Awesome

Friendly, helpful service and delicious. The "small" serving is huge. If by chance you don't think you got enough syrup on your ice, they'll pour on more until you're happy. Great snack on a hot day.

Really tasty shaved ice. It's very finely shaved and packed in snow so it holds the flavor. Can get up to 3 flavors. Tigers blood was my favorite. Excellent friendly service

You've been reading the reviews and realize there are long wait lines. Just remember that there are two of these within a block of one another on the main strip in Laihana. This was very close to the pier where we tendered in from a cruise ship. I did the micro size ($3.99) which was plenty for me with macadamia... More

One look at the line and I figured this place must be great. And it was. It took 15 minutes to order in but it was worth it. The shaved ice flavors are great... and so is the amazing ice cream at the bottom. There are lots of shops to browse while you're eating. And you'll want to take your... More

First off, I don't even like snow cones so I was not pleased when my travel companion decided to wait 45 minutes to order a shave ice at this place. However, after a few minutes of standing in line on Front St and hearing people RAVE about how fantastic it was, I was curious to try it. So I got... More

This chain did it the best. We stayed on Maui and Kauai, and no place in Kauai ever got it right like in Maui, but this chain, particularly the 2 in Lahaina (about a block from each other) were the best hands down! I think the trick is that teenagers are better at making these than grown ups, because they... More

If you want the best, go to the best. Don't dink around with other "closer" or "more convenient" locations. You came to Maui for the best shave ice in town and Ululani's has it! Get the snow cap - its weird, but worth it. Hands down the best shave ice on the island or for that matter, the world. This... More

This is an absolute must do while in Maui. The shave ice is awesome. Make sure to get the snow cap. Also the employees were super friendly.
