Well Worth The Effort

Had read the rave reviews on TripAdvisor and decided it was a "must do" eating experience. We got there around 10:50 - Truck was not there yet. We waited, somewhat impatiently, since I was starving, and at about 11:15 the truck pulled up. We ordered the Hawaiian Scampi, and the Hot & Spicy (we... read more

This truck is not in the most convenient place, but the food is worth it. These are cheap (by Hawaiian standards) eats for real people -- snooty people need not apply. We ate our food in a nearby park and had a lovely time. The shrimp is so good! We had Spicy Pineapple Shrimp and Hawaiian Scampi -- both were... More

We went twice during our visit and the pineapple shrimp was so good that I ordered it both times. It comes with rice, cabbage, plenty of sauce, and a macaroni/crab salad. Carry your take out over to the ocean and enjoy your meal there. The shrimp is cooked with shell on. Bring a plastic knife unless you enjoy either eating... More

My husband saw this truck and turned around, we had decided to only eat at our cottage the entire time we were in Maui but ended up eating here 3 times. It is SOOO good!! I have tried to find the recipe since coming home but the "replica" wasnt quite it. I loved the Shrimp Scampi and my husband tried... More

Went here three times in three days and couldn't get enough. Shrimp is cooked on demand and there's a bit of a wait but its completely worth it. We kept getting hot and spicy as its perfectly spiced with the best Mac and cheese salad and rice. Loved this place and its been the best so far across Maui, Big... More

We wanted to start off our road to Hana trip by eating at this much talked about food truck, but as it turned out, we were left to wish we hadn't. First of all- they were more than half an hour late, we were waiting in the sun, they wouldn't answer the phone, and finally when they got there, they... More

Visit Maui for Christmas break with family. It was so delicious and reasonable. We visit a lot of restaurants in Maui but by far this was so good!! Make sure you get to truck early because once they run out, that is it! Must visit

The shrimp are delicious! The plate has about 12 large shrimp, rice and macaroni with crab salad. Everything was so tasty and I couldn't wait to eat this again. Unfortunately they are not where they park at 10:30 like the websites say and I went on a Saturday and they weren't there. After calling their number a couple time, someone... More

My wife and I were in Kahului and stopped by the Geste Shrimp truck on Kahului Beach Rd. The Hawaiian Scampi shrimp were unbelievably delicious. There is no seating at the truck so most people either ate in their car or took it with them.

All the 5 star reviews are on target. The other indicator is the smiles on the surfers chowing down. There are plenty of spots with good views of the bay nearby to have a picnic. Also just up the road from the MACC and the swap meet
