Maybe the best food truck on Maui

After reading a good Trip Advisor review of this food truck, my wife and I decided to give it a try last saturday afternoon. We showed up about 3, plenty of street parking available and there was only one other person making their order so there was almost no waiting whatsoever. I had the pulled... read more

Every visit to Maui we go to this food truck. I always order the coconut shrimp, always delicious, you get a good amount of very large prawns. Their salad and rice that are the side dishes are always tasty, it is a very good quality salad, goat cheese, some Mac nuts etc on it. A little pricey for a food... More

My husband and I stopped here to grab lunch. I got the seared ahi and my husband got the coconut shrimp. My seared ahi was good, but my husbands coconut shrimp was beyond good! I was hoping he would have some type of bbq available, but his menu changes and he wasn't serving any the day we went. I recommend... More

Both dishes we ordered were very enjoyable. A little bit of a wait, but that's what you get with freshly cooked food. It was restaurant quality and an enjoyable option if you fancy eating in whilst staying in local accommodation.

This food truck is always parked out front of the Worldmark condos. They always seem to be busy. Fish and calamari were great katsu was a little over cooked.

We scouted out the truck based off reviews & it did not disappoint. We had the mahi mahi and coconut shrimp & loved it all. Didn't know we were craving salad, but both of us wolfed ours down with barely a word between us. A great place for an afternoon bite - bring cash!

We drove past this food truck a few times & I said we must stop for the coconut shrimp. Oh boy, I was not disappointed. 5 HUGE , fat, juicy shrimp with rice and a lovely salad . Hubby had the pulled pork and said it was awesome. Only complaint was standing in the hot sun by our car on... More

Went here as first meal in Maui and we got the coconut shrimp plate as well as the spicy garlic shrimp plate. Both were good but not filling and we aren't big eaters. $14 for six pieces of shrimp isn't good value. We found the taco food truck down the road and had two more tacos each to complete the...

One of the things to try in Hawaii is food tucks, and how lucky we were that we stayed in apartment located close to Kinaole Grill parking location. We have eaten at different restaurants in Kihei, but they couldn't beat the impression of great taste of Kinaole Grill- so we were back for more, twice, three times. Food was just... More

Coconut shrimp: good portion, hot and crispy and delicious. Came with a sauce that I didn't eat but a friend said was good. We also had: Garlic Shrimp, fried mahi and fried ahi- all rave reviews. All meals with a good portion of a tasty green salad and rice. $14 plates- a great desk for the quality of this food... More
