“Best Hawaiian Plate on Kauai!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Laulau, lomi salmon, rice and poke...who could ask for anything more? The family owned and operated Pono Market is THE place to go for local plate lunches and my favorite is their Hawaiian plate. The laulau is moist, perfectly salted and enough lu'au leaf to the last bite. LOVE!!!

“Great local food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

The poke is so good. We got the spicy poke and wasn't disappointed. Their Kailua pig was also so authentic and delicious. Prices were really reasonable and they have a few tables in the front of the store. Great local business with great food!

“Must do,ust Eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

When we come Kauai, my husband and I always to the Pono Market to pick up food for the beach. Spam, teriyaki chicken, and Portuguese sausage musubi are yummy. Makisushi are good too. Local people come here for their mixed plates. Yummy.
