678 Hawaii Restaurant Review:

With high-quality meats, attentive service and a surprisingly smoke-free environment, 678 Hawaii is not your average Honolulu yakiniku restaurant. Diners order a selection of raw meats to grill at their table, with combos offering the best bang for the buck. This option delivers a selection of meats plus Korean-style banchan (sides), and your choice of stew (kimchi, bean paste or soft tofu). Servers deliver copious amounts of refreshing cold tea (water is available upon request), and also cook your food, one meat type at a time, and then cut it into pieces, which you then eat with dipping sauces and rice. We recommend the 678 combo, which includes prime rib-eye, Kobe brisket, and your choice of prime boneless short rib, marinated short rib or outside skirt. Tabletop grills --- topped by a sleek pendant hood --- are used to prepare scrambled eggs, corn and cheese, kimchi and other vegetables. If grilled meats don't appeal, other Korean dishes are available. The loft-like restaurant feels large, but it can fill up quickly with sizeable groups. Expect waits during peak dinner times. Lunch is a good alternative and not as hectic. And if you’re wondering who the grinning man is in the restaurant posters and menu, he is Korean celebrity Kang Ho-dong, who is also the restaurant's owner. Other locations.
