Made this our first food stop on the island. I had looked up some reviews and since this place had pretty good reviews I couldn't wait to try it. It was very easy to find. Located next to the Worldmark in Kihei. I ordered the spicy garlic shrimp and my husband ordered the seared ahi. We were both very satisfied... More

They have a food truck that is located on the street outside the Worldmark resort. The coconut shrimp is AWESOME. The calamari is good.

Who would have thought this would be our main venue for food. Great quality and value, with awesome spicy garlic shrimp and mahi mahi dinner. Calamari as an appetiser also hit the spot. The cheesecake was also very good. Only down side, wold be nice to have a bit more choice but understand the resrictions given it is a van.... More

I do love the quality of the food from this truck. I have ordered calamari and coconut shrimp and really enjoyed them. I decided this trip to enjoy ahi from as many places as I could because it's expensive and difficult to get Hawaiian ahi on the mainland. The ahi was good but it was definitely NOT seared as advertised.... More

If you think food (especially seafood) cannot be prepard from a truck, think again. The only coconut shrimp I have had that even came close to this is fresh shrimp I purchased at the dock and prepared myself the same afternoon. The calamari is tender and sweet and served with a knock your socks off sauce. If you have the... More

This food truck was so good! The coconut shrimp are amazing! We also had really good calamari and Mahi-Mahi. This is right next to the World Mark resort. Make sure to bring cash because they don't accept cards.

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 a meal by the pool (if you are... More

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!
