At first glance this place looks to be nothing more than a hole in the wall. I ordered the ahi wrap it was served in a tortilla with a cream wasabi sauce and was to die for delicious. The prices are a little steep but most places in Hawaii are expensive. $13 for one wrap but was full after eating half if it. They did not skimp on the ahi at all. When you walk by this place in the evening the smell will lure you in. This is a must try.

The fish was very fresh and overall the food was excellent. They suggested the ahi as it had just been caught. We were not disappointed. Note: the only accepted cash.

Even when we were specifically looking for this place we drove past it four times. It is a very small place, but has great food. Loved the Ahi Nori Wrap, and the Fish Tacos. Super casual. All seating is a couple of picnic benches out front. At 8:30, it wasn't too busy and could get a seat. The girls that worked there were friendly. Several things on the small menu looked good, and if we would have stayed in Kauai longer, I would have liked to go back to try some of the other stuff.

This place was a wonderful find. I had tropical tacos. Must say that I really loved it. My wife had a coconut curry tofu dish. We endorse this place totally.

When we visited, they were having trouble with the grill, so we had to wait, but it was well worth it. Had the seared ahi wrap.
