You must try a Hawaiian shaved ice! They are wonderful. They start out with ice cream in the bowl, topped with macadamia nuts and then shaved ice on top of that with your favorite flavors. Out of this world. Try it, you will love it!!!!

The flavors were very good but the texture was different than other shaved ice that I’ve had. The texture was more like beaded ice than the ice cream style than I’ve had at other places. It was clean and the people were friendly but it...More

Their shaved ices are a must try. The ones with the macadamia nut icecreams was the best. We tried different fruit flavours . They were all good.

The lightness of this shaved ice is incredible! It’s like fresh snow. Highly recommended as a great stop in Hanalei.

I took my family there to get shaved ice after dinner. I knew they closed at 7:00 pm but it was 6:55 pm. When I walked up the male server was talking about shutting down to his female counterpart. I said “We’ve got 5 minutes”...More

We actually went to the Waimea location (but can't find that here). We had never had shave ice before so we were surprised (in a good way) by the macadamia ice cream at the bottom. The servings are huge. My husband and I shared the...More
