The Kinaole food truck is always parked right across the street from my house in Kihei. It is a must for me every time I'm on back on Island. The Mahi Mahi and fried calamari are simply fantastic.

We showed up with our one-year-old, twenty minutes before closing time, with no cash (they don't accept cards) and no idea what we wanted. I don't remember anyone's names that was working that night but the two that were in the truck were fantastic. They were very patient and accommodating while my husband ran down the street to an ATM.... More

Very good quality food at a good price! There was plenty of parking on the road and it was very easy to find. I recommend giving this place a try.

This might be my first time at a food truck so not much to compare to. We took our food home and it was a delicious surprise. I had the garlic shrimp which were very good. Actually thought this was "better-than-restaurant" quality food at a reasonable price. There was a wait on a slightly busy night but it was worth... More

We ordered everything on the menu I think for our group of 5. All were amazing! You can't go wrong! One of the highlights of Oahu NS for us are the food trucks! We visit them often. So I was sooo happy to have searched and found Kinaole in Kehei before our trip because they are much more scarce it... More

We went here because of the reviews, and the food was worth the visit. Not greasy, good-size portions, and tasty. We ate at the park down the street from the truck and across the road. Beware, the birds are rather assertive at the park and not afraid to get close to your food.

We came from Colombia, and we were looking for a casual place to eat. We found that this food truck was very well rated, so we decided to go check it out and to our surprise the food was amazingly good and the truck was very clean. Recommend 100%.

We were passing through Kihei and saw that this was TripAdvisor's number one restaurant. We can see why! Food was wonderfully delicious and original. We took our plates a few hundred yards to the beach picnic area and had a perfect dining experience. We had four different entrees and all were five star meals. The salad and rice sides are... More

I had tuna, husband had spicy shrimp, kids split mahi, shared calamari as app. Sauces were impeccable, fish fresh and cooked to perfection, salad sooo good, and rice full of flavor - could not believe I was eating this quality of food while sitting on a curb - worth every last bite/lick of the plate.

Thank regs613
