We’ve had a lot of shave ice in a lot of places, but this is the only place we’ve been able to try shave snow. It’s the same idea as shave ice, but they shave ice cream! It is amazing!

We tried several shave ice places during our visit and we licked this one the best. Pina -colada with cream was the best. No in store seating but there is some around the corner.

$7 for a small with ice cream on the bottom - crazy! It was just alright. I’ve had better on the mainland. Also - a bit odd; their tigers blood is strawberry & watermelon vs traditional strawberry & coconut.

Go for the large and split it with a friend. The small is only $1 less, which is a bit of a ripoff. It was a good shave ice with the macadamia nut ice cream on the bottom and the cream on top. We got...More

Only one person working made this a long wait for a mediocre Ice. Still though, being on vacation, I tend to not care as much about little things. Still ok tho...

Wonderful ice,,,nice staff, but over priced. It's Kauai so everything is overpriced.. They also do some neat desert things..

Smaller portion size than other establishments in Kauai. Flavor was ok. Seemed just like a snow cone to me.

I haven’t had a bad Hawaiian shaved or shave Ice from anyplace yet. It all beats the boring icy or snow cones we get at home. After a burgers at near by Bubba’s we couldn’t resist the temptation to enjoy yet another Hawaiian delicacy’s like...More

The shave ice here is okay. The flavoring tastes like snowcone flavoring. I prefer the shave ice at Koloa Mill Ice Cream.

Definitely check out Kauai Backcountry Adventures for zipline and tubing! Also, we liked the Safari Helicopter Tour. Brennecke's is a good restaurant and Duke's Canoe Club is fun and tasty. Steel grass Farm Chocolate Tour... More
