Great Food Truck by Kamaole Beach 1 (and Worldmark)

Ate here a couple of times on our last trip, the food is always good and reasonable priced ($15 for plate lunch). The coconut shrimp with Guava butter sauce was outstanding, my grandson enjoyed the Calamari. Have never had bad food from this truck. Friendly service too. Stop here and then enjoy... read more

Back in Australia you don't get food from a van anywhere this good nor is it common. I absolutely loved kinaole grill! Delicious food at restaurant quality and amazing service to boot! Thanks Mike! :)

Went to many reported five star restaurant in Maui but this one beats them hands down. You can take your dinner right down to the beach at sunset and enjoy the best of Maui!

Such good food! My family and I have eaten most of then menu, from the calamari and the coconut shrimp. Even though it is a bit pricey (14$ a dish), the quality is totally there. I would 100% recommend this and will return when i am close by. Below is the mahi mahi and coconut shrimp.

We were staying at the WorldMark in Kihei, Maui. On this stay and on prior visits, we've noticed the Kinaole Grill food truck parked on the street (almost) in front of the resort, but never bothered to try it. Almost a food-snob attitude here; i.e. how could a food truck produce a meal that could outdo what you would have... More

This is a food truck and the Garlic Shrimp was fantastic. Probably the best shrimp I have ever had. Great Find!

Wow! So conveniently located outside the condo we were staying in and just didn't feel like cooking or going out. The perfect solution! We each ordered something different and were pleasantly surprised. Fair pricing, great quality and good portions. I got the last Crispy Calamari available, husband got the spicy garlic shrimp and daughter ordered the pulled pork. Everything tasted... More

This is a great find we had. The food is amazing and the service is even better. All the food is fresh and there is a delightful beach nearby. The price can't be beat for the quality. This is a must for anyone visiting Maui.
