Located in a strip mall, this place resembles a Taco Bell. But the food - well, let's just say it is nothing like Taco Bell. They are known for their fish tacos - you get 2 in an order. They were huge and very filling. Very casual and budget friendly. Highly recommend.

Food is good and hot when served. Be prepared to wait for your servings, as this is a popular spot. We ate here twice

Have been eating fish tacos at the Paia Fish market so wanted to try something new. Saw this place on TripAdvisor saying that they've got some really good fish tacos so gave it a try. Their fish tacos weren't great but not bad either. I'd say it's just ok. It's big with some kind of mango salsa on top. What... More

There are lots of these chain restaurants in Hawaii and many are not so good (my opinion). This place is clean, (the owner was out cleaning tables) and the prices were about the same as other places (a little expensive). Maui is known for a dish called Poke. Poke is a raw fish over brown rice with different sauce and... More

Not fancy at all with surfboard seats at long tables, indoor and outdoor seating in a strip center, order at the counter, no alcohol served, very casual. The place was busy the entire... More

We dropped in after driving the road to Hana. Hit it around 4pm, no crowd, seated immediately and had our food in a few minutes. The mango salsa on the fish tacos was great. We split our order with fish tacos and fish and chips, both were well prepared and delicious. Enjoyed watching north shore surfing videos on their big... More

Great kids menu which the fish & chips and mac & cheese were both very good. Fish tacos were great and just as good as all the reviews say they are. Grilled Mahi-Mahi was another good choice. They also have a good selection of drafts beers and other drinks. Highly recommended - would go there again
