If you want to eat just good food, this is the place for you. This is a food truck on Kahului beach road (don't rely on their website for address) with no frills. Just simple delicious shrimp you don't want to miss in Maui. Best time would just before you drive back to the airport which is a 10 minute... More

We got one of each and as delicious as they were, as found that most were quite salty. Missing the rice in the leftover sauce was money. Shrimp trucks aren't as common in Maui as in Oahu so this was a novelty but their side of the hwy location was a bit of a deterrent. Overall, nice to try once.

Wow...what more needs to be said. The shrimp here was amazingly good. Went here twice in one week and I'd go again today if I could :-( The best deal on the island for a meal you won't forget.

We have been to Maui multiple time and we always make sure to stop at Geste Shrimp Truck. All of the shrimp flavor options are great. There have been many time where we don't even make it back to our hotel and we just eat our meal in the car. I know many people could possibly be scared off by... More

No frills, but a huge pile of great shrimp - choose from four different seasonings - with fresh rice and crab macaroni salad. Yum!! And, oh, sitting on the rocks or the beach at Kahului Harbor with turtles frolicking a few feet away was and unexpected treat. Well worth the visit!

This place gives you a delicious and plentiful box of food. I got the the spicy pineapple shrimp and it was fantastic. Keep in mind you'll need somewhere to eat because it gets a bit messy with the peel and eat sauce coated shrimp. The meal was very satisfying!
