“Excellent "Hawaiian" food”
Reviewed 27 April 2012

I ate here twice, and loved it both times. The spicy ahi poke was amazing, as was the Pork LauLau. Also loved the meatloaf. Be sure to get here early for lunch! This is the place for good, local takeout!

“Who knew?”
Reviewed 18 April 2012 via mobile

FANTASTIC sesame poke, and very nice lomi lomi salmon. Extremely friendly fellow serving and explaining. Homemade rice pudding was outstanding, too. Took it back and ate it at wailua beach park. Fresh fish by the sound of the surf. Excellent

“Pono Market is a good place to buy...”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

Spam Musubi's, lunch meals and other side bentos
Its a nice little store located near Kapaa town.
The locals buy their foods from over here, its really good and not extremely pricey. Its located near the cemetery: not a good location.

“Fresh market”
Reviewed 8 April 2012

Once I entered the Pono market, everyone there was very friendly. The service is also fast and the food delicious.

Their fish was really fresh, especially the tuna. The laulau tasted great.

For such good food, the prices are pretty good. Overall a great experience
