Concierge at the hotel recommended Fish Express to purchase a fresh catch., which was Ono for us. Poke delicious as well. Very friendly and helpful staff.

We've been coming to Kauai for years - this market never disappoints - prompt service, the freshest fish, competitive prices. We always buy our fish here to cook back at the condo...My traveling companions that love poke rave about theirs. The only difficulty is the narrow parking lot when it is crowded.

I had the macadamia nut crusted grilled ahi with lemon dill sauce with rice and refreshing green and herb salad! DH and son also had excellent fish dishes. It is strictly take... More

My husband had the 3 piece chicken/3 piece shrimp lunch which was served with rice. Fried but nonetheless he liked it. I ordered fish tacos and was more than I could eat. At least 4 oz. fish on...

Our poke did not make it out of the parking lot, it was that good. Blackened ahi was awesome, the rest of the plate was not. Rice was rice but greens need some sort of lubricant. Organization of order in middle, pay at left, pickup at right was frustrating for some of the people ordering around us. Also, wrapping a... More

The food here was really great! I ate here twice during our stay. The price is really good for the quality of food you get.
