We stopped here almost daily while visiting to pick up ahi poke, sashimi style ahi, local shrimp, and swordfish. Wish we had more time to try more of their offerings. Great selection of prepared seafood, local and ethnic food. We loved it! They have everything...More

There are so many options of poke and other raw seafood here it’s amazing. Grab yourself a feast on the way up to Waimea Canyon for a picnic.

Poke can be found lots of places in Kauai - do yourself a favor and get some here. Several options, all amazing and worth your time. Its a grocery store, so just go to the back counter, grab a ticket and eat all you can.

Not sure about the Hawaiian plate, but I know that they make grilled meat lunch plates at around noon or so every day, and they are pretty amazing!
