The food was Soo fresh and delicious 👌. Every single side dish was prepared to perfection,the tofu and fish cake,Kim chi,sprouts,boiled potatoes were to die for. We ordered alittle bit of everything and to feed 4 people were amazed at how cheap dinner was. I hope to go back again some time,the staff was delightful and attentive...she answered every single one of my questions. Five star experience:)

Said we couldn’t get the all you can eat because it would take to long. Kept rushing us to order but said we couldn’t stay long. So we got up and went down the street for tacos. much better option!

The staff was friendly and helpful and explained the menus to us. Food came tasting great - everyone had a wonderful experience. Would definitely come back next time we're in Waikiki.

The food was great for a family roaming from out of town. The service was fine as I think the lady who took our order didn’t understand English very well. She ran off before we could give her our drink order, which we waved down another person and got it sorted out. Would recommend for a casual dinner.

We ordered a few dishes off of the regular menu including the Beef and Rib special, that was excellent. Seoul Jung is a little pricey even by Honolulu standards but the food is quite excellent.

It felt more upscale then the other korean restaurants, well it is at the Waikiki resort hotel so this place is within reach for tourists. They do offer free parking after validation. The hostess and waitresses were very nice. The place felt pretty big, there are two sides for grills for korean style bbq or just regular tables for non grilling foods. accommodating for big parties. The restaurant was clean. The food was really good, we got the all you can eat $40 each person. We also got an order if Kim Chee with pork, forgot the name of the order and 2 bottles of #Hite beer. There are also different set menus for grilling at the table and a $30 set menu but we want for the #AYCE / / Starters you get seaweed soup, then a seafood pancake, and of course the #banchan. For main course you get tongue, brisket, and kalbi. I was lucky n got a big bone kalbi lol. I really liked that they flavored the tongue with a sauce with garlic and a splash of lemon, it tasted a lot better and also the kalbi too. We had two rounds of meat but you can keep going until you can’t any more so they’ll keep bringing out the soup, pancake and the trio. Oh and also they have #beanpaste and #gochujang sauce which is a plus for me! I’d like to come again with the guys next to see how far we can go hehe. I’d recommend it if you are looking for pleasant night in Waikiki and for some never ending kbbq! Was so good! #brisket #tongue #kalbi #koreanbbq #bbq #seouljung #seouljungrestaurant

Although the ambiance is better now, the food has gone down. There is hardly any value to what you pay for. For the same price, I would have been more sated at Yu-Chun on Kapiolani Blvd. The food is not very flavorful, and the menu rather limited. I will not be returning.

We appreciate you remembering us after all these years. I'm glad you enjoyed the ambiance, but I'm disappointed that the flavor was not to your liking. Our dishes, and in particular the chef's specials, usually receive high marks from reviewers. I wish we would have known about this at the time because we would've loved to prepare something special just for you. I hope you give us another shot!

We didn't get one dish that we ordered and after much contemplating with the staff they took it off the bill. Want to go back and try their yakiniku. Their english speaking if very limited so be prepared for that.

Had the galbi gim (sp?) Which came in a stone pot and was boiling still. Yikes. I've been here a few times now and so far have not been disappointed. I've been pretty disappointed with Korean food in Hawaii but I'm glad to say this place was very pleasantly surprising. The spicy butterfish has just the right amount of spicy sweetness. Galbi is so soft. Will continue to dine here when I can. Prices do seem a bit higher, but it's Waikiki and the food and portions are worth it for me. Any time we needed anything the servers were quick with getting what we needed. Our waters kept getting topped off even before they were half empty. I really liked the tea they give as well. I mix it with the cold water to make it lukewarm. Seaweed soup has bits of meat in it instead of the clams or mussels - a taste I way more prefer. Also, they validate for 3 hours! Worth it in my opinion.
