We had heard all about the shaved ice craze and were eager to try it. We stopped by Shave Ice Paradise and were woefully disappointed. The flavors were terribly sweet and artificial tasting . A place to be avoided.

Best Shave Ice on the Island! Our family heads here several times every trip. Get it w/ the mac nut ice cream mixed in.

You can't swing a dead rooster in Kauai without hitting a shave ice place, but this one seemed better than most. It's still ice and flavored syrup, but the staff were nice and friendly.
