“The freshest fish around.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Went here after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. We asked for a sampling, and were served a selection of 4 fish and 4 sides to share. We cleaned the plate!

“Straight up poke, that's it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

This is the most amazing poke you will ever eat. Shack is small but poke is amazing! Very reasonably priced as well!

“Just go! The search is over - best poke is right here.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Great, super fresh poke! Just get there early - at noon they had plenty of selection, by two at least a couple of great varieties were gone, or about to be. Excellent seaweed salad too. Seating is limited to two tables outside. However, for this stuff, we almost ate in the car - it's worth it.

When done, go get some Scandinavian Shave Ice for dessert. It will be a meal you won't soon forget!

“Best Poke!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Great poke, lots of choices, reasonably priced. Could have eaten here everyday! No sit down though only a couple of picnic tables outside and parking is a bit of a problem...but worth that little bit of aggrevation!

“Excellent poke!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

This place offers very fresh poke - with four - five varieties available every day. They also have salad options - the seaweed salad is very good. The "bowl" option for $9-10 is a good value. You get a good sized portion of the poke of your choice, the choice of their salads, and rice. You can also go the straight poke option, too. They have soft drinks, beer, and other beverages, too. There is outside seating available. We went there three times in week.

It is located right on Alii Drive in front of the Kona Bali Kai condos.
