“Best ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

Best Hawaiian shaved ice ever! Not only was it totally delicious but the staff could not have been any friendlier! They were so much fun watching! The lines are long but worth the wait! A Maui tradition and must-do!

“A MUST for any trip to Maui!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

This was our first shaved ice ever and we chose this place because of it's rating. We were NOT disappointed!! The service was friendly and interactive.
And the shaved ice was AWESOME. There are endless possible flavor combinations and they have some suggested favorites. Get it with the ice cream in the bottom and with your favorite flavorings on top. You will LOVE IT!!
Highly recommended, it was one of the highlights of our Maui visit.

“Shave Ice - A great Hawaiian Treat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

We had heard that Ululani offered the best shave ice on Maui, and we liked it so much that we went back (twice!) to get more. I'm partial to the Tiger's Blood flavor, in combination with other flavors like passion fruit and pineapple. On one occasion, I had the optional macadamia nut ice cream under the shave ice. Always delicious! The only negative are the lines, but the staff did what they could to keep people moving. We were lucky to find seating at two of the three locations... I think this would be messy to eat while walking and I can't imagine that the storekeepers in adjacent properties would want people eating in their stores. It would be helpful to have wet naps with you as you can get sticky.

“Wow! Didn't know ice can do that!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Had the Haleakala which was coconut & leche mixed with condensed milk and cream mix. Could not wrap my head around how this ice with artificial flavoring could be that good. Not only that but the guys behind the counter took their time and made the making of my dessert an art form of perfection.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

We were on a stop off from our cruise ship in Lahaina. It was very hot and we were looking for some liquid refreshment and just happened to stumble on Ululani's. We'd been told about shave ice and decided to try it. We weren't disappointed. Apart from a little "brain freeze" it was amazing. Would highly recommend.
