This was a daily visit while in Maui once we learned about it. The line was very long and the customer service top notch. The ice was shaved to be soft, not coarse. The flavors were also good. Excellent treat for the whole family

This was the first time I'd ever had shave ice and my-oh-my, what a treat! Never had anything like it, and can't wait to get more. Next time I must remember to ask for the ice cream in the bottom though. The guys working the day I was there were super friendly and we enjoyed sitting at a table and... More

What makes this shaved ice so good and better than all the rest? Hmm...I would say 1) the shaved ice itself that is like soft snow that melts in your mouth, 2) the many varied flavors that are not too sweet or syrupy but distinct and authentic, and 3) the loving care of the staff as they shave and perfectly...

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
