“Shave Ice Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

I was reading the reviews on Trip Advisor and we had to stop off at The Shave Ice Paradise to taste for ourselves. It was a yummy treat to say the least. The staff were very helpful when choosing flavors! After ordering we were able to relax on a picnic table to enjoy.

“Best Shave Ice in Kaua'i”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Sure, everyone has their opinion about who has the best shave ice...Ten years ago I would have said JoJo's, but I think SIP is doing it much better now...Ice is soft, flavors penetrate through to the bottom, and the staff is fast and friendly. Definitely worth a stop.

“Best Shave Ice we had in all of Kauai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

This was the first of many shave ices we tried as we toured Kauai and it was by far the best. Other stores the flavors were from mass produced bottles and not very good. I don't know where they get their syrups, but they were much better. We wish we gone there more times than twice. Benches on the lawn were nice to sit at and enjoy the town as we ate them.

“Ok ... just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Good when it's to hot outside. Not the best one. Service is not really there... Pay and go. No flavor in the bottom of the glass.

Kauaigirl123, Manager at Shave Ice Paradise, responded to this review, September 21, 2013
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We appreciate your business and your feedback about your experience. We take a lot of pride in making a top-quality product & providing excellent service and as you can tell from our other reviews we usually get this right. Unfortunately it sounds like in your case, we did not. I apologize if you received anything less than outstanding customer service and delicious, fluffy shave ice. If you are still on the island, please stop back by and we'll gladly make you a new shave ice at no charge. Just ask for Julie & mention your review on Trip Advisor. Also please let us know if you would like extra syrup. Everyone likes theirs a little different and we'll gladly make it exactly like you want it. Thank you again for your business. We hope you enjoy your time on beautiful Kauai!
