Nice little place close to Kahana Falls. Lots of tasty Hawaiian food at good prices. Was so good we went twice.

Ono Kau Kau Plate Lunch was a great fine for that quick plate lunch that Hawaii is famous for. In this Mom & Pop type place there are only 4 tables with 16 chairs. If you are lucky you'll get a table otherwise you order to go and eat in your car or out on the lawn. Portions are exceptionally... More

Only a few tables for sit-down dining, but the service is very accommodating. Menu is varied, but I got their mixed BBQ plate, and enjoyed it very much. It was exactly what I wanted. Plenty of left overs, too! Only complaint was the large TV they had on in the dining room. It was the day after the presidential election,... More

Where else on Maui can you feed 5 people dinner for $40? This place was right around the corner from our condo, I looked at the reviews on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try. Good chinese, fresh vegetables, fast service, inexpensive and the kids loved it!

Friends recommended getting the mixed plate. My husband got the seafood mixed and I got the pork. Both of us liked our meals. Portions were large and it was reasonably priced. A very casual place with 4 tables inside and 2 outside.

Seek out the big Mixed Plate sign on the front, or you will overlook this little gem of a restaurant. Making the best of a combined-use building on Lower Honoapiilani Highway, Ono Kau Kau is easily overlooked because it is elbow-to-elbow with a tattoo parlor, moped and board rental shop, a beach clothing shop, and probably a few more businesses...

Make sure to bring your patience when you eat or pick up dinner here. Food is good and price is reasonable but the place needs to add another wait person during busy dinner hours. Expect 20 minutes or more wait to get your food. That is definitely too long for a wait for a fast food place. Even called in... More

We came here for a quick and cheap eat. It definitely satisfied both criteria but that was about it. We had the local food: grilled garlic ono and the locomoco. Both weren't very good but you get what you pay for. If I were to come back, I'd try the Chinese food but barring that, probably would rather eat elsewhere.... More

At first glance this place doesn't look like much and we almost didn't stop. Boy are we glad that we did, this place has the best kalua pork I have ever eaten! The portions are huge and the price is very reasonable. In fact, it was so good we went back the next night to get some more. It can... More

This is a small local restaurant that serves American and Chinese cuisine. My husband and I shared two dishes - vegetable fried rice and tofu with vegetables. Both were tasty and the prices were reasonable.
