I was referred to Matsumoto by a former resident of Oahu. The shaved ice was like snow, it was so fine. We tried one with ice cream and one with the sweetened condensed milk snow cap. Both were outstanding.

Add concentrated cordial flavours to shaved ice and your there. Can imagine this being really refreshing on a really hot day having been surfing or swimming all morning. The choices of toppings are extensive but we only had a few. Ice cream on the bottom...More

If you like shaved ice then you'll probably really enjoy this establishment. We got ours straight up (no ice cream) and no snow cap (no sweet cream on top). They do about the smoothest ice in Hawaii. Many flavors to choose from.

Nice refresher after spending the entire day at the beach waiting for turtles. The area was renovated and now situated in a small plaza with parking area and restroom on site.

Be prepared when you get there because they have almost 50 different flavors to pick from! I suggest you stick with your favourite unless you're adventurous and wanna try something different. You can pick up to 3 flavors on your one scoop of shaved ice....More

Yes. There could possibly be products in the gift shop with peanuts. Shave ice is eaten outside so there shouldn't be any close contact with anyone who could have peanuts on them. Shave ice is just syrup and ice in a bowl.
