The word "pono" lends itself to many interpretations across the Hawaiian islands. Some hear it as a call to moral action and goodness. For others it may be a state of balance and harmony. But whether you’re in Honolulu or Hana, islanders can always agree on one central and consistent meaning; righteousness!
Harmony & Balance
Pono calls for harmony and balance. We answer with poke that's not over-complicated, never overdressed and always well balanced. The fish is our star, and we mean to let it shine. We cut precisely, season thoughtfully, and toss carefully so you can experience poke the way it was meant to be.
Boat to Bowl
The sourcing of our tuna is possible thanks to our fantastic supplier Honolulu Fish Company, who hold themselves to the most righteous of environmental standards, boasting an impressive dual environmental sustainability certification. The tuna is exclusively line caught in Hawaiian waters before it’s shipped fresh to us overnight. Working with sushi grade fish that's never frozen allows us to preserve taste and texture from boat to bowl. And while Salmon isn't native to Hawaiian waters that doesn't stop us from finding sustainable options off the coast of Faroe Island in Scotland.
Share the Love
We don't just take great care of our fish though, our Pono Ono team starts at $15 an hour, and we're proud to offer profit sharing opportunities to our most capable and hard working staff members. There's lots of love to go around, why not share some.
