Long lines but worth the wait. Plus, they have tons of workers to help move the lines. And, the food is great.

A friend of mine that used to live on Oahu recommended this place for poke. We decided to stop by for a late lunch, about 2:30. I hadn't read any reviews of this place so I didn't know they were closing at 3. Of course...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Is there a Menu or listing of items that are sold at the counter, that I can find online? All I see are the menu items for poke, bento, and plates. It would be great if we could plan ahead, so as not to hold up the line!
