    Service was terrible. Had to wave the server down multiple times after they forgot multiple parts of our order. We were also kicked out when the “time limit” had been reached but really shouldn’t have been considering the server delayed our dining by being so forgetful.

    First time dining here. We did the online reservations and know why it makes sense, since it is very popular!! We saw customers waitng nearly an hour if they were just walk ins. Wonderful atmosphere and food. Very convenient location but hard to find parking, other than that, the food was so good and a great price for All You Can Eat for 2!!!

    Wait staff not very attentive. For a place that charges premier rates for beverages and food you would think they would try and replace your beers often. In 90 minutes I had two beers and two servings of food. I wasn’t in danger of being charged for leftovers.

    Went to dinner with 7 people in our group. Service was poor with no introduction, explanation or guidance as to what was recommended or served. We had to ask what was around the grill and was told that it was mac n cheese, corn n cheese and egg that would cook once the grill was lit. The best part was the Shoju because it wasn't watered down. The worst part is when the server kept turning down the heat of the grill so it would take longer to cook the food. This was to slow down the amount of orders so they couldn't order more food. That's terrible service, especially when you only have a 90 minute time limit in which to order/eat!

    Sura gives you that authentic korean bbq restaurant vibes. The food was great, but the restaurant just gets really hot with all the cooking. The steamed vent helps a bit, but it was still hot. The tables were small, so I wish it was bigger. It was considerate of them to babe extra storage near your table to place your bags. Also, the location is not in a great spot. Parking there was ridiculous, so we needed going with paid parking. Overall, our experience was okay and I would go back again if I were going with only my husband. They do accomadate bigger parties!

    I wanted my Aunt to experience a different type of food 🍱 experience and Sura Hawaii certainly came through! She was a bit taken aback by the graffiti all over the walls and columns inside and out of the restaurant but I explained to her that it was part of the modern day charm showing the restaurants unique city roots and vibe! She was also a bit skeptical about how the food would taste and that we had the “cook” our own food rather than the restaurant cooking it but once the waiter brought our order of meats 🥩 and vegetables 🥗 and we started cooking she was completely surprised and blown away by the smells, flavors and the entire experience, she ended up loving it! Our waiter, Jose, was great and very attentive to us! Great job, Jose! Thank You, Sura Hawaii, for a wonderful experience! I give you my personal 5-Shaka rating! 🤙🤙🤙🤙🤙

    First time at Sura, great food but a bit confusing at the start. Once we figured it out, we really enjoyed it. It’s loud and a warm in there (due to the grills) but it was a fun time. Would love to go back next time we visit.

    This is my honest opinion about Sura located in Kapiolani Blvd. Price: not worth the money for the quality, taste, selection and portion of food serrved. Food: there's only few selections to choose from; we ordered seaweed and seafood soups and those were too salty for our tastebuds and portion is too little, but the bowl and spoon were serving sizes. We got splattered many times because of the oil from the sides where the macaroni salad and the eggs were. Service: our reservation was set at 10pm and we were seated like 10:15 which is still reasonable. Ordering is easy but then our waiter didn't realize that our party of 13 people (divided in 2 tables but it's next to each other) is all under him. He took orders from 1 table but neglected the other table. Fortunately, the crews are pleasant. Restaurant/location/parking: it's a small restaurant with limited parking on the street and valet parking is also very limited. Inside the restaurant where we were seated, the floor was wet and dirty. Overall: not going back....but I like the crews for being friendly and accommodating.

    The servers are very friendly and accommodating. I explained to them about my brother’s autistic pickiness with food, and they were extremely accommodating to him! Hands down to them for that. Kalbi was marinated perfectly. Pork belly was nice and thick. They don’t skimp out on their portions even though it’s all-you-can-eat. I just wish they offered beef tongue on the menu and a little more banchan. Other than that, everything was perfect.

    The food was good, but the graffiti on the walls made the place unique. There were some inappropriate words tagged and scattered about. My 6-year-old read them, but thankfully, he was unaware of Hawaiian slang.

    Had a reservation for 7 people and were seated pretty quickly upon arrival. The sides that typically accompany the ayce meal (edamame & pickled cucumber) were enough for a toddler’s appetizer - it barely filled 1/4 of the already small bowl. 4 cucumber slices and 6 pieces of edamame for a table of 7. Even the though the staff were very friendly and hospitable, they forgot more than half the things we ordered even after asking them for it multiple times (more than 3 times). Was too disappointed with the food to even take pictures.

    We had poor service but this may be just the waitress that day. What I want to mention is that this is not a very authentic Korean restaurant. Although very good value if you’re a big eater, please know that kimchi and side dishes taste mediocre at best.

    This was my first time enjoying Korean bbq and I must say I was not disappointed. The brisket and bulgogi were both super tasty and the Mac and cheese on the side was a nice addition as well. I wish they had cocktails but the lychee iced tea def got the job done. My only complaint is that it was my sister in law’s bday and I annotated that in the reservation yet was it was still not acknowledged.
