Still serving great food while staying true to his island

Important to note that the location has moved from Hanalei to Princeville. Same tent, table/benches and mobile kitchen, just now located at the Princeville Ranch. New construction on his old (leased?) lot in Hanalei prompted the move. No worries, you will receive an email and text with directions... read more

Justin prepared the best food our group ate on the island while we were here for a week. He catered a small wedding (less than 40 people) and everything he made was delicious! Our favorites were the ceviche, pork ribs, and butterfish. The dessert was also wonderful! Our servers were great and he seemed like an easy person to work... More

We visit Kauai every year and based on all the glowing reviews thought we'd give it a try. While not a fan of communal dining it sounded like fun. Perhaps our expectations were a bit high and as the chef announced at the beginning of our meal, "don't expect a Michelin quality meal out of a food truck". The first... More

Kauai Ono is a wonderful, fun experience...eating out in a "big tent", in the dark at a table with strangers that become friends! The food is prepared daily, according to what the Chef buys at the local markets. The dishes are tasty, local produce (some of which I had never tried) and their presentation is beautiful. Every dish is prepared... More

This is a really neat experience and offers a way to mix things up from traditional restaurants where we ate the other nights. During my stay, they only had two nights available over the course of one week, so make sure to make reservations about a couple weeks in advance at least. We made a reservation on yelp. I also...

Who'd have thought a food truck could whipped up a phenomenal 7 course gourmet meal! Food was locally sourced even the beef for the short ribs. The seaweed ahi tuna poke was our first course - a wonderful cool starter to our experience on a hot day. The grilled shrimp was sweet garlic and gingery goodness. I could not get... More

We went as a birthday celebration for two people in our group and we were so happy with our decision! The setup is now within the Princeville ranch and it is set under a huge tent with rustic tables and chairs. The BYOB setup allows you to bring what you want to drink and they provide wine openers and coolers.... More

We live part time in Princeville and have eaten here before..... . For a month we have been waiting for Kauai Ono to reopen at their new location. Today was the day....this was their first day back and as before.... the night was outstanding. Their new location made for another memorable dinner. Great Service, Great Food and Great Location !!... More

This was a great choice for dining out on our most recent trip to Kauai. The food and the service were both excellent! I would recommend this unique dining experience to anyone.
