Strip mall gem!

Ono Gelato was awesome and decent portion too! Wasn't sure what to expect (weird location)...? Loved the funky decor and a great flavor selection too! They also had bakery treats (had an awesome nut covered brownie snack... wow!) Wish I had gone back for seconds!

Ok place for a pit stop but nothing that would make this place make a person go back. Way better places for refreshing treats than this one. Quit high prices too for options within the area

Ono Gelato K, Owner at Ono Gelato Kihei, responded to this review

Aloha, and thank you for your review. Since the opening of the original Ono Gelato in Paia in the mid 2000s, our prices have only recently gone up 25 cents, despite the skyrocketing price of milk since then. We take pride in our gelato, as we use the finest quality ingredients and make everything fresh, every day, in house. We... More

Didn't taste like gelato at all; rather, super sweet ice cream. Not creamy either. Burned hazelnuts. Also too expensive for what you get. Hawaii Gelato in Lahaina, by comparison, was superb.

The gelato is great, the attitude isn't. A disenchanted fanchisee should sell out if not happy, life's too short.

Stopped in after having lunch. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There are so many choices and should be something for everyone. Beside the gelato, they also have sorbet. All in all a great selection. We tried the chocolate and the coconut flavors. They were creamy and delicious -really great intense flavors. There is seating along the window and... More

While everyone goes to Cold Stone, we drive down the road to Ono Gelato. Great choice of favors and super creamy gelato.

Conveniently located at Azeka Shopping Center in Kihei, this store has delicious gelato. Many flavors to choose from - coffee crunch, chocolate chili, cappuccino, lilikoi quark (made with cheese from Surfing Goat Dairy) - probably about 20 flavors in total including a few non-dairy flavors which are mostly fruit based. $5 for one, $6 for two, $7 for three flavors...

From the reviews there must be some real gelato aficionados in the place. Gelato was tasty and lots of unique flavors. And great that it was in central Kihei. Maybe the other 2 stores are "better", but I am not driving clear to Lahaina to specifically have gelato. Ono in Kihei was good.

Excellent gelato! This is the same store that was in Paia. These are fresh made and very flavorful. My favorite is the lilikoi quark, made with goat cheese from Surfing Goat Dairy. Portion sizes are generous, and on Mondays and Tuesdays, quart size take-out tubs are at discount.
