Happened upon this place by accident thanks to Yelp. BEST decision! Market like atmosphere- order at the counter - everything is fresh and can be made to order. Several large picnic tables inside to share. We had the special on Saturday- sautéed shrimp and rice. We also had the poke fried rice, tako poke, shoyu poke and the garlic poke.... More

Two things. First, great variety of poke. Everything from the traditional soy to a sweet/spicy coconut to even a smokey flavored one. Second, the staff was super helpful and offered many samples to help me pick the perfect poke! Will definitely go again!

I just tried their Pastele Stew and it is very filling and delicious. Couldn't finish eating all of it ... so the rest (half) will be dinner tonight.

Inexpensive seafood at its best. Poke bowls, Hawaiian plate, beef stew, or my favorite: Seared Ahi plate. For friendly service, fresh foods, and casual seating, get a plate lunch that satisfies your tummy😀

The poke served here is really good, at least the ones I tried like Ahi limu and salmon. They have a huge variety too! Haven't eaten their plate lunches so can't comment on those. Took a point off because their rice is kind of awful most times, dry and hard like only partially cooked, or placed in the warmer too... More

As a local boy of Hawai'i, this place would get 3 stars but since my friend who was visiting from the mainland US enjoyed it so much, it deserved the 4th. The Ahi Katsu is a must! The sauce they drape it with makes it delicious! But the only drawback was that there was way too much breading. Being on... More

We've had a lot of poke in the islands over the years, but this limu is hands-down the best. The furikake seared fish filets are all highly recommended, as apparently are the furikake fries, though we ran out of room. Everything we saw roll out to other tables looked amazing - we'll definitely be returning for poke fried rice. The... More

Having seen this featured on Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives, we decided to check it out on our recent trip to Honolulu. We were not disappointed! The staff were very helpful and allowed us to sample several offerings before we made our selections. The Ahi was so fresh we watched them cutting it up in the kitchen....the California Roll Poke' was... More

Back here for lunch after a few years. We had the best seared tuna, covered in furakake, and the daily special of basil tomato ono, which turned out to be fried ono in a tomato/cream/mushroom sauce over pasta. Also delicious. To get some veggies we got a small container of the pickled cucumber, which has the crunch of a half... More

This place.... this place is the only spot on the island that we went back to... twice... We meant the owner the first time, and he was SO friendly, and let us taste a ton of poke before making our decision. We also had the fries covered in pork stew (guys... GUYS!!! omg...) and crab stuffed ahi rolls, and the... More
