We have heard a lot about this food truck so we had to give it a try. We checked out the menu a few days prior...basically 6-7 different plates to choose from so we all had something different. We had the mahi, the coconut shrimp and the chicken. The mahi was just prefect and I could not believe the size... More

Food truck with no seating but near waterfront park with picnic tables. Open 11 to 8 PM. We had pulled pork and crispy calamari. The calamari was thick fingers of calamari steak deep fried and tender. The sauce was heavily mayonnaise so just a little went a long ways, otherwise covered all the calamari flavor. Interesting seasonings on the rice... More

On my food truck 'hunt', I found this one a map/web search for the local area we were driving through this day. It's parked on a side street right off the main road (a 'regular' location) ....and plate portions are huge! Prices are in line with other trucks (which I found to be high all over the 2 islands we... More

My wife and I ate there twice we have had the calamari, coconut shrimp, mahi mahi, and seared ahi. All were wonderful, I do not think that anything they serve would be a poor choice. My favourite was the seared ahi. I look forward to the day I will be able to eat here again.

We went twice on this trip. Both times were awesome experiences. The people were friendly and helpful. The food was spectacular. Highly recommend both the coconut shrimp and the mahi mahi. The rice pilaf is very flavourful. The salad has a nice dressing and wonderful extras of macadamia nuts and feta cheese. This food truck is the real deal.

My wife and I made a late night stop to this delightful food truck after debating whether or not to go to the famous Mamas Fish House. We followed the smooth paved roads from where we were staying in Wailuku for about 25 minutes. Then, we seen a truck with bright red lights pulled over to the side of the... More

Parked right outside the big WorldMark complex, this food truck delivers delicious food at prices well below what you'd pay at a sit-down restaurant. We tried the garlic shrimp, the pulled pork, and the mahi mahi with lemon dill sauce, and all were excellent--and priced at $15 or less. Accompanying each entree is a very nice salad of organic greens... More

Friends who have eaten at this food truck raved about it, so I gave it a try on my recent vacation, as did all my travelling companions. Hands down, best coconut shrimp I've ever had!! My mom and I shared an order, which was an ample size for the price. Delicious rice and salad as well. My travelling companions fully... More
