Honu Tiki Bowls, Vienna

Hawaiian fast-food experience with an ceramic aloha.


A different way to enjoy healthy fast food. Far away from the urban mainstream, founder Kaspar Kunz has brought a sustainable and contemporary idea for a take-away chain to the Austrian capital city. And done it several times as well, currently at five sites in Vienna.

In the Honu, everything revolves around poké, a traditional Hawaiian dish served in an authentic tiki bowl. Here the guest can put together their own bowl from a variety of fresh and regional ingredients, to eat at the Honu or simply take away.

The Honu also went for regionality in the interior design concept with the Viennese architecture studio Archiguards and Atelier Karasinski. Tinted mirrors, underlighting, Indian fans, pink neon and hand-painted details create an extraordinary atmosphere in a small space. Soft-shaped tables and benches are reminiscent of islands in the sea, along with the “cheerful” ambience, evoked by warm colors and natural materials. With each Honu, the architects and designer have created real little urban oases, as the pick-up points are lovingly described by managing director Kunz.

Even our rounded SOAP wall ceramic says ALOHA. In a glossy honey finish, with a little bit of a bamboo look and yet with that unmistakable charisma that welcomes guests to the large ceramic counter. It is a fixed and important part of the overall interior design concept, provides orientation and invites the visitor to order their first Tiki Bowl. We say: E’ai kaua!
