We looked all over and finally asked several locals and Aoki's is not in business at this time. Don't try to find it because it is not there! The previous reviewer must have been at another shaved ice place. Matsumotos has been my favorite, the line is long but moves pretty quickly. I don't know how to review Aoki's 1-5... More

Being new to shave ice, I was happy to have the ladies of Aoki's explain the various toppings. One even insisted that I try the bee pollen first to be sure I would like it. Fast service, tasty syrups, and great service make Aoki's a must-visit in Haleiwa.

This is one of our favorite treats when we visit the North Shore. We were so disappointed to find out the building was tore down. We were told they are rebuilding, I hope so, they really do have the best shaved ice on the island!!

A dear friend said we must stop here, and I bless and curse the day I did. INCREDIBLE fun... and I want more of it... and you can't find it in Michigan! The line moves quickly, and just have fun with it!

absolutely, we loved it - we were even challenged to compare it to matsumoto, the argued 'king of shaved ice'. its equivalent - but we certainly loved the lack of the 30+ person lineup and thus able to get in and out of Aoki's in 5 minutes instead of the 20 at Matsumoto's.

Aoki's has great shave ice. We were lucky to be there on their last day of business. Sad it has closed but hopefully they will open in a new location. Friendly owner.

We visited Aoki's twice in the last week of August prior to their location shuttering down until their move across the street. By far the best Shave Ice we have had. The consistency of snow (something we know too much about!) great flavour and friendly staff. We hope to visit their new location across the street on our next visit.

Locals know the shave ice here is much better than Matsumoto's. Delicious, soft and great flavors. Get the ice cream and the beans in the bottom as well, its so good. The are closed down now, moving across the street and down a little ways hopefully will reopen soon!!

On our last day on Oahu, we were in Haleiwa and stopped into Aoki's. The consistency of the shave ice was much finer than anything we'd had before. It was like snow. My daughter got ice cream in the bottom, but I just got the plain shave ice. We both really enjoyed this treat. It was the best shave ice... More

not a long of line as Matsumotos, so i went here for what I assume is a pretty comparable shave ice experience. it was great, nice workers, and a good selection. make sure to get the ice cream and beans with your ice.
