    Food was very good. Would have preferred serving the mandoo without the fried disk on top. Service was great - no corkage fee and the waiter brought us wine glasses before I got to ask. Pork Belly and the Karrage chicken were delish,

    Food was tasty but i expected better menu selection…. Sat in side room which was kind of dreary. Then i saw outdoor seating area that was preferred seating area. Would not go back or recommend due to food pricing and ambiance, overall cleanliness

    I love this place, kind of a hole in the wall, with a back patio; they also do a lot of take-out. The folks who run the place are always so kind, the food is delicious, unique, the kind of fusion that can take place in Honolulu. This is not a fancy place…but the food rates highly

    The food was amazing, super friendly staff, excellent service and they gave us a complementary cheesecake for our friend’s birthday. We sat outside in the cute courtyard. It was the perfect spot for a ladies gathering.

    The food is amazing! We tried a couple apps and the November specials and we were not disappointed. It was a busy Saturday night and unfortunately we weren’t able to be seated in back, which made it feel busier with the hustle and bustle of take out orders and people checking in for their reservation. But it made for good people watching. We felt bad because we had to rush out at the end to make our show at the Hawaii theatre but everyone was so gracious and the food was amazing! The drinks, the apps, the entrees were so good and the elote ice cream tied it all together at the end. We will be dreaming of the crispiest rice from our stone bibimbap until we make it back there! Mahalo!

    I love this place. This was our first visit and what a wonderful surprise. We sat in the outdoor area in the back. Ambience nice and cozy and the food was superb. I had the seaweed salmon and side order of miso eggplant. My husband had the bibimbap with spicy chicken.

    Sorry but, the construction and visible rubbish and noisy radio and long wait took away from the overall experience. Possibly short staffed. Our servers did did their best but in the end I wish I would have chosen a different spot for a first date. Food was tasty.

    We did a 6:15 pm reservation on a Saturday night. Got there on time and got a nice table for four in the back. We were a couple, and shared an appetizer of Truffle Mandoo filled with mushrooms, excellent! Both of our entrees came with green salads...we liked the one with the lemon dressing the best. We enjoyed Mahimahi Seafood Chowder with potatoes and gnocchi, and Miso Pork Belly with Purple rice. Both entrees were excellent! The lemon ice tee with unlimited free refills was flavorful and refreshing! We were too full for dessert, but the offerings sounded good! Service was friendly and timely, and we were able to finish in time to make a 7:30 pm show featuring ghost stories by Jeff Gere across the street!

    The food is always good here. Fresh and amazing ingredients. The over $30-price for the meat jun plate was a little crazy, and we had a hair in one of our dishes, so that was gross. I hate being one to complain and OʻKims is a really good spot, but there is no excuse for hair in my food. Keep things clean in your kitchen, please.

    Wow. Just wow. The food was so artfully prepared, attention to little details, and so delicious!!! Best Kimchee I have ever had. And the Meat Jun special this month (made with Wagyu beef), super ono! Small little place. Close to the Hawaii Theater. Street parking. The chef owner is AMAZING! Can’t wait to return to Honolulu.

    This was a quick stop before a UH game, and it was the perfect place to grab a bite. The food was outstanding, and we were seated on the back patio that has plants and gardens. Such a nice respite from busy Chinatown. Parking was street, but free after 6PM and no problem finding a spot, even on a busy Friday night. I will be back! The Pork Jowel was mouth-watering! Potato pancake was a great monthly special/appetizer. Very unique.

    I am an attorney and I made reservations for 11:45 a.m. for lunch with a colleague. We both have busy schedules and needed to be finished with our meal before 1:00 p.m., which seemed like enough time to get our food, eat, and leave. As such, I purposely made reservations for 11:45 a.m. Notwithstanding this, we did not even receive our food until 12:50 p.m. The entire time, we saw other tables being sat after us but served ahead of us. I mentioned this to our waiter, who gave me the excuse that the restaurant had to accommodate a few takeout orders. Prioritizing takeout orders ahead of serving customers who actually took the time to come into the restaurant is utterly baffling to me. Despite this, we were offered no apologies, comps, or anything. Overall, it was a terrible dining experience. Especially with the wild chickens running by our feet and eating off the dirty dishes on the other tables.
