Description: 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!

“BEST shave ice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014 via mobile

You MUST stop here when in Maui. Hands down the best shave ice on the island. My favorite flavor combo is sunset beach. Adding vanilla ice cream and a snow cap is recommended.

“By Far...the Best Shave Ice in Maui”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2014

It was a hot afternoon in Kahului and I was dying to have something to cool off. I was sitting at Starbucks on Dairy Rd. and I spotted Ululani's Shave Ice. All of the outdoor tables were taken and people were enjoying their shave ice with huge smiles! I ran over and ordered my own version of shave ice with coconut, pineapple and strawberry. The texture of the shave ice was so fine it tasted like ice cream without the calories. It was simply the best shave ice ever! The flavors were naturally pure and delicious! I finished it before I returned to Starbucks. The two young local ladies were very helpful, attractive and friendly. A+ for service!

“The best Shave Ice in Maui”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2014

This was my first taste of Shave Ice and will judge all others by this standard! I have had several others since and nothing matches this. The long lines are just one indication of how great this is. Make sure you get ice cream in the bottom, it is a hidden treat at the end! A must experience in Hawaii.

“A must do”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2014

For those who don't know it, Hawaiian Shaved Ice is nothing like the shaved ice from the mainland! This place is a must for all first time visitors! It is especially good with cream drizzled over it or ice cream on the bottom.
