Typical plate lunch = good

I love Hawaiian plate lunch...the more unassuming the place, the better. Good lunch here - one of the better loco mocos on the west side of the island. HUGE portions, we got two meals out of each order. Service is friendly but not fast.

If you are looking for good, local (i.e., Hawaiian) food in Lahaina/Ka'anapali, try Ono Kau Kau Mixed Plate. It's in a strip mall near the ABC Store/gas station in Ka'anapali. Great plate lunches, Chinese and other local foods. Very reasonable and you get a lot!

Small (4 tables), streetside place with cheerful and charming staff, Ono Kau Kau had a steady line-up of local, mostly take-out customers as we dined in. We could see why -- or taste why. Our first taste of Ono (white fish) was delicious -- and a huge meal at a very inexpensive price -- unlike most Kaanapali restos. It doesn't... More

We went to Ono Kau Kau to try the local Hawaiian fare. There are only five or six tables inside and most of their business, from what we saw, was take-out. The layout is pretty spartan, so if your looking for a nicer sit down establishment, this is not it. Most of the folks we saw were picking up meals... More

Ono kau kau is a great little place for inexpensive breakfast that isn't super filling and has a great value for what you get. The server was very nice and super quick, we where there very early and the place did fill up fast. Also super close to everything without being loud. Would recommend this to anyone.

We found Ono Kau Kau Mixed Plate by accident. It is about a 5 minute walk from our timeshare at the Kaanapali Beach Club. The place is small with about 6 tables and can get a bit crowded but the food is very tasty with a nice mix of chinese and local Hawaiian tastes. It is reasonably priced and you... More

This place has a huge menu filled with lots of great options. Food was surprisingly good, service (a mom and pop style place) was great and friendly. This place is definitely recommended. The lady running it is really nice, helpful and pleasant.

My sister and I ate here. Never again. The honey shrimp was bland and plain, nothing to get excited about for sure. And the pot stickers were oily and odd tasting. I won't be going back here. So many restaurants with same prices and really good food like aloha mixed plate in Lahaina.

This is a great example of not judging based on looks. Food was delicious! Big portions, fast, very friendly, and fair priced. My wife an I went twice as the food was so good. Huge menu to choose from. We got it to go both times, this place only has four tables and doesn't have a nice ambiance. I wish... More

Fast, friendly, and delicious. If you're looking for a good lunch or an inexpensive dinner this is a great choice. The food is fresh and there's an astonishingly wide (50+ dishes) selection of Chinese and local dishes. Not surprisingly, the Ono is great here. Super friendly people, large helpings, and low prices make this an easy choice. PS It looks... More
