Very tasty poke bowl with delicious brown rice. The place got very busy even though we came during off hours. Friendly staff. No open on weekends. Unfortunately, we did not discover this place until one of our last days in Kihei. Search it out. You won't regret it. They also sell fresh fish.

Great lunch place that also sells fresh fish. Seating is limited. Very casual. Many varieties of poke.

This is an out of the way hole in the wall in South Maui, a bit hard to find but worth the trouble. If you like poke then this is manna from heaven, the poke bowl is a bed of rice, some greens and a generous amount of your choice of poke. They also have some other stuff on the... More

Can be easily overlooked because it's pretty hidden. Still that doesn't mean that it's gonna be empty but in fact very packed during lunch. Food looks pretty fresh with most items ranging from $10-$20. You can also buy fresh poke there as well. It's a pretty small place so take out is better. Parking could be hard to find as... More

You will not find a place with fresher food at a cheaper price. Everything here is fresh and portions are generous. Do not pass up the poke bowl. It's the best on the island. Fried fish just melts in your mouth. This is my go-to lunch place every time I visit Maui. Food is made to order and never had... More

Love to eat here whenever we are on Maui. The fresh fish a delicious and cooked very well, moist and delist. If you like your fish raw, their poke bowl is amazing, four types of poke on rice with a little wasabi and a side of ocean salad, it is big and very reasonable. The food quality is as good... More

Place is amazing. Huge Poke Bowls with 4 different fish types...ended up sharing there was so much and only $14. One of best meals we had all week and came back for the seafood chowder the next day. Also great, but the Poke is out of this world. Must go and reasonable price for what everything costs in Maui.

Thank Joseph M
