We stopped here on our way back from Hanauma Bay because of the reviews...WOW! So so good! The ice is perfect, the flavors taste like its actually the flavor it says (their syrups are made with real fruit)..the ice cream?? Best vanilla ice cream I've had! Great Aloha spirit too!

I originally heard about Uncle Clay's House of Pure Aloha through a Trip Advisor e-mail. We were staying in Waikiki but took a day to relax on Lanikai Beach and explore the Windward coast of O'ahu. When setting out for the day, we knew we had to check out HOPA on the way back to Waikiki!

Immediately upon entering, we were greeted by Matt. The Aloha spirit was felt immediately. Matt was awesome, taking the time to guide us through our selections and showing a genuine interest in us as people. It was great talking with him. I also observed quite a few regular customers who came through and it was like a family atmosphere.

The shave ice itself was incredible. Great flavors and it seemed made with great ingredients. I wish HOPA were closer as I'm craving it right now and need my fix!!! I will certainly return everytime I get to O'ahu.

My daughter has become hooked on shaved Ice, and this place was the best so far. Flavours where very good and the staff helpful in making a choice and allowed us to sample
