The fish is fantastic for grilling. Great selection of poke, but, most important for visitors, the great selection of bento boxes at a very reasonable price. All the employees were friendly and helpful.

This place is very crowded and has high ratings. But I didn't find it exceptional. The pricing for fish is reasonable. I did not eat the poke either time I visited so this may be why I didn't love it.

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.
