“Good.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

This place is good. It's worth a visit or two. Not overly sweet and heavy and the ice is shaved perfectly.

“Yummy shaved ice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

Staff were really friendly and had great flavours to choose from It was a delicious shaved ice, especially after a day of kayaking down Kailua Bay. The line was a little long but you eventually get that delicious ice down your mouth and the wait is all worth it.

“Better than a snow cone...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

Several locals encouraged we stop and try. We weren't mislead! Hand formed container of shaved ice, then ANY flavor combinations you could imagine. Then their special topping made it really good! (Can't recall what it was.) Yummmmm...

“Best Shave Ice on Oahu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

We have lived on Oahu for a year and have tried all of the major shave ice vendors on the island. Island Snow has the best syrups, softest and finest ice texture. We come to Island Snow a couple times a month. My kids put their noses up at any other shave ice. Island Snow is gourmet- the Hagan Daaz of shave ice!
