Not fast but delicious. Shrimp aren't fully peeled but I've learned to not care, wife still peels. Such flavor, great size shrimp, reasonable price, worth the visit!

I had read about Geste Shrimp Truck in Kahului (I don't know where) & we decided to try to find it. Thank you GPS! You go up to the window of the truck and order, and you may have to wait 35 minutes or so, because each order is done individually. It was great. It was an unusually rainy and... More

Amazing how much flavor can come out of a pretty unassuming spot. These guys and gals are the shrimp pros! You just step up to the truck, order your type of shrimp and it comes with rice and crab macaroni salad (very tasty as well) on the side. Or skip the sides and get two extra shrimp for the same...

Went on a Saturday. Waited 10 minutes to order and then another 45 minutes for food. Food is excellent and it's affordable. However the truck is parked on the side of a busy highway. There was barely a place to park and there is no place to sit and wait or sit and eat. There isn't a garbage can to... More

I did some internet searching before stopping by this food truck. We had to wait almost 45 minutes for our food, but boy was it worth it. I got the spicy pineapple lunch plate, and my husband got the hot and spicy lunch plate. Both were excellent. The line was long, with mostly locals - which was a terrific sign... More

What can I say that hasn't been said. $13 for big shrimp, rice and a crab pasta salad. After reading reviews here a made a "to-do" on my list. It was very close to the airport so I went to Geste's straight from there. When I arrived there were two people in front of me. My first impression was not... More

I had the spicy pineapple shrimp and have never had a better dish. $13 for 12 large shrimp, rice and pasta salad (pasta was okay). Amazing deal for amazing food. Don't pass by this food truck without stopping. YUMMY!!!

It's simple food, but just super yummy. We tried almost everything on their menu. You'll want to back. Heads up though, it takes a good 10-15 minutes to have your food ready.

Of all of the shrimp trucks we have visited on several hawaiian islands, this one is simply the best to us. We have been to this truck 3 times within 8 days. The Hawaiian scampi is simply delicious. The shrimp are split and de-veined and pulling the shell off is easy. They are also good size. The other varieties are... More
