We got takeout lunch here on our last day in Kauai. Took it for a picnic before heading to the airport. Fresh poke bowls were great. Cooked fish also fresh and tasty. A tiny spot known to locals - busy at lunch time. Service quick and efficient.

Octopus poke was good. order a big piece of smoked salmon, was sweet and overcooked but still very full of flavor. spicy ahi poke was ok, we didn't like it as much. order some chicken and rice we paid 36 dollars not bad i will add that our friends order the special and loved it. chicken and rice were cheap. i like to pay for a good taste was good nothing memorable…although i will go back for the octopus poke.

we found this place across the street from Walmart, we were staying at a place that had grills so you could grill out.. we stopped here and got our fish for very reasonable prices, lowest on island.. and good quality .. must try the teriyaki ahi tuna smoked tuna bites .. if you want take out and good prices this is the place

Fish Express has great food, especially the fish. The seared macadamia nut encrusted AHI and seared AHI salad were great, even the lau pork was good. Some of the best cooked tun I have ever had.
I hear their laulau pork is amazing, but they were already sold out.
Price for Kauai is not bad at around $10.
Have a large selection of Poke, but we did not try any to review at this location.
The location is across from the Walmart and there is very limited parking with no tables or room to eat. We ate in the car, which is the only downside to this place.
Be careful about the hours, they are not open very late.
Eat here for great fresh fish!

What an assortment of fish, plate lunches and snacks! A must stop before heading to the beach. Ginger chicken and musubi is a favorite. This is NOT a sit down restaurant. Its a little quaint local fish , snacks & cool beverage pick up kind of place.
