āina is a Hawaiian word meaning
the land which feeds us.
Aloha! ‘āina is a modern Hawaiian food concept that serves food with a distinct Hawaiian influence with a breath of the classics. Everything we serve is from the land and rooted in what the land has given to us. We cook with the seasons and with love, using fine dining techniques and local ingredients from the Bay Area as well as specially imported ingredients from Hawai'i. The ‘āina concept strives to be a love letter to the islands, by merging the attraction of Hawaiian-inspired cuisine, the warmth and hospitality of the island spirit with a refined sensibility and great service in a casual and welcoming atmosphere.
'āina is proud to partner with the following providers:
āina bento is inspired by the iconic Hawai’i plate lunch shops offering Hawaiian BBQ with Japanese sensibilities. 'āina bento is a reflection of the people and cultures of Hawai'i through food, which make Hawai’i such a fascinating melting pot. Our goal is to bring a little more Aloha to the Bay Area by sharing our food and love for all that is Hawai’i. All our food is sourced responsibly with respect for the land that feeds us. 'āina restaurant will continue to evolve as a story with depth and focus on Hawai’i and the Hawaiian culture as well as its unique ingredients and rich traditions.
