Wife loves these things so of course after dinner had to go to #1 rated place. Lucky for us it was right before closing so no wait. While she didn't complain and said it was good she followed up with don't know what all the fuss is. She has had as good in little ol South Carolina. I didn't get one but tasted hers and agreed. We can at least say we got one...next

They say that when you're in Haleiwa you have to try shaved ice, so my friends and I stood in line for about 10 minutes to try Aoki's, thinking that the line outside the shop meant the shaved ice was really good. They have tons of different flavors, but they're all made with bottled syrups, and I believe the shaved ice was not worth the wait. It was OK but nothing more, I don't know if I'll go back.

These places are starting to seem similar. Dumpy little joint, long line, somewhat reasonable price - and you get shave ice. I wouldn't drive to this place just for their shave ice, but it is set amongst other shops and restaurants so hey.

There is the other place where the lines can be very long. Sometimes there is a short line here. Very good shaved ice. Any where you go it doesn't vary much. It is ice and colored sugar water. Not worth standing in line for.

This 90 year old building houses one of North Shore Secrets (not so). This place is packed with eager eaters of Hawaii's best known treat" shaved Ice". They are the only ones that give you a huge shaved Ice bowl for under $4. You can add a scoop of ice cream on the bottom for around $2. The owner informs me as of July 31. 2013 they will close this shop while they build their new location across the street. Get one at the old location while you can before the new developer tears down this 90 yr. old landmark to make way for a new shopping center.
