“Great Food but very bad service”
Reviewed 28 July 2012 via mobile

waited over 50 minutes for my food and the place was not crowded. the food was great but if the waits continue it wont be worth the wait anymore. A bit expensive too for the area.

“Great for dinner on the go”
Reviewed 4 May 2012

This is a family favorite when we don't feel like cooking. The kids love the chicken teriyaki bowls, while the main entrees are so generous that two can share. The steamed cabbage and macaroni pasta are delicious. Great place for dining in or take out. Staff is reall friendly.

“Different type of BBQ”
Reviewed 26 January 2012

We went there on a lunch hour. The restaurant appeared to be a bit short staffed so the dining room was a bit in need of attention. However, the food and service was very good. The portions were large and the food tasty! I would go again.

“Good Hawaiian BBQ...nothing extraordinary.”
Reviewed 19 January 2012

There aren't many places to get Hawaiian BBQ, and ONO is the only one near where we live. It fills the bill - the bbq short ribs are great, and the brisket and chicken are both good as well when you are in the mood. My chicken was a bit stringy...but the seasoning was good. I like to get the combo that mixes all three of these meats, with rice and macaroni salad. Of all the food, the macaroni salad is the best, a good blend that is nice and creamy.

One con is that I simply got water and it was very highly chlorinated in flavor...not refreshing or appealing to drink. This, coupled with a slightly disinfectant smell in the restaurant (from a recent cleaning?) made me change from dining in to take-out, as I didn't want to taint the flavors of the food with the smells of the dining room and chlorinated water.

If you are in the mood, its good but not great.
