I didn't know what Shave ice was but boy! Was it a discovery! Sooooo amazing. Specially the passion fruit. It's like the real thing. Amazing! and it was only a 5 minutes walk from our super condo at Kihei Sands. So convinient!

“Nice shave ice, friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2014 NEW

Enjoyed the shave ice but wasn't the best I had while in Hawaii - can't really see what all the fuss is about with this place. the guy who served me was lovely though and really friendly, explaining what some of the flavours were and just being generally helpful.

“The best (and only authentic) place to cool off in the Hawaiian Sun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2014 NEW

What's more else to say: Ululani's Shave Ice is the best, the BEST shaved ice you'll ever have on the island of Maui. The way they have prepared the island-classic treat, doesn't result in a 'chunky' texture, but more of a finer quality alike to ice cream.

The variety of flavours/combinations you can apply, even left me struggling to choose! Not only that, but a choice to add a scoop of ice cream (Coconut Pudding, Vanilla, or Mac Nut), azuki red beans, mochi balls, or even a 'snow-cap' (condensed milk mixture), at inexpensive prices (cheapest can come to around $4-5), can leave many struggling to decide! I highly recommend the 'island favourites', especially Passion-Orange, Guava, or Leche etc. Li Hing Mui powder, is a free add-on, while the others mentioned do cost extra cents.

Note though, that there are two locations within Lahaina, one located between the art galleries across from 'Cheeseburger in Paradise', the other adjoining to several scuba shops further down Main Street. And if you aren't in Lahaina, Ululani's do have other branches along Dairy Road, Kahului, and within Kihei Town.

Whatever time or place you enjoy a shave ice from Ululani's, it is guaranteed to put a smile on your face, and truly appreciate the Rainbow State's method of 'cooling off' from the sun.

“Best Shaved Ice Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2014 NEW

I had to make a stop to get shaved ice. I was surprised there was no line..Great for me... I ordered the island flavors and enjoyed every bite. If you are on front street stop and get your shaved ice it is one of a kind!

“There is a reason for being #1...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2014 NEW

This is the best shave ice I have ever had. The gentleman serving was also incredibly friendly. The syrups are made there on site and have actual fruit in them. I have had many, many shave ices, and this is the best. The ice is shaved so good it is almost creamy. I really like that the customer can ask for extra or light syrup. I always get men with light syrup and it is so refreshing. Will definitely come back here.
