Now, they have built up this place since the last time I traveled to Oahu - it is so clean and updated now. Almost makes you miss the old country store feel of a 100 year old establishment, BUT the shave ice is still the same! Any flavors are good, but get the the Azuki beans and ice cream -... More

All I remember was that I was not impressed with their shave ice during my visit years ago. Wow....the finer ice quality and the flavor options now are very impressive plus you're in a remodeled shopping area.

Rated as one of the top 10 must eats. Shaved Ice? Frozen water with colorful sugar water. I have a sweet tooth but still surprised at how popular Shave Ice is. Until I tried it. I wish I had a pic of my face as I immediately became a little greedy as to my half I was sharing with my... More

I'm from Canada and when I hear shaved ice I think sno-cone but this is so much more. This is clearly the favourite shaved ice location in Hawaii. The line went out the door and prices were very reasonable. I didn't expect to have the option of ice cream with it. We got a few large shaved ice as well... More

Highly recommend stopping by. Super good with the condensed milk. The flavors were excellent and we didn't have to wait too long.

Best shaved ice I've ever had!! Even though we queued about 30 minutes for it we had been recommended it by lots of friends and was worth it!

Although there's almost always a line, the wait is well worth it. Serving up delicious Hawaiian shave ice in fanciful colors and exotic flavors Matsumoto's has it down. There are so many flavors and options to choose from but our favorite is shave ice with ice cream in the center. We sat down at one of the outdoor tables and... More

We spent the day exploring the North Shore and had Matsumoto Shave Ice as an afternoon snack. Super super cheap, 38 different flavours and a tasty treat. Recommended if you're around the area.

We stumbled upon Matsumoto's as we were driving around Oahu. Since it was a hot day, shave ice sounded like a great way to cool off. NOTE - the large size is really large!! I had the large Hawaiian combo (pineapple, coconut and banana) - but there are tons of flavors and combos to choose from. This is a definite... More

This visit was a blast. Long line ups but so worth it. Lots of flavours and great taste. I had never had this delightful treat and was very impressed with it. Good unique souvenirs. I love my mug!
