I have to agree with the other reviews that say this place has the best fish and chips, even compared to those in the UK or Ireland. We loved the fish and chips and onion rings. I got ahi and my family got ono fish and chips. I would go with the ono for a purer fish and chips experience... More

I eat here at least once a week. The Ono (or Wahoo, if you prefer) is my absolute favorite. Thick, buttery like flesh, steaming inside a fried to perfection panko coating. If you order it to go, they will take it out early so it wont' be dry when you get to where you're going. But why travel...this fish is... More

This is the place for fish n chips. Not a fancy place but you will love and appreciate the VERY FRESH FISH and chips. They usually have Ahi, cod, Magic and Tombo. All white meat. They make awesome fish burritos too. Try it. You will be hooked after one bite.

My friend and I were in the area and decided to try the restaurant, which was a little hard to find for GPS. The restaurant's address is 15-2670 Pahoa Village Rd. The restaurant reminded us of a fast food establishment with no ambience. But the fish is fresh. We had the fish burrito and fish and chips combo (fish with... More

Found this place in Pahoa even though the Tripadvisor gps coordinates are incorrect. I had to call the restaurant for the correct location. They are located at Pahoa's only roundabout, behind the gas station, at the Malama shopping center. Their fish is fresh like the name says. Today's choices were ono (wahoo), mahi mahi, salmon and cod. Choose any one... More

Fish and chips, tacos and burritos here are all delicious! The first time I bit into one of their huge burritos, I was surprised by the crunch, and quickly fell in love! They prepare the fish for the burritos as they do for the fish and chips, resulting in the yummiest, crunch inside a soft flour tortilla! And not only... More

We ran into some locals and they directed us here to eat. It was a nice "hole in the wall" place in a strip mall. Fish was made fresh as we waited. It was very good and a decent price.

This place is relatively new and a real gem. Would love to write a review to let people passing through Pahoa towards Volcano National Park about it.
