    My fave 4 bowls here in no particular order: Sichuan Chili Salmon, Seared Toro Suji (limited), Goma Shoyu Tuna, Chojang Hirame. Can't wait for new creations from Chef Lim

    The poké bowl trend lands in Chinatown with the arrival of Chikarashi from Neta chef Michael Jong Lim, who is blending the Hawaiian staple with Japanese chirashi bowls and Chinese and Korean flavors. Read more

    Love the poké, had some concerns about the blue fin they were serving, but one of the partners came out and we talked about their dedication to sustainable seafood and where they source their bluefin.

    The Goma Shoyu Tuna poké bowl was delicious! I will have to come back for the Dole Whip pineapple soft-serve. They also sell Schweppes Cream Soda here!

    Pricey but delicious and very healthy poke bowls. The Sichuan chili salmon is the winner.

    Had the sichuan chili salmon and ponzu salmon. Best poke in the city! Better than pokeworks and wisefish poke because the dish is comes as is. The flavors are perfectly melded and balanced!

    I got the chili salmon bowl.  There is almost no space for seating, but you can do a take-out and eat it at nearby parks.  You can upgrade the bowl size to large to get more fish.  Food is delicious.

    You can't go wrong with the goma shoyu tuna bowl. The regular size was perfect but next time I might go for the large to get more fish.

    Everything is super good, but the bowls come too hot, needs to be chilléd

    We’re drooling over the ponzu salmon bowl with wasabi ponzu sauce, shiso (kind of like Japanese mint), shichimi spices and flying fish roe. Read more

    Funny how they say "prepared in the traditional Japanese style". Maybe Hawaiian style. Mayo is not traditional! Yummy but I feel like I paid $14 for a bowl of rice and furikake....

    Shoyu poke! If you want to try their wasabi mayo-- try and ask for more mayo because it's not as spicy as you think! The portions of poke vs. Rice is small.

    Eat all the poke! Traditional tuna is solid as is the salmon with mayo. Collect 'em all!

    Was very good. I got a regular size that left me hungry...and also got some supreme tuna which pushed my bowl to the $19 range. I won't do that again seeing as how I got 10 tiny cubes of fish.

    Really good place to have poke food! I ate a rice bowl with tuna and avocado, amazing!

    The fluke is excellent. Pair with a Dole whip. It's a bit pricey for the neighborhood but can't argue with the quality of fish.

    Health minded individuals can savor the ponzu salmon. If you can splurge on the calories a bit, go for the chojang hirame (slightly spicy)

    Come here for the Dole Whip, they can do a swirl with their special rotating flavor of the day.

    Poké with an eye for detail that's more refined than the build your own bowl spots popping up

    You can ask for half rice and half greens for a lighter portion.

    More chirashi than poké, it just has too much rice. Still, the bowls are fresh and flavorful, a nice find.

    Bowls are awesome. Sichuan bowl is great but will try others too.

    Cool spot but not as good as Seamore's poke. Did like the dole soft serve.

    Pretty good but expensive and they're stingy on the fish if order a large.
