Where can I find the best fish tacos in Waikiki?

I love a good fish taco and don't care whether its coming off a truck or being served in a high end restaurant. Thanks.

  1. sadly the best fish taco i have found in Honolulu are at Chili's, yes... the mainland chain. Even worse than that, I haven't had anyone really contradict me. Certainly in Waikiki you won't find one (and I don't recommend any of the so-called "Mexican" restaurants in Waikiki either. If you are down near Ward Avenue, Wahoo has some pretty good fish taco type food as well.

    1. If you are willing to go outside Waikiki a bit, I believe (perhaps incorrectly) that Eat_Nopal said that Just Tacos had good fish tacos.

      1. FF,

        You might want to do a search of this board. There was a similar thread about 10 mos. ago, with a bunch of recs. It should still be up. Just plug in "fish tacos", when on the main page of this board.

        Personally, I've never had any in Hawai`i, but maybe that's because we live close enough to be influenced by Baja.

        Good luck,


        1. For awesome fish tacos, you should check out Sweet Home Waimanalo. Their fish tacos are lightly seared and comes with fresh pineapple salsa and a lime cream sauce. I highly recommend it! They may be a far trek but definitely worth the trip!! Delicious food and smoothies... Acai bowls, peanut butter bellows, tasty brisket sandwiches.. mm mm good!
