Incredible fresh fish

This place doesn't look appealing from the outside but absolutely the freshest fish. This is your typical whole in the wall looking place. 1 person took our order and than cooked the fresh fish fillets. I had the Mahi and tuna with chips. It's incredible!!! Don't miss this place.

This is some of the best fish and chips that I have eaten. We visit the Pahoa Fresh Fish at least once a month.

Big ol' chunks of battered fresh fish with a pile of waffle fries and a side of cole slaw. BROKE da mout.

Best food we've had on the island. Fish and Chips was simple and fresh... and a great value at under $10 for a huge portion. Definitely stop at this "hole in the wall" if you're within 50 miles of Pahoa.

What a wonderful little place. We went back again and again and again! Even met another tourist who had found this place on Tripadvisor. They had gone to a place up the street, was disappointed.

Freshest fish you could ask for without catching it yourself. Ahi, Ono, or Mahi the day we were there. Delicious.

There's not a lot of choices of places to eat in Pahoa. So comparatively, this place is good. However, it could be a lot better. Its a dive inside with unused equipment sitting around taking up a lot of the indoor sitting space. No service. Unknown what kind of oil they use... worried it might be soy, which is both... More
