“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2015 NEW

Omg the Poke here is amazing! Stick to the fresh ahi. The calamari tasted like fried chicken. Take out only but totally worth eating in the car.

“Take Out Only, But its worth Taking Out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2015

This isn't your typical seafood restaurant. It's a fish market, that will fix you a take out of different kinds of fish. I had the macadamia nut encrusted Ahi with rice and potato salad. The fish was excellent. The potato salad was different, but also excellent. It's not a ton of food, but just enough. There is no seating there, so you'll have to take it some place else. They told us about a park a few blocks away, so we took it over there. They give it to you in Styrofoam containers, so it stays pretty warm. If you like good fish, this is the place.

“Best fish tacos on Kauai!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2015

Awesome place! These are the best fish tacos I've had on Kauai (and Maui)! Big pieces of fresh fish on each. Spicy ahi poke was great too. Really wanted to try chicken but that would've been too much food. We got our food then headed to costco for gas, ate in car while waiting in gas lines. Great last meal on the island!

“Fast, good take out food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2015

We ordered the Hawaiian plate. The pork wrapped in taro leaves tasted great. This is a great place to visit after you land at the airport. Wide selection of poke and other dishes to choose from. No tables or chairs exist in or near the restaurant.

“Quick amazing lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2015

Swing by this shop as soon as you leave the airport. No place to sit but enjoy the amazing food in the car. It is totally worth it!
