Get Food Fast — Not Fast Food

Ancient Hawaiians used the ‘ōlena root (Turmeric) as a purifier to cleanse the mind and body, and we hope to continue that tradition with our fare at ‘Ōlena by Chef Ron Simon. Simplicity combined with clean and quality ingredients create the most nutritious and flavorful cuisine, and at ‘Ōlena, Chef Ron strives to create on-the-go meals that are healthy and delicious.
