McCully Buffet features everything from brisket and sausage to hot dogs and a beef belly bar.

Nestled in the heart of Honolulu, McCully Buffet offers a dining experience the whole family can enjoy with its mix of Korean barbecue and Japanese cuisine.

“This is the only buffet where we can enjoy Korean barbecue and seafood,” says owner Sam Seo. “A very unique concept in Honolulu.”

The restaurant brings together an all-you-can-eat buffet of sashimi, sushi, Korean meats, vegetables and fresh Hawaii tuna — perfect for guests of all ages. Customers can also enjoy the restaurant’s yakiniku cooking style.

Lunch is available for adults for $27.95, and children under 10 eat for $18.95. Dinner is $37.95 for adults and $29.95 for children under 10.

Seo, who has been with the restaurant for 25 years, says his restaurant receives fresh tuna every morning and is “serving high-quality ahi for sashimi, sushi and poke.” In addition to the fresh ingredients, senior citizens and military personnel are offered a 10% discount on the buffet Mondays-Thursdays.

Although the eatery does not currently serve lunch on weekdays, it will eventually open for lunch and dinner daily. Seo says he also hopes to start serving breakfast as well.
