Love this place. I had only had the sandwich at the walk-up counter inside Rachel's Ginger Beer at U Village, and I was huge fan. But, the full menu at the West Seattle location is so much more than a chicken sandy! We had the Beet Salad, Musumi, and Poke (delicious) and then shared the Loco Moco Rice Bowl—what a combination of flavors. I can't wait to return and try more from the menu, soon! Aloha!

Very quick service and the food is always top notch.
Tried their Loco Moco for the first time- incredible and so
comforting on a rainy night.

The chicken is hands down some of the best! Very attentive and helpful with an allergy we had at our table. Very friendly and knowledgeable about their menu.

We drive an hour to enjoy Ma'Ono and every time, it's worth it. Food is special, and not what we find at most places. Our server, Bruce, was efficient, friendly, informative, and very welcoming.

The food, was excellent, don't miss the Fried Chicken obviously. It's fantastic! Those sweet rolls are also wonderful, so soft, it's ridiculous.

Great chicken and sides! Very enjoyable atmosphere... lively and comfortable. The side dishes were outstanding! Chicken very tasty .. i was looking for Nashville hot chicken and this wasn’t spicy at all. But cooked perfectly.
The service was bad tho. Took our orders and quickly brought our food and drinks, then never saw a server again. We got up to go ask for the check. Drink refills would have been nice, but we still had a great time and left happy and full. Het the seasonal beet and apple salad!

Liked reserving via Open Table and advisement to order chicken ahead of time.

Beck, the server was great!! Old Fashion was poured great. Nice selections of whiskeys.

Bok Choy was done perfectly and enjoyed chicken sandwich.

Honestly though, I wasn’t impressed with the half chicken - the skin was dark brown not golden colored and their wasn’t any taste because it seemed over-cooked and the meat just wasn’t juicy. I know I’m probably in the minority because so many people rave about the fried chicken, it just wasn’t to my liking.

On the banana cream pie, I wished it had more of the Haupia (coconut) taste.


I would return to the restaurant because the atmosphere, bar and select other foods were great.

Ma'Ono is fantastic for a lively, delicious brunch. The fried chicken, soup, and standard brunch fare are all tasty and consistently good. This is a lively place so good for groups and kids. Maybe not the best for a quiet romantic place for brunch, but that is a tiny drawback.

Ma’Ono is one of my favorite places to go to when I’m hankering for fried chicken. The fusion of Hawaiian and Korean cuisine is right up my alley. These guys have been around for awhile, but the quality is still top notch and did not disappoint.

Overall experience was good. The only reason why I am not rating them higher is because there were no vegetarian options for dinner. Our one poor guest had to eat the mac salad appetizer and ask them to leave out the meat in the fried rice appetizer.

Their “famous Fried Chicken” was over-breaded, over-cooked, & over-rated. Sides were pricey and not delicious. We usually like to order good tasting food unlike that what we can make & serve at home. Especially if it’s pricey. 3 adults, 3 different entree dishes (including a very average burger), and all 3 disappointed.

As with most "energetic" restaurants, it was too damn loud, but the food was great and the carafe of guava mimosas was delightfully heavy on the bubbly.

My team took our factory partners out while they were in town, and Ma’ono not only was able to accommodate 11 people easily, but the service for such a large group was on point as well. Lots of chicken and whiskey was had, and everyone had an awesome time!

Please advise that this establishment no longer offers bottomless mimosas or biscuits. Has lost its value in my opinion

We are regulars here, but will not be regulars anymore. While we love the people there and the service is good, the quality of the food has gone down significantly. First, they changed the fries they serve there to a cheaper, fast-food kind of fries. Next, they have changed their hot sauce used with the chicken and on every table to more of a pepper sauce. They’ve eliminated the quarter-bird and it seems as though the quality of the chicken that they use has also gone down. Wish this was different, but it’s just not the case.
