WAIPAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Workers are slicing up sashimi at Tanioka's Seafoods and Catering in Waipahu. The general manager says there should be enough ahi for hungry customers. Prices are expected to stay close to last year's levels.

"Right now poke is about $12.95 a pound and sashimi is $26.95. So hopefully it stays around that range, maybe closer to $30 as it comes to the eves, but we'll try to keep it as low as we can," Tanioka's General Manager, Justin Tanioka said.

Tanioka's Catering department also offers all kinds of local favorites. The company is still taking orders for Christmas.
