This was definitely a highlight of our trip to Hawaii. My wife and I love sushi and raw seafood and a friend recommended this place. It was absolutely worth it - a large amount of food for a fraction of the cost of sushi. Nice customer service too as we were unfamiliar with that type of restaurant. She also recommended... More

This place is our favorite out of all the food we've had on the big island. This is also some of the freshest fish that is prepared perfectly. We are not done with our trip, and we will be returning here at least one more time. The other perfect ratings don't lie: this is some of the best food in... More

If you have not tried poke, do it. If you already love poke, then you have to visit Da Poke Shack. They have a big selection of different flavors and you can sample a few to choose what you want. We sampled 4 kinds and all were awesome. The shack special seemed like a must have and with its honey... More

Went here because it was highly recommended by locals and was not disappointed! Had a big variety of different kinds of poke including multiple tuna poke to clams to squid. Had a really good quinoa seaweed salad option. Staff was super friendly and helpful with suggesting their favorite poke. We got the big plate that comes with 2 scoops of... More

Sure, there's only one person doing all the serving and cash but she's a one-woman-dynamo. The bowl comes with two scoops of poke, rice and a salad. Pick the brown rice--something magical in the combination. As for which poke to pick, yikes. They all look so good. I chose Dynamite (avocado aioli) and took home 1/2 lb of Pele's Kiss... More
