About Us

Pā´ina in Hawaiian means “gathering”.  It’s a very simple word, but it strongly represents family and relationships.  At Pā´ina Café, we feel that great food is the catalyst that binds relationships closer together.  The tastiest and freshest foods help inspire conversation, creativity, fun, and happiness.

Pā´ina Café was named one of "The 17 Most Important Restaurants In Honolulu" by Summer Nakaishi, Thrillist.com, on July 27, 2015, and selected as one of "America's most amazing meals for $10 or less" by Cheap Tickets in 2015.  Pā´ina Café was also featured on OC16's television show, 6 Picks, and selected by Hawaii celebrity hosts as one of Hawaii's favorite poke in 2016.
