The best and freshest Fish and Chips can get busy so be patient it's well worth the wait. Prices are reasonable.

They close early so make you plan accordingly. Also they are popular so be prepared to wait in line- it's worth it! I would suggest going for lunch rather than dinner when there's more choices.

We enjoyed a fantastic Ono fish and chips for lunch. The location should be next to the Malama Market by the traffic circle! We recommend that you stop here for a great meal. Seating is limited so consider take-out if you have a large party.

The fish here is delicious! Deep fried with a panko crust and usually served with waffle fries and coleslaw. My advice, do not get the cod it has been frozen beforehand. The Mani and ahi are fresh and have never been frozen. You can definitely taste the difference.

Pahoa fresh fish gives you a generous portion of fish at very reasonable prices. It is deep fried but not greasy. Waffle fries and slaw come with the fish. It's not fancy but it does the job. If you want an alternative to high priced tourist locations and don't mind casual surroundings, give it a try.

We stopped here to eat because we ran out of other options. It is in a strip mall and the outside is nothing to be impressed but the food was excellent and plentiful. You have to overlook the look inside to appropriate the food

We ate Lunch here and I had Fried Ahi Tuna and Chips. The selection of fish varies according to what is available local catch. The Ahi was delicious and came with 1/2 pound a waffle fries, tartar Sauce and Cole Slaw. The portions were huge. They also sell fresh fish in the store and I don;t think I could have... More

We made a brief lunch stop at Panoa Fresh Fish and had excellent fish and chips. The fish is fried a bit differently than typical - with a panko crust instead of batter crust and not very oily which provides a crispy yet firm fish. They offer a variety of fish and shrimp or calamari. They have a 3 pc... More

We ordered the combo which was fish and shrip and a side crab cake. The shrimp were over cooked and rubbery, the coleslaw was warm, the crab cake was doughy on the inside and the fries were cold. On a positive note the fish was delicious. They were out of everything but mahi mahi so we didn't have a selection... More

This place is relatively new and a real gem. Would love to write a review to let people passing through Pahoa towards Volcano National Park about it.
