PAI Honolulu

Restaurant Week Hawaii Menu Coming Soon!

PAI Honolulu’s guiding philosophy—and its name—comes from the Hawaiian word ho‘o.pai, which means “to excite, encourage, inspire and rouse.” Named Editor’s Choice for Best New Restaurant by HONOLULU Magazine, PAI takes inspiration from classic American, Asian and European dishes and puts a modern, imaginative spin on familiar flavors. Lee’s background as a food scientist and CIA graduate serves him well as he pairs ingredients and textures in surprising and playful ways. Diners can expect to experience a range of tastes inspired from cuisines around the world.



  • Lunch: Wednesday–Friday, 11am–2pm

  • Dinner: Tuesday–Saturday, 5pm–10pm (Last seating at 9pm)
