About Us

Mel and Lynn Tanioka embarked on their business journey in 1978 in hopes to service the Leeward side of Oahu with fresh local seafood. With support from family, friends, blessings from above and a commitment to "Quality Foods with a Friendly Smile", Tanioka's is now an award winning "Local Style" eatery and "Best and Well Known" caterer in the State of Hawaii.

Tanioka's specializes in "local style" poke and seafood by using fresh island-caught fish and quality ingredients. Their menu is a fusion of many cultural flavors - Japanese, Korean, Filipino, Chinese, Hawaiian and American - making it a local and international favorite.

Tanioka's has established themselves as one of the best catering company in Hawaii. They cater for all types of events, including luaus, birthday parties, graduation celebrations, corporate functions, funeral services, and elegant wedding receptions. Customers can choose from a list of pre-set catering menus or create their own menu from our extensive list of Ala Carte dishes.
