Yakiniku restaurants seem to have blown up in the last few years, becoming the latest trend in Hawaii practically overnight. New yakiniku venues have popped up all over the island, giving diners plenty to choose from.

Bouan Fujieki, Elliot Kim and Bradley Shigezawa say that they have found the best of the bunch at McCully eatery Camellia Buffet. They dined there recently for the all-you-can-eat buffet (lunch $15.95; dinner $22.95), and say that this incredible deal has drawn them in again and again.

Bouan Fujieki: “We usually get mostly kalbi and beef.”

Bradley Shigezawa: “They pretty much have everything at the buffet bar. They have vegetables, too. We got kimchi; you gotta have the kimchi. And we got bean sprouts, potatoes, bell peppers, onions and mushrooms.”

In addition to those options, Camellia also offers barbecue pork, seasoned beef, fried chicken, orange chicken, Korean pancakes, mac salad, sweet rice with red beans, seaweed soup, miso soup, tofu, octopus and sashimi. For dessert, try the red bean porridge or soft-serve ice cream.
