The reviews don't lie. This place is awesome. It's pretty much a requirement that you go to Ululani's when visiting Maui. You won't be disappointed.

Best shave ice ever. You have to taste it to believe it. There's no crappy aftertaste, just smooth, delicious flavors, almost creamy. Great flavor combinations as well. If you're hungry for something and don't want greasy food, check this place out! Two locations in Lahaina. The staff is very nice, and the prices are pretty reasonable.

Only place to eat Shave ice on Maui! We went twice and that wasn't enough. The staff is always super nice and talkative. You have to get ice cream on the bottom and snow cap on top. The ice is so shaved it is creamy, can't wait to get back for more!

I like this shave ice. I am not exactly a big fan of shave ice but the shave ice here tastes like any other shave ice. There is not really a very good, fantastic shave ice place in Maui. I think you should come here but do not expect an amazing shave ice.

Turns out it's not snow cone (crunchy ice pieces), it's like soft snow, and the flavors don't have that snow cone artificial taste, as they use nothing artificial. It is really good! Why don't they have this back in New York?

They say it's the best on the island, and it's true. Classic Hawaiian shave ice (not a sno cone!), including options to add beans and ice cream for a truly authentic experience. The portions are very generous -- you'll be more than satisfied with the micro! Dozens of flavors and flavor combinations. Highly recommend!

Look, there's shave ice and then there is Ululani's. It's a thing of beauty, with syrups that are so legit that the coconut and mango syrups left a "pulp" on the top of the shave ice which was obviously coconut and mango puree. Once you have eaten a shave ice here you'll be ruined for everywhere else. My suggestions -... More

Expect a line because it is the BEST! Servers are very helpful to recommend combinations to novices. The micro-small is plenty. I recommend the haupia (coconut ice cream) base rather than a snow cap (topping of condensed milk). Azuki beans are a must for an authentic shave ice experience. You really can't go wrong with any flavor combination after that.

Was the best Shave Ice I have had on the islands. So good that I had two. Tucked away but worth the time.

Last night I got shaved ice here. It was so yummy. The guy who made it was super friendly and recommended 2 of the favorites to help me pick my flavors. I got the Haleakala (I think)--the one I had was topped with sweetened condensed milk. Yum yumm! Well I was standing on the sidewalk just in front of the... More
