Thank you Pono for making me a new batch of sesame ahi poke even though you were closing in less than an hour. :) I was REALLY looking forward to trying the ahi poke bc I had heard really positive feedback from fellow travelers. I was NOT disappointed by the price and taste of the food. It was seasoned just right and didn't have too many onions and green onions to garnish the snack.
Although Pono is small, you won't have trouble finding parking on the busy Kuhio HIghway. Even though I went around the end-of-the-day traffic hour, there were at least 4-5 spots in front of the business. The people working inside were friendly and patient as I paced back and forth, making decisions about what kind of poke and snacks to get. I decided to hold off on the various coffee drinks and shrimp chips and just stick to what I was REALLY after.
Overall, I'd visit Pono again for their poke and would recommend it to friends who are visiting Kapaa.Recommended for:

**GOOD LUNCH PLATES TO-GO**
Family-owned and operated.
Friendly faces and smiles at the counter.
Helped us patiently with our lunch choices.
*PORK LAU LAU
Delicious and not too salty. Great with the white rice.
Flavorful marinade and had a good enough spicy kick.
*LOMI LOMI SALMON
Also a solid side dish with the poke and pork.
OVERALL RATING: 4/5
We had better on the island. Didn't care that it was not as flavorful (salty).
RECOMMEND if you're in Kapaa.
