Good price good food

Not really what I expected. For me the place is not that inviting but the foods are great. I had the garlic chicken and my fiance had the tuna katsu. We both enjoyed our meal and I was really full. I love the fries and those hanging designs in the window. Good price, good food.

After a day of kayaking and snorkelling at the sandbar, my friends and I decided to come here for a snack upon a recommendation from a friend. It's nothing fancy but food was good. Fish tacos were ok. Definitely get the crab sandwich which I've heard sells out pretty often. We were lucky to have tried it today as we... More

Opposite to the average restaurant in Honolulu prices are like other US city average. Food was, maybe the best seafood I ever tried after my granny. Once you get there you will see mostly locals, and of course locals can't be wrong. I didn't liked to much the decorations it looked old, but anyway you want to have a great... More

Went there twice on our trip to Oahu already to try different poke they have to offer. You purchase it by weight. They have several flavours of poke that I'm sure you will enjoy. The place is a small place that seems a bit out of date but don't let that fool you. Great flavours! Get it to go and... More

Don't be fooled by the store front or the location....this is one of the best seafood spots on Oahu. The crab stuffed ahi roll (flash fried, not a true sushi roll) is exceptional! As are the homemade sauces and excellent norikake blends. Poke is stellar, and they offer a variety of smoked fishes....the marlin was delightful. Pastele fries are also... More

We were in Hawaiil for only 4 days and ate at The Fresh Catch twice. The variety of poke is outstanding and the prices are great too. We were new to eating poke and they let us try several different ones until we found the ones we wanted. One day we had poke and the next visit was a plate... More

I seriously died and went to poke heaven as soon as I stepped in the door. Although it looks like nothing special from the outside (and let's be honest, a little ghetto), inside is every poke lover's dream. All the fish is fresh, and you can definitely taste the difference between their's and Foodland's. Service here is awesome, and they... More

Great Poke! We ordered the spicy. Wish we had tried the Fireball... Spicy was good but next time... Had an Ahi sandwich with fries. All good. Recommended!

We tried poke for the first time here, per our local friends' advice, and it was unforgettable. So many different tastes and approaches to poke, and super-fresh too. The perfect combo of fish and rice spoke to the primeval Asian in me. A must-visit destination for us every time we come to Hawaii now.
