Suisan is a 100+ year old seafood shop that also has freshly prepared poke. They don’t have any cooked seafood and there’s plenty of outdoor seating.

Mush try if you like poke or sashimi. Very fresh! Variety of fish choices & preparation. Good portions & awesome sides. Outside seating only. After, can stroll in nearby iconic Liliuokalani Park & Gardens.

Stumbled upon this place by chance. It was absolutely amazing. Fresh! Choices of different poke. The spice ahi poke was out of this world.

Shared a Poke plate for the two of us, making a very nice lunch. Many varieties available. We went with a milder selection that was still very flavorful.
