This was not the best shave ice I've had, but it was pretty good. Lots of mochi when you get it as an "under".

My husband was reluctant to try shaved ice but I am a foodie and knew I had to give it a shot. So glad we did, it was delicious, refreshing and fresh. We have a pina colada shaved ice which is a scoop of vanilla ice cream topped with pineapple and coconut flavored shaved ice. Perfect for after the hike... More

The birthday cake flavor is very good. Our family loves shaved Ice and we went to Uncles every day at least once.

This place is okay/decent, but not nearly as good as Wailua Shave Ice, but cheaper. I wish they would have more chocolatey flavors instead of all fruity ones. Conveniently located in a shopping center.

I loved their shaved ice. Not a fan of the macadamia ice cream under the shave ice though. Ice was light and not clumpy.

As shave ice goes, the shave ice at Poipu state beach and at the Hyatt was much better then this. Ice cream was packed and frozen in bottom of cup, not fresh scooped. only choice was vanilla

We just had to try the shave ice while in Hawaii! Yummy and colourful snow ice. We had Pina Colada and Li Ming Hui flavours. Worth the brain freeze!

Each island has it own unique take of shave ice. Kauai is no different. Reasonable price for a great treat
