We'd had Loco Coco shave ice in the area and nothing beats that for the syrups, but Loco Coco closes at 5 pm. We tried Uncles and were disappointed. My kids tried the shave milk - frozen milk instead of water - and it was more curious than enjoyable.

Ice and syrup. Nothing special. For real shave ice, try Fresh Shave. Rude staff and expensive for a snow cone.

Best shaved ice on the island. Fresh fruit and ice cream. Doesn't get any better. It's absolutely delicious.

We both tried the shave snow because we figured we could get shave ice all over the island. They were both pretty good for a cool treat. Reminded us a lot of the snow cream that we make on the east coast when it snows.

It's nothing to write home about. A lot of ice with so much syrup it was too sweet to eat. Kind of a waste of money.

This is a great Hawaiian experience, but it's almost like buying a butterbeer at Universal Studios: Good, but expensive and not worth it a second time.

We loved this place. A couple of us liked the snow and a couple liked the ice. Pina colada shaved snow is awesome. Blue raspberry shaved snow tasted like cotton candy. There are benches to sit on outside. Definitely better than the shaved ice at the bottom of diamond head on Oahu.

So delicious, many flavor choices, great fun! One of the best shaved ice places on the island. Sit and watch the people at the Kukui Ula Shopping Center.

My husband and I literally go here every day when we are on vacation here. We loved the macnut ice cream on the bottom of the shaved ice. There is no other way to eat it!

A great stop for some delicious shave ice. Good variety of flavors, and suggestions by the staff how to pair up the flavors in fun ways. Really refreshing on a hot Hawaiian day.
