Serving Hawaii for almost 30 years is Camellia Buffet on McCully Street. From the minute you walk in the delicious yakiniku aroma fills the room as guests cook their food at their table.
Most popular at Camellia Buffet are its kalbi and orange chicken, and its sirloin steak and shrimp from the dinner buffet.
“The kalbi and steak are high-quality meats, and are very tasty and tender,” says manager Kelly Park. Both the kalbi and sirloin steak, along with all its other meat dishes are flavored with a secret sauce.
“The orange chicken is really popular among the kids,” she adds.
In addition to kalbi and chicken, the buffet line offers barbecue beef, pork and vegetables. Camellia Buffet also serves some local favorites such as kim chee fried rice, macaroni salad, fried mandoo, kim chee, taegu and kim chee cucumber; and traditional Korean dishes including Korean pancake and Korean sweet tea. Sides such as seaweed soup and miso soup, fruits and Jell-O, rice and sweet rice with red bean are available to complete the meal; and shrimp, sirloin steak and frozen yogurt are added to the dinner menu.
Open seven days a week, lunch is priced at $17.95 and $13 for children ages 4 to 8. Dinner costs $25.95 and $15 for children. A private room for up to 30 people also is available inside the restaurant.
