Monarch Seafoods is a take-out place only, I believe, but it is truly outstanding! It's an out-of-the-way place near a more industrial part of Honolulu, closer to where Sand Island is located and not a place typically frequented by the tourists. They make a wide variety of sushi that is made fresh each day. Open Mondays through Saturdays and they... More

Fresh and really good food. No parking...but worth finding a way to get there. Fair price for amount of food you get

I was told by a local to try out the crab stuffed mahi roll. I recommend getting it with the wasabi because it was DELICIOUS! I also had the fried butterfish and it was so good. It had really good flavor. The portion here is pretty big.

How does Monarch only have 9 reviews? That can't be correct. Maybe the people are too busy eating to write reviews. That must be it. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Monarch invented the ahi katsu because I had never seen it anywhere until they started serving it. The ahi katsu is killer and so is the... More

I went here a few times. The customer service is slow. Not very friendly and not helpful except for the mature Japanese lady that makes the fried sushi. She's very nice and willing to help. The poke has no taste. Everything else is okay.

Looking for a hole-in-the-wall, located in an industrial area that only the neighbors know about? This is that place. This is is a take out place with no charm. No seating. No alcohol served, and plastic utensils. But the food... Oh, the food. This is 5-star worthy seafood on the cheap. Monarch Seafood is a wholesaler. They sell to restaurants... More

I've been here a few times. The furikake salmon is outstanding. The garlic roast pork is one of the best that I've ever eaten. My friends really enjoyed the garlic chicken and the tiger shrimp pasta. Parking is pretty much non existent so phone in your orders, and have 2 people pick up the order: while the driver waits, another... More

Fresh fish! Poke is great, nori wrapped crab stuffed ahi is awesome! Located in Kalihi they only have take out but you can find a nearby park to enjoy your great food. During the weekday it's hard to find on street parking, Saturdays is no problem.

Everything is good. The fish is fresh from the mornings catch. Our favorites is the Nori wrapped stuffed ahi and mochiko chicken. The opening hours are short and there is only take out, but Ala Moana Beach Park is nearby to have a picnic lunch or at Kakaako Beach Park.
