Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

With great customer service! My wife and I eat there a lot. I havent tried anything yet that I didnt like. Food is ono and the prices are reasonable especially when the fish is fresh from the kona water to our plates! Best poke place on the island hands down!

“Unbelievable Poke!”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 via mobile

The poke was out-of-this-world! We got to try almost all the poke from the super-friendly staff and could hardly decide. All of them were great! We will absolutely seek this place out when we return to Kona.

“This place got me hooked on poke”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

Great variety and very fresh. Best poke I have ever had. Local business great service. You can call ahead or come in to order. Both times I went I enjoyed sampling the selection and then placing my order. They knew I didn't know what I was doing :-)
