Several ahi poke varieties, seaweed salad, KimChee, Bento, and the chicken is AWESOME! I suggest the Swordfish, it is superb when grilled! Every time we go to Kauai, this is one of our first stops.

We stopped by here on the way to the airport. Tried two kinds of tuna and the salmon. It was absolutely delicious. One of the best we had in Kaua'i. A great place, possibly the best place, to grab food from for the airport.

Great fish tacos with huge pieces of Ono or Opa. Super smoked marlin! Sushi, bento boxes, great Japanese salads. They have all kinds of yummy things! No eat in, must take out or back to your condo!

The 3 of us all had poke bowls & they were so delicious and fresh! There is no dining area, it's all to go only. They also are a fish market. Very reasonably priced.

We did not have any of the cooked items or poke bowls. They had a different selection of fresh fish each day we visited. They only put out the freshly caught stuff and sometimes run out toward the end of the day. All of the...More
