On our way back to the hotel from Leonard's Bakery, we came across this restaurant - another place on our bucket list to visit while in Honolulu. We were told by friends that from the outside, the restaurant looked like a "hole in the wall" cafe, but it actually served really good traditional Hawaiian-style cooking. We went just before noon...

We decided to visit because of the excellent reviews we read online. We were not disappointed. Definitely a hole-in-the-wall type of place, but so delicious! I couldn't believe how fast the service was either. We had our food on the table within about 5 minutes. The kalua pork was my favorite personally!

Great stop on our bike food tour! This place had awesome plate lunch. Like a lot of local places, if you don't know what you're looking for, just ask! The staff was super friendly and made great suggestions. Like the name says... it's so ono!

I don't know how my wife found this place but thank god she did. You will not find any finer authentic Hawaiian food in any of the islands. Portions are large, food is delicious and the friendly staff practically orders for you. Not to mention, the food came out so fast.

We stopped by ONO for a dinner to get Kalua pig and Lao Lao. We also ordered chicken long rice and it was delicious. It was such a satisfying dinner. Service here is pretty good. If you are not sure what to order, any plate dish will do. The plates are not served in one dish (each item on plate... More

I went to Ono's with couple of friends after many suggestions. Its absolutely a wonderful place to taste local authentic Hawaiian food. I LOVE chicken long rice soup and kimchi. Totally recommend this place. They don't take reservations, first come first serve. They close at 8:00pm, so recommend going earlier to make sure you can try any item you want... More

Pulled pork simmered in its own juice) -Laulau (Tasty! Parcel of pork wrapped in taro leaves and steamed) -Pipikaula (salted and spicy dried beef - like beef... More

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...
