Yummy plate lunch in downtown Lihue. Parking best across the street at local park. Cash only! Appears to be a place that locals frequent.

Frequented by the locals just off Rice in Lihue - delicious Hawaiian fish plates for convenient take-out meals.

We had a morning flight from Honolulu, and even though the trip from O'ahu was about half an hour we were hungry. This place was poke heaven, and had all sorts from ahi, salmon, tako, shrimp, and lobster poke. They did offer Japanese bento and Chinese options, but we stuck to the poke. Ordered a side of chicken long rice,... More

My family all enjoyed amazing food from Kalena Fish Market. The swordfish dish I had was incredible, but so were the fish tacos and poke. Every single item we ordered from this little place was over the top great and the most affordable place we went to on the island. They also have very convenient, yummy Bento boxes to take... More

We stopped here for lunch. It was very good. The fish was great and the servings were huge. They have an array of sides as well as rice and potato salad. It is a cash only casual place but the food is good and will fill you up!

Love fresh fish? We are regular visitors to Kauai and like to stop in here before we head north to our condo after arriving to pick up lunch. The poke selection is great and the sushi yummy.

Kalena is a small, mostly carry-out place, that serves Korean food. Some of the best fish you will eat on the island is served here. They offer a daily fish (and chicken, beef, pork) in a couple of Korean preparations. The two most popular preparations are Katsu and Jun. Katsu means breaded in Panko and fried. It is a little...

Always a favorite place for lunch. We like to take it down to Kalapaki for a picnic. It's best to call in your order if going there during the lunch rush.
