If you NO TRY dis eatery, den you da LUUZA. I brought home 4 mixed plates to share and EVERYTHING was Ono and I mean Broke da mouth Ono. Restaurant quality 5 STARS! Everything FRESH! Everything like "where have you been hiding all my life?" Soooo gooood! Dressings, sauces, seasonings were all KILLAH. If I had some money, I'd move them to Waikiki and become an instant Billonaire, and start a franchise, and be one, fat, happy camper! Mahalos for the Kanak Attack in Kalihi.

​Welcome to Pongo's Kitchen

Tip #1

Parking is limited. You can park in the small parking lot next to Pongo's in front of Ted's Machine shop or on the street.

Tip #2
If you have limited time, we recommend you place a phone order to avoid cooking and line wait time.

Tip #3
We almost always sell out of our various chicken entrees such as Sesame Chicken, Guava Chicken, etc. To ensure you get your fix, we recommend you call in your order as early as possible.

Back again working in Kalihi, and already been o Pongos twice. Best food i have had in Honolulu by far.

I have nothing but love for Pongo's

The food is just unbelievably good. Like I want extra stomachs to enjoy it good. It was my first and last meal in Oahu and I'm so glad it was. The workers there are beyond nice. Goose helped me both times I was there. 

I will come back to Pongo's every time I go back to Oahu. My tummy can't wait.

LOcal flavors and so much more...


Pongo's Kitchen and Catering has been providing you with delicious food since 1991. We may be a small "hole in the wall", but we have BIG flavors!


We pride ourselves on our variety. Whether you are in the mood for a good old hearty Beef Stew plate or are in the mood for something a bit more delicate such as grilled salmon with your choice of drizzle, sauce, or butter (ask us about this amazingness!), we have something perfect for you. Need food for an event/ party? We've got you covered. Best plate lunches in Hawaii.

We've been featured in a number of local shows such as Local Kine Grinds, Cheap Eats, various morning news segments, Eh! You Da Kine, Ah?, etc. showcasing our scrumptious food. Don't take our word for it. Check out some of our customer reviews below, and look us up on Yelp.
