Found this little place last November. Good food at very reasonable prices. Nothing fancy, but the kalua pork is delicious. I had a mixed plate of Kayla pork and chicken katsu. Both were large portions and with the two scoops of rice and one scoop of great macaroni salad, I was stuffed when I finished the meal. My wife and... More

Following a local review of Top 20 Places for Local Food, we stopped by Ono Kau Kau for dinner. While a few others came in for take-out, we had the place to ourselves except for regular visits by a couple of cockroaches. The "special mixed plate" of BBQ short ribs, chicken, and pork curry, with the requisite macaroni and cheese... More

The food was Chinese based in sauce which is not local food. Not bad local Chinese food yes (a little heavy on salt) but this is not what is advertised. Don't let this deter you from local mixed plates like on the other side of the street. This was pretty disappointing.

We stayed at apartments down the road from this small but impressive restaurant. We were wandering along the road looking for dinner and missed it as it was unassuming from the front. But as we did a loop we wandered in and we were pleasantly surprised by the standard of Chinese food. It is very small but does a great... More

Some vegetarian options, mostly Standard Chinese choices; the fried bean curd (tofu) was a large portion. The mixed plate with garlic shrimp and ono came with rice and macaroni salad and was very good with mild flavors. Small dining area, but felt very local and authentic.

Four of us ate dinner here, and all walked away with a 2-go box - amazing value. The food was incredibly fresh and had great flavor. We would highly recommend for lunch/dinner, and will be going back to try their breakfast. Which we've heard is fantastic...

Great plate lunch here! Prices are decent and it is a nice local spot to eat among the resort area. You can dine in or carry out. Can get busy at times around lunch and dinner but worth it

Attempting to seek value for money, fresh, quality food in Lahaina, we researched madly & located this unassuming local/Chinese food venue. Service is excellent; Food absolutely delicious. We ordered from the special board: Hawaiian style Pork dish & the seafood mixed plate from the regular menu. Pork 'gravy' was an Asian spice taste sensation & meat was so tender. Fish... More

This place has decent plate lunches/dinners. The mac salad is good and the choices are plenty. We had to wait longer than they told us we would have to but the food was hot and worth the wait. We tried kalua pork, garlic shrimp, and bbq chicken. It was a decent dinner.
