The best Poke anywhere when it comes to a sit down place. In house dining with this much flavor cannot be found anywhere in the islands. Umeke's has built a loyal following for a reason. Their fish are super fresh according to the majority of their online reviews and customer feedback. With slogan like "So Fresh It's Off Da Hook" it's no wonder why their entire approach to dining poke bowl style has been taken to another level. Umeke means bowl. Their dishes are served bowl style making it super convenient to enjoy a nice fresh plate of fish and riche with vegetables all together. Not all their plates are bowl style but the majority are.
The website is something that must be checked out if you have not been there already. The design is world class. They also have a really nice photo gallery and the colors are super amazing mixing aqua blues with woodsy backgrounds. The owner who is also the head chef (Nakoa Pabre) is a season professional as it is stated on the main website. He takes price in his work allowing guests to design their own style poke bowls. These unique traditional Hawaiian cuisines are accommodated serving only the best ingredients from local farms and providers. With two locations to choose from it's loyal and new customers now have the option to try both, Umeke's Ali'i Plaza and Umeke's Fish Market Bar and Grill.
Try the Famous Poke Bowl or the Cajun Ahi Nachos, or the Sashimi to be unique. The food is all super impressive and the atmosphere is inviting. With large fish displays and a canoe outrigger hanging from the ceiling this local favorite spot makes lunch and dinner super fun for everyone who visits. Umeke's is not just local Hawaiian food, they also serve burgers and other American style cuisine. They have a strong vision to promote their brand professionally and offer great value to all those who see their amazing effort. Lastly, Umeke's also benefits charity and gets involved with the community. This support for the Big Island is remarkable. Hanapa'a for Hugs is just one benefit fishing tournament that they sponsor and get involved with. A true local eatery that is surely here to stay.
