There is always a long line but there are so many things to see while you're in line and once you tell them what you want, it goes quickly. So many local favorites to choose from!

This is a take out food place. The sushi is great. The raw fish is awesome. They sell bentos and all kinds of good local food. The prices are a little high but very popular with the local people.

The cone sushi is the best on the island. All of the poke selections are great. Be prepared to wait in line. It moves quickly and the food is worth the wait.

Well worth the drive where ever you are on the island. There's always a line but it's the best place to try "poke" for the first time. My favorite is the tako poke and the spicy ahi lomi style (the one they put on top the sushi rice). Everyone behind the counter is friendly and patient specially to the first... More

If you are looking for poke, snack food, or just a good lunch spot, this is the place to go. There's a line out the door, in fact, don't leave the door open, they want to make sure everything is kept cool and fresh. And good luck finding parking in the lot. Bought about 5 pounds of raw fish here... More

This family owned business never fails! My husband and I had returned from our trip to find that our gift certificate had expired the day before. We immediately called and whomever answered the phone said, "no worries, we will still take it." So happily we headed down on a Saturday and it was definitely bumpin, packed - line going out...

Go to this place and get some poke and fried noodles. Try the spam musubi everyone of the island loves. Small hole in the wall place but very authentic.

If you go on the weekend during lunch time, you may have to wait 20 minutes in line. The parking is really bad BUT the "bento" type food is worth the wait. The staff is also friendly which is a big plus for their business.

After friends recommended Tanioka's, we decided to go and find this place. Thanks to previous reviewers, we knew that the place is located next to Seven Eleven and we had to make an u turn. However, they don't have public restrooms. The nearest public restroom is down the block at Carl's Jr. There were heavy metro construction and finding a... More
