This place is AMAZING! If anyone were to ask where me favorite poke place is without any hesitation I would say 'Ai Pono Cafe! My husband Brett showed me this place and Dana the owner is so sweet and friendly. Ingredients are so fresh you can tell a lot of thought and love went into making each dish. We love you guys!!

I had the spicy Ahi poke bowl. The poke was great, BUT the portions were small. There was about 2-3 forkfuls of fish and the rest was all rice and lettuce. My main issue was just the ratio of fish to everything else and was left bummed out with a bunch of filler. It was a good, healthy spot and the spam musubi there were also pretty good but I wasn't happy with the extremely small portion of fish.

Best Hawaiian food I have ever had. I've had the pleasure to try multiple plates and have enjoyed them all. They have daily specials which you can't help to try them because they make your mouth water just reading them. My favorite special dish was a smoke pork belly burger with a tempura battered onion ring in it. Their chicken katsu is amazing and they have a healthy menu too like ahi poke and acai bowls.
