Our tour guide on the Waikiki Trolley recommended we try this restaurant which has a most deceiving look from the outside. You know when a place that looks like this has been around for so long that it can only be about one thing and that one thing is the food! The chicken and pork wrapped in leaves was to... More

The food was excellent. We ordered the combo and 3 other entrees for our family of five. Recommend you speak with the owner waiter and just have hime make a recommendation for you. You should arrive early. They run out of food. I had the poke. Excellent. Lau Lau was excellent. The steak special is also very good. We ate... More

Love Ono Hawaiian Foods. Still da best laulau on da island. So many years of sharing good Hawaiian food with ohana, so many good memories. The prices have gone up over the years, but so have the portions. Yes, the combination plate (pork laulau + kalua pig + sides) is officially big enough for two (even for those of us... More

We ate as an extended family as my niece and their two kids joined us for lunch. I had the Laulau pork dinner and couldn't finish all of it with some of the accompanying sides, so I had to take a to-go box and finished what I ordered in two separate meals later. The others all ordered from the menu... More

It was a wonderful experience. We weren't exactly sure of what to order so the owner helped us decide and we were so happy with everything we had, which was a few mixed plates of different things we all shared. I recommend this place to everyone who visits Oahu! So delicious and so much to look at.

Take The Bus, a taxi or walk from Waikiki near the zoo and have some real Hawai'ian food at ONO. ONO means: delicious and that says it all. We had a ball with the staff and had a wonderful meal. In fact we revisited ONO during our stay a second time and ordered the same dish. If you can say... More

We went into Ono with some trepidation. It is small, cluttered and certainly not 5 star presentation, but it was highly recommended so we went in. The food is superb, the service friendly and the price astounding. On the owner's recommendation each couple shared a combination plate ($26) and delicious though it was we could not eat it all. Once... More

If you really want a taste of authentic hawaiian food served with local flair, this is where you need to go. Order many options so you get to really try a range of things, some you may not like (not a big fan of poy--but had to try) but the flavors are unique and wonderful, and the prices make the... More
