We drove straight here upon arrival in Maui because some friends had recommended it. They did not let us down! I enjoyed the Maui Shrimp Scampi very much, and I wished I had gotten extra crab mac salad. Make this your first stop in Maui, when you are done, look for Ululani's Hawaiian Shaved Ice (many locations on the island,... More

Like many others, wife and I stopped here on the way to the airport. There is a small stretch of shoulder on the road with 4-5 food trucks that I assume are regularly there. Most trucks had 0-1 customers. Geste Shrimp had 10-15 waiting. We knew we ere in the right place! Food took 20 mins or so to prepare,... More

After landing in Maui, we used GPS to find Geste. It was so convenient to get a delicious fast meal before heading to the condo. Pulled in to the park near the truck to eat and enjoy the view! Wish they had a truck on the south end in Kihei where Jawz food truck serves!!

My husband and I ate here before our flight home on Saturday. It was incredible! We had the hot and spicy shrimp and I highly recommend it -- although, literally, it was burning our fingers to de-shell the shrimp. A must try!

We were looking for a place to stop for dinner before leaving for our flight. We found this on trip advisor and decided to give it a try. I'm so glad we did!! This was one of the best meals we had in Maui! Portions are huge! I had the Spicy Pineapple Shrimp and my husband had the Lemon Pepper... More

These food trucks are really amazing me with their food and this is by far my favorite so far. They have now set the bar so high that I'm not sure another truck will be able to compete. My husband got the regular scampi. I got a half order of the spicy pineapple. This is no ordinary shrimp scampi. This... More

These shrimp are a messy but fabulous find. Very authentic, very spicy and worth looking for. The park across the street can be accessed from the road going to the recycling center and has some picnic tables. Eating from the car can be challenging unless you have wet wipes or lots of napkins. Be prepared to wait at least 20... More

We went here on the advice of friends and what a find! Known for shrimp of various flavours, and a fantastic Crab and Mac salad. Its a sticky gooey mess to eat but worth it! Don't eat in your car or without lots of napkins.

Food truck that is easy to find on Kahului Beach. Cash only. Friendly service. We ordered one of each preparation style ($13 a plate) and found the spicy to be the tastiest of the lot. That said, all 4 versions were a tad oily and a tad too heavily seasoned for our liking. Prawns were served with a scoop of... More
