This is a very nice place that is in the heart of the city. the restaurant has a very convenient location and was very very easy to find unlike many others on this Island. I loved the food. It was very fresh and the service was quick and the people were friendly. the price was on the higher side but that is what the price is all over kauai.

I visited Fish Express a couple of times during my recent Kauai vacation (after reading other reviews here) and came away extremely satisfied both times - the seafood is extremely fresh and expertly prepared, at a reasonable price ($10 for an ample meal). One thing I wished I'd known in advance -- the hot items from "Da Grill" are available Monday - Saturday, 10am - 3pm only. Get there between those hours to sample the best items.

This is the lunch place that locals eat at. Great variety of pokey; great selection of fresh fish cooked in a variety of ways. We hit this up twice because it was so good. Definitely a great place for fresh fish at a very reasonable price!

Off the plane, got our car, checked Tip Top Café (it was closed) so we headed straight for the Fish Express for a delicious late lunch. We had the sesame seed encrusted ono salad and an ahi plate lunch. Both had superior fish, great sides of brown rice and mac salad (made with spaghetti) and enough salad greens for another meal (excellent ginger dressing too!) The portions of fish were large as well as tasty!
We simply parked and ate in our car, that's how hungry we were.
Had some ling hui treats for dessert. Will try their poke next time we visit. Would recommend to friends and family.
REMINDER: kitchen closes at 3 pm for specials......only a couple of "ready made" items available after that.

This has to be the best take out seafood we have ever had. Fast, fresh, and cheap. One serving feed two people. A must place to eat. I had the macadamia crusted ahi. With dill sauce, trust me I licked. The to go box clean..... just go there, you'll find it great.
