Stopped by with a couple friends and they have a lot of options. I had this green tea smoothie drink that was pretty good. Will have to go back to try some of the other options.

This fruit flavored shaved ice is very refreshing . They also come in green tea flavor. They come with different flavored poppers, Mango and Lychee and can include fresh fruit. The shaved ice can be topped off with my recommended drizzle of condensed milk, or other toppings. You can also order it without drizzling any flavor. Your imagination is your... More

My family visited several times and we loved it every time. The shaved ice is delicious. We tried most flavors and pretty much liked them all. Our favorite is coconut with poppers. We also tries some of the specialty drinks and they were all good as long as we ask for them to be made less sweet. I would highly... More

The hill was a generous portion that I couldn't finish! The mountain is great for two people. How it works is you choose your flavor vanilla, chocolate, coconut,... More

This is a GREAT place to take visitors. Nu Ice is fluffy, delicious shaved ice milk. I've never had anything else like it. It is especially great when it's like a million degrees in Houston! By the way, there's a second location now!!

Never thought to shave ice cream and eat it that way. The portions are big and come with a drizzle of your choice and fruit. Very good place to sit down on a hot day and chill. Very good place. We need one in Austin.

We tried the NU Ice - mango flavor with fresh strawberry and lychee jelly (mountain size- large) and it was fantastic. Shaved ice was smooth,flavorful and silky and it did not have any large chunks of ice. Condensed milk was added without additional charge. Staff was helpful and friendly and the place was very clean. Perfect place to enjoy shaved... More
