Got to our hotel around 5 pm. Had seen the reviews for this place and it was close by, so we decided to try it. Glad we did! The Chicken Katsu was wonderful!

One of the best meals we had on the island and completely unexpected. We were in a rush and things around Kihei were all closing so we decided to try this place. Everything we had was excellent. - chicken katsu - perfect - coconut shrimp...- perfectMore

We got our dinners here two nights during our 2wk stay (family of 8). Food was amazing, with plenty left for lunch the next day. Chicken, Maha-mahi & Coconut shrimp dinners (and accompaniments) all excellent. And the two women handling all orders & cooking were...great. 5 stars!More

The calamari was huge, the mahi mahi was fabulous. The salad was loaded with dried cranberries, and the rice was spectacular. Due to the State of Hawaii banning indoor dining for the non-vaxxed the food truck business is booming and this one does. It disappoint!

My daughter and I were looking for a quick bite before the sunset in Kihei and we read several reviews about this Food Truck. It is a block from the beach (Kam I) and was terrific. I had the Mahi Mahi, and she had the...chicken - both were fantastic, but the sauce for the chicken was quite unique and wonderful. Both came with good rice and a nice/creative salad. We went back the next night for the coconut shrip - very good, but did not top the Mahi Mahi. The Ahi also looked amazing. Took the food to the picnic benches and watched the sunset - heaven. Strong recommendation for this! No drinks, but the ABC store is a 2 minute walk across the street - enjoy!More

Their Crispy Mahi is a must try. Comes with salad, rice, sauce, and at a sizable portion--enough for two meals for two people. Service was prompt, courteous, and I was happy that they accepted all credit cards.

Excellent fresh food and Becca is a sweetheart! Cooked right in front of us. I loved the coconut shrimp and my husband loved the calamari. We went twice!

Have been in Hawaii for a week and a half. Use Tripadvisor regularly in picking our places to eat out. This was by far our best meal and from a "food truck"!! We both ordered Grilled Mahi Mahi with mango salsa, specialty salad with mixed...greens, dried cranberries and feta cheese and fried rice. All parts of the dinner were excellent and would recommend it to anyone. Thanks again to the reviewers on Tripadvisor.More

We ate at lots of food trucks while staying nearby recently. We liked it, but it was not the best casual fish meal we had. It was a bummer that they didn't have the cheesecake and the pulled pork everyone has raved about, but the...coconut shrimp, ahi and mahi mahi were good, not great. I'd give it a pass next time.More
