Can't wait to try their poke... Poke and liquor under one roof!

    Wasabi poke was really good and not overwhelming with wasabi. Hawaiian style had lots of crunchy seaweed, maybe a bit too much. Wanted to love the pipikaula poke but it was quite salty and got monotonous. Best was the creamy orange spicy poke with lots of being fish roe. Guy next to us ordering was sad they didn't have the hamachi that day. Looking forward to going back.

      LOL! Local folks complain that we cannot get enough limu. It's more expensive than the fish. When I was a kid, it was the other way around.

        They have a limu poke different from the Hawaiian style. I am guessing you'd like that one!

        Tried sunrise, ninja, hot shoyu with sea asparagus (sea beans), and inamona styles today. All excellent. Sunrise is spicy style plus avocado, furikake, and a sweet sauce. Ninja style is sweet and spicy with furikake and lots of sesame seeds. All use fresh ahi and are not cheap.
