“Hands down the best poke we had while in Waikiki. Our Uber driver recommended it and it did not disappoint. Reasonable prices too. Just a heads up, only take out and no dine-in when we went (mid-January). There’s no outside area to eat either. So just be prepared to take it with you. Well worth it!” – Chelsea S.
