This place is the bomb! They have lots of great choices for a picnic somewhere- from an awesome grill that makes lunches until about 2:30pm (excellent food & value), to amazing, fresh pokes, smoked fish and lots of other salads & delights. This is NOT an eat-in place, so you get your food and go somewhere nearby to eat. The... More

Their fish was fresh and delicious and my daughter enjoyed the bento box of sesame chicken. This is a great spot to pick up lunch for the park or to enjoy as ayou visit another landmark.

We had the Lunch combo, which was a great deal - 2 of us ate for about $10. Fresh and really tasty poke salmon, kalua pok, Lau lau, and noodles. Highly recommended.

After reading all of the excellent reviews on here, I was very excited to try their poke. I've been to fish markets all over the island, but had never stopped here. We decided to do carryout of three different pokes for a picnic lunch at Lydgate Park (about 10 minutes away). My daughter, who does not like poke, got one... More

I've tried a lot of their lunches, and have never been disappointed, but I give them a 5 star review for their selection of fresh fish. A bit pricey, but I'm hoping they pay our fisherman top dollar for the best of the best fish and seafood. They truly have the best fresh fish on the island... hand down!

Stopped in twice during our four days in Kaua'i. The spicy and regular ahi poke were delicious, as was the kalua pork meal. The shoyu poke was just ok. There is no sit down area so pick some up on your way somewhere and have a picnic.

Great hole in the wall and a place you should hit right after you get off the plane on your way to your lodging. Great lobster and tuna. Seaweed salad, and kimchi everything. a delicious surprise.

Lots of variety from poke to plates to sandwiches of fresh fish. Very tasty and should be a definite stop for anyone seeking poke or fish. Service is quick. Beware it closes at 5 pm. Great lunch spot. Take out only.
