Description: Our "take-out" style shop specializes in poke bowls and plates, featuring a variety of locally caught ahi tuna. Our poke is always fresh, never frozen...guaranteed! We also serve shrimp, tako and taegu poke. For those in your ohana who do not eat fish we serve traditional lau lau and kalua pulled pork. We even do a vegetarian poke bowl and offer gluten free options! In addition, all poke bowls and plates are served with locally inspired side dishes and rice. Unfortunately, we have limited outdoor seating, but you are welcome to stay and eat at our shared tables if they are available. Our shop opens at 10am, and we highly recommend coming early as our poke tends to sell out daily. Most days, the earlier you visit, the greater the variety of poke and side dishes to choose from. Since we guarantee freshness, and we NEVER serve yesterday's poke, we appreciate your understanding if we do not have your favorite poke late in the afternoon. Come and see us, you'll be hooked! Mahalo!

If your new here or visiting for the first time you totally have to visit da poke shack. The people are amazing and the food is local Hawai'i style. We live here and still visit for lunch when we can.

The poke was awesome, and the variety fun! They have spicy, sweet, special sauce, asian inspired etc... Lots to choose from and really good! Highly recommend this place. Pretty busy, but always fresh. When they run out, they close!

This place has the best poke I've ever tasted. It's so fresh and when we got there we got the last of what was left. I've been craving it ever since.
