Great atmosphere. Shoyu Poke bowl is great! Shaved ice is delicious! Natural flavors are good but are weaker so if you’re going for less sugar or not too sweet, natural is the way to go. Service is great just can be slow if there’s a big group of people.
Awesome poke, Hawaiian style was delicious and enough to share for two! Pork bowl was a great appetizer size dish. Cute outdoor seating with views of Paia shops. Free parking lot close by, and friendly service at the counter. Guy Fieri approved!
Order at counter - a few tables outside. They do have customer parking (bonus) but the real plus is the food. I had the poke bowl - so much food and super fresh and tasty. I had the Hawaiian sauce. Prefer spicy but wanted to try a local flavor. The shave ice is as big as a babies head lol It looked good and a lot of folks were enjoying it. 😋
It’s a little restaurant with picnic tables only in front patio—the rest of store is the kitchen. It’s very small we came 10 minutes before closing starving from full day drive returning from Hana tour. I ordered poke. What they’re famous for. My friend doesn’t like raw fish do she ordered chicken shoyu. My poke was 4.5 stars I loved it all. I think I ordered the California The fresh poke was on bed of fresh lettuce perfectly seasoned and two scoops of rice with furikake. Seasoning. Yum The shoyu chicken on the other handless not good maybe 2stars it tasted like sugared soy sauce and seemed like it was „boiled“ we were starving. It was good enough
I was really looking forward to trying the shave ice at Tobi’s. The day prior, I had noticed they offer natural kiwi flavor, an option I hadn’t seen this far. We came back that night, but they closed earlier than I had realized. We drove through town the next day, so I decided to stop. When I looked closer at the menu, I realized that they charge $1 for the natural flavors. You can get up to 3 flavors, so if you want to stick with the natural options, it’s an extra $1 per flavor. I decided to stick with kiwi anyway. My wife was interested in the sour grape, so I ordered that as well. The kiwi was bland, and the sour grape, well, in my opinion, it was just grape, not tart whatsoever. I can’t speak to the poke, and maybe that’s where this place shines. But if you’re looking for shave ice, there are at least two other places in Paia that offer a better experience.
