Customers line up outside the windows until staff come out to offer you a table. I counted and I am guessing approximately 25 seats. Let the wonderful owner explain the dishes and show you how to eat them. And most importantly wish the owners a...More

We came here for dinner one night, about 30 minutes before they closed at 8pm. The food was delicious but the choice was limited, they said they'd ran out of a lot of dishes. So they brought us what they still had available - which...More

Ate here today with a friend for a late lunch. Between the both of us, we ordered the Kalua pig meal, and ala carte items of rice, Kalua pig, fried fish, and squid luau. The Kalua pig was like Kalua pig everywhere I've had it,...More

This is the best place in Honolulu if you are looking for authentic Hawaiian food. Do not waste your time looking for good Hawaiian food in a Luau (you won't find it unless you know some locals and they invite you to an authentic one)....More

This was a fabulous spot, off the main drag but well worth the stroll. Food was quick, delicious and authentic as was the helpful friendly service. Fantastic!

Another wonderful place in Honolulu to get your local food fix when in Hawaii. Everything is delicious even down to their poi! It's a small place so there may be a wait during peak hours but the food is worth it!

The older man who serves was very helpful with descriptions of the food and how to eat it, but everyone was friendly. Very tasty for a hole in the wall.

In business over 50 years, Ono's is the best authentic Hawaiian food you will find anywhere! Locals will all agree on that. I live on the mainland, but this is my "must go" place for over 30 years. If you don't know what the dishes...More

This is a tiny restaurant near Waikiki beach. They serve pork or chicken wrapped in seaweed. You can get poi or white rice. They set up fresh tomatoes and onions you eat with the meat. Don't expect a lot of flavor, it's basic Hawaiian food....More

One of the most delicious and authentic Hawaiian meals in Honolulu. Meals are family style. The owners were very helpful. Since my partner and I were visiting the restaurant for the first time and trying new food, they taught us history about the meals and...More

No they are not available. I am not positive if they allow BYOB. I'd give them a call. The Oh Young Family are great people!

Probably not the best choice if mac salad is what you are looking for. As far as I know, they only have traditional Hawaiian.
Can you get orders to go? Take-out?
