We were pretty boring and just had some basic flavours (chocolate, choc chip, strawberry) in a waffle cone and milkshake but both were excellent. We ate inside and in our time there everyone who came in ordered the mochi ice cream... especially the green tea variety. If we had more time on the island we would've come back to try... More

This ice cream shop has a nostalgic ice cream shop feel. The mochi ice cream was really tasty. We tried the Raspberry, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Green Tea and Sakura. All excellent flavors. Other family members had macadamia nut ice cream and Oreo ice cream. Everyone thought the quality was very good. Prices by the piece for mochi and by the... More

Just like gelatto. Both coconut and greentea flavors I chose for one cone, were fantastic. I'd like to visit again tommorrow before or after going Hanauma bay. 아이스크림중 헨리스 플레이스윽 코코넛도 맛있었지만, 여기도 맛있습니다. 주차도 쉽고 쇼핑센터라 스벅도 근처있습니당. 아이들도 넘좋아해요~^^

We enjoyed all of the flavors, including lychee and DDCCC, but I will never forget my macadamia nut. The ice cream is thick and creamy and beats anything else I had in the island.

When we placed our order for mochi, we were told half of the varieties were out and the server did not know when they would be available again. Our alternative choices from the limited selection were not the flavors we would have selected nor did the flavors and quality seem as good as on our previous visits. Maybe we should... More

Came here after visiting Hanauma Bay. Unfortunately they are out of a lot of flavors which I wanted to try. But had the green tea and pistachio mochi and thoroughly enjoyed them.

We came for the fresh mochi ice cream and were very happy. You are able to mix and match from a variety of flavors. There is seating inside and out. The service is friendly and the ice cream is delicious. There is also dipped ice-cream as well.

After hiking koko head we needed something cold and sweet. We didn't know about this place, but just happened to drive by it and decided to stop in. The place is clean and the staff was friendly. We tried the lychee and red bean and they were both good. If you are in the area, do yourself a favor and... More

Bubbies had a great shop near the University, it was small, great atmosphere, always packed, usually a line way out the door... but they closed it. Go figure. Now, the only way to get their mochi balls is to get them from the frozen food section of a bunch of retailers or drive to Hawaii Kai and get them at... More
