From lunch to weddings: Serve your guests all your local favorites from Tanioka’s

Sponsored by Tanioka's Seafoods and Catering

It’s Wedding Week on HI Now, and If you’re looking for food that is sure to satisfy family and friends on your big day, Tanioka’s Seafoods and Catering does more than just lunch! HI Now host Kanoe Gibson is with chief financial officer Jasmine Tanioka and retail manager Kevin Akana to talk about its wedding catering services.

Tanioka’s is no stranger to catering, but when it comes to catering a wedding, the main difference is the emphasis on service and elegant presentation. With Tanioka’s, you can expect delivery service, buffet attendants, a full set up, upgraded chilled displays, roll top warmers, and upgraded display-ware and utensils.

The most popular wedding food items are prime rib, Asian braised short rib, garlic chicken, spicy ahi platters, fresh fruit and vegetable platters, furikake crusted fish and sweet potato haupia squares.

Tanioka’s will be offering complimentary wedding consultations for couples who mention Wedding Week or Hawaii News Now. For more information, contact Lauren or Gabrielle at Tanioka’s at 808-671-3779 or

Tanioka’s is also celebrating its 40th anniversary! To mark the occasion, Tanioka’s Charity Foundation will be hosting the fourth annual “An Evening of Hope,” Saturday, January 18, 2020, at the Four Seasons Resort in Ko Olina in honor of all that Hawaii’s hospitals do for the people of Hawaii. That being said, all proceeds from the event will be donated to support Hawaii Pacific Health hospitals: Pali Momi Medical Center, Kapiolani Medical Center, Straub Medical Center and Wilcox Medical Center.

About Tanioka’s:
Tanioka’s has been a family-run business for 40 years. Mel and Lynn Tanioka embarked on their business journey in 1978 in hopes of servicing the Leeward side of the island with fresh seafood. With support from family and friends, Tanioka’s has grown from a small 1,000 square foot space with a few volunteers to owning two side-by-side commercial buildings and employing over 130 employees.
