Pahoa Fish and Chips is our favorite place for fish and chips. The only restaurant we've found that comes close is Pond's in Hilo and the prices there are a good bit higher (but the atmosphere is also different). Pahoa FIsh is tucked in Malama Marketplace. It may not look like much, but believe me, the fish is awesome -... More

Stopped in about ten minutes before closing time. Customers after us were turned away. Service was curt, not the usual "aloha" spirit we were used to, but it may have been a long day for the two young women who were staffing the kitchen. Order at the counter -- usual fast food scenario. Quality of the fried fish was excellent.

Located in a small strip mall. They also sell fish. There fish rivals my own! Be sure to ask what is fresh. The salmon and cod were not but the Ono, Mahi Mahi and Ahi were. Get the five piece and share. Not crazy about the coleslaw and if they did fresh French Fries they would get a five star... More

Saw this one in the lonely planet and decided to check it out. I ate here twice and both times the food and service were excellent. The ladies behind the counter work like trojans and they are very clear beforehand which fish is available. They have mostly local fish like ono, mahi mahi and swordfish, as well as shrimps. The...

We ate here twice and the fish is fast and fresh. There is nothing here for atmosphere but for a quick meal it is definitely worth a stop.

My wife and I decided to make a run to Pahoa, and she had heard good things about Pahoa Freas Fish. It looks like a hole-in-the Wall place, but the fish was great.I had salmon fish and chips. Very good and plenty tartar sauce. Big portions, I had to take some home for later. I am told they also sell... More

Pahoa Fresh Fish is not only a place where one can by catch of the day fish retail but is a little gem of a fish and chips place. When I say little I mean what I say. Just a few sidewalk tables and bar stools at the ordering bar. The fish is prepared several ways but my favorite is... More

Located in an otherwise unappealling mall zone on the outskirts of Pahoa, this place seves f&c cooked to perfection. It is mainly a takeout outlet with just a limited dine-in seating (no table service), but their f&c are among the best I´ve ever had. Expect 10 to 15-minute wait if the place is crowded, ie if there is a party... More

Came to this hole in the wall looking for a quick dinner and was not dissapointed. I ordered the Ono and Shrimp combo, they came with waffle cut fries and every bite was terrrific. If this place wasn't 2600 miles away from my house I would come here at least once a week. Worth the trip no matter where you... More
