I am not a fan of tuna but I do love poke! We ordered the pele's kiss, wet Hawaiian, shack special, and the kalua pork hot plate. Everything was delicious but the hubs and I liked the pele's kiss the best. It was a little creamy and spicy. They give you rice and a side with the combo. The cucumbers,... More

I LOVED it. This little shack was one of my last stops and I so wish I would have found it earlier. It was soooo yummy and surprisingly affordable!

The manager's special poke was a delight as well as the "standard" poke varieties. That said, it is a shack-like small shop with only 2 picnic tables to seat customers. Great "take out" fare - just don't go expecting a restaurant look & feel.

Tried it four different times during our stay on the Big Island even though parking is tricky in their Kailua-Kona location. Had Pele's Kiss on two different occasions, the Dynamite and the Spicy Garlic Sesame - all very good.

this place has a lot of different varieties of poke to try, and the guy behind the counter seems genuine proud of his product. good place, not too much parking space though.

im not one for raw fish , but i would eat this raw fish all day long!. they catch it that day and have plenty of options of what you eat it with,. i would recommend getting the poke with avocado.

Stopped here for a snack, ended up being a meal as we could not stop eating. Tried 4 different versions of their poke. All were wonderful, but you just can't beat the spicy tuna. Calling all poke lovers.... this is the place to stop without ruining the budget.

The poke is great and prices are reasonable for a nice portion. We sometimes buy the spicey tuna poke and stir fry with rice. Nice quick and tasty dinner at home.
