We went there under korean friends advice. I have to say that I was quite disappointed. Not because it was bad, but I was expecting some big specially for the price. The minimum for the korean bbq is 20$ for the chicken. We ordered the kalbi and the inner ribs. The kalbi was basic (but tender) slices of beef not... More

Went there last night for dinner. The food was tasty, service good. There were 5 of us and we chose to have a family style dinner. It included kalbi, meat jun, barbecue chicken, and seafood pancake with rice, soup and many side dishes. Reservations are recommended. Parking is available, but can be difficult. We lucked out and found street parking.

No! but unlike Young's Kalbee this restaurant serves patrons 24 hours in the heart of strip club row. Saying that, be forewarned of the lively possibly enibriated crowd between 2-4am I know of only ONE murder incident occurring in the parking lot. Sharing a small parking lot with a few other businesses, they offer valet parking, reservations and a private... More

Our friends, long-time residents of Hawaii know food in Honolulu, and if they wanted to eat at this very old Korean restaurant, we were happy to tag along. It's open 24 hours a day, and I think you can see and maybe even meet all kinds of Honolulu characters there depending on when you go. They have valet parking, which... More

Really good Korean food and the service is always very good. The menu is extensive and there's always something that you want to eat there. I love their solang tang and their bigi chige.

Sorobal is well known Korean Restaurant that has great food with very good service. The yakinuku (barbeque) menu features tasty kalbi , Waitress was great, in explaining the dishes and checked whether refill of side dishes was needed. Made dining experience better. Lots of "free side dishes" which comes with Korean meals, very tasty.

A local recommended this restaurant as an alternative to the tourist draws along the Waikiki strip where we were staying. It totally exceeded out expectations. Wife is a big fan of 'try a little bit of everything' style of eating, so all of the pickled sides that came with the meal were right up her alley. We shared a pork... More

Decided on Korean food for date night, but didn't want "all-you-can-eat" so we chose Sorabol based on friend's recommendation. Went on a Saturday evening around 6:30 and the adjacent parking lot had a valet ($3), so we tossed him the keys and headed inside. With all the cars we thought we would have to wait, but they had a table... More

Had dinner with family (party of 3) on a weekday night. Food and service was fine. We were visiting from Korea so it was good to experience authentic Korean food in Honolulu.
