Got medium Lava flow shaved ice with macadamia nut Ice cream in bottom of cup. It was huge, could not finish it all! Very good! A short wait, about 6 people in front of us. Nice bench on sidewalk to finish it and people watch.

Delicious and very clean place...not a dump like Jo Jo's in Waimea.store is fun to browse around and husband can eat while wife shops. Great with ice cream in bottom of cup and not as filling as it looks. Good choice after a hot day on the beach or trail.

On our recent trip to Kauai, our family did the shave ice test. We sampled 6 different shave ice places on the island and Hee Fat was hands down the best! The ice was light and fluffy yet retained the syrup throughout. There was plenty of ice cream, the portions were generous, flavors were delicious without being too sweet and... More

If you are looking for shave ice made with real fruit flavouring - this is the best! I had the guava and lychee flavours, with the macadamia nut ice cream and it was absolute heaven! It puts all others to shame. If you go to Kauai, try Hee Fat's shave ice, you'll love it!

We tried shaved ice all over the island of Kauai and Hee Fat was by far the best. They keep their blades sharp and the ice is perfect. The prices were better than many other places. We made a special trip back on the day of our departure.

Without a doubt, my daughter's favorite place on the island. Souvenirs and Shave ice! We stopped in so often, by the end of our trip, the guys were recognizing us.

I kept reading that this was the best shave ice on the island. I grew up eating shave ice and had it every day I was in Maui last spring. This however was not good. The syrup tasted very artificial and the ice was not as smooth as I expected it to be.

We went Hee Fat today after bike riding, we were not sure what flavor to order and the young lady at counter gave us a free sample of rainbow cone. To tell the truth, every flavor was delicious and very natural and intense. Loved it! Will be back for more.

My son had us on a mission. He read in a guide that this was the best shaved ice on the island. We tried many. I don't know if it was the best, but it sure was good!

Stopped here based on Trip Advisor Reviews. The hot dogs were indeed delicious and reasonably priced; we especially enjoyed trying the different mustards theso we could put just the right one on our dogs. The shave ice was also delicious....not as big as some, but very fine and delicious. If you go outside and to your left, there are a... More
