“Very good!”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

It is a bit difficult to find even with Google maps or Apple maps, but once you do, it is one of the best places we have ever been able to get some of the freshest fish for our meals we have had the opportunity to taste. They have two different sized portions for you. Be careful of the big double portions-it is exactly that! Two times the size of the regular meal. Everything was delicious, fresh and a lot of food. It is a bit pricey, not outrageous by any means. I would guess the prices are a little more because of their location, but they more than make up by the quality and size of the meals offered. A definite stop for you if you are looking for superb quality.

“Try Umeke's, too”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

Didn't eat here but Tripadvisor doesn't recognize Umeke's, another poke shop, more conveniently located than Da Poke. Two locations, one a kiosk in the Lanihau Shopping center and the main location located along Kuakina Street just up from the beach. In addition to the poke, they also offer a grilled fish plate in the early evening- go early, it closes at 7PM

“Good poke, a bit over priced”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

The poke is definitely fresh and delicious. The location is great if you are staying at one of the many condo complexes nearby, however, Safeway's is just as good and a lot less expensive.

“Cudos to Da Poke!”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

Last time we were here, a guy was unloading an ahi he had just caught to sell to Da Poke. Now that's fresh!

Poke is out of this world fresh and good, go early, because when they run out, they run out!

Best Poke of all that we sampled, and it is one of the staples for our group.

Staff is pleasant, step up to the counter and tell them what you want. Pointing works, as the Japanese couple in front of me learned.

It's all good, wasabi, Poke Special, whatever you order you will like.
