Delicious poke bowls! I love that you can add whatever toppings you want and they have a pretty good variety of poke. They do everything by weight so keep that in mind when adding the toppings. One thing I disliked was their hours. They usually were closed by the time we were making our way back to the North Shore.... More

We picked up poke bowls from here quickly upon arrival (very close to the airport) and LOVED it. At least 10 types of protein to add to the bowl, with DIY toppings. We'd go back in a heartbeat. We'd have paid double than our under $10/person bowls.

Watch what others do as you stand in line. You can order Poke and rice bowl. Sign says to tell them what type of rice from a selection of three. Select two types of Poke by looking at choices displayed and they hand it over for you to add condiments. Set it on scale and hand over your money. About... More

If the locals go, you should go to. Full disclosure, I do live here and when I have to go to "town" I try to stop in. Plate lunches have fresh fish with rice and salad with delish dressing. Fresh fish by the pound, sashimi and shrimp. Be adventurous and try it, you will be back! Take out your pupus... More

Good food. Good selection. Reasonable Prices. I would give it one more star if there was any place to sit and eat. It's totally carry-out, and I'm betting that hot food would be luke warm by the time you go it all the way home. We took ours down to Hanamaulu Bay for a picnic, so it was great.

The Fish Express specializes in takeout food and raw local fish to bring back to your resort for grilling. There is no seating. We believe they have the best selection and most competitive prices on the island. Love the box lunches, which usually provide enough food for 2 meals. A new display case offers a serve-yourself option for some items,... More

We were looking for somewhere different to eat when we passed this leaving Walmart. We found fresh poke, seafood salad and lightly fried calamari that was really, really tasty. We'll definitely go back. The prices are also surprisingly low. Great price for the value!

If you are staying in a condo on Kauai and cooking at home, Fish express is the best place on Kauai for fresh fish each day. A very popular spot for the locals. Get there early to have the most choices they run out of fish by early afternoon
