“Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

We were hot, sticky and thirsty...to borrow a quote from a famous beer advert...'this ice shave refreshes the parts no other ice shave reaches'. We went back the next day and he remembered what we had ordered the previous day. Thank you Levi (Photographic Tours) for the recommendation.

“Melts in your mouth!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

First trip to Kauai and in the last 10 days have hit about 12 shave Ice stands. If not for a tour guide "Levi" on a photo tour we would have missed Hawaiian Blizzard! Thanks Levi as this was the best we have had...by far! Don't think we can beat the treat at this little stand. Coming back for 2nds when we head back to the airport. Don't drive by...twas the best!

“Delish Ice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

We found this place on TripAdvisor so we checked it out. The owner is a super kind man, who is a Christian. He sets up shop outside on the side of a building. He is very clean and neat about his set up. I enjoyed the Li Hing Mui flavor Ice. If you want to enjoy Shave Ice (no 'd') and don't care about your surroundings and want to bless a man and his business go there!

“quaint shop with a nice owner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013 via mobile

this is not your typical shave ice place. it's in a small run down shopping center and only open around 1:30pm weekdays and weather dependent. the owner is a very nice man, a Christian and a good heart. It's not the best shave ice ever but it's definitely worth it.

“It's not an ice cream shop, it's not a shop and there is no ice cream”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

We have driven to that address especially, only to find out that it's not a shop and that there is no ice cream.
Don't be fooled by the fact that he has a web site and pictures.
In a poor shopping center, outside a closed and empty shop, the owner of that so called "business" hangs on the wall outside a sign with it's name and on the floor there are several cool containers with shave ice. He has different colors and flavors of syrup and that's all.
I would never eat that food coloring and industrial flavor blitz.
