As far as shaved ice goes - this was good. Lots of variety and it was a decent value. But there wasn't anything that really put it over the top for me.

This shave ice stand is a perfect treat on a hot day! The servers are super cute and friendly. The ice flavors are plentiful, and while you work your way through your treat you have the choice of chatting with your fellow shave ice enjoyers on a bench or take it to go and walk along front street and enjoy...

Can't say enough. Great price, great selection of sizes and syrups. A lot of their syrups are home-made. Whoa, making me want go get one now!

I had never heard of this before and I loved it. It is definitely not a snow cone. The shave ice is smooth and almost creamy. They pour sugar syrup over it and it is just that...sugar! :-) Awesome! I tried another one on Waikiki and it was NOT the same. If I had had that one first, I probably... More

I went here after hearing from my Hawaiian friend that it had the best shave ice in Hawaii. I was not disappointed. I had a green tea, guava and coconut shave ice with mochi and toppings. The serving was extremely generous. If you're in Hawaii, this is a must-try. I dream about it still!

Friendly service and great Shaved ice. Have them put a scoop of ice cream in the bottom for and extra special treat. We have a favorite Shaved ice place on the Big Island or this would be rated a 5. No better place on Maui than Ululani's and we've tried many others around the island but keep coming back here... More

We were recommended to try Ululani's by one of our tour guides but we didn't enjoy it. The flavoring didn't soak all the way through the ice, so only the outside had any flavoring and the middle was just ice. The ice was not as thin and fluffy as we thought it was going to be. We loved a different... More

I love Ululani's Hawaiian Shave Ice....I like to add a scoop of ice cream. I wish there was a location at Whalers Village and/or I wish the small place on Kaanapali Beach would be open in the evenings.

My husband and I share an obsession with shave ice that borders on positively juvenile, but whatever. Shave ice, so you are entirely clear on the matter, is nothing like a sno-cone; it is an ancient Hawaiian custom to mix crazy things together in a giant, perfect ball of snow. Actually, a lot of the best toppings are Filipino or... More

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!
