I found it on trip advisor before I visited Honolulu . My friends all wanted to have poke and it is a great local shop that lots of people come and go all the time. Lots of varieties and great food for the prices. Will be back again next time !

Great service from telephone ordering to delivery and setup. What tops this is the food was just as great.

We visited this market while doing a food tour with Lanai Tabura. The owners were amazing and the food was just as wonderful. This is a must see when in Oahu!

This was the 2nd time we stopped by this gem. You know if the locals love the place, it's gotta be good! It was a bit of a challenge finding it this time around due to the construction of the light rail. The second get inside, you'll be greeted with a friendly atmosphere! The people here are friendly and have... More

Picked up lunch on the weekend on the way to the field(soccer). As usual very busy but the line goes fast and the food is worth it. My favorite is the salmon patties, very tasty. Highly recommend and again help support the local places affected by all the construction.

Parking sucks with only 7 parking stalls, and the stalls are too close together so your doors and fenders get dinged by other cars. Too expensive for the amount of food on each plate. Try POKE ON THE RUN at the bottom of lehua street in pearl city. Best fresh tasty raw fish, poke, and lunches, seafood, etc for less... More

Tania's Seafood and Catering is an icon in the town of Waipahu. Presently a little hard to get to due to major road and new elevated railway construction, but once you get there, you won't be disappointed. Parking is at a premium, but the owner's hire security people to assist with traffic woes. All in all the owner's run an... More

Tanioka's is well known to the residents of Oahu but is off the beaten path for most tourists. If you enjoy poke, you owe it to yourself to pull out the GPS and find Taniokas. Their main location in Waipahu has seafoods, bento boxes (variable availability), and a variety of Poke. A second location at the Patty Mink Park has... More

My wife and were in Honolulu for a cruise and we stopped into Tanioka's with some local friends for some authentic sea food as this is known as a "local favorite". The line was out the door which is always a good sign. Although the line as long, it went pretty fast and before too long we were ordering our... More

They had a limited selection of poke and food. I tried the fried ahi sushi, it was okay. Also tried the spicy ahi, it was mediocre. Compared to Big Island poke, it was not as tasty. Heard good things about this place and was kind of disappointed.
