We went on a search for the best food trucks on Maui. Geste's we found to have the best shrimp. Portions were humongous and very flavorful. I had the Spicy Pineapple and it is making my mouth water just thinking about it. The truck is parked on Kahului Beach Road across from the swap meet. Don't miss this truck if... More

The truck is located on the east side of Maui by the harbor on the north side. We had read about it and found it by chance when we drove around the north end of Maui. So glad we found it! The Shrimp was wonderful! We will go back for sure.

Went there with the family while in Kahului. We got two Hawaiian scampi (garlic shrimp) plates and one hot dog plate for my 5 year old (thought it was a "hot dog" with sides, but was served cut up in garlic like the shrimp plate). All were delicious - would absolutely go back again.

Had the garlic butter shrimp and spicy pineapple shrimp - would highly recommend both! The shrimp is very fresh and of a medium-large size. Everything is cooked fresh, so there is a 10-15 min wait, assuming a shorter line. Definitely one of the better shrimp trucks I've had while in Hawaii. The location is not that scenic, though, and it... More

Don't be turned off by the location or the truck itself. Unbelievable garlic butter shrimp. It is served with rice and a macaroni salad served in a lovely white styrofoam container. No seating, find a place to park near the shoreline and enjoy. 12 good size shrimps. Fantastic garlic taste swimming in butter. Wonderful taste!

Hands down the best shrimp truck in Hawaii. I've tried many shrimp trucks on the other islands and none come close to Geste shrimp truck. They have four different styles to pick from and a meal come with rice and macaroni salad or just order the Pupu plater that come with a dozen shrimp and none of the extras. The... More

If your a shrimp lover then this place is for you. Every plate has a dozen shrimp cooked to perfection. My lunch partner and I were discussing what we would select when we were offered information from a person who says they stop there about 3 times a week. That in itself says a lot. The 12 shrimp, mac crab... More

Ordered lemon pepper shrimp plate and was excellent with gigantic portion of shrimp for $13 (13 shrimp) and "one scoop" of rice that seemed equal to two scoops. Add in the salad which seems to be macaroni and crab and a HUGE meal! I was going to eat there late in the 2nd morning there but they hadn't showed up... More
