While I’ve had some decent fresh fish...I’ve had some that I wasnt sure about. It’s truly a local place, where they truly cater to locals. While I live in Kauai 3 months A year, they don’t go out of there way to help with questions....More

Read a lot of good review so we decided to pass by but woke me up with rude and arrogant guy by the counter. You have to google about poke before ordering otherwise no help but staring at you. Menu is so so.

I had a poki and was disappointed. I have much better on the Mainland. But if you go there for fresh fish and other seafood items they all looked really good.

We stay in a condo while on Kauai. This place, along with Foodland Supermarket, is my "go to" place for poke to keep in the frig at the condo. Its convenient, too, since it's right across the street from WalMart.

Siri took us here, that's really the honest truth about how we found this place. It's not the best location just off the highway, but boy: the food. I've always loved Sashimi and poke bowls have been the latest craze here in Sweden so I...More

Yes! If you are planning to stop in at the Fish Express on your way from Lihue Airport to Princeville, you can stop at Lydgate Park to eat. This is a nice stop, in general, if you have enough time to revisit while on your... More
