“Best Shave Ice Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

This is a must on the island. Get the macadamia nut ice cream on the bottom and sweet cream over the top. You will be eating a little piece of heaven.

“Nice outdoor atmosphere right off the beach!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

Great size, great flavor! I've had shaved ice at 2 other places this was the smoothest and largest proportioned place I've been to so far. I enjoy the sweet cream on top, so that would be my only complaint here, the cream wasn't as sweet or thick. All in all it was pretty good since Hawaiian shaved ice is my new addiction. I had the patriot coconutty, pineappley, pleasure!! If your here shopping, why not try one?

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

The service was wonderful. The portions were generous, and the flavor was amazing. I highly recommend getting a scoop of ice cream on the bottom.

“Not To Be Missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Three visits to Maui and I finally tried Hawaiian shaved iced. This ain't no stingy sno-cone! This is huge quantity, huge flavor, and huge local satisfaction. My first was a "Sunset Kiss" and I'm in love! Never will I stray and I cannot wait to return.
