There were 4 of us and we could not eat the food once we got to the condo, rice was gummy, pork - no way, and shiny noodle grossed me out. Tried the Ahi and spicy crab poke - not for me.

Had plate lunch at the Fish Express, the display was overwhelming. We decided to try the pork instead of fish...the kalua pig and the laulau pig was absolutely delicious. Next time let's try the ahi pike...

Take away only. Local fish, sushi rolls and some pork choices. Check the hours, usually open til 5 but if wanting prepared make sure you go before 3 when the cooks leave for the day.

We stopped in during the afternoon and it wasn't too busy. We had a poke bowl, katsu fish with wasabi cream, and Pulolo. Our favorite was the katsu fish, and the Pulolo wasn't really our style. We ended up eating in our car since our condo was in Poipu so we didn't want to drive all the way back, it'd... More

We had poke and fish tacos. Poke was fantastic, but the fish tacos were bland. Cooked fine, but no seasoning or spice at all.

This is a great lunch spot! I believe they are closed for dinner and there is nowhere to sit and eat there - this is a take-out place. We got 2 fish dishes, shrimp cocktail, a fish wrap and Poke and it was great. We went across the street at ate at a picnic table at WalMart and it was... More

This is one of our first stops after picking up the rental car. Great fresh fish especially Monchung when available. We have never bought anything here that we didn't like, esp the potato salad. Also nice take out.

That pretty much sums it up. We had been told by the locals to check this little gem out and boy were they correct. We stopped by for lunch one day and had four people in our party. Everyone loved what they ordered and we plan to return again before we go home. If you are a fish fan make... More

Lobster salad was delicious and so were our plate lunches....fresh grilled kajiki (swordfish) and The Hawaiian Plate Lunch with savory pork lau lau and chicken long rice was plenty and good! The deli case is full of tempting items and we got a "spicy ahi bowl" for our son right before dropping him off at the nearby airport so he... More
