We ate at Kinaole Grill food truck the first day we got to Maui. We were hungry and tired and didn't feel like finding a restaurant. We each got a platter with fish, and an order of shrimp. It wasn't until we got back to the condo that we realized how small the portions were. The shrimp order literally had... More

I had read lots of reviews on tripadvisor so was excited to try the truck out. We just stopped by for lunch and we were not disappointed! We ordered the garlic shrimp ($15) and the crispy calamari($14.50) plates, both were excellent! If we had to choose which was better, both my husband and I would vote for the calamari. It... More

Decided to try this food truck based on reviews and was not disappointed! The fried calamari was the best I've ever had (seriously)! So light and tender and perfectly cooked. Loved the sauce on the side. My husband had the tonkatsu and wasn't as impressed with his choice as I was with mine. Side salad had fresh mixed greens and... More

Highly recommend this truck - this is one of the best eating places we tried in Maui! Love the crispy calamari (they were calamari steaks, not the tentacles) and, especially, the green salad that came with it. The salad itself is worth another visit! Steve was minding the truck for the owner and did a great job. Even gave us... More

Went there tonight because of the great reviews. We were not disappointed! We ordered the calamari, spicy grilled shrimp and the coconut shrimp. Came with fabulous rice and a salad that was to die for. The coconut shrimp were huge. My very handsome husband had a hard time finishing his meal. This was one of our best meals on the... More

Were running late and had just enough time to order our meal which was ready really quickly and we hustled our way down to the water. We ordered the mahi mahi. Fish was great and the plate was clean in no time. We had a few minutes to spare before the sun went down. Will definitely visit again before we... More

We stayed at worldmark Kihei for our honeymoon, and this food truck was parked just down the street every afternoon. I'm usually Leary of food being served out of a vehicle, but every time we walked past, it smelled and looked AMAZING. So finally, we stopped for dinner. We look our plates back up to our condo, and we both... More

We have consistently had the best seafood from this food truck! If you're near S. Kihei, give it a try. They are conveniently located next to The WorldMark Resort. We brought our food up to our lanai. If you're not staying there, the beach is right across the street. Everything is reasonably priced; you get an entrée, rice & a... More

Excellent (Not to salty like the luau's) Wife and I had the fresh fish combo's... Wow was it awesome. Nice salad as a side. Friendly... More
