The shrimp was awesome (we got scampi & mild pineapple), but it doesn't come peeled. It's covered in the delicious sauce it was cooked in, but both my wife and I had it splash all over us when peeling. It covered and ruined her shirt...and she still thought the food was really good. Also be aware, it takes about 15... More

Great experience, friendly staff and delicious shrimp! Cash only, we recommend the Shrimp Scampi and the Spicy Pineapple Shrimp! Also a 2 minute walk to eat and watch some surfers!

I read the reviews on this truck before we left to come to Maui and I was so ready to try them. We ordered the Hawaiian shrimp scampi. It was a 25 minute wait but so worth the wait. The shrimp were perfectly garlicky and buttery, the rice was just that.. rice but the MAC/Potato/ crab salad was so good.... More

So I was on my own today because my wife was with the bride to be getting a mani-pedi. So I had to find a place to eat by myself. I look up TripAdvisor and there was The number one restaurant in Kahului Maui half a mile away. They make some damn fine shrimp. It was worth the wait.

Similar to the shrimp trucks on Oahu- lots of garlic and flavor with rice and a delicious macaroni salad. We drove from Kaanapali to Kahului every other day during our week long trip for their delicious food.

We decided to try this place out based on the good reviews. We tried the Scampi shrimp and the spicy pineapple. Scampi shrimp was too salty and had lots of butter and the spicy pineapple was good but I think they should provide some lime with it. It will go way better. Their business hours says 11am but The day... More

Visited this roach coach per Trip Advisor reviews as the #1 restaurant in the Kahului area near, parked nest to Kahului Park. if this is "the best" restaurant in the area, then I feel sorry for all the other restaurateurs in Kahului that are rated under this very low bar. If you are a local and you want a box-o-poorly... More

So full of flavour and the crab mac plus rice is the perfect accompaniment. Great sized shrimp and delicious, definitely coming back for another flavour before I leave!

We have headed for Geste Shrimp Truck three times during this visit to Maui. Spicy Pineapple so far takes the top place. I have three more days to sit, waiting in the car, napkins in hand, for the best meal we could have. Don't miss this experience!!! And order an extra scoop of the crab Mac- you won't be sorry!

My husband and I shared the Hawaiian scampi and the lemon pepper and both were fantastic! The shrimp isn't shelled, so get extra napkins as it is messy but so worth it! The crab Mac salad was a wonderful side - should have gotten two scoops!
