4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2011

Kids got the shave ice and I got a smoothie. Both were really good. Prices did seem high, and shave ice was definitely more expensive here than other places, at least by $1.00 more for the same size. Shopping center it is located in is very nice.

We always love getting shave ice when we are in Hawaii. In the past, finding shave ice near the Grand Hyatt was difficult unless we were willing to go to more "rustic" stands. Since the last time we were in Poi'pu/Koloa, a new shopping center has opened not far from the Hyatt with this wonderful shave ice place called Uncle's.

The keiki and regular shave ice sizes are very generous, and the flavors are delicious. The shop also has a small, very comfortable outdoor seating area. My sister got a mango smoothie and loved it. While we were devouring our shave ices, Uncle came out and treated the kids to some popcorn.

Uncle's is one of my favorite shave ice places, and I have been fortunate to try quite a few. It was the first time for my sister's family, and they are hooked.
