The Best Since 1994 — From the Owner

On September 19, 1994, Shilawon Korean Restaurant  opened its doors in Honolulu, HI, becoming the first investment in the restaurant business by a South Korean enterprise anywhere in the region. Since then, Shilawon has undergone several ownership changes, but one thing has remained constant: the quality of our authentic Korean cuisine. And today, we're entering our best era yet. Together with my parents, who have prepared dishes for Shilawon since the beginning, I've committed my ownership to making New Shilawon Korean Restaurant the best all-around dining experience anywhere in Hawaii.

We ordered the unlimited BBQ and it came with a bunch of sides. Everything tasted delicious and well seasoned. They had many side plates that you can try and get refills on them as well. The place wasn't smokey like other KBBQs that I've been too and the place was very clean.”
