The best matcha and hojicha soft serve ever. I'm glad I tried both flavours (the latter is available only for a limited period). The flavour was so intense and rich, and is the only soft serve in the world I've come across so far that...is so saturated with matcha/hojicha.More

Yummy!!! If you’re craving some dessert and love matcha, hit this place up! They have a variety of matcha desserts that can be made, I got a soft serve twist of vanilla and matcha. Delicious on a Hawaiian summer night. On my visit they only...took card or Apple Pay. Staff was very friendly and service is pretty quick. It’s located in a cute plaza with string lights and tables .More

Generally love the dole whip, but tried this place and came back 3 more times during the week! The desserts are nice for those who are more inclined to enjoy traditional asian desserts that aren't too sweet. The lines are long so this must be...a great trendy place to be right now. We'd go back again in a heartbeat!More

Not many similar dessert places in the area, so pleasantly surprised to find Matcha Cafe Maiko. Love the soft serve and drinks, but a bigger fan of the parfaits.

This was right outside our hotel, Kuhio Banyan Club, so we got green tea ice cream here twice. The service was friendly and the prices were reasonable for Hawaii. Green tea ice cream is a different taste, but good. It's a little icey in texture...and not very sweet.More

One of the best matcha flavored dessert place in Honolulu. The matcha ice cream there has strong matcha tastes. Really enjoyed it.

After a nice ramen lunch, we were looking for something to cool down with on a hot day. Matcha Stand Maiko was right across from the International Marketplace, where we parked, so we walked across the street to get some matcha soft serve. We got...the vanilla/match swirl because as much as we love matcha, we didn't want the strong taste of the all-matcha soft serve. The cashier was very friendly and our cones were quickly dispensed. Here's where I took a couple stars away. The soft serve had a grainy texture to it and I even found small pieces of something in it, maybe hardened pieces of soft serve from the bottom of the machine? I've read a few reviews on Yelp that even go back a couple of years that also mention the grainy texture so maybe that's just how it is here. I also visited the Matcha Stand Maiko location in Las Vegas and I don't remember it being grainy. Although grainy, the soft serve did have a good taste to it. I think we'll try Nana's Green Tea or Matcha Love the next time we're in the area.More

Super Matcha, very tasty almost the same as the one I had in JP. Very friendly staff and details explain. The Matcha power is super strong. I wish they have one in SF😊

This place is the number 1 place to get MATCHA ANYTHING!! The soft serve is however the most heavenly thing on the menu. They bake the waffle cones fresh and they truly don't disappoint.. The staff obviously cares about their cute little shop because they...are so friendly and always have a smile on their face. Seriously though, try the Matcha mixed with vanilla soft serve ice cream in a waffle cone... We tried it once and went back another 3 times in one week. They offer a buy one get one free if you take a little selfie for them! However I would pay their reasonable prices any day.More

We tried the matcha cup and matcha soft serve and both were delicious with a strong matcha flavor. It is right near marakuma udon so a great place to stop for deserts after you’ve had your udon. One thing to note though they do not...validate for parking at the international marketplace.More

Every time we come we have to pass by and have the Maiko mix special. If you love matcha you need to pass by. Waikiki Yokocho has one but this is better, more local. Highly suggest.

The best matcha soft-serve I've ever had! Conveniently located at the city center of Oahu. Service is also excellent though sometimes we have to queue.
