As I was putting this review together I was going to say we came here for the seafood but ended up ordering pupu. We were puzzled why the menu had almost no seafood and that's when I realized we went to Ono Hawiian Foods instead of Ono Seafood! lol! The portions here are huge and the only mistake we made...

Ono Hawaii Foods is a small restaurant with great staff. I'm on my vacation in Honolulu, and one goal of mine was to try some authentic local food. They helped me to pick the food, described the dish in a detailed way. They provided me a glass of cold water right away even before I picked my meal, for me... More

When we stopped by here, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. However, the server was very helpful, explaining what all of the dishes were. The food came out extremely quickly and our waitress even tought us how to properly eat. Great experience!

Had lunch at Ono's Hawaiian. They asked us if we knew about the food (no). So they told us. We ordered the pork platter. They brought out some poi (not on the platter), along with onions, beef jerky-like, pork, spicy sauce, and coconut gelatin-ish dessert. All was very good! I had poi before, but nothing like this.

Because this was already so well rated, we tried it. At first glance, it's not something I would normally go in. However, once inside, the owner directed us where to sit and then we were quickly waited on. We were obviously tourists, but they were very helpful and didn't give us the "you don't belong here" treatment. They explained much... More

We were tired from all of the day's activities so we stopped here for a quick meal. Street parking is limited, so we parked a block away at a meter. We ordered the Kalua pig plate. We were so tired that we got the order to go. They made it quickly and we took it back to our hotel room.... More

This is our first stop every time we arrive on Oahu... straight from the airport to Ono before we even check-in. We always get the Combo plate (laulau, kalua pig, lomi salmon, poi (gotta have), pipikaula, haupia, and a side of rice. We are always treated with much Aloha! We often over-hear how welcoming they are to new guests in... More
