This is the place for fish n chips. Not a fancy place but you will love and appreciate the VERY FRESH FISH and chips. They usually have Ahi, cod, Magic and Tombo. All white meat. They make awesome fish burritos too. Try it. You will be hooked after one bite.

My friend and I were in the area and decided to try the restaurant, which was a little hard to find for GPS. The restaurant's address is 15-2670 Pahoa Village Rd. The restaurant reminded us of a fast food establishment with no ambience. But the fish is fresh. We had the fish burrito and fish and chips combo (fish with... More

Found this place in Pahoa even though the Tripadvisor gps coordinates are incorrect. I had to call the restaurant for the correct location. They are located at Pahoa's only roundabout, behind the gas station, at the Malama shopping center. Their fish is fresh like the name says. Today's choices were ono (wahoo), mahi mahi, salmon and cod. Choose any one... More

Fish and chips, tacos and burritos here are all delicious! The first time I bit into one of their huge burritos, I was surprised by the crunch, and quickly fell in love! They prepare the fish for the burritos as they do for the fish and chips, resulting in the yummiest, crunch inside a soft flour tortilla! And not only... More

We ran into some locals and they directed us here to eat. It was a nice "hole in the wall" place in a strip mall. Fish was made fresh as we waited. It was very good and a decent price.

I can say that (even after years of living in the UK and Ireland) these were the best fish-and-chips I've ever had. Get the Ono, order the biggest portion and share with your friends- the fish is incredible!

Wonderfully meaty fish with crispy batter, not too greasy, Potatoes tasted great. Good size portion. Definitely an insiders hole in the wall to not miss.

I'm from the UK, fish and chips is almost our national dish and over the years I've eaten my fair share, but these were the best. The fish was fresh and cooked to perfection but it was the batter tat made it special, slightly crunchy, very tasty and no sign of any grease or oil. The fish was served with... More

This place is relatively new and a real gem. Would love to write a review to let people passing through Pahoa towards Volcano National Park about it.
