Welcome to Helena's

Serving traditional, local Hawaiian food since 1946 this family-owned business has impacted locals and tourist alike around the world. Come dine with us and experience the spirit of aloha with our ohana!

In 1946, Helen Chock opened the doors to Helena's Hawaiian Food, a humble eatery on North King St. in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Over the past 64 years Helena's Hawaiian Food has been serving the local community quality Hawaiian cuisine. In 2000, the James Beard Foundation awarded Helena's Hawaiian Food the Regional Classic Award. Helena's is one of a handful of restaurants in Hawaii to receive this distinctive award. After nearly 55 years, the restaurant was relocated to its current location on 1240 N. School Street.

Helena's remains the simple and unpretentious eatery it was over 6 decades ago. The restaurant is now run by Helen's grandson, Craig Katsuyoshi.

Helena's Hawaiian Food started off as a business just like many. Over the years, the founder raised and taught her children the value of hard work, perseverance and passion. This business not only became a legacy of her own, but one for her entire family. At the same time, it became a fixture in the local culture and a place that helped to cement together the community that it served.

Countless families have gathered to share time together with food from this restaurant on their plates and celebrate this style of cuisine that is less and less common.

We are happy to have each and every customer and look forward to many momre years of business.
