Went with a friend when we saw the sign for Hawaiann BBQ. Haole Adam is manager and does a great job running the restaurant! This is not the place to get fo' real one scoop mac salad two scoops rice plate lunch, but it's pretty close! I tried the asian salad and potato mac salad for sides - very tasty. the flavor is just like local mac salad, but with potatoes in it too. I had a combo with Kalua Pork, Kalbi, and Mochiko chicken. Also tried the Spam musubi, since they had it on the menu. Very good and well seasoned musubi, nice recipe for the Mochiko, small serving of Kalbi but tasted very good. Kalua pig was not my favorite but it's hard to match a pit roasted pig in a kitchen.

Overall good serving sizes well plated for a great price. I wanted to try the poke but was too full! I will visit again when I'm in Tustin.

I contacted ONO ONO to cater an office staff appreciation lunch and the food, chicken, kalua pork, wasabi potatoes and rice were all excellent. It got rave reviews from the entire office. The food was excellent, service was excellent and efficient (and they delivered!). The overall value was outstanding.

Highly recommended.

“Ono” in Hawaiian means “delicious,” and that accurately describes many of the menu items at Ono Ono. Hawaiian-style take-out (i.e., plate lunch) spots are becoming increasingly popular here in California, but the menu offerings at Ono Ono can be considered a step above such places. One of those offerings is their delectable poké (raw tuna marinated in soy sauce, sesame oil and other seasonings) available in either a bowl or a salad. You get multiple choices when it comes to side dishes; in addition to the traditional steamed rice and macaroni salad, you can also choose from such items as Asian slaw and long rice (rice noodles with bits of chicken and veggies). And, if you have room for dessert, you can get some Hawaiian shaved ice more, which is much more snow-like than any snow cone found on the mainland. The bottom line is, if you want some good “grinds” (food) come to Ono Ono!

Dear Patrons,

The correct add is www.ono-onohawaiianbbq.com. Once again, www.ono-onohawaiianbbq.com.. The add, www.onoonohawaiianbbq.com is being wrongfully and unfairly linked to other biz (on-line theft).

M/time, we are now offering a free sidedish tray or USD25 VALUE dine-in coupon for a catering order of 10 or more people.

Onoliciously yours,

Wow! i wasn't expecting much when I walked into the only restaurant busy in the shopping center, was i surprised! The food was so good, I wanted some more the very next day It borders between fast food and an expensive restaurant. i ordered the fresh tuna salad, it wa heavenly. The sea salt and sesame oil made the soft as butter tuna a wonderful treat. The price made it even better, under ten bucks! The mochiko chicken was really flavorful, light and the texture... I would love some right now...
