Mush try if you like poke or sashimi. Very fresh! Variety of fish choices & preparation. Good portions & awesome sides. Outside seating only. After, can stroll in nearby iconic Liliuokalani Park & Gardens.

Shared a Poke plate for the two of us, making a very nice lunch. Many varieties available. We went with a milder selection that was still very flavorful.
