Description: 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!

“best shaved ice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2012

We had a list of shaved ice's to try on Oahu (matsumoto's) and Ululina's. I have to say Ululina's wins hands down. The flavours were more homemade not just syrup processed juice. The macadamian icecream at the bottom really made this top notch.
IT was quite the technique to watch them making one and poking holes to allow the flavours to get in..

We had their flavour of the day rainbow.(pina colada. lime and strawberry)

Two children shared a small and mom got into it and we still did not finish it.
I too would agree the staff behind counter need to be friendlier .
This was our last treat of the day before heading to the airport and finishing it off with a shaved ice couldnt be better!

“As good as anywhere else in Lahaina”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2012

Don't make a trip here just for the shave ice...we walked past a number of shave ice places on our way when we should have just stopped anywhere. It was good, don't get me wrong, but there's little that makes it stand out from the other shave ice places...except the 5 star trip advisor rating.

“Best Shave Ice EVER!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2012

We tried a few different places while on vacation, and this was definitely the best. The ice is co finely shaved it is smooth and not gritty at all. The staff is very friendly and the flavors are wonderful. It is in a nice shaded area and you can sit and enjoy, or take it to go. A must have!
