Visited the place base on the reviews in tripadvisor.. Honestly didnt know what to expect. Specially as a Taiwanese American: shave ice is nothing new for me. Surprisely i really fell in love w the place. This is sctrictly a shave ice/ ice drink place. located in a small shopping center away from tourist area, seem like a place for locals. The variety of sauces and fresh topping make them stand out of competition, no matter you having mango or the dream sauce or topping fruit or mochi, they will amaze you! Be sure to say Aloha to your uncle Clay.. I think it is the best part of the store...!!
Love his attotide and



upbeat

Very good shaved ice and ice cream combination. We planned our day around Uncle Clay's reviews and were a little disappointed. I think we were expecting too much. The shaved ice, the ice cream and topping ARE good to exceptional. However, their products are similar to GOOD shaved ice restaurants.

Yes, HOPA is just as good as everyone says and Uncle Clay, your hawaiian blessing was one of the great memories of our holiday. Pure, soft, snowy aloha--don't miss it!

Went for the much raved about shave ice, left with a whole lotta genuine Hawaiian pure aloha! It was so nice meeting you, Uncle Clay! Best wishes for you and your ohana. And thanks for the intro to Hawaii 101. Aloha from Vancouver, Canada.

Oh, and for you, my fellow travellers, the shave ice here is truly that good.
