Best shrimp on the island

Had the scampi and spicy pineapple. I recommend the spicy pineapple. SO tasty. The scampi was great as well. Both highly recommended.

The only place on Maui that comes close to Giovanni's on Oahu. $13 gets you a dozen shrimp with rice and crab mac salad. I've only tried the Hawaiian Scampi but I imagine it's all good. Tons of buttery garlicky goodness all over the shrimp. I love that the shrimp are cooked in the shell, hot and fresh to order.... More

I went to this placed based on the reviews. I think it's overrated. First off, shrimp is not prepared. Shell is still on it and the sand vein is not removed. The other important detail is that once you remove the shell, that removes all of the seasoning!!! I ended up licking all of the seasoning off of the shells,... More

On our fifth day of vacation, my wife and I found the Geste truck and each ordered the spicy shrimp. The food was absolutely incredible! Don't be afraid to get your hands messy. Each order (12+ shrimp) is served with white rice and crab salad--kind of like potato salad with crab. This place is a must for lunch! We loved... More

Anytime you see a crowd of locals on the side of the road, waiting for a meal to come from a truck, you know it MUST be good! Go, order, wait, and enjoy! We watched lots of tourists decline the 45 minute wait (that particular day), but don't be one of them. You'll be happy you were patient. Food Tip:... More

Excellent Shrimp truck. Easy to miss but go upon arrival or departure from Maui since it's close to airport. My dad said it was the best meal in Maui we had!

My companion stated, "I think you just spoiled shrimp for me. I can't believe anyone making shrimp ever taste this good again." Not easy to find, as there are other similar looking trucks along the beach road, but keep looking till you find the one with GESTE on the side of it. As there is no substitute. The crab potato...

I read all the positive reviews so we decided to try it on our way to the airport. My wife got the Scampi and I got the Spicy Pineapple. I will start by saying that the food is terrific. We both agreed that the spicy meal was the better option. There's more juicy flavor to mix with your white rice.... More

Simply delicious! Shrimp platters come with 12 pieces of gigantic sized shrimp, white rice and crab macaroni. The flavor is out of this world! Come prepared, they only accept cash.
