“Worth the Trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

Head to the North East Shore of Oahu... you will notice many shrimp stands along the
Grown on the spot...deliciously fresh from ponds behind the place, we ate at the “Fumi's Shrimp Shack" itself... Garlic shrimp fit for a King & Queen!

“Great food truck”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

We had 3 different dishes: spicy shrimp, ginger shrimp and shrimp tempura, and all were fantastic. Very flavorful. I usually don't like fried stuff as much, but the tempura was so fresh, I was very pleasantly surprised that I liked it just as much as the other preparations. Also, while not the main focus of the dish, the rice was exceptionally good. I don't really know how to explain what makes rice any better than usual... texture, flavor... but the rice here was far better than typical. I highly recommend Fumi's Shrimp Truck!

“Fumi's Shrimp Shack”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Lew & June actually ate at their shack where they have picnic tables. The meal was excellent. The shrimp came with some rice and very fresh salad and a piece of pineapple. It was just the right touch. They accept cash only which we had expected because of our book from Andrew Doughty "Oahu Revealed".

“Good shrimp”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

There are lots of shrimp trucks and shacks on this area of the island, and Fumi's was the only one we tried, so I can't offer a comparison. That being said, I got the spicy garlic shrimp and my wife got the fried coconut shrimp, both of which were very good. The spicy garlic shrimp was certainly spicy (it's heat almost caught me off guard) and the coconut shrimp were nice and crunchy without being greasy. The plates were both served with white rice, salad, and a slice of pineapple. There were several tour buses present, so our wait for our food was a bit longer that I would have expected (20 minutes or so).
