Our readers adore ‘Ohana, which means “family.” The food is hearty and honest, and if you love meat and you come hungry, it’s a great place to fill up. The method of service and the fact that it just keeps coming make it all taste a little better. Request a seat in the main dining room, where the fire pit is.
Setting and Atmosphere
Columns of carved tiki gods support the raised thatched roof in the center of ‘Ohana’s main dining room, while the dining tables, arranged in rows, resemble long, segmented surfboards. The centerpiece of the main room is a large, open-pit grill, on which your food is prepared with flair and flare: From time to time, the chef will pour some liquid on the fire, causing huge flames to shoot up. This is usually in response to something one of the strolling entertainers has said, evoking a sign from the fire gods.
‘Ohana is perfect for families with young children. At any given moment, there may be a hula-hoop contest or a coconut race, where kids are invited to push coconuts around the dining room with broomsticks.
Skewer service is the specialty here—there’s no menu. As soon as you’re seated, the feeding frenzy begins. Starters include honey-glazed chicken wings, fried pork dumplings, pineapple-coconut bread, and lettuce wraps. The main course is steak, pork loin, chicken, and grilled peel-and-eat shrimp, accompanied by stir-fried vegetables and egg noodles with pineapple in peanut sauce, all placed on a lazy Susan in the center of the table.
