Walk from the Ala Moana Center to this hole-in-the-wall restaurant that is packed with local people. I love their oyster jun, beef and mushroom stew, and soft tofu stew. These dishes are served with several side dishes of pickled vegetables and a bowl of steaming white rice. And the prices are great! Mmmmm!

Cho Dang has long been our favorite but lately the portions are smaller and the staff increasingly unfriendly. Ordered a meat jun, one of their specialties and it was one paper-thin slice of mystery meat between several layers of batter. One of the "side" vegetables now is pasta salad, which is inexpensive for them to make but not very Korean.... More

I love eating here, the food is delicious! I especially love the soft tofu soup. I prefer dining in rather than take out.

This a good place to get your Korean food fix. They are open late, cheap and the food is good. I've always like my Tteokbokki spicy.... This is one of those places that does it right! Nice and spicy! Their meat jun is pretty good as well... The place is small but with great friends and good food you will... More

This is in the old 808 Yong's location. Delicious soups with really good flavor. The restaurant itself is a bit dated but it's really quite homey and comfortable. I've tried the seafood pancake, one of the best I've ever eaten. Spicy pork is flavorful without the powdery texture you get at some places when they try to add more chili.... More

We were out running appointments today and didn't feel like having a long drawn out lunch or a fast food meal. We chose Chodang for the quick Korean meal. The portions are just right. I ordered the tofu and kim chee soup and my companion ordered the soonfubu with Bulgolgi (barbecue beef) plate. They don't skimp on the sides of... More

Just thinking about their food makes my mouth water. We discovered this tiny restaurant by accident. There is ample parking. It is located at the end of Ala Moana Shopping Center. We first went at noon and the place was "packed." The waitress forgot about us but the food was worth the wait. The second time we came around 10... More

I used to eat at this restaurant regularly with my family because of the relatively cheap prices, but my most recent experience at this restaurant guarantees that I will NOT be eating at this establishment again. After we ordered from the server, a few groups of people came in, including a family who had to wait a considerable amount of... More

If it's possible to give them one star, I would. But, that would leave me without the opportunity to share my groundbreaking experience with you. For fairness, I must preface this review with: Tonight is the end of a very long, hard week. I was less inclined to put up with crap as I usually do. I've been to Cho... More
