If you like local food, this is real Central Oahu destination dining. Plan a trip to a beach or a park and stop here to pick up lunch first. It can be expensive if you get a bunch of poke, but if you like musubi and fried foods (excellent mochiko and garlic chicken) ordering ala carte can be quite reasonable.... More

Long lines but worth the wait. Plus, they have tons of workers to help move the lines. And, the food is great.

A friend of mine that used to live on Oahu recommended this place for poke. We decided to stop by for a late lunch, about 2:30. I hadn't read any reviews of this place so I didn't know they were closing at 3. Of course all that was left were a few varieties of poke and that was about all.... More

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 !

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
