“Addictive ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014 via mobile

I was starving and ended up at this place because it would be a quick, no fuss meal. First try, fish and onion rings. Not bad. Pretty good and crunchy. Didn't think too much about it. Then the next day, craving that crunch and perfect combo of fish and fries, I got the shrimp and chips. Also delicious. Perfect crunch. Juicy and meaty shrimp. Not your store bought wimpy shrimp either. Point is, both the shrimp and fish were a good size. Not thin little pieces of filet...these guys do not skimp on portion. And everything has the right amount of fried and crunch and almost no grease. How do they do it!? Best part are the waffle fries....yummy. Reasonably priced. Every town/village/neighborhood should have a place like this. Go here. Trust me. Just go here.

“Best fish and chips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014 via mobile

This very modest local spot in a strip mall just off highway 130 serves very good fish or shrimp and chips. Also fish sandwiches nothing else.

“Surprise Find, Who Knew . . .”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

We were starving after snorkeling the Kopoho pools, stumbled upon this place. Oh man, soooo glad we did. Freshest fish n chips ever!
We tried several different fish, all were excellent.
That woman has it goin' on, she's fast, efficient, & just the right amount of friendly.
We were staying in Hilo and actually made a special trip back, on our last day, just for this place, yum!
Yep, it's just a rustic hole in the wall of a strip mall, a little crevice of gold, Eureka:)

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

This place is just a simple fish and chips shop with one major difference... they use fresh Hawaiian fish! I highly recommend the Mahi!
