Best Fish Ever

This take-out place served the freshest fish we had on our one-week vacation. Prices are reasonable, great selection of poke, like abalone poke. I had ahi fish tacos...the best.

I guess my expectations were too high, given all the great reviews. I ordered Poke (which I found too salty), and the famous Macadamia Nut Crusted Ahi, with potato salad. The potato salad had more mayonnaise than potato (and the potatoes were shredded?!), and the Ahi (which I also found a bit salty) had some nuts on top, not actually

I'm from Oahu so pretty picky about Poke since we have a lot of great poke places as well. I'm glad that we stopped here for lunch. The garlic shrimp was good they sell it by the piece, the spicy lobster and spicy ahi and crab poke were excellent. The tako poke was okay I don't like the meat cut... More

we stopped by for lunch and had the macadamia nut crusted Ahi. The meal comes with rice, potato salad or green salad. The potato salad was actually a noodle salad with one piece of potato, not what I expected, but good flavor. The fish was very good with a passion fruit sauce. Good place to pick up a meal and...

Omg the Poke here is amazing! Stick to the fresh ahi. The calamari tasted like fried chicken. Take out only but totally worth eating in the car.

This isn't your typical seafood restaurant. It's a fish market, that will fix you a take out of different kinds of fish. I had the macadamia nut encrusted Ahi with rice and potato salad. The fish was excellent. The potato salad was different, but also excellent. It's not a ton of food, but just enough. There is no seating there,... More

Awesome place! These are the best fish tacos I've had on Kauai (and Maui)! Big pieces of fresh fish on each. Spicy ahi poke was great too. Really wanted to try chicken but that would've been too much food. We got our food then headed to costco for gas, ate in car while waiting in gas lines. Great last meal... More
