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... read more

Love this place. My family's favorites are limu poke, spicy ahi and tako. Always a must-visit when we go to Oahu. Thanks Tanioka's!

The poke here is made with fresh fish! The flavors amazing! The only draw back is sitting in the traffic to get there. But it was well worth it.

Tanioka's is an Island favorite location for poke(all styles of seafood chopped and seasoned Hawaiian style), Bento(Japanese box lunches), but their signature cone sushi is the best there is! It's the kind of sushi that was made "in the olden days" in Hawaii. Large cones--not the dinky Japan-style inari. If you go anywhere near lunch time...expect to stand in line.

Bento plates are great. You go though the line and pick up the poke and seafood that you want. Along the way don't forget to pick up a few bento boxes and drinks. Always busy always good.

Don't expect a sit down dinner. This is good local fare you take away. We went in and picked up mikali chicken, fish cakes, fried chicken and garlic chicken. The fish cakes were delicious. I wish we would of got more. Our second favorite was the mikali chicken. Great flavor. The other chicken was good but a bit dried out.... More

Located away from the bustle of Waikiki this small takeout is well worth the drive. This is the ultimate plate lunch deli and it maybe insufficient to call it plate lunch. Each time I go there is usually some new item on the menu. The cuisine is always creative and inspired. Nursing gout I needed a vegetarian menu (not something... More
