About Us

Founded in 2012, Ke Nui Kitchen calls the fabled North Shore of Oahu its' home. Chef Thomas Naylor comes from a long line of restaurateurs and chefs, forging new takes on classic dishes and combining local ingredients and new techniques. His focus is on food first, utilizing his team and personal knowledge to produce unparalleled dishes and menu design. While cuisine is his primary focus, it's the action and the big day that we savor. The guests dressed to perfection, the hours of coordination, preparation, and the gravitas of the moment is what drives us to cherish this industry.

"This is a loving couples ultimate day, and to be an integral part of their experience, gives me the motivation to continue in this very challenging profession. We understand that every event is unique and that keeps us at the forefront of our craft, taking cues from our clients and staying in tune with new flavor combinations and presentations. Let us make your vision come to life." Thomas Naylor
