This place serves fantastic shave ice, with a plethora of choices in flavors. Amazing. Be sure to check the opening times when you're planning a visit (we came in at 18:15, only 15 minutes before closing, or so we found out at the time!). Now, personally, I prefer true Italian gelato over shave ice, but as far as shave ice... More

I'm not a fan of "snow cones" so I wasn't expecting to like "shaved ice". I see now I have lived a life of error. This stuff feels more like ice cream than ice. So amazing. I thought I was showing restraint by getting a small. It was way more than I could eat, despite my best efforts. Everyone should... More

This place is the best! I always get the coconut lovers with shaved coconut on top and it is wonderful! My daughter likes the chocolate. We had shaved ice a few times, but this place is hands down, the best!!!

This is hands down the best shaved ice on the Island or maybe all of Hawaii. The service was incredibly friendly during all of our several visits (we got addicted). We loved having the macadamia nut ice cream and snow cap topping!

This isn't chipped ice pieces that the flavoring runs down through and pools in the bottom, this is the real shaved ice which is light and fluffy and had to be packed in. Then they pour so much flavoring in you're sure it's going to run out and overflow. Then you take it and realize it's all just waiting for... More

It was my first experience of trying Shaved Ice and I couldn't have chosen a better place to try this. The staff were absolutely lovely and there were plenty of flavors available - its a shame that I we don't get that same experience in the UK!

Take my grandsons to Ululani's Kihei often. Nice to go back to the old Suda Store location. The staff is always happy and friendly. Oh, and the Shave Ice is the best. By midday the line is usually pretty long so it's a long wait, but worth it. Better if they could figure out a better order/pickup system, but still,... More

So, so good. Large portions and TRUE shave ice, not a snow cone. We all really enjoyed our selections, but the Tiger's Blood (cherry coconut) was a favorite flavor. Even the micro size was large enough for the adults in our group.

All Shave Ice is Not Created Equal... We specialize in and are passionate about serving the BEST shave ice! Now open for 5 years, we have rapidly become recognized as the top shave ice shop in Maui and one of the top 3 shave ice shops in ALL of Hawaii! We are known for the softest ice (comparable to Waiola's on Oahu), the best tasting flavors (we make 100% of our flavors using premium fruit purees, fresh fruits (when available), extracts, and concentrates from Hawaii and all across the United States), and warm friendly service with true ALOHA spirit! We specialize in our tropical fruit flavors. Our mango, coconut, pineapple, lilikoi (passion fruit), and guava taste like biting into the fresh fruit itself. From the filtered water to the premium gourmet Roselani's Ice Cream to the homemade mochi and azuki add-ons, we have thought through every detail of the shave ice to provide the BEST tasting shave ice possible! Get rid of any preconceived notions of what a shave ice or snow cone is like.....this takes shave ice beyond the highest level imaginable!
