Ice with mufti-color sugar syrup! You will get a sugar high, beware of feeding it to the kids! The staff is courteous....not much else to talk about!

I must admit this was the first Hawaiian shave ice I've ever eaten, so maybe I'm biased, but boy is it good. Serving size is huge and the favors with the ice cream at the bottom is amazing! A must stop!

When it's hot outside, if you're not getting Ice Cream, get shaved ice. Tropical treat, easy to enjoy and helps cool off after the beach or just a normal hot day in the summer... can't be beat!

You can't survive the hot weather without a daily shaved ice. They are large in size and you have choices of 3-4 flavors at a time. Price is right!!

A nice, refreshing treat in the middle of a hot day. Clean. Very Hawaiian! Not much else you can say ... the program wants me to type more characters ... it's shave ice. It's good.

Shave Ice is nothing like a snow cone. Very flavorful. Great with a scoop of ice cream in the bottom!

The shave ice was just ok but the shakes were wonderful, especially the chocolate. Did notice the locals came in for shave ice tho.

Happy to find this place for shave ice so close to our hotel. It was really good. Their sign said hours open were from 12:00 to 5:00, but that is not really the case. They open and close when they feel like it. One day we were there at about 12:30 and they weren't open. Also, they told us that... More
