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.

One of the best food trucks we have ever eaten at. Everything was outstanding and fresh. We ended up going back a couple of times! I recommend taking your food across the street to the beach for a beautiful sunset picnic. The pulled pork was our favorite. Panko Mahi Mahi was excellent too. Each dish comes with coconut rice and... More

We ate here 3 times during our stay in Kihei, the food was sooo good. Even the salad and rice was delicious! We sat on the curb by the truck each time. Coconut shrimp, panko Mahi, and calimari were all outstanding.

Now I seriously don't ever expect a decent meal from a food truck. I have got to start changing that expectation! Wowza! First of all, I wasn't even hungry. We were grabbing a bite for my husband. Secondly, I now sit here so stuffed I'm afraid the natives may try to bury me in a pit as a luau pig.... More

Didn't expect to fall in love with this food truck, but we did. One quick dinner turned into 3 return visits. A pretty decent price for a lot of food and was consistently delicious. Tried the coconut shrimp, spicy garlic shrimp, calamari and pulled pork. Every single one was terrific but have to give a special shout out to the... More

Let me start by saying "I Love Food". This is trip number 5 to Maui in 3 years and we have yet to find better food on the Island. You can drop $100.00 per person and still not get as good of food. The Coconut Shrimp (5) are fresh, plump, cooked to perfection and served with your choice of two... More

I reviewed Kinaole a couple of years ago and gave them a glowing review. I recently stopped by to pick up an appetizer size of coconut shrimp to take home. Much to my surprise, when I got home and took the foil off there were only three shrimp in the bowl. I paid $10 for 3 shrimp! While the shrimp... More

We ordered the seared ahi with wasabi and spicy garlic shrimp. Everything is supposed to come with rice, Mac salad and salad. We didn't realize we were missing our salad till we got home with our food. The lady also wasn't very friendly but it's all about the food. The salad was tasty with a creamy dressing and lots of...

I know I should be reviewing the proteins but the rice that came as a side is to die for. Reminds me of the Hainanese chicken rice flavor. My husband had the shrimp and said it was better than Geste Shrimp truck. My friends had the mahi mahi and the pulled pork and both were moist and delicious. Give it... More
