After visiting Taiwan and eating this incredible creamy/icy dessert any time we found it there, I was thrilled to discover Milkywave. It tastes exactly the same as we had in Taiwan. That is hard to find--authenticity!

The servings are delicious and gigantic! I recommend the Chico Loco. You won't even need a large to fill up: look at the cups ahead of time trust me they're huge. There are three sizes (small, large, and monster), and the monster looks like something...straight out of a food challenge. Seriously forget the strip and come here for a cheap, delicious, plentiful dessertMore

We ordered half Ex"straw"binary and half Green Tea with Azuki beans on a large cup. The green tea tasted like green tea, not like the fake flavored green tea. Its a good quality snow ice place with limited seats but not too crowded. Kids friendly...place.More

My wife was craving Shave Ice, but we ended up here instead. It was a pleasant surprise! Paper-thin layers are shaved from a solid block of all-natural ice cream, then smothered with toppings such as coconut, fruit and condensed milk! We prolly would give this...place 5 stars, but there was only one person working (help wanted sign posted) so service was slow. 3 sizes...16, 24 & 32oz. 16 oz was PLENTY!More

We originally set out to go to Sweets Raku. When we arrived there it was very small and the line was HUGE. We needed to get dessert and head home so we looked for alternatives. In the same plaza there was Milkywave. So we walked...over and it was empty. We got there just in time. It soon also filled up. We all ordered different ice cream. Milkywave uses blocks of ice cream then shaves it. It makes the ice cream melt in your mouth very quickly. It was a fun new way to eat ice cream. My favorite was the coconut. It was the best coconut ice cream I have tasted. It was sweet and creamy with strong coconut flavor. We will be back.More

We stumbled onto this dessert place in the Chinatown district of Vegas and won the jackpot ! Ordered the larger sized so we could share per the servers recommendation! For the quantity, price point and the amount we have - we definitely found a gem...in the desert! Green team mixed with black sesame were the perfect two flavor combo with the Andes mint shavings and the ever popular mochi balls! We had to have the red bean on the side since I’m not a big fan. Truly worth every dollar spent ! Price point for a larger size was definitely cheaper than other places!More

Here is why I will NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER GO HERE AGAIN! Today, 12/20/17, four of us went here to enjoy their frozen shaved Ice. We paid our bill and sat down at one of the tables to consumer our treats. Upon completion, one of...us started to caugh uncontrollably and we asked the person behind the counter for a glass of tap water. She too was observing the choking and gagging that was going on. She had the nerve to tell us that she whould not give us a glass of tap water but would only sell us a bottle of water. Of course, we paid for the water under duress and is this emergency but she had no compasion and sence of any reponsibility and made a horrible decision not to help by immediately provideing water to the suffering customer. This was her customer that was choking! It is of this reason that I will NEVER, NEVER NEVER GO HERE AGAIN! Based on this, I hope you do the same. Thank you.More

We felt like having shave ice, so we looked at Yelp and found Snowflake Shavery, and found out that it's not shave ice; it's shave ice cream! And it was really good. We each got the small size (16 oz), which is plenty big for...one person. Smooth Green Tea $4.75, which includes a red bean topping. Tasty Taro, which includes lychee jelly, also added mochi and egg pudding ($5.75), Tropical Mango, which includes pineapple, also added mochi $5.25. All the flavors were really good. We really liked the added mochi topping!More

Typically you go for shaved ice when it's hot and here we are in the desert with temps hovering at 110 degrees. This place is great for Taiwan style shaved ice flavours with Fixins. Another good reason to go here is because Sweets Raku (one...of the Best Dessert places in Vegas) is in the same mall and if the Queue is too long, we end up here anyways. Pricing between $5-12 and portions are generous. We like the Milk with Mochi, Strawberry and Condensed Sweet Milk. Good luck and enjoy!More
