Don't miss this dive!

We stopped in to grab some poke to go as well as some drink fixins. We felt like we'd already eaten a lot of rice on the trip, so we skipped it and just got a container of poke, straight up. Quality of the fish seemed very good, it had great flavor, and although not cheap it was absolutely a... read more

Not in the greatest location and not at all swanky, but if you love poke this is the place for you. Many different types to chose from and the staff is very nice. We took our and headed up the road to enjoy it at a beach spot. Ask for chopsticks and napkins, grab some drinks, and get a little... More

Best poke bowl in the middle of nowhere. Go to the back and pick your poke, give the girl your tray and she'll scoop it over warm rice!

The best poke I've found in the time living in Oahu was at this little shop. It is phenomenal. Walk in and go straight to the back to order some.

I have had better limu poke but I have to give them a 3 because the woman that was serving the poke was really nice. The customer she served before me bought the last of the limu poke. When I asked if there was more she said that there was no more but that she would make fresh limu for... More

Best poke I ever had. I've tried poke on the other islands and was never a fan. Tried it at the superette and it was delicious (shoyu poke). Fish was so fresh and tender. It was not fishy at all. Make sure to get rice and fish with each bite. The rice helps balance out the saltiness if the poke.

I learned about the Kahuku Superette from a YouTube good reviewer, and I was struck by how well he seemed to enjoy it. Fast forward a few months later, and driving back from the North Shore, I happened to notice the Superette out of the corner of my eye. The ladies in the store were very helpful, and I chose...

Literally, the best poke on the island. Had friends who stayed on Oahu for a while and made it clear I had to get here. I rolled up looking at what I thought was just a very simple market. I got the shoyu style and have been craving it ever since! I'll Never have tuna that fresh again!

Don't let the outside appearance scare you. Located next to all the food trucks, I actually preferred walking in here for some of the best poke I have ever tasted! It had a nice kick to it, and the fish itself was very fresh and for a great price too! I would definitely have gone back a few more times... More

I read about this place on tripadvisor. All the other reviews says that this place has great poke! When I come to Hawaii I always try and find good seafood. So of course I decided to stop here one day. We were staying up in the North Shore area and had already driven passed this place once. Of course we... More
