You can't go wrong. The Spicy Garlic is my fave. Get there early for the best selection and make sure to try samples since they are all so different.

Found this place about 50 meters north of where we were staying (The Banyon Tree). Tiny but very good quality. I got one of the spicy poke mixtures with rice and seaweed salad. A little pricey at $11 for lunch but then everything is in Hawaii. Delicious food worth the wait in line.

Just so good. Living in Hawaii, you can get poke at most supermarkets, but the fish is often previously frozen which ruins the texture. This is great FRESH fish, seasoned just right. Place is easy to find on Alii Drive...parking might be a challenge in their front lot, but there is other parking available.

Fish is cubed small, so it actually feels like there's more than there actually is. It's good--makes you savor every bite. Really enjoyed this place. Kids behind the counter were friendly, efficient, and run the place well.

Da Poke Shack opened in Captain Cook , Hawaii about 12 south of it's original Kona place.
Go to Mile Marker 106 and find Poke in Captain Cook, Amazing.

Small takeout 'restaurant' with poke and sides. Easy to miss, but worth finding the place. Poke is raw fish or othe seafood marinated in various seasonings to be eaten with rice. My adult kids found this places. After we got our order, hunkered down to eat just outside the establishment at the picnic tables outside and just shared and enjoyed all of our choices! We got there late in the day, so there weren't quite as many choices. A definite great food in a 'hole in the wall', worth the visit.
