“Best fish tacos on Maui”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

I've been here numerous times and I'm gonna keep coming back. First of all, the staff are friendly and want to make sure you enjoy your meal. You get inside and the decor is maui surfstyle- with tables and benches shaped like surfboards! The menu has a great selection of fish, tacos, burgers, and sandwiches. All of the fish is fresh and local caught. I've had the tacos, the spicy wasabi fish burger and the salads. Their spicing is outstanding, the food is prepped quickly. I've only had to wait a few times and that's when the place is packed. If you get the tacos, once you order they bring you out this plate with one taco, piled high. Then they set it down and say, you're next one is on the way out. Two big fish tacos with chunks of fish spilling out, what a deal.

“Two thumbs up from the gluten free & egg allergy crowd!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

Really enjoyed the fish tacos. My daughter has an egg allergy & she loved these fish tacos (cold slaw made with coconut milk vs mayo or egg based products). Wife is gluten free & she enjoyed the fish tacos too (corn tortillas). Sometimes tuff for our family to find a decent place to eat. We'll defintely come back here!!!

“The best.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014 via mobile

Their fish tacos are to die for. We'll be back next year. We were told how good they are, but we never imagined they could be that fresh and good.

“Best fish and chips ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

The place is surprising... Small, no liquor license, order at the counter and they ask you to share your table. We had a carry out. Fish tacos and fish and chips. Both orders were delicious! Fish and chips with Ono was simply superb! Perfectly battered, crispy and flavorful! If you are not a big eater fish tacos can serve 2 people! If you are in Kihei do not miss!
