Excellent Food Truck!

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.

This was my first meal on Maui and even though every meal since has been more expensive, none have been more flavorful. This mom and pop truck is even more unassuming than you could imagine a shrimp truck to be. I knew I was in for something special when 4 more cars pulled off to the side of the road... More

Delicious. We tried the Hot and Spicy Shrimp, it was not too hot and Spicy, just right size for two to share. Walk down the pier and find s spot in the shade, and enjoy. Aloha!

We stopped by the shrimp truck on the way to flying back to CA. We had a little trouble finding it, but next time it will be a breeze. We went with the shrimp scampi and extra crab mac salad. The shrimp comes in the shell, so it's messy, but beyond delicious. So tender and full of flavor. I would... More

We made a special trip to this take out truck to try the famous shrimp. They are fabulous and quite tasty. Amongst us we had hot & spicy, Hawaiin scampi, spicy Hawaiin, and lemon pepper shrimp. All the flavours are good. The side dish of crab mac salad is fabulous. Don't miss this the Geste Shrimp Truck while in Maui,... More

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
