When we were here in October they had not reopened yet. We arrived yesterday and it was our choice for our first dinner. We are never disappointed. My partner had the grilled ahi and I had the spicy grilled shrimp. We're here for three weeks...and will probably visit the truck twice a week. We always pleased with our meal.More

Absolutely delicious! My family had the calamari , grilled mahi mahi , & the coconut shrimp and everyone enjoyed it. The salad and rice that come with the dinners so freaking good. I may have to go back before we leave.

I always hate to review this food truck because it's my absolute favorite place to eat in Kihei and I selfishly hate the thought of longer lines as others discover them. This trip I had my favorite coconut shrimp three times. My husband had the...fried mahi mahi, the mahi mahi with pineapple salsa and the mahi mahi with mango salsa. He pronounced the one with pineapple salsa the best fish of the trip. I adore their salad too, though it varies from day to day. For some reason, I always think the food is best on the days the blond woman is working up front- may just be coincidence.More

Really great food truck, probably the best I’ve ever experienced. The super nice lady (chef) really knows her stuff! 30+ years and still excited about it / having fun cooking. I really enjoyed our visit and the Mai Mai plate with gourmet salad and THE...BEST RICE. Love it - it’s not cheap - but it’s one of the top TripAdvisor ranked restaurants in Kihei for a solid good reason. This lady/owner is passionate about her food. We parked next to the food truck, one block away from the beach, under some nice shade trees in our rented Camaro convertible and slammed lunch. It’s great finds like this that set the pace for a great day on an awesome vacation.More

Had the chicken katsu. Used to think the now shuttered Da Kitchen was the best. This truck is WAY better. Instead of chicken strips there were 3 large fillets of meat. Salad was mixed greens, not just lettuce. Not being a rice fan I was...pleasantly surprised by the scoop they served. I could eat a full meal of it. Been back several times only to find the truck gone and their mini van there as a place holder. The Aloha Thai Fusion truck was there each day though. Will want to try the calamari that many have raved about.More

We ate at Kina'ole two nights in a row, it was that good! We had the calamari (yummy!), grilled mahi, and cajun shrimp. All of it was delicious! I also loved the rice and salad that came along with it. It's a great value!

Drove over an hour to eat here and they weren’t at the location. It says they are open on their Facebook page. Make sure they are open before you drive all the way for nothing.

We tried the Kinaole Grill Food Truck based on reviews by Trip Advisor. It did not disappoint. The employees were very friendly and did a great job explaining the menu items. We tried the calamari, mahi mahi, and coconut shrimp. All three were amazing. The...batter is very light and tasty on the calamari and mahi mahi. The shrimp were good sized. All had great dipping sauces. They came with rice and salad. The salad was fresh and the dressing tasted really good. The rice was seasoned too perfection. We will go back for sure. Prices are great also. You can't go wrong here!!!More

We ordered Ahi and Mango Salsa Mahi Mahi. They probably would have tasted fine but all we could taste was the paprika. Stop it with the paprika!! All these pieces of fish need is a little salt and pepper. 1/14/21
