Very Good Poke

Umeke's is one of the best places to score some of the Big Island's best poke. This location specifically is the best if you are seeking air conditioning and more space, plus a full bar. The selection is pretty decent, albeit somewhat confusing if it is your first time ordering poke. The... read more

Local place that's good for poke and other things. Several locations. I'm not a fan of poke but teriyaki chicken, loco moco and other things are good too.

Delicious Poke and healthy servings. The lady loaded up my bowl. Several choices to choose from for a great price. I didn't get to try poke at any other places during our stay on the big island but from having been at Umeke's, I don't think I need to. Would definitely go back again.

Saw the reviews and decided to find Umekes. Walked in and saw a case of options so I wasn't sure what my choices were but the staff walked us through the options. You pick rice bowl contents and I picked the Ono with cucumber and spicy aioli. Have to say the Ono was cooked perfectly and the spicy aioli was... More

We came here for lunch when we couldn't get into the Kona Brewing Company which was teaming with tourist. This was such an amazing find! We each ordered a bowl which comes with one side and your choice of rice/brown rice/quinoa, along with a fish. We had an ono, tempura, and a katsu fish. It was all so good. The... More

Umekes opened a new restaurant in the Industrial Park close to the airport. Great place to go especially if you have friends flying through from another island on their way back to the mainland. They have great poke, good fresh fish and still serve dinners with plastic forks and chop sticks. Note Brown rice or Quinoa is a $1 extra.... More

We have been going to the takeout Umekes for quite a while and finally decided to try their new sit down restaurant. I wish we had not waited so long to try it! The poke bowls were excellent of course. The grilled mahi mahi was also excellent. It comes with your choice of 3 sauces (we had the garlic). It... More

One of the things I was looking forward to on my trip to Kona was eating tons of poke and Umekes didn't disappoint. I went there multiple times on a week trip...sooo good. Even with a line it moves fast (I got it to go) and your in and out. For $11 even you can get a poke bowl that... More
