Cute little restaurant in the busy little town of Pa’ia. Lady taking orders was knowledgeable about what I could eat. Opted for fish tacos with a side of home fries (slaw comes as a standard side as well). All the food was fresh. Tacos were filling. Potatoes had the most flavor.

Don’t waste your time here. We waited in a long line just to be told by staff they couldn’t be bothered to care for a gluten free order. They would not use a different pan or utensils, so the cross contamination would be abundant and nothing would be actually gluten free. Horrible attitude towards food allergies in general, so disappointing.

Went it and explained that I had celiac. The employee told me “you can’t eat here, our kitchen is too small.” I appreciate the honestly but wish they could have been a little more accommodating as I am a local and would be a repeat customer

They said the fish tacos were not safe because of cross contamination, bummer. Had the fish sautéed in butter and garlic with the rice, it was okay.

GF isn't marked, but they were able to answer all my questions. I ate there twice in a week and felt totally fine after. Pricey but really very good.

Best fish tacos the island! Large portion sizes even with a 1 taco meal. We always visit this place a couple times each visit! Definitely one of our favorites.

Super helpful server and kitchen staff. I had a salad but pretty much made my own creation to avoid the gluten and they were so chill about it. Would definitely recommend. They’re also really quick so was perfect between scuba dives!

I have been going to paia fish market for years! (Both in paia and Lahaina) I’m very celiac and have a wheat allergy on top of it. They used to do a great job avoiding cross contamination but last time I ate there my throat closed and I had a horrible allergic reaction. All I had was the ono fish grilled! Definitely not celiac friendly anymore....

Absolutely delicious. Fish tacos were great (as with everywhere in Hawaii, seems to be the only gf options that people rave about). The tortillas are corn, I didn't feel sick afterwards (& I've been sick the entire trip), side of potatoes made in their own pan. I didn't have the same experience with the ordering as others, you order at the counter, she said the salad and the fish tacos wete gf. I had to ask about the potatoes and she confirmed how they are cooked. The line never stopped the entire time we were there, food was QUICK. Fish tacos were filling and stacked

Wow! This manager is all over it. Made excellent suggestions for menu items that would be free of cross contamination and told her line cooks to change gloves. Fantastic service and understanding of celiac disease. Food was delicious!

Amazing fish tacos. They did warn us about cross contamination on the grill and in the fryer. But the staff knows what to suggest! Your food is prepared very quickly too, so it’s great for a quick stop.

I’m a very sensitive celiac, and I ate here for dinner with no issues! The girl who took my order was super knowledgeable and even was able to list out ingredients for me unprompted to make sure I felt comfortable with it. I got the mahi mahi Cajun style with rice and potatoes, and it was so fresh and delicious.

Went last night and got the mahi mahi sautéed with 1/2 rice and 1/2 potatoes. After the first bite I had to take a picture to share. It was so good! The fish was perfect, and even better when eaten with the slaw that was under it. Rice and potatoes were good too. I definitely recommend this place and I hope that we have a chance to eat here again.

Menu isn’t marked, but staff was knowledgeable about what was gluten free and what was a cross contamination risk. I had the fish tacos, which were an 8 out of 10 (the salsa could be better).

I had the fish taco plate. It was wonderful! The plates have a lot more food than expected. Next time, I would get the lunch portion. The only side not celiac-quality gluten free is the French fries as it’s a common frier. The cashier was very knowledgeable, though. I would definitely eat here again.

Called and spoke with the owner or chef. He was very informative and said most of the items were naturally gf. He also said that he does not recommend celic persons to eat here because of the chance for CC (cast iron skillets, etc) but many gluten intolerant people eat here no problem and has regulars.
