This past trip to Maui we vowed NOT to eat at any touristic food places, including chains, and high priced celebrity chef restaurants. We chose local places rated by locals as ONO or delicious... We were actually headed to Honokowai Okazuya & Deli across the street, but they were closed. We stopped in here because it looked like a local... More

Walked by this place three or four times and thought, "no way." Then saw some of the reviews on TA and decided to try it. So glad I did. We didn't try the Chinese side of the menu, only the Hawaiian, and it was fantastic. The value is great as well, really really inexpensive for great food and amazing portions.... More

We visited Ono Kau Kau based on the Trip Advisor reviews. Glad we did. This is a very small place, in a very small parking lot. Don't drive too fast or you will miss it. There are a few tables to eat inside, or you can get take out like we did. I had the garlic Ono mixed plate, with... More

Nothing to look at, if you judge by the outside. But the food is really great and the best deal you are likely to find for good food in the area. I've eaten there twice, last summer and this year, both were consistently great! And they are open until 9:30 pm!!

I love this drab looking place. The food is super fresh and the service is quick and friendly. I eat here whenever I am on Maui. Don't let the outside fool you, this is the best deal on Maui.

Outstanding colorful, attractive well prepared Chinese food. Enjoyed the egg flower soup, the honey glazed shrimp with pineapple, the shrimp fried rice, each one a delicacy, very moderately priced. Service was efficient and friendly

While staying at the Papakea we wanted to go someplace close for a lite dinner. Ono Kau Kau was suggested. Looking from the outside, I looked at my friend and saw a big question mark on her face! We went in and found five tables, 2 occupied, good smells and a lady with a smiling face at the counter. Not... More

We've eaten take-out here many times before and the food and prices are still great. Keep it coming, Ono Kau Kau! I stayed at the Aston Papakea and it's directly oceanside of the Ono Kau Kau. Unfortunately there's no way to get there without walking the long way around. They should put in a little gate or something for Papakea... More

Ate here twice with my wife within 4 days during our stay at the Aston Kaanapali Shores, which by the way, was excellent. The food at this joint was delicious and reasonably priced for Maui. I ate the Kalua Pork twice and since I do not like Mac salad, they added extra rice instead. Excellent place to eat. Even my... More

Last meal in Maui, before heading to the airport and it was one of the best meals for us in Hawaii. This place is a tiny hole in the wall with only four tables but the food was absolutely amazing. We ordered - Garlic Shrimp, Chicken Katsu, Garlic Hawaiian Fish and Lau Lau, each of them absolutely delicious. Also picking... More
