We had their signature mango shaved ice. The ice is really awesome, it will melt in your mouth immediately without feeling the existence of the ice at all. Amazing! It is sooo fine that you would feel very cold eating it. Serving is generous. You...More

There’s no English menu. You can point to the pictures. The tables were not the cleanest. It’s very cheap but the ice is ok. I have tasted better.

Though the shaved ice was highly raved, we felt that it was average. Not worth a special trip but if you’re around the area it’s ok.

But seriously, it's not hard to make. I don't think you'd be missing out if you got it from somewhere else, especially if you were going for something standard like mango. Worth doing by if you're nearby.

Taiwan has been famous for its shaved ice, this old grandma shaved ice is extremely smooth and the milky taste of the ice is yummy. A must try food in Kaohsiung!

Dessert was average. Okay to try if you’re around the area but not worth it to specially make a trip down
