We always time our trips through Hilo so we can get fresh fish for dinner at Suisan. But now after reading the reviews for the poke bowls we'll have to try that for a picnic. Beautiful ahi and ono!

We went to Suisan two weekends ago and love, love their poke bowls. Their plate lunches are fabulous also! I would recommend eating at either Isles Cafe and or Suisan where the fish is always fresh!

We came here for lunch and, as we were hungry, both ordered the large poke plates. That was a mistake, as they were HUGE! One would have been too much for 2-3 people. Still, the poke was fresh, there was lots of choice, the sides...More
