    This place is a tourist trap! The shrimp is not fresh Kahuku shrimp, it's shipped frozen from the mainland. Go to Romeys instead, they are the only place that has fresh Kahuku shrimp.

    The North Shore's shrimp "food truck", and it's been around much longer than the trendy food trucks in LA!

    Garlic shrimp are tasty and messy! Come with shells on so you've got to peel them.

    Expect a 1 hour+ wait. But get a corn on the cob at Woody's nearby and some shoyu poke from Kuhuku Superette while you wait!

    Get the scampish with garlic on your rice and hot sauce for dipping! I'd recommend draining the oil from the plate b4 digging in. Bon appetite!

    It wasn't very good. Small chewy shrimp. The flavor just wasn't there. Got the scampi + they were oily. Don't believe the hype. Try Blue Water Shrimp Truck on the other side of the North Shore instead

    Didn't care for the chilli spicy shrimp. Garlic shrimp was good. Has romy's the day before. Hard to say whose was better but I liked the excessive burnt garlic at romy's.
