This was our first stop right from the airport after arriving in Honolulu for our recent vacation. I ordered a combo Smoked Tako Poke/Ahi Limu Poke. The tuna was amazing - very fresh with perfect seasoning. I didn't like the onions though - too coarsely cut, and I prefer Maui onion to white onion. Left a really "oniony" aftertaste. The... More

We stayed at the Ohan Waikiki Malia Hotel. Since we didn't have a car rental, we decided to walk there. It was an approximately 45-minute walk each way. It was worth it! The pokey was delicious and fresh just like it's store title. You're able to sample the choices to make your own combination!

The family stopped here for lunch after a visit to the aquarium. The inside reminded me of a deli counter with some picnic table for those who wanted to grab a quick bit. Since we had a toddler, I was a little unsure how this was going to go. There was a line that moved quickly, and I wanted to... More

Love this place. The fish is super fresh and the poke is yummy. Also have had the fish sandwich. If you like fish, this is the place to go. Very informal. More of a take out place than a restaurant.

I visit here at least twice a month to have LauLau, it is absolutely the best! They have the greatest variety of poke and they are all fantastic. The menu has good variety including different sandwiches. I enjoy the friendliness of the people and the family style dining environment!

Best variety of high quality fish used and nice selection of gourmet plate lunches. By far the most favorite is the salmon poke -- and i don't normally eat salmon.

I tried a different poke place every day while in Oahu. This was definetely the best. I picked 3 different "flavors", spent about $15 total and it was one of the best meals I had in a long time. It is not located in a touristy area, though it is close to a mall and not far from the main... More

My husband and I have never eaten raw fish before. The sweet lady at the counter helped us out and let us try many samples and gave us her recommendations for first timers. She was very helpful and kind. We had no idea what we were getting into but we got our food and it was phenomenal. Hands down our... More

This place needs to be ranked MUCH higher. Fresh Catch is a perfect title. We ate there 3x on this trip and every day it was the best Ahi. Soft as butter... This place is as casual as you get, but that is Hawaii. If you're looking for some fancy, overpriced tourist restaurant, this isn't your place. They have group... More
