    Get your poke on at Ono's. Many different types of poke are available by weight as desired. There are only a couple tables out front but getting it to go and enjoy that by the beach or at a lanai is also a great option.

    The poke and tako rice bowl is SO onolicious!! And what a deal, at only $5.50, which also includes a soda or bottled water.

    We walked from our hotel to Ono Seafood, got our poke bowls and walked back to our hotel, not realizing that this is truly a hole in the wall where you can only take your food to go. I was so tempted to bust out my food on the walk home and devour it all, but I saved it until we returned to our hotel where we were able to enjoy it on the patio.

    The poke just melted in my mouth, and it was covered in a perfect amount of spices. I loved the tako as well, which was amazingly tender - not chewy or hard at all.

    I'm so jealous of the locals here who can have poke all the time - it is definitely so much better and abundant in Hawaii!!

    Is this the best tuna poke on Oahu? Hometown hero Ed Kenney (chef-owner of Town restaurant) says so. Order a portion tossed to order—along with pickled mango, kimchi, boiled peanuts, and poi—and decide for yourself.

    Totally unexpected, but this place has the best poke and tako rice bowls on the island! They're a steal at under $6, which INCLUDES a beverage. The parking lot is small, and the storefront is also, but there is a picnic table outside for quick dining.

    Ono Seafood has got to be one of Hawaii's most impressive examples of what having an undeniably masterful recipe can do for a restaurant. This establishment is sandwiched between a Shell gas station and a towering apartment building, and in spite of it's (to put it nicely) unassuming location, it is a great place to stop in and walk out with some of Hawaii's most delicious fish based dishes. Squid, Ahi, and a wide range of other locally caught seafood are served up here with attention to detail not found at many other establishments. If you are up for a bit of a treasure hunt, grab the GPS and make your way to this tiny seafood joint for some of the area's best such cuisine.

Description

Ono Seafood, translates as "yummy seafood," and they certainly aren't guilty of false advertising. This absolutely tiny establishment is the quintessential hole-in-the-wall restaurant, but if you do happen to notice it out of the corner of your eye, make note, since it is home to some of the best poke in Honolulu. Diners from across the state rave about the selection of fresh spiced fish served ... read more
here, of which the Ahi Poke is legendary. The restaurant itself is serviced by a friendly bunch of local aunties, and has a dedicated following of lo cal regulars drawn by Ono's exceptional seafood. As I mentioned before, it's a real hidden gem, overshadowed by a nearby gas station into almost complete obscurity of location. They say it's all about location, location, location, but Ono Seafood is proving that assumption to be false. Totally worth seeking out, this exceptional seafood restaurant may not be the most impressive restaurant to look at, but it is still going strong thanks wholly to their outstanding selection of fresh and quality seafood.
