We make a point of visiting HOPA each time we are in Hawaii. This is shave ice like you never had it before.

“Do not leave Oahu with visiting Uncle Clay's!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

Shave ice was one of the great delights of Oahu and Uncle Clay's does not disappoint. The syrups are REAL, not the fake stuff that everyone else has. I had the strawberry and guava. It was amazing!!! You will want to be sure that you come here and taste pure aloha! Besides the delicious shave ice, you will have the true pleasure of meeting Uncle Clay himself. He is one of the most warm & kind people I have ever met. His staff is also friendly too.
So make your visit to Hawaii complete: visit Uncle Clay's House of Pure Aloha. You wont regret it!!
