The very best Shave Ice I've ever put in my mouth! Makes me want another one!! Quick, affordable, friendly service!! We will definitely go back! Very close/within walking distance to Cholo's Mexican restaurant, too!

It's our favorite place to get shave ice! They use the best ice cream. The staff is very friendly. Sometimes the store gets a little crowded, but no complaints!

You must try the shaved ice at this place. Allegedly, it is the only place on the island where the syrup for the shaved ice is made on the island from products of the island. And I believe it to be true after trying it. I got mine hawaiian style where they put a scoop of ice cream in the... More

We visited this store during the weekend of the local art festival---parking was extremely limited but we lucked out and found paved parking in this lot. This store is located next to a pretty outdoor mall. We found many souvenirs made in Hawaii to bring home here.

Marvel at the line at Matsumoto's and keep going until you get to the Aloha general store. It's apparently a slow process to make shave ice but it's worth the wait. I'm not a shave ice expert but it was really good and refreshing with ice cream on the bottom and condensed milk on top.

I think it's better than Matsumoto's. They think so too since they've got a sign showing why their shave ice is the best. Is it? Dunno but it's good. And short lines. And buy two, pay for 1 1/2 with the coupon in the Oahu brochure. I'd try them again.

Great Shaved Ice, including ice cream and topping. Many other interesting products in the store, like coconut peanut butter. Great stop after visiting shrimp trucks on the way into Haliewa
