I'll admit that the shave ice at Aoki's is a little softer than at some other places, where it's like ice chips ... but it wasn't the best we had on the island. The best was at Your Kitchen in Honolulu - a hole-in-the-wall restaurant off the beaten track! Your Kitchen's was powdery soft, and their syrups are homemade! Anyway, back to my review. My husband and I each got 3 flavours but felt like they were all so processed that none of them actually tasted like anything. As I was eating I couldn't even remember what my flavours were! The only good part was the ice cream at the bottom, which was pretty good. When mixed with our syrup dregs it was kind of like a float.

Best we had on our trip and we had shaved ice at least once a day. One person infront of us both times we went. Better then the one down the way, that took 20 minutes to get. Good Memories.

Aoki's had wonderful shaved ice. The varieties of flavors was hard to choose from! The portions were generous and the cost were reasonable.

The best shaved ice on the island. Somehow the shaved ice at Aoki's is lighter and more fluffy than other spots on the island. Sadly it closing in March as the building is being torn down. The good news is they are trying to relocate near by.

There was no line when we came to visit, but there should have been since this was the BEST shaved ice we found during our 4 weeks visiting the islands of Hawaii! They give a huge portion with lots of fresh fruit syrup. The plastic holder will prevent losing the mound of deliciousness. The ice cream at the bottom adds to the delightful concoction.
