Fresh fish and great service

My local friend told me that Uncle's was one of his two favorite restaurants and I can see why. The location is a little tricky, but that means the restaurant stands on its own merits, not those of being easy to get to. I had the mahi mahi lunch special and the fish was so fresh and tender, served... read more

The fish is super fresh as Uncle's is located next the Honolulu fish auction. There is an extensive menu. Everything that I have ordered is very good. My favorite so far is the Ono. The staff is very friendly and attentive.

My husband brought me here because he said that I had to have the Poke Tower. As someone who grew up in Hawaii, I love poke prepared almost any way. But with guacamole and tortilla chips? I was skeptical so I had try it. I did like the preparation but I think my favorite way to eat poke is still... More

we usually go to Nico's and thought we would try this as a alternative. So glad we did. Upon entering, the atmosphere and waitstaff invited you in making you feel welcomed. Great selection of food that was delicious and fresh. A definite repeat in the future.

We had Uncles Special and steamed clams. The special was a small piece of fish, two small deep see scallops, an three normal shrimp for 29.. Not worth it

I am sad to say I have never been here before, and was quite pleasantly surprised. Been going to Nicos for years, and always saw Uncle's, but never ventured. For those of you out there like me, DON'T make the same mistake I did! We stopped in and had oysters on the half shell (awesome!), and I had their fish... More

Excellent location and the less touristy of the the two (Nico's). I had their Parmesan Crusted Mahi Mahi which is one of their two most popular dishes according to the waiter. The fish was fresh, but the flavor of the dish as a whole was lacking. First time there so I understand there are good days and bad on food.... More

I dig this place. Waitstaff, servers, all are super kind. Great vibe! Food is delicious. I had the Steamed Monchong-Chinese Style, and it was a bit of heaven. Portion size was just right. My dish cost just over twenty bucks. Had I been hungrier, I would have added their Seafood Chowder. Next time...and that will be soon. :)

My wife had the opakapaka and she said it was good, but cojldve used a little more flavor. I tried it and thought it was great. The poke tower and fresh... More

We were lucky to "accidentally" find this place a few years ago and it's now one of our "must go back" favorites when on Oahu. We had seen the nearby Nico's on a TV show and wanted to try it but they were closed so we went to Uncle's instead and we're so thankful for that divine intervention! (We eventually... More
