This is Koloa's best eats right here, folks! I loved getting the combo Hawaiian plate. The Kalua Pork was smoked nicely (not too overwhelming) and was still pretty moist. I enjoyed it more than the Lau Lau, which was also really good. I wasn't a huge fan of the lomi lomi, but it was good to have in the combo. The glass noodles were good too and I wish I had more of those instead of the rice. The seared ahi tuna was tasteless without the soy sauce/wasabi added to it and I probably wouldn't get it again next time.
I tried to Sweet Potato Haupia Pie and was so disappointed. I just ate the top layer, which was some harden coconut milk and just tossed the crust and sweet potato portion. I was hoping for a softer consistency like pana cotta, but I was disappointed by texture and taste. Too sweet for me and cost around $4. Portion was huge and could feed 2 people's sweet tooth cravings for sure.
Parking was free and easy. I parked maybe half a block away and walked (carefully) along the road to order at Koloa. I got there not too long after they opened so I didn't experience a line or anything.Recommended for:Foodies

Outstanding fresh fish, and of course the best plate lunch in koloa. Dont let the line scare you, it moves quickly. And dont be intimidated by the various menu items, the staff is happy to help you decipher it and pick out something.

Forget about the Fish Express in Lihue, which isn't quite what it used to be and is remarkably unfriendly to island visitors. The Koloa Fish Market, on your way down to Poipu Beach, mixes up poke that's truly ono, and one big poke rice bowl or plate lunch is all you'll need for a day at the beach. I don't know what they put that's special in their haupia pudding, but wowser!

We stop at this store mainly for the Koloa Pork (pulled pork) that they carry, which is my favorite. However, they also carry a variety fresh seafood products and exotics such as seaweed salad. At the end of Old Koloa across from the post office.

Good stop for take out. We came here to pick something up for a picnic lunch out at Poipu Beach. The Lau Lau combo plate is the best here and a deal for $9.99! Love the Ahi Poke too, however it wasn't as fresh as the other places I've tried it at. The creamy wasabe Ahi Poke is different and interesting. Many have recommended this place to us, local flavor, local prices! 5 stars for the Lau Lau, 3 stars for the Ahi Poke.

Pretty much the best place to get lunch if you're staying on the south side. Their plate lunch is a great deal, usually under 10 bucks, and is absolutely delicious- my favorite is the ahi with wasabi cream sauce with rice and macaroni salad. Yum! Their poke is also to die for, and you can get a side of white rice and a bag of edamame to make it a full meal.

This is a great, local spot for a great plate lunch. It's nothing fancy, but the food is great, and it's right in Old Koloa Town, which has a few shops to wander around - great for a low key afternoon!
There is a little porch outside (usually crowded with the people waiting in line) and no other sitting space, but if you walk up the road, there is a school yard with benches and tables where you can eat your take-away lunch.

**BEST GOURMET LUNCH PLATES AND SEAFOOD**
What a statement, right.
But it is TRUE.
Fresh local fish, sashimi, seared ahi, smoked marlin, assorted appetizers platters, assorted salads, soft drinks and juices.
Hawaiian, American and local meals to go.
CASH ONLY, my friends.
**HAUPIAN OKINAWAN SWEET POTATO PIE ($3.35)
Very light and fragrant. Even if you're not a dessert fan, you NEED to try this pie. The coconut flavor stands out on its own. Beautiful.
**COMBO LUNCH PLATE ($10.99)
The laulau and Kahlua pork was AHHHH-mazing. Served with rice, lomi lomi salmon, and a cup of poke. Very fulfilling and ideal to take to the beach. Their laulau (pork that's cooked wrapped in ti and taro leaves) was probably the best thing we've ever consumed on a lunch plate.
We also ordered some of their ocean salad and poke for take-out.
Very fresh and outstanding quality.
