We went here for lunch at it was delicious. I had one of their grilled fish specials and was very pleased. It's a takeout place, so we found a park to eat at. Great value!

This place is across the street from walmart. This is a definite must if you enjoy raw fish! i can only vouch for the poke. The octopus poke is one of my favourites. If you don't like your food too salty then this is the choice. Another great option is the animona ahi poke. Prices are by the lb and range from 8.99 to 17.99. For an 8 oz container of the octopus poke we paid about $5.80 (on the cheaper side) while an 8 oz container of the ahi was $10. The staff are so friendly and they let you sample as many poke as you like. If you are on the go in Kauai and enjoy picnic lunches/picnic sunset dinners then fish express is the best choice to stop by first. Remember to grab a cooler and ice packs so that your poke can remain cold and fresh. This place is open until 6 pm and closed on Sunday.

Last may I was in Lihue in Kauai and my wife was desperate to eat at a take out restaurant or seafood market called Fish Express. Somebody had recommended it to her and also a great friend of mine had told me I could not let it pass. So after 2 failed attempts we finally took out 2 orders of Poke, 1 of Shrimps and 1 of seaweed salad. It was great, fresh and super tasty. The best seafood I have ever had.

That is not a restaurant, you can only take out.
We had Lau Lau with Lomi Lomi Salmon, Pork Stew and Noodles.

We stop here just about every time we pass through Lahue en-route to other adventures. Lunch takeout is amazing and fresh fish for dinner is tastier than you'll find in mot restaurants. We love this place and continue to support it.
