REVIEWS OF Tanioka's Seafoods & Catering IN Hawaii

Mia Turro

It's a classic, usually busy but the vibe is great!! I always get excited when I'm there.

Tamra Castro

Food great so it's always busy..better to order in advance...kinda pricey but quality is worth it! Owner Mel is awesome guy

Bryan Rabilas

Expect 10-2p minute wait around lunch time. Parking can be a challenge. It is worth it if you like good Poke. They have great bento (box lunch). Look at Tanioka's Facebook page on Tuesday to find word of the day. Say the the word and they give you free item.

Mallorie and Ashley Hall

We ordered Tanioka’s catering for 30 people. Plenty of food. All very fresh and flavorful. Very impressed! Would highly recommend!

Pat Reese

Always awesome. Dont let long lines deter you, it moves fast if everyone knows what they want.

Michael Datuin

Everytime we come back to Oahu, we always enjoyed the poke that our family bought from this place. This time we finally went to the store and was amazed at all the great food. The parking is limited, so either get here early when the store first opens, or expect to wait for a spot. Items do run out, so getting here early is key. When we went at 11am on a Monday, there was already a line of people outside. Once inside, you can order different kinds of yummy poke, haupia-ube pie, glazed poi andagi, poi mochi, chicken katsu, lumpia, bento, spam musubi, and so on. We'd eat here everyday if we had something like this in San Diego. If you're in Oahu and you like to eat, you owe it to yourself to come here and enjoy what great local food is all about. Definitely going back again!

Keane Muranaka

Poke is the best. Busy during lunch. Expect to wait in line but it goes fast. Good selection makes it hard to pick your poke.

Daryl Tokunaga

Would be 5 stars except for the fact kind of pricey.

Nancy Cuttitta, Certified Holistic Nutritionist

Hawaiian poke bowl was amazing

Ryan Gregus

Food is great, you really can't go wrong with anything there. If you are just visiting the island get a good taste of the local seafood here

ken nakamura

Love the fried chicken and musings. The poke is also always good. Quality of the food is pretty much always great. The security guard helping to guide the line is very nice. Only real issue is when inside that sometimes the line gets congested and people aren't sure when to move around.

Sharon Miyasato

Da best eva, one food

Avelina Santiago

Theeeee best hands down!!!! If you want a local style food experience, this is the place to be. Excellent customer service, great food and variety of poke. Gotta try the jumbo shrimp with special sauce! And the lumpia is perfect!!! This place is unforgettable and my family's favorite. Price is just right and absolutely worth it for quality food.

DJ Peterson

Great service during lunch. Always a line but it goes by fast because of their workflow. Great food!

The best fresh poke, wide selection of items in the okazuya!

How good is the food, the line is out the door. That's all you need to know.

Dianne Okumura

I was able to get fish eggs which I had not eaten in years! Could not find them anywhere and they were wonderful!

Wayne Wong

I heard a lot about how good the poke was here, so I had very high expectations. They did not disappoint. We had the California poke bowl and the Limu and Onion poke bowl and they were amazing. We cant wait to go back to try all the different flavors.

Lloyd DelaPena

Really good food

Devin Alford

Best poke anywhere. Folks working there are super efficient. Long line moves fast. Very generous company, gives back tho the community.

Kel Kado

Some of the best poke in all of Hawaii plus so many other delicious things to choose from!

kwonsoo .

The best ahi poki on the iskand. I wished there were places to sit and eat. We took our poke to a nearby park and watched a wild ferret run around while eating.


Everything's great! Top notch flavors!

Alan Yeh

Good poke and other goodies. Poke prices are a bit on the high side but it’s worth it.

David Souza

Freshest fish taste is super good... very long lines and parking is a bit of a hassle but worth it..

Carrie Cheng

Got the tuna poke from here. I think the sesame oil is too strong. We all like the tuna steak better. This place closes early at 3 pm.

Jamelyn Purdy

PLAN at least a 1/2 hour in advance. You can go straight to the cashier to pick up your phone order. KOREAN TACO POKE IS THE ONLY TACO POKE THAT I EAT FROM ANYWHERE!!! ONE-OF-A-KIND!!! Saves you from that crazy line - Only if you can RESIST those other tempting selections.

Johnnette Morton

Food is always great and the service fast and friendly! Always a busy place but, it goes fast.


Excellent food, friendly staff, always busy.

Anthony Ramos

Da best. Been going for almost 30 years. Still da best. Baga Ono. Travel from Calif to eat their food. No can beat dem ladat.

Top 3 poke spots on the island. they also have really good chicken, super juicy. There's always a line filled with locals and tourists, so be prepared to wait. The ordering process is a bit chaotic and hectic which is a bummer.

The best poke, bentos, and garlic chicken on the island. The lines usual quite lengthy but the staff behind the counter take care and will get the line going. The fish patties and musubis are sooo ono I always have to get extra stuff to go with my bento and poke! Don't forget to get yourself a green river drink too!

Paul Fai

The best poke around. Fish cakes and musubis are top notch too. Worth the long line wait. Go get your local kine grindz.

Arcadio Mora

Come and grab a bunch of ahi Poké. So many different styles and all so Ono. They do let you try it too. Also, a lot of fried sides and other bowls. Spicy ahi and sushi rice is da best.

Michael Wong

Very good food.

Roger Valenzuela

Love your poke.price is reasonable. I can't put it in words how tasty your poke(ahi, tako)

Emily Llewellyn

If your in the area must stop in for there famous tempura, poke and I like the fried rice

S el

Location and parking kinda sucks, but when you produce poke flavors like Tanioka's, it's worth the drive, frustrating parking, long lines, and high prices. Always a winnah with anything you order!!! Family favorite is the sesame tako poke!!

Rona Tima

I ate almost everything. Yummy yum yum

timelore25 .

Great food but a little pricey.

Cheryl Ann Natividad

This place never disappoints! The poke, fried ahi belly, fish patties, and mochiko chicken are a must! Be prepared to wait in a long line (it moves pretty quickly though), and tight parking. It's worth it!

Lakisha Jackosn

This is a great place to go and get some local grinds. They have awesome fried rice good corn beef hash and even if I dont eat fish i know lots of people that say the fish is good there and also i heard they are making another taniokas I'm just not sure where but u should go try it it's in waipahu right near Tammy's the samoan store.

Duy Tran

Spicy Marlin and Ahi was fresh and flavorful.

tyress akiyama

Over rated high prices high maka maka

Michael Goodknecht

The foods always good there.. big selection, fresh fish, and super ono fried chicken.

Lance Akana

Great food. Friendly people.

Hayden Fischer

Extremely delicious poke. I had the spicy ahi on white rice and it was some of the best I've ever had. Everything else in the case looked just as good. The line was very long, which is a good sign for that type of place. Orders could beade in bulk, which I imagine would make for a great party tray or buffet.

Stella Vincent-Poe

awesome, great quality and super great customer service.

Annettte Mendiola

Good food and friendly service

Thomas Mullins

This place is Da Bomb for fresh poke. Great friendly staff. Get there early for best selection.

Delia Riel

Love their Ahi fish patties!

Aaron Schultz

Great quick easy lunch


Great plate lunch but it's always crowded & lacks parking space.

Pat K

One of the best Fried Chix around. Plus fresh poke, assorted musubis and lots more. Also 99cent drinks.

Aaron Matsumoto

Fantastic Local Japanese kine grinds as always! Love the glazed Poi Andagis and Tanioka's has a fantastic selection of Poke. Many menu items in this take out only restaurant run out quickly (that's how ONO the food is) so go early!

Matt Yoshida

Poke is amazing. The spicy ahi is the best you'll find on the island. Far better than Safeway or foodland. You can order a poke bowl with salad and they'll give you a separate bowl of salad too.

A Cama

Great service and great food. I can't get enough of this place.

Jesse Garcia

Always the best and freshest poke around. Cant go wrong with the garlic chicken too. Things add up really fast so watch out. You can go broke here. Ouch.

Marissa Perez

It's okay... but not sure what the hype is all about. It's take out ONLY, no where to sit (stand outside or in your car). Looks like a good selection of poke, but a bit overpriced at $23.99 a pound. The line was loooong but did go fast. You can call in and order ahead of time. The food was okay. Soooooo, will I go back? Been there, done that.

Danh Hoang

Amazing poke and shrimp tempura. Only complaint is there is no eating area

David W. Stout

Get here early awesome place for poke

Aine Hintz

Best chicken and okazuya in Waipahu. Friendly staff.

SeFok Chan

Best take-out seafood in the island of Oahu period.

Pacifica Olores

The best poke ever!!! You can leave with a bunch of other great tasty things like the SWEET POTATO TEMPURA!!


Great poke, friendly and quick service. Line gets long during lunch but moves quickly. My son in law's favorite poke shop.

KC See

Always a line here for a good reason!

Reggie Wells

One of the best places to get fresh fish and poki the way you like.

James Slye

Great foods

fox trot

Taniokas has amazing poke, best I've ever had. They are fast and help you quickly even when the line is out the door (which ive always found to be the case during lunch). They are friendly and have a large assortment of .eals to choose from, plate lunches and fried foods and rice balls, musubis and desserts. A must stop if you are near Waipahu

Kurtis Im

One of the best mochiko chicken.


Absolutely love this place! A bit pricey, so be ready to splurge. Fresh poke, okazuya options. Go next door to 7-11 for drinks.

Sheri Shimomura

Omg so yummy but so expensive I spend at least 75.00.... but feeds 6ppl hehehe

Faith Nakasone

I love Tanioka's! Best food and good service

Fresh poke, musubi and local plate lunch.

The best fish on the island and excellent service

Nette Manaday

Shrimp tempura was very oily. Squeezed out a lot of grease in a paper towel.

Promise Ruth Jones

Fried chicken is bomb.

Anthony Matsushige

Good food, yes. Service, service, service!

Shanae Souza

The best tako ever!

Kenny Arelong

The best poke u can get on the island.

Christopher Akina

Glad to find they were open on labor day but left dissatisfied. Waited in line to buy a few pounds of poke but got to the counter where only two kinds of Ahi poke and less than one pound total, remained. We took the last half pound of limu poke and left the remaining for the people behind us. We were lucky that there was at least something for us to buy but there was a line of people behind us and no announcement was made that they would be standing in line for no reason because there was nothing available.

Cody Ledo

Joaquin Diaz

The food is great. The lines are long. The menu includes options to ala carte, order plate lunch, or poke bowls. They have a system to move people quickly through the long line. Tanioka's is a local staple. Parking can be challenging. Arrive early or during off peak. They also cater and the food is equally good. Visit and you won't be disappointed.

Kapeka Travis

By far my favorite place to eat on the island! The lines are long for a reason and the prices are a little higher than most places because your buying the best quality. The staff here are like one big Ohana. Always smiling, super friendly

david yee

Best Poki on island of Oahu!

taila alapai

Da maki sushi was ono and shrimp tempura was good,2 pricey some stuff

Anthony Arquines

One of my favorite poke places on the island. Their fried chicken & fish patties balance out their poke, so if you're craving a plate lunch, lots to choose from. Definitely a stop by for tourists.

Brianna Langman

One of the best!

Steven Arita

Best poke on island.

SurfN DelaRiva

Great local foods. Bentos to bring on flight with some goodies.

Best okazuya food. Even makes Poke to take back mainland. Da Best - Mahalo for the great service

Karuna Dragneel

It's expensive but you get good quality, and freshness best flavors.

Wes Ujimori

Great food. Long lines. Pre call with order.

Jessica Mabida-Bridges

Fresh fish and Tastes Yummy


The fish portions were very small, my plate had a bunch of the tempura fillers. There’s another place that is so much better called Ahi Assassins and they really have great poke portions, it’s super fresh and for the same price.

DazJokahz n Dazzy

Good food. Great selection of fresh poke. Also great goodies and foods.

Elaine Lucas

One of the best places on Oahu. Poke is ono and all their okazuya foods are very good too. Chicken is one of the best I've tasted both garlic and fried. My daughter and I love their dry aku poke.

Daniel N

Was awesome. Food is yummy in my tummy.

Glenn Rose

Best Poke I have had.


The best quality n service on the Island , Super Fresh Poke , an Okazuya Treats. A little bit of a Drive to Waipahu , but, DEFINITELY worth it!
