“Romy's is just plain YUM”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

First of all, note that many of the so-so reviews on here are for Fumi's and not for Romy's. These are two different shrimp shacks! Go to Romy's. The wait for 3 dishes (garlic shrimp, sweet and sour prawns, and fried shrimp) was about 20 minutes. As they say - good food - as fast as they can make it. I can't understand why people are complaining about ambiance. Its a shrimp shack people, be greatful they even have tables and a sink for you! As for the shrimp, a month later we are still thinking about it. Large, juicy, sweet, delicious and just plain YUM! The garlic was our favorite - garlic toasted to perfection and shrimp perfectly cooked. The sweet and sour prawns were flavorful and ENORMOUS. The fried shrimp are wrapped in a spring roll wrap. Not bad, just nothing special. Stick with the garlic shrimp and you will not be disappointed.

“Fresh garlicky shrimp!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

Incredibly fresh shrimp, to be sure, but *messy*! You'll need to dig in and get greasy to peel these shrimp, but they really are good! Can heartily recommend the garlic shrimp. They have a big sink outdoors where you can wash your hands.

Not fast food; you will need cash (ATM in back, charges $2 fee). Note that they close fairly early, so aim for lunch or early supper.

We finished off supper with mango popsicles. Yumm!

“Fumi's BLUE shrimp truck”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

YUM, YUM, YUM!!
Best and biggest shrimp ever!! Garlic shrimp was the best and they were HUGE!!
I dream about this shrimp at night, and I miss it. Will always go back to Fumi's
truck for shrimp when on North shore. It is fabulous. It might look a little
dumpy, but trust us.........it is the BEST!!!!

“Good shrimp truck”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

Shrimp came out a little cool and hard to peel.This was a good shrimp truck(how can you go wrong with garlic shrimp) but not the best. If you want the best check out Mackey's in Haleiwa!

“Tasty!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

The garlic shrimp is TASTY. Romy's has their shrimp farm behind the restaurant so you can see the small
farm canals from your table when you're enjoying your food. We tried their garlic shrimp and it was really really good! Romy's shrimp recipe calls for the garlic to be lightly toasted. Mmmmm.
