Frost City is not to be missed! This is hands down the best frozen treat you can put in your mouth! The flavors, texture and choices are beyond flavorful! The only downside is finding parking in the tiny lot.

I visited Honolulu in the fall 2017 and will definitely go back to Frost City this fall 2018. This is not anything like Hawaiian shave ice, which is excellent. This is more like ice cream and I can't wait to try this delicious treat again...More

I was a little surprised to find the shop had changed hands. But their snow ice is still the best on the island. Friendly staffs as always!

Shaved ice get the favor and sweetness from fruit syrup and it's usually too sweet. Frost City's shaved ice cream taste like ice cream, but much lighter and fluffy. The decoration was very nice and it almost like eating a piece of art work. It's...More
