Don't let the mobile nature of this venue throw you off, this is gourmet eating on the go!! Whether it's the coconut shrimp or grilled Ahi, it's genius grill and the owner is wonderful. Take your bite to the beach and enjoy!!

Can't say enough about the Kinaole Food truck. Limited options done very well. The ahi tuna was cooked perfectly. The rice side was so flavorful and the salad was not just a spoon of mixed greens plonked on the side. It was dressed with a great vinaigrette and topped with feta & pine nuts. This was our favorite meal of... More

Stopped here for lunch, which we ate across the street at one of the Kam I beach park picnic tables. We got the guava BBQ pulled pork and the seared ahi and both were absolutely fantastic. The rice and salads that came with them were both delicious, too. We will be back!

We ate here 4 times during our stay and were just as impressed with the last 3 as we were with the first. There's a reason this little food truck is so highly rated. Most meals come with a really good salad topped with feta cheese and macadamia nuts and very tasty rice. Our favorites were the spicy garlic shrimp,... More

Came here late at night and brought the food back to our condo (there's no picnic tables to eat at) and it was amazing. Lots of food for the price, and as I'm writing this review I am thinking of going back before we leave Maui. Definitely make this a stop on your trip.

We made a hard left turn when we saw the plates that people were carrying across the street at a light. This place is in the Top 5 Food trucks I have eaten at world wide. Ignore the people who say $14 is too much - you arent at McDonalds. The Mahi and coconut shrimp were the bomb! The sides... More
