Loved the choices of fresh dishes. So tasty. Must try spicey Poke Bowl. Hawaiian fried fish with potato salad and greens. Not your mamas potato salad or greens but very delicious.

“Fantastic local fish make sure to pickup near airport”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

everytime i land on Kauai I stop here for their poke - which is raw ahi tuna in delicious oils, onions, seaweed, or tamari. And the smoked marlin can be fantastic! Great prices on fish, a must stop once landing, then you have great fish for a meal.

“Great meal and Great price period”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

There is no place to eat your meal and you are ordering from a fresh fish market. WHO CARES! The plates are about $10 and you get some super fresh fish and rice and salad. I had the ahi the first time and we went back and got the ono. Both were flaky, tender, and tasty. Just find a spot to picnic and you have the perfect meal. Don't Miss It!

“Lunch plate special”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

If you visit Kaua'i this is a must. Right across the street from Walmart. They have a lunch plate special everyday for $10.95, fish, rice and Mac salad. Good size serving and very good. This is a fish market so their is no place to sit, I just turn on the AC and eat in the car. Poke is good, but the Pono market in Kapa'a is better.

“Great!! food-cheap and fast”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Wonderful-we never miss this place-coming into Kauai or leaving-just across from Wal-mart-not far from the airport. Small and always busy, everything is de-LISH! Excellent service-fast and they encourage sampling. Very economical but they aren't open for dinner.
Don't miss it-you will be glad you didn't!
