't spend more than $12-$15.00 and the servings are huge. At least 2 maybe 3 people could share. I always go for the spicy chicken which is awesome.

If you are looking for a great, quick and cheap meal you can't go past this place in the International market place.

“When in doubt”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

When surrounded by too many choices at food courts, go with Yummy! Though a chain, the food served is always dependable and affordable.

“Awesome value”
Reviewed 22 June 2013

Make sure you seek this place out in the International Food Court. The storefront doesn't look like much, but the meals are made to order and are huge with 4 choices of vegetables. My husband never likes to share, but was quite happy sharing one of these meals. Awesome value (especially in an expensive place like Waikiki) at around $13 a meal.

We ate here the first night and then came back every night after that.
