Description: This is the only shrimp truck on Maui. Shrimp trucks are very popular on Oahu, so I wanted to compare/rate this business.

“Worth the trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

The truck is located on the east side of Maui by the harbor on the north side. We had read about it and found it by chance when we drove around the north end of Maui. So glad we found it! The Shrimp was wonderful! We will go back for sure.

“As good as Oahu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014 via mobile

Went there with the family while in Kahului. We got two Hawaiian scampi (garlic shrimp) plates and one hot dog plate for my 5 year old (thought it was a "hot dog" with sides, but was served cut up in garlic like the shrimp plate). All were delicious - would absolutely go back again.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

Had the garlic butter shrimp and spicy pineapple shrimp - would highly recommend both! The shrimp is very fresh and of a medium-large size. Everything is cooked fresh, so there is a 10-15 min wait, assuming a shorter line. Definitely one of the better shrimp trucks I've had while in Hawaii. The location is not that scenic, though, and it would've been nice to have a place there to sit while eating (we ended up taking away to eat in the car in a parking lot down the street).

“Fantastic garlic shrimp!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

Don't be turned off by the location or the truck itself. Unbelievable garlic butter shrimp. It is served with rice and a macaroni salad served in a lovely white styrofoam container. No seating, find a place to park near the shoreline and enjoy. 12 good size shrimps. Fantastic garlic taste swimming in butter.
Wonderful taste!

“Broke da mouth shrimp”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014 via mobile

Hands down the best shrimp truck in Hawaii. I've tried many shrimp trucks on the other islands and none come close to Geste shrimp truck. They have four different styles to pick from and a meal come with rice and macaroni salad or just order the Pupu plater that come with a dozen shrimp and none of the extras. The spicy pineapple shrimp is the most popular. It's a must try if you are in the area.
