Get there early and be prepared to wait outside (they thoughtfully provide chairs).....seating until 8PM closing - friendly, fast (sometimes too fast so that they can get those waiting in)....and too much food! Choose wisely - and better to be with someone to share - but if you have a refrigerator in your room or condo, you can pack up... More

I needed some new places to try while I was back on the island. Since I was hanging around Kapahulu I checked my yelp mobile app to see what else I could sink my teeth into. Ono Hawaiian showed up with a solid 4 stars. Since yelpers don't lie, I decided that we were gonna have to stop by. It... More

We love it! Ono is located not too far from Waikiki, about a 15 mins drive. We spotted Ono with ease with the assistance from google map. If you are driving, parking could be a problem as parking lots are jot easily available. Count yourself lucky if you could get a public parking right in front of One. Otherwise, try... More

Ono is a little tiny place with a few tables and lots of old memorabilia on the wall. It is not fancy but wow the food! Since I have never had Hawaiian food before, I can't say how authentic it was but it was delicious, hot and fresh. We go the combo platter and it was plenty for two people.... More

For a restaurant that names itself Ono Hawaiian Foods," the quintessential but universally Hawaiian sense of "Aloha" and "Mahalo" are notably missing. The brusque, borderline rude, service detracts, and ultimately overshadows, its otherwise palatable menu items. For the vast majority of us on TripAdvisor who travel to seek pleasant, positive experiences away from home, a caveat-- do not risk blemishing... More

Compared to other reviews, I think we must have hit an off night. Our waiter was impatient, made several recommendations but no explanations, other than the fact that much of the menu had been sold out. We arrived at seven in the evening and they close at eight. Also they never answered their phone when I called before arriving. Service... More

This is the place to go in Honolulu for authentic Hawaiian food. If it is your first time, they will happily provide suggestions and explain what goes with what. Expect a line up at peak lunch or dinner times, so either go for an early or late lunch (when street parking is more readily available). Portions are generous, and the... More

We've been here a number of times throughout my life, and we used to like this place. The last time we came, though, it was awful. We got the kalua pig plate and the laulau plate, both with poi. First, the service was very disinterested and unfriendly. There wasn't a line to get in, and it wasn't busy, so no... More

This place serves delicious authentic Hawaiian food at a reasonable price. I was told locals eat here and we did see many local customers. We got there late and they were out of laulau. We ordered pretty much everything else on the menu. The Kalua pork was very juicy and tasty, the poke was so good and the haupia (coconut)... More

We drive by Ono's a couple of times before we finally saw it. It was well worth the find! Incredibly yummy and authentic Hawaiian food. My husband is not a fan of raw fish, but he loved their poke!! :)
