I was really looking forward to the Poke during our visit to Hilo. I was disappointed. Suisan served my least favorite Poke on the Big Island. It was fresh but poor preparation and average, at best, taste. I will not return.

Excellent fresh poke with multiple varieties. Many choices to pick from. Very generous portions with order of poke bowl. Very popular local place, Highly recommended.

Bought ahi tuna steaks here twice. Took them home and marinated and seared them on the BBQ. Amazing! Good selection of poke here as well. Highly recommend. This is not the exact location. It was off King Kamehameha Hwy.

Suisan is primarily a wholesale fishmarket, but you can also get take out with their simple counter service. Absolutely the freshest poke and sushi grade fish on the Big Island unless you happen to know a fisherman! They are open towards the end of the...More
