Went around 12 for lunch and they were already out of hamachi and salmon, so we opted for spicy ahi and honey garlic ahi. For sides we got spicy crab salad and edamame. My husband and I shared a 2 entree 2 side plate and...this was plenty for us. The spicy ahi was amazing as was the crab salad. My hubby loved the honey garlic ahi. Just wish they would plan better and have more hamachi and salmon prepared especially seeing as they are incredibly popular options!More

We are on a multi-island poke' quest (see our other posts) and are wondering if we can continue. Fresh, high quality fish and perfect seasonings. There could be no better place than this, Also had some room for ono - wow. And if the highest...quality wasn't enough, the prices are the lowest we have seen. Take it from someone who has pursued the ultimate poke' in many places. If you are also a fan, you must, absolutely must come here. Mahalo, MahaloMore

This famous fish market always serves freshest fish. Shipment of fish is delivered at the back of the store. which is directly at the bay. Poke is a must, and we can pick any variety. They all are very fresh and delicious. Because we did...not immediately, the rice turned hard.More

Great location down in Hilo bay by park, golf course and hotels. Great to pick up some poke and go grab a seat in park and enjoy Hilo bay. I got spicy poke and a aloha maid drink and enjoyed the area. There fresh fish...looked amazing as well but did not get any.More

For the freshest and best tasting poke on the Big Island, head to the Suisan Fish Market in Hilo :). This is a very popular place during the lunch hour, so it’s a good idea to arrive a bit early so as to avoid the...crowds of locals and visitors (plus to ensure that you have the best selection of daily offerings). Note that everyone has to be screened for temperatures and that only 4 people are allowed inside here (= a big plus in the time of COVID!). Everything is really ono at Suisan... enjoy!More

We had read and heard about Suisan Fish Market and knew we had to go. We knew that it can get crowded and parking can be tough. We ended up parking on the closest side street next to the park. Yep, the inside is what...you can expect of a fish market but things are quite orderly and they have many types of fish to choose from. Instead of getting a poke bowl or salad we just went with the protein and ordered 2 different types of poke. I didn't need to waste my money on carbs anyway. As this was 11 months ago I don't remember what type of fish we got, but whatever we did get was excellent.More

Very good poke. Super popular with locals. Expect a line. But most importantly, order the spicy lobster. Incredible.

They have wonderful selection of fresh, hawaiian caught fish. You can't go wrong picking up some fresh fish and having your own barbecue at your Airbnb.

There is always gluten in regular poke since it contains SOY SAUCE.
