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

Our visit to Kauai wouldn't be complete without a stop to get poke. Perhaps the most expensive on the island but well worth the price. Another great place is Koala Fish Market.

So just after you fly into Kauai, drive directly to Fish Express (5 minutes from the airport). Enough said. This place is more of a fresh fish market than a restaurant as there are no tables.

We didn't know what to order or expect. An employee pointed us in the right direction and it was the best grill plate on the island. Yum!

Loved the choices of fresh dishes. So tasty. Must try spicey Poke Bowl. Hawaiian fried fish with potato salad and greens. Not your mamas potato salad or greens but very delicious.

everytime i land on Kauai I stop here for their poke - which is raw ahi tuna in delicious oils, onions, seaweed, or tamari. And the smoked marlin can be fantastic! Great prices on fish, a must stop once landing, then you have great fish for a meal.

There is no place to eat your meal and you are ordering from a fresh fish market. WHO CARES! The plates are about $10 and you get some super fresh fish and rice and salad. I had the ahi the first time and we went back and got the ono. Both were flaky, tender, and tasty. Just find a spot... More
