This is really the ONLY place to go for shave ice. The real fruit in some (not all) of the syrups make the difference. If you want to get real fruit flavors, stick with fruits available locally- specifically mango, coconut, passion fruit and a few others- look for the syrup to look "chunky' as they pour it. And the haupia... More

We've had a lot of shave ice here in Hawaii (throughout different islands as well) and we agree that Ululani's is one of our top 3 favorite shave ice places. Super delicious! The "shave" of the ice is perfect and the flavors are made of pure sugar cane. A must try if looking for a way to cool off.

There can be wait, but it is well worth it. One of the few places that have sugar-free syrups. Their ice is the best consistency ever and easy to eat without getting "brain freeze". My wife just loves this place and I have to agree.

Best Shave Ice experience ever. Long queue but quick service! Took the ice across the road to the beach. Mahalo.

We didn't experience long lines at this location (vs. the Lahaina location), and even if we had, it would have been worth it. Excellent flavors, plenty of parking, and friendly staff. Portions are incredibly generous ("micro" was anything but small!). If you like shave ice, and you are visiting Maui, I would highly recommend stopping by if possible.

We love this shave ice although the lines get looooong. Sometimes we head to Kahalui location where the lines tend to be shorter. It is great with the Haupia ice cream. Yum!!!

It was well packed, not too sweet, didn't melt before you were done and SO REFRESHING. It's not a snow cone. It's shaved ice which has a much nicer texture and really let's the flavor absorb into the ice.

All Shave Ice is Not Created Equal... We specialize in and are passionate about serving the BEST shave ice! Now open for 5 years, we have rapidly become recognized as the top shave ice shop in Maui and one of the top 3 shave ice shops in ALL of Hawaii! We are known for the softest ice (comparable to Waiola's on Oahu), the best tasting flavors (we make 100% of our flavors using premium fruit purees, fresh fruits (when available), extracts, and concentrates from Hawaii and all across the United States), and warm friendly service with true ALOHA spirit! We specialize in our tropical fruit flavors. Our mango, coconut, pineapple, lilikoi (passion fruit), and guava taste like biting into the fresh fruit itself. From the filtered water to the premium gourmet Roselani's Ice Cream to the homemade mochi and azuki add-ons, we have thought through every detail of the shave ice to provide the BEST tasting shave ice possible! Get rid of any preconceived notions of what a shave ice or snow cone is like.....this takes shave ice beyond the highest level imaginable!
