Ululani's Hawaiian Shave Ice
Ranked #1 of 20 Dessert in Kihei
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$4 - US$9
Cuisines: Hawaiian
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!

“Delicious!”
Reviewed 28 August 2014 via mobile

I've had shaved ice back in the Midwest where I'm from and it doesn't even compare to this great stuff! The texture is so smooth only a little chunky towards the bottom. They offer ice cream on the bottom and I had Mac nut, delicious! I had a micro size and that was plenty. I'm sure we'll be back before we leave again to go home. I had strawberry, cherry, pineapple, very good!

“Definitely best shaved ice on Maui!”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

Friendly staff who take time to explain how the "system" of ordering your shaved ice works (it can get complicated with all the different options available). Since it's a popular joint, you might need to wait in line a while, but it's well worth the tasty/refreshing treat you get at the end! We always got the "micro" size shaved ice since the small size was huge in itself! Best time to come: just around sunset... we always took a nice walk along the beach and up to Ululani's for a refreshing treat at the end of a busy/hot day.

“Holy smokes that's tasty ”
Reviewed 25 August 2014 via mobile

I do not fruit flavored desserts as a general rule. I loved the coconut, mango, passion fruit shave with hazelnut ice cream and toasted coconut. It was perfect. It is not possible to make a better combination so don't try, and if you don't like it there must be something wrong with you.

“Perfect shopping break”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

We've tried a number of shaved ice joints this week while vacationing here in Maui. This one was our favourite! Soft shaved ice...no lumps, delicious ice cream and flavour refills! Coconut with Leche and Macnut ice cream were my fave.

“OMD, so good!”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

I didn't even know what this was before. What a treat. Tastes real, not like chemicals. There's lots of choices. Staff is pleasant too. Enjoyed it twice, once in Kihei and once in Lahaina during our Feb Hawaiian vacation. Thanks.! (Not a meal, but a cold refreshing dessert)
