We have eaten here twice during our vacation! The food is really fresh and the service(especially by Nicolas)was excellent. It is BYO but there is a supermarket right across the road where you can buy some drinks! Don't go expecting the ritz here but if you like good fresh food with exceptional service then give it a try!

This place was recommended to us by some locals. Awesome place! The selection of local food and unique plates was unbelievable and the quality was exceptional. The owner used to run a food truck and business was so good he opened this business - great move. A great break from typical tourist food. They only accept cash so keep this... More

They are now on a lot with other food trucks just below Star Noodle and across from the church. Still good, and creative food and they are opening a restaurant.

I dream about this place now... My husband and I ate here a couple times during our honeymoon, and it was one of the highlights of our trip! The food was really fresh, tasty, and moderately priced (for Maui!) We had fish tacos, Hawaiian steak and cheese sandwiches, roasted corn, and a burger with blue cheese. All were fantastic. Right...

Minimal ambiance but good food. We enjoyed eating our lunch outside at the Shark Pit. The tacos were delicious, with tasty fish and some spice to make it different.

It's sometimes about just the food, or just the setting, or the characters you meet. This place was about the great food and the characters. Glorious tacos served by guys who you'd like to have as mates i reckon. I can't vouch for his knowledge of cricket, but the food was absolutely spot on. Now if the setting was better???... More

This, in my humble opinion, is my absolute favourite food truck in all of Hawaii. I just loved their menu, with an inspired menu and cooked well. Friendly and cheerful guys work this joint. I had two serves. Great tacos packed with loads of flavour. Burgers in taro buns were great and my go-to dish is the Hawaiian cheesesteak, which... More

Wish we'd found this place sooner! It was AMAZING! You MUST go there! It is a small truck with some others around, make sure you go to the right one and enjoy!

Passed by every day for a week with intentions to stop.....finally did on day 7 and regret not stopping earlier. I had vegan tacos and my husband had the funky fish tacos. Everything is made from scratch on the spot. Absolutely fantastic food, the staff was super friendly, don't miss it if you're in Maui.

Tacos (both fish & shrimp) lived up to the hype. Just be prepared to wait. The first day we went they had already sold out of the tacos for the day so you may want to go early to ensure they have what you want!
