Haven't been here in almost 3 years as the meat selections have decreased a bit but not a problem. I recall having some sashimi too back then. But the marinated Kal bi is really good and nice to have chicken to also grill with spicy meats too. They had some already made fried chicken and orange chicken as well as... More

Food is not fresh. My husband and I both got diarrhea after the dinner. Besides, I would say it's pretty pricey for the low quality food. More than $100 for three of us including a 9 year old girl. They said they charge adult price for kids over 8. We could have a fine dinning in a much nicer Japanese... More

Buffet style Korean BBQ located along McCully Street. We came here for Christmas dinner as everywhere was booked out and was pleasantly surprised given it was only USD28 per person for all You Can Eat Korean BBQ. Beats other places with the ala carte buffet as you can help yourself and the quality is very decent for the price. The... More

You have a number of people in your party that "eat like proverbial horses" and those $8.95 plate lunches are starting to add up....how about a cook your own all you can eat local place? Cannot stand that your meat was under or over cooked or that the portion is way too small for that large price or that you... More

We loved this family run joint. The meat quality was very high. Not too much fat.Having just been in Seoul. .....they would compare favorably. Be sure to check Sunday newspaper for a $4 off (per person) discount

The all-you-can-eat buffet is rather pricey for a lunch meal. They did have meats one can barbecue. The lunch atmosphere can be relatively quiet, so it’s a good place for a business lunch.

Make sure you wear a T-shirt that you will not be wearing the next day. There are vacuum ventilation on the ceiling but not enough. Service is not so good just like any other asian buffet. For the price you pay, there are enough variety, for being in Honolulu.

I'll get the good out of the way first. This place is a nice family-run (I think) business. I arrived here right before the lunch window finished (I wanted to get the lunch price, so rushed over after work). The staff is very friendly and attentive. Moreover, the raw meats are pretty fresh and good, as is the Korean Sweet... More

We have always loved Camellia Buffet. It was even our spot for our Wedding rehearsal dinner, that's how much we Love it. It is a buffet but all the marinated beef, chicken, spicy pork (my favorite) are all raw, once you have your meat on one dish get another and turn around to the biggest selection of Kim Chee vegetables...
