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 the fantastic fishermen of Hawaii. In fact, we partner with suppliers recommended directly by the Hawaii Seafood Council! Whenever possible we source our tuna directly from Hawaii, exclusively line caught in Central Pacific 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. The nuts and seaweeds we use in our traditional pokes are also sourced straight from the islands. And while Salmon isn't native to Hawaiian waters, that doesn't stop us from finding sustainable sources off the coast of British Columbia.
Share the Love
We don't just take great care of our fish though The Pono Ono team all start above minimum wage, are paid a fair living wage, 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.
