“Fantastical”
Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

The employees are hip, the shaved ice, and ice cream are yummy, great value for large shaved ice! Also, they have a loyalty card for free. Check this place out, and you'll go back several times, I guarantee! My kids loved it, and mom and dad did too.

“Shave Ice”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

I really liked friendly and very skillfull staff (it was rather amusing watching the prepare the shave ice cone). A lot of flavours are offered, same of them diet. The size of the cone is generally bigger, than in other shave ice shops. The price was very reasonable.

I presume this is a must, when in Kailua Kona.

“Very average.”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

Shave ice was fine. Nothing special. Very good value though. Wait staff was nice enough but not very informed. I asked about some flavors and he said he hadn't tried them. Okay if you are in the area.

Kids loved them! You can even get ice cream in the middle! Keikei (kid) size was $3 without the ice cream. Cool to watch them make it! It was an Art!
