Ono fish and chips

from a small take out window at the back of the Kings Shops in Waikoloa Beach Resort area comes great fish and chips! good variety of fried options: fish, shrimp, calamari. also had a tasty fried pineapple with li hing powder that was a great finish to the meal.

The line was long but worth the wait. They had a good selection for a fish and chips place and eating along the lagoon/lake was pleasant. The entire family enjoyed their meals.

We enjoyed yummy fried mahi mahi, fries and slaw at a lakeside table with lots of colorful fish - very entertaining and relaxing after a busy morning shopping trip.

This is a little take-out spot in the Kings Shops in Waikoloa Beach Resort. We don't usually eat fish and chips but decided to try it based on reviews. Glad we did - it was very good. I recommend the Fish and Shrimp and Chips dinner. It's clearly a popular place as there was always a wait but the food... More

There is this little hole in the wall (literally) on the back side of King's Shops in Waikaloa called "Island fish and chips". The fish is the "catch of the day" - whatever fresh fish the fishermen in the area caught. One day it was Wahoo, another Mahi, another Ono. All was deliciously prepared deep fried in a light batter.... More

Catch of the day was Ono, very good. What we liked was the light battering which made for meaty & tasty pieces that actually tasted like fish. Reasonable prices for island fare. Give them a try.

This place is in the King's Shops, behind the main concourse with view of the lake. You order from a window and there is nice seating (open & covered) on the lake. There is no indoor seating, but its Hawaii!! The fish dishes are well prepared and there is a good variety of menu items. Serving sizes are also good,... More

This is a walk up, buy from the window, but the food is pretty good. And there is a decent variety of choices.

I've purchased fish meals from this place for years now. It's good...nothing out of the ordinary, but if you want something relatively quickly and not terribly expensive (as opposed to other offerings in the area), this is a fine place to go. This year instead of the fish in a basket meal I purchased the sandwich and liked the fish... More

It is what it is. After overpaying during your vacation at every hotel and restaurant you go to this is a refreshing option. Cost is appropriate, and there are no surprises with quality of food. They only do a few things, but they do them well. I for one appreciate that they cook each order as the order comes through.... More
