Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Best poke place in Waikiki. Fish is fresh and they have a nice selection of sauces and toppings. My favorite is the Rainbow Bowl.

We found this place right beside our hotel and are happy we did. We've never tried poke before but it was amazing. Great selection of options to customize your bowl as well. We visited several times during our trip as we couldn't get enough. Highly...recommended to visit.More

Decent food, a little pricey for relatively small portions for poke bowls ($22 xtra large) but that’s probably consistent with Waikiki. There are probably better places but this spot appears on all the list of must tries - one try is enough.

This place is fantastic. We were in Waikiki for 9 days and ate there every single day. Staff is friendly and helped us with explaining the different options. Highly recommend the Signature Bowl with the spicy sauces. Extremely delicious. Fish is very fresh. You get...Tuna, Salmon and Marlin fish and have a choice of white/brown rice or Sushi rice and a variety of extra toppings. Would definitely return. Wish we had a place like this back home. Highly recommended.More

Good fish/poke, small portion. The "Large" might have had 6 oz of fish but was probably more like 5. WAY overpriced, next time I'll get poke at the market. I'm about 60kg and was still hungry after the "large" bowl with an add on. Their..."large" is a mainland "small." but still ~$20More

Maguro Spot has a well earned reputation for good fresh Poke. Definitely worth a visit. Note that they have virtually no seating so best for take out

We got Poke from quite a few places, including a highly-rated restaurant attached to a hotel near the Beach (whose Poke Bowls were so generic I forgot the name), but Maguro Spot was easily the place with the tastiest and most diverse set of Poke...Bowls. Go here when you can, but note: they do run out of fish due to their popularity.More

Saturday night close to closing time and the line was still very long, tried not to listen to a couple on their first date as the line moved slowly from the sidewalk to finally inside. There were set meals but most people were creating their...own bowls. I had the Hawaiian tuna on white rice, my husband the spicy tuna. Various toppings available for additional price. Very limited seating outside (it was dark so couldn’t really see) so we took it back to our hotel. Not the best poke we had, but was a decent dinner.More

Across the road from my mates hotel this Poke specialist often has a queue extending into the street but it is worth the wait. The popularity also guarantees the fish is fresh. Medium supreme was my choice and it did not disappoint - for $15...(includes the $2 tip) it was a great lunch prepared after you order. Rice base, tuna, salmon, marlin, spicy dressing, seaweed & cucumber salad and endamame beansMore

Excellent poke bowls for a reasonable price. We had dinner here twice as we stayed in the hotel opposite and we were not disappointed. There are queues outside literally all day and on one occasion we waited almost an hour to get food. It is...definitely worth a visit.More

Great poke and they run specials so you get your money’s worth. Seating area around the corner is nice and shaded in the mid-afternoon heat. We move in a big group and could easily all sit together.

Very good. Flavor and portion size much better than Poke Bar around the corner. We always love trying different poke while on the islands and this spot did not disappoint.

Very tasty and fresh! You can try poke from the menu or make your own: choose size of the bowl, base (one of three types of rice), fish (you can add mix of fish also), sauces. You can supplement your poke with some toppings like...edamame beans, caviar, cucumber, avocado etc. Your poke will be ready in couple of minutes, you can take it to go or sit nearby, tables are provided. Friendly staff.More

The best Poke bowls in Oahu and one of the best in Hawaii! All at a reasonable price. The service was great - friendly and offered recommendations; conveniently located off the main strip in Waikiki!
