Food Truck in Kihei

I looked up Kinole Grill on TripAdvisor for Lunch while driving back from the beach. The GPS lead us to the food truck on . My wife got the Coconut Shrimp plate. I got the Spicy Garlic Shrimp plate. The shrimp were cooked to perfection. The sauces were very flavorful. Will return!

We first visited the Kinaole Food Truck in Kapalua while our kids were at a show in Lahaina ~ enjoyed the amazing spicy garlic shrimp while watching the sunset from the adjacent viewpoint. The shrimp and the spicy sauce over the rice pilaf is scrumptious and is paired with a generous cooling salad of baby greens with feta. You can... More

My wife and I found this to be one of the most delightful finds in Kihei when we visited in 2013. This year, as soon as we pulled into the Worldmark parking lot, my wife walked over and ordered coconut shrimp while I checked us in. Excellent food, great calamari, garlic shrimp, ahi... It doesn't get any better than this!

I almost walked away from the truck bc the cheapest meal was $14 but I am glad I stayed. I easily would have paid double that for what I got. Rice was a bit mushy but the salad was surprisingly very very good. The shrimp was incredible and he made my wife and I by far the best calamari we... More

We got to the truck as it was first opening for the day. The guy wax extremely friendly, and even gave us a sample of the calamari, and then made us a mixed dish of 2 different meats. He was very nice, and it was easy to talk to him. The food was delicious, and we loved the different sauces... More

Great to take out to the beach. The fish and the pork were really good. Rebecca is very friendly and will prepare the dishes as you want.

We tried this food truck based on the TripAdvisor reviews. This is one of the few times I didn't agree with the reviews. Our food was average at best. I had the coconut shrimp and my husband had the garlic shrimp. It was okay, but I would not seek it out again, nor would I recommend it to anyone else.
