Food was good, but not the best I've had. It's a neat experience so worth a stop for one meal. It was surprisingly expensive (for a food truck)...around $14 per plate, but it is Hawaii...:)

We ordered spicy shrimp and garlic shrimp. Spicy dish was pretty hot! Served over rice garlic shrimp also tasty. Closes on the early side for dinner.

This is less than 10 minutes from Turtle Bay Resort. Go for it!! Very nice staff and great plates! We got their garlic shrimp plate to share and it was very hot and fresh! I wish I had gotten my own plate.

Many suggested that we eat at Giovanni's. I agree if you are going to north shore you should grab a Meal at Giovanni's. For dinner allow a minimum of one hour. The shrimp was easy to peel and very tasty! It is close by Turtle...More

The shrimp is cooked to perfection and the portion size is ideal. Priced well, too and so nice to be able to eat outside.

You will have to ask the chef. Shrimp, of course, are gluten free and there's a good chance that the lemon/butter shrimp are gluten free, but the butter could contain gluten ingredients. Also, it's a tiny kitchen, so I... More
