Ono Kau Kau is Good Grindz for local type food

We eat at Ono Kau Kau every time we are in Kaanapali. They have a menu with a lot of different choices. The restaurant itself is small with no ocean view and natural air conditioning. However, if you looking for some local Grindz that you can walk to from the Kaanapali area, Ono is a good choice.

Loved eating at Ono Kau Kau! Mixed plate is very good at a reasonable price for Maui. I particularly like their Garlic Ono. It's also a great place to get food to go!

We asked the front desk clerk where he would eat, and he sent us to this place. We loved the food, and the variety of the menu. This is where the working locals eat at the Lahaina area. Enjoy your food!

My husband and I had a great lunch today at Ono Kau Kau. We had eaten there once before and loved. We were not disappointed. We split and appetizer - the potstickers. Had 3 a piece. Then I had the egg flower soup which came in a gigantic bowl. I could only eat half of it - but it was... More

Right across of Times Market. Just follow your nose. That's how my son found the place. If you like to try something new, try the combo plate with Kalua pork and lau lau. Delish.
