“Best fish tacos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Excellent fish tacos here that are huge. We started eating them with a fork and knife when the chef came to our table and told us to fold them up to enhance the flavor. Boy was he right. Incredible flavors in these tacos. The mango salsa is the best part. Highly recommend this place for lunch if in the Kihei area.

“Good place to eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

The food, service and prices are good. We had the fish tacos which were good but not our favorite. There are other locations with better fish tacos.

“Good but vastly overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

You get two fish tacos for about $12 that are interesting. They are made with a variety of ingredients including coleslaw and a coconut milk type of dressing that we like but not everyone might. The fish is tender but a tad overcooked. Overall not bad if you are hungry and want a quick and filling lunch at bench style seating. More than enough for two people with an average appetite to share. The owner stopped by to give us a pressured spiel that left me with the slight feeling of being at a car dealership. He did not really talk to us, more at us. I think having been mentioned on CNN and having such good reviews on TripAdvisor may have gone to his head a little.

“Awesome Fish Tacos!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

My spouse and I were here on vacation and searched online for the best local restaurants in Maui. After reading the reviews we had to give it a try. The food was awesome! We tried the fish tacos and they were the best I ever had. Very large portions and filling... Two was more than enough!
