My wife and I recently drove through Kawaihae and ate lunch at Da Fish House. We ordered the fish and chips, featuring mahi mahi. The food was quite tasty but the portion size on the mahi mahi was extremely small. The lady at the truck...More

This review is for the food truck outside of Da Fish House. We were a bit confused when we got here, not realizing that Da Fish House and the food truck are separate. NOTE: This truck is cash only, so have cash on hand when...More

Battered Mahi at the food truck was awesome, juicy and tender-obviously fresh and perfectly cooked. The woman running the food truck was very nice and we enjoyed that experience. The inside market folks were less friendly. I witnessed hundreds of pounds of fish being brought...More

Run down and a bit expensive but you really can't find fresher fish to take home to grill. Their ahi preparations were best we had so far in Hawaii as was their Kim chi cucumbers.

We have visited the Big Island for the last 4 years and this is the best find. We feel local when we shop at Da Fish House, we wouldn't go anywhere else. The service is great and the fish even better. We love buying our...More
