Great calamari and coconut shrimp, but way too pricey for what you get.

The food is delicious. We have to have a meal at the food truck every year. Our favourite menu items are the calamari and the coconut shrimp. However, the price is ridiculous for a food truck and eating on a curb. The meal is $14 which includes the shrimp or the calamari, rice and greens. No drink... read more

We read all good review about this place and decided to try it as it was close to our hotel. Food were just ok, nothing special and I was not sure about sanitary of this place. They don't have boxes, just plates covered with aluminum paper and we had to carry it to our hotel. they don't have place to... More

We stopped here late on a rainy night and ordered the calamari and coconut shrimp. The salad was great and the shrimp and calamari were pretty good, but not great. The price, $14.99, was reasonable for Maui and it was parked right next to our condo. Still, for that price, I would prefer to eat at a sit down restaurant... More

Not cheap, prices increased from $12 to $14 per entree. You can get the coconut shrimp and calamari alacarte for $10. Ordered the coconut shrimp and chicken entree, along with the calamari alacarte. Did I mention the food is deep fried. I was disappointed with the amount of shrimp, 4, and calamari, 6 small pieces. Yes they were good tasting... More

I ate here a number of times while I was in Kihei. The food is quick and delicious and a great value. But also, the lady who does the cooking is incredibly sweet. One day I'll be back, and I'll definitely stop by, even if I am not staying in Kihei.

We were looking for a tasty meal at something less than the resort price, and this was highly rated on trip advisor. We loved it. The coconut shrimp is great, and the mahi-mahi she recommended was also delicious. Plate comes with a fresh salad which was also delicious and a scoop of rice.

We ordered the Coconut Shrimp and Tempura Ahi and both were excellent, possible the best Coconut shrimp we've had and the Ahi, with the wasabi cream, was especially tasty. Takes a few minutes to prepare but then you know it's fresh, generous portions and tasty sides, definitely a repeat stop.

This truck parked right outside our condo, and we took full advantage. I loved the coconut shrimp, my husband loved the calamari. Generous portions! The salad was fresh and the pilaf had great flavor. Please try the cheesecake! It was so good!

the panko mahi was the best food we have eaten on maui in the 28 years of visiting. perfect fish, great ginger rice pilaf and delicious green salad. much tastier and exhibiting more kitchen skills than the very pricey restaurants in wailea. Plan to eat this scrumptious take-out food at the beach park or on your lanai and you will... More
