So shaved ice doesn't seem like it could be an "experience," but at Ululani's on Front street...we can definitely vouch for the experience you'll have when eating their shaved ice. The key isn't just the ice, it's the syrups. If you go here, you'll notice there isn't a single label on any of their syrup bottles...that's because all of it... More

The line was a bit slow, but only because the staff was making sure you knew how and what size to order, and making great recommendations as to flavour combinations. Rich flavours, generous portions, reasonable price, terrific staff.

Nearing the end of our trip to Maui, one of the things I will miss the most is the shave ice at Ululani's. The staff is consistantly friendly, especially with our kids, and the prices are decent for what you get. Don't forget to get a punch card. Guava, mango, and sour lemon with mac nut ice cream, a snow... More

Didn't live up to all the hype. It was good, but not great. Not enough flavoring, bottom was just ice, guy messed up my order. I was expecting better flavoring being that they make their own, but some of the flavors were a bit off tasting, but not bad.

Had shave ice on multiple occasions while visiting both maui and kauai. Had mediocre, ok, and then discovered this gem. It was the best we've had. Went with recommendations of staff. Got ice cream and snow cap. Completely delicious! Plus only place we visited that gave us a plastic device that held cup and easy for sharing. Small was more... More

I went to a shave ice spot back in Kauai, and was kind of put off by the experience. I found myself chipping away at the shave ice wishing I had an ice pick. I was hesitant to try again, since I thought that shave ice felt like biting off a corner of a glacier. I was very surprised that... More

The first time I had shaved ice in Hawaii was in Oahu and I thought that was the best thing ever! Then on Maui I had Ululani's and OMG! It's an explosion of flavours like none other. I'll start by saying that unlike other shaved ice places, it actually tastes like shaved ice or snow where as other places it... More

A friend recommend Ululani's to us. It is by far, the best Shaved Ice we have ever had. It is now on our list of places to go back to.

Yes, the shaved ice is good, but the 45 minute wait is just crazy and you are in the sun the whole time. Having kids with us wait for that long - isn't worth the wait. We stood in line with about 10 people or less in front and there was 2 guys serving - its a slow process. Heaps... More

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!
