This is the first place we came to eat when we got to Hawaii. I think poke means raw because they had alot of raw seafood. I ate cooked food, can't do raw nothing. The roasted pork I had melts in your mouth. For a small place, the food packed a big punch. But you gotta go early, because everything... More

Went here for lunch on several recommendations. Every dish was outstanding. Lau Lau Plate, Kalua Pork, Poke Bowl. The Poke selection and quality is remarkable. The sides are the equal to the main dishes. I had the most sublime smoked mackerel macaroni salad. It was fresh flavorful and I will return just for that.

Really really tasty poke - fresh and delicious! The tripadvisor location didn't match the exact location, but don't worry just drive until you see the sign. You don't want to miss this Hawaiian specialty and especially not this one! We loved it and miss it already!

I finally tried the poke after reading the reviews about this place. I am not sure if it's something I would try again. Fish was still fish no matter how much marinade or seasoning it had, the calamari was very tasty, rice was ... rice, the tiny squid was also tasty and so was the potato salad. The garlic beans...

Stopped in after visiting Kahului'u beach where the turtles were out in force. We had the poke bowls. Spicy tuna and seaweed salad. Also spicy octopus plus chili/ garlic with California salad. Accompanied with an IPA. More than lives up to the hype.

When in Kona, my husband and I tried a wide variety of the local fare and this was the stand out. He doesn't really like fish, but loved the poke here because if how fresh it was. I love salmon and this was one of the best fresh salmon dishes I have ever had. The lady that served us was... More

This is a must stop!! Voted #1 on Yelp 2015 and #15 in 2016. This place will not disappoint. I may have eaten enough poke to give me mercury poisoning but well worth it in my opinion! Go!

Excellent food, make sure you go ready to stand in line. Very little parking. Well worth it if you like raw fish. Don't park in condo near by they are always watching.
