Mush try if you like poke or sashimi. Very fresh! Variety of fish choices & preparation. Good portions & awesome sides. Outside seating only. After, can stroll in nearby iconic Liliuokalani Park & Gardens.

Stumbled upon this place by chance. It was absolutely amazing. Fresh! Choices of different poke. The spice ahi poke was out of this world.

Shared a Poke plate for the two of us, making a very nice lunch. Many varieties available. We went with a milder selection that was still very flavorful.

This is the go-to spot for poke. It is not fancy. It is not trendy. It simply has the best poke on the island. I typically go for the spicy ahi bowl but they have many varieties of fish and different flavors. Portions are huge. I can never finish the one choice bowl by myself. They also have tons of fresh whole fish and seafood for purchase, beautifully laid out on ice when you enter. Amazingly, it never smells like fish inside. It is always crowded but the staff is extremely efficient so you never have to wait long. Prices are fair. You can take your items to go and eat outside at the picnic tables.

There are so many varieties of Poke they have. We ordered Poke bowl, unfortunately rice was run out in front of us. Waited 10 minutes or so during that, line was getting very long. But it was quite good even looking from the general raw fish eater (like me). My recomendation is soy source taste yellow tail and tuna.
