Awesome after a day at the Sacred Pools

We didn't want to get cleaned up so we found this little gem! Yes it is a food truck... Some of the best food I have ever had! So accommodating. Coconut shrimp and mahi mahi combo with salad and rice pilaf!!! Yum! My husband had the spicy garlic shrimp... Also very delicious. Great prices

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.

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
