A special stop to regenerate your spirit and energy with a great and healthier snack. My husband stops in once a week for his snack and chat with Uncle Clay...brings all our visitors to... More

Uncle Clay's homemade syrup along with the fluffy ice make this hands down the best shave ice on the island. What's more, you may just get a special hug from Uncle Clay himself.

Before our trip, I did some research on shave ice places without artificial syrups and read about Uncle Clay's. It was the number one place on my list to try out. I wanted my kids to experience shave ice, but I didn't want them overloaded with artificial food coloring and ingredients. Uncle Clay's shave ice hit the spot on hot... More

Shaved ice is a staple refreshing snack, that is often poor due to fake flavoring even though fresh real fruit flavors are available. At Uncle Clays, only the best is used. I recommend getting one of the bowls with multiple ingredients like condensed milk, flavored jelly for a different texture, and local flavors such as lihing. After eating the lihing... More

We had to stop at Uncle Clay's House of Pure Aloha as we drove to the airport to catch our flight home because it's so unique and yummy! It's a little tucked away treasure where you will leave happy with your craving for cool and sweet satisfied- we had strawberry and pina colada both over homemade custard- delicious! Your heart...

Had the #1 and it was good. The strawberry was a bit sweet for me, when I go back i think I would just do the pineapple flavor as that was the perfect blend of sweet and sour. The vanilla ice cream had a slightly different consistency than your normal ice-cream almost thicker and almost tacky, and it was scrumptious.... More

All natural and pure ingredients and you can taste it! There are several flavor choices and toppings to choose from. If Uncle Clay is there, he is the more wonderful sweetest old man! I believe it's completely family run and they are very nice there. Whenever I am on that side , I always stop at Uncle Clay's!

Uncle Clay's Shave Ice is the best in Hawaii Kai area, the very first time I visited with my family he welcomed us with such a pure Aloha. The shave ice is amazing, you can pick out of this natural and many times local and organic flavors. No fake no artificial. We visit Uncle Clay's every Sunday after the beach,... More

The shave ice is really good, but they don't have a huge selection of flavors. That said, they are all made in house, and they are YUMMY!!, They do have fruit, and other additives that most places don't have!! It's just a personal taste. The flavors they do have are all the favorite typical Hawaiian ones. Authentic! Uncle Clay has... More
