We we're looking for an authentic Hawaiian meal and found it here. Very friendly server helped us. He was very informative to us tenderfeet. All of the dishes were delicious. We had the combination place and some other a la carte items. The pork was delicious.

I visited this restaurant on the last day of my stay in Waikiki else I would have definitely gone back to try more items on the menu. Although, as I ordered the combination plate (on the owner's recommendation) I got to taste a wide range of authentic home style dishes. The lady serving you (I presume is co-owner) was excellent...

The owner was so welcoming and patiently explained her menu and the local favorites. She said that for four adults we should order separate meals, but we ended up ordering the lau lau and the beef tripe stew. This ended up being just enough for the four of us The service was very prompt and the food was brought out... More

Delicious traditional Hawaiian food in a small quaint restaurant about a mile or so off the Waikiki strip. The server explained all the food to us and how to eat it. It came out right away and was hot and delicious. The people working were very friendly and helpful. If you want real Hawaiian food do not miss trying out... More

The food was authentic Hawaiian, the owners were very friendly and made us feel like we were their friends. This place was also visited by dozens of well known celebrities, you can see their pictures on the walls.

Traditional Hawaiian food in a small family stule restaurant just out of the Waikiki strip. We didn't know what to order so took advice from the staff and everything was delicious. Our 5 year old son devoured everything on his plate. Except the poi!! Would definitely eat here again. Get there early though as food sells out fast and there... More

We had read several reviews of Ono's and decided to walk from our hotel. Yes, you can walk from Waikiki! Make sure you wear comfortable shoes... the restaurant is very small, seating about 22 total. We shared the kalua pork plate... Soooo good. My husband had never had poi but the owner explained every dish, how to eat it and... More

No nonsense family restaurant. Get the combo plate and take a doggie bag home. And do not forget to bring the cash.

This was by far one of our best experiences this trip. We had a couple friends with us who had never been to the islands and we were not able to get tickets for one of the better luaus. I was searching on trip advisor and after reading the reviews we decided it was what we were looking for. Unfortunately... More
