Wow, I DO like shave ice!

I have always been a bit underwhelmed by sugary sweet shave ice but the delicious version served at Hee Fat changed everything. Be sure to spring for the real fruit syrups. The servings are HUGE so it may be fine to share. The only down side is there is really no easily accessible place to sit and... read more

Awesome Shave Ice options. We tried the fresh fruit guava large with vanilla ice cream at the bottom. The guava compote was unique and a great alternative to the sweet syrup style of most shave ice offerings.

So it's a fairly priced, amazing treat! The flavors were amazing, and you have to try one of the specials with ice cream on the bottom. The Lava Flow with mac nut ice cream on the bottom was so good, I had to have it twice! The shave ice order window is in the back of the general store. We... More

Most awesome coconut peanut butter ever. Come here for the shave ice, coupons make it even better. Sampled the flavored pb. Wow! Had to take home a container. Reminds of us Kauai every time we have some.

Best place for SHAVE ICE and hot dogs! super friendly staff. Try any flavor but add the macadamia nut ice cream on the bottom and the snow cap on top!

There are small differences in the many Shaved Ice places on Kauai. I prefer the softer, lighter shaved ice with the mac. nut ice cream. Hee Fat was perfect for us. Refreshing after spending a day outside. My daughter thought this was the best she had during our stay. They also like the hula skirt wine bottle cover they bought... More

Went here just a week ago, it's nothing special, they use that sweet corn syrup, and they have fresh fruit flavors, but mango didn't justify the actual fruit, don't recommend this place!

Based on reviews (and convenience to our condo) we tried Hee Fat's shave ice on our recent trip. Maybe it was just us but our order was not good at all. It was way too syrupy and the ice-cream at the bottom was blah. Everything kind of melted together into one giant, too-sugary mess before we could even enjoy it.... More

The snow cap is a must. Great selection of flavors. Have been HUGE fans of Halo Halo (Rice St) in the past. It was still good but we all (2 adults, 7 & 14 year olds) thought Hee Fat was better.

We tried every single shaved ice place while visiting, trying a new one each day, and came back to Hee Fat twice because we thought they were the best. I think their syrups had the best and most flavor out of all the places. Definitely order a "snow cap" when you get a shave ice, OH SO GOOD!! They drizzle... More
