By serving up a delectable, blended menu featuring Korean-style plates, sushi and some of the freshest local fish available, Honu’s Kalbi & Sushi is quickly reeling in a loyal following.
Customers say they enjoy the Kapahulu Avenue restaurant’s variety, portion sizes and pricing as well as the friendly customer service and ability to order items to go or for dine-in enjoyment.
Guests rave about the Spicy Ahi & Poke Combo ($17.95), as well as the Chirashi Special ($19.95) and Sashimi Special ($25.95), which are composed of fresh fish favorites. There is also a grab-and-go station featuring an array of seafood items.
“We offer high-quality seafood, including fresh tuna from Hawaii, all while keeping the menu very affordable,” says owner Sam Seo. “Come check us out and enjoy good quality food.”
Seo has developed deep roots in the local culinary community through nearly 30 years working in the food industry at the retail and wholesale levels. He previously owned popular takeout spot Ahi & Vegetable and currently supplies meat and seafood on the wholesale market for local businesses as well as some on the mainland.
Additionally, his work as a fish auction buyer for more than 20 years helps him find the freshest fish available that he can pass on to customers at the best prices possible — a win-win for the business and hungry guests.
