Heard this was one of the best places on the island to get shaved ice. We saw others eating it before we got there so knew it would be huge! It certainly was, but delicious. If there are 2 people, you can share one. We...More

Hee Fat had the best shaved ice that we've ever tasted. We were told it's because they are the only one on the island that uses real fruit from local farmers instead of the bottled flavors that other shaved ice shops use. I'm craving it...More

Were just browsing through Kapaa and found this place for lunch. They had great wraps and sandwiches for a reasonable price. Good service and open air ambiance.

A great little gift/souvenir shop with friendly people and the bonus of great shave ice! Some of their shave ice offerings include real fruit juices if you prefer. Lots of shopping in the area and right on the Kuhio Hwy.

The shave ice was excellent, especially with the natural fruit flavors. We got the mac nut ice cream, which was tasty and full of mac nuts. The portions are huge for the price paid. There's also some decent shopping in the same larger store.

Shave Ice is a simple Hawaiian dessert. Put ice shavings in a dish and pour flavor syrup over the top. How can one be better than another? Its all in the syrups. At Hee Fat they have fresh takes on popular flavors and interesting flavors...More

They are open daily, have great service, lots of Hawaianna but what I really like is the real fruit syrups with the shave ice. It is the bomb! Sit on the bench curbside and enjoy.
