Try all the flavors ... I don't think you can go wrong. The young folks working there were having lots of fun while making our order, and my daughter loved all that cool as much as the shave ice. There is a bit of waiting, depending on when you go - we had to stand for less than 5 minutes... More

Okay, there are two stores within walking distance. That is how popular these places are. Both have lines just pick one and do your wait time because the result is amazing. After trying the other store I had to go back and get another shaved ice the next day. So I decided to try the other store. The workers were... More

I didn't know I liked shaved ice until I came here! I let my husband order and I was just going to try a bite of his- I ate nearly half of it! The mango was my favorite flavor, but he enjoyed the guava and passion fruit just as much. The staff there was also super friendly. They talked with... More

This place really is as great as all these reviews say. We went here at least 4 or 5 times during our trip to Maui. I didn't think there could be that much of a difference between shaved ice joints but with the selection of flavours, available addons, and amazing taste, this place is far superior to other spots on...

I had the pineapple/passion/strawberry combo and that was great. Everyone should try that in Maui at least once. I suggest as a desert after eating at LahainaLuna cafe.

My nephew had never had a shave ice so we took him to Ululani's and he fell in love just like we had. We had the rainbow but I just don't think you can go wrong. There is just no ice in california that I've found with this powdery melt in your mouth consistency. They must have magic shaver machines... More

Ululani's is an absolute must visit on Maui. The people working the counter are super nice and talkative. Being the Easter Bunny, I've been to many shaved ice parlors on the island and none compare to this one.

After trying many different shave ice places - Ululani's was just simply the best. They have a great selection of flavors with suggestions that make it easy. The Local Motion and Root Beer Float were our families favorites. The staff were very friendly and efficient at the same time. All in all - this is the place to go for... More

I used to look forward to going there in Kihei, Kahului, and Lahaina. Yet, I don't know if the popularity changed it, but the ice is different. It is more soupy and not so delicious anymore. Another thing is the loooong line and staff just patting the ice with bare hands no gloves or anything....

Aloha Kaliaway, I am really sorry for your experience at our shop. I really appreciate your feedback, however I need to point out that everyone of our employees that is "shave certified" uses a glove to "hand pat" and shape our shave ice. The hand that holds the cup will normally not have a glove on but as I said,... More
