We had shave ice in a number of different places in Maui but this was the best. Authentic flavours for the syrup and a wide variety of choices. They're more expensive than some of the shops but they are true shave ice, not crushed ice...More

Shave ice is delicious. Service is slow. The coconut milk ice cream was a special treat... they have several flavors with no artificial colors or flavors.

This is literally the best shave ice you can find in Kihei. It has the best flavours and softest ice (and also a very friendly staff member). I went to a few places that disappointed me...but luckily stumbled upon this shave ice gem beside foodland...More
