“Can't believe all the reviews”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

I eat fish and chips everywhere I go. This was down near the bottom. An hour later and I still have the flavor of grease. The fish and batter had little flavor. The tartar sauce was barely more than mayo. The only positive thing I can say is that it was reasonably priced in an area where everything is pretty expensive.

“Frozen food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014 via mobile

Disappointed it the food here. I got the chicken basket, breading was terrible. My husband said the fish wasn't good either. It's just a walk up window. There are tables and chairs outside by the Kings Shops lake. We enjoyed watching the Koi fish on the lake. That was probably the best part of the experience.

“Not a bad stop, A good afternoon snack”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

A little on the greasy side, but the batter is nice on the fish. Tempura veggies are tasty. Hubbie wasn't impressed with the calamari. The outdoor dining overlooking the koi pond was a pleasant surprise, but the scavenger birds that hovered around were not appreciated by the kids.

“Don't miss!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014 via mobile

Fish and chips are probably my favorite meal (perhaps the result of being 1/2 Irish and 1/2 English). I've traveled all over the US and much of the world - sampling the fish and chips as I go. This little hole in the wall on the back side of the King's Shops in Waikoloa is definitely in my top 10 - the fish is in the top five. They use the "fish of the day," but it has been Mahi Mahi each time I've eaten there. The fish is awesome! The fries are good, but more average. Don't let the small size of the shop fool you. If you like great fish and chips, this is the place in Hawaii.
