We had read some great things about this food truck so we made sure it was our first stop as soon as we left the airport. We got there about 5:15 on Saturday afternoon. They were still open but we're out of hot dogs. They shrimp were great and exceeded expectations. I got the scampi and my husband had the... 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!

Having read the reviews here we wanted to give Geste Shrimp Truck a try. First thing is, don't trust the address on the mobile website. I'm only guessing but I think you will end up at their home. I honestly can't figure out why they wouldn't correct that. That aside, the food is very good. Be prepared to wait, although... More

I had been patiently waiting to try this on our trip to Maui. I read all the reviews and knew this was my kind of place. Finally we were in the Kahalui beach area and I swear I heard heavenly music when I saw it. The very nice lady took my order for a mixed plate of spicy shrimp. We... More

The truck is located by the boat launch in Kahului harbor. This is a great stop when you're waiting for someone flying in later than you. It's two miles from the airport. By far the best shrimp I've ever had. So good we drove from Kihei for a second round. The lemon pepper shrimp was great, but I don't think... More

If you like garlic shrimp scampi, this is the place. I have eaten a lot of scampi in a lot of places, and this was the absolute best.

My sis and I wanted to try it and got scampi to go. The sweet garlic perfumed our car on the way back to Napili. Messy? Yep. We agreed that it was the best scampi we've had and that the sticky rice soaked up the garlicky sauce to make an irresistible flavor and texture combo. Don't miss it!
