Wow! We loved it!

We read about the infamous shaved ice in Maui and had to give it a try. We waited in line for 45 minutes in the burning sun. Many moments we were ready to bow out due to the heat, but... after much patience found the wait was well worth it! We ordered two large shaved ice with the snow cap... read more

Everyone will tell you that Ululani's is the BEST, and they are correct! This is truly authentic shave ice with amazing flavors and add-ins like ice cream, "snowcaps" and li-hing powder. So many locations to choose from and the owner, David, is awesome!

We tried shave ice at the Hyatt Regency branch of Ulalani's. Quick, efficient, and friendly service. There is a myriad of flavors. Our only regret was that we went on the last day of our trip. Go early in your trip so you can go back and try other flavors.

If the line is past their rope stanchions and umbrellas be prepared to wait for an hour. The line moves at a snail's pace, but it is worth the wait. My wife got strawberry/passion fruit/pineapple and I got cherry/passion fruit and coconut, and both were excellent. Ululanis uses real fruit juices and purées to make their flavors, and you can...

You have to try shave ice while in Hawaii! I got the rainbow with the macnut ice cream!! Soon good! The kids and mu husband loved it too! Fun spot and then you can walk with your shave ice along Front Street!

We went during spring break in March, around 3:45 ish, got back in the car around 4:50. Great service, very friendly and helpful. But a really long wait! The three of us got micro sizes for $3.95 each. The largest being 5.95. The micro was perfect for the two adults but even a little much for the child. So don't... More

This review is for all of their stores! So good. Get the toasted coconut on top, get the snowcap, go multiple times. We went a number of times on our trip to Maui and really enjoyed each different flavor we tried. Their service may seems slow depending on which person is working, lines can move slow, and their hours may... More

We hit Ululani's a couple of times each week for shave ice. The Kihei location is our favorite. The ice is great and the service is friendly and the portions are huge.

It's the homemade syrups that really shine here. Tigers blood sounds frightening, but it's mango infused flavor could be addictive! Huge portions! Served as lunch for us on one day. Went back 3 times in one weeks a vacation.
