Get the punch card on your first visit. You'll be back for more! We hit this place a minimum of 4 times (x 4 people) every time we are in Maui. Best time to go is around dinnertime. The lines can get long in the middle of the day. We can't get enough!

A snow cone from here will cool you down from a hot day at the beach. With more flavor choices that you can try in one visit to Maui, you can't pick a "wrong" flavor. The prices are reasonable-even for Hawaii-and the staff are incredibly nice as you are staring wildly at the menu of choices.

The shaved ice was a tasty treat during the beautiful warm weather. It was very neat to see how they made the shaved ice. It was an excellent value for the price. The staff was prompt and friendly. I would definitely be a repeat customer.

Lines have gotten rather long, but nobody can duplicate the taste and quality of Ululani's shaved ice. Out of convenience, I tried two other places while on the island, and both paled in comparison.

We decided to visit Ululani's after seeing the crowd and were glad we did. The shave ice was shaved fine and tasted awesome. The macadamia nut ice cream was great with the shaved ice. The waiters were very nice and helpful in finding the right flavours.

We had to try this as we saw plenty of people walking and eating them. They were fun and cooling on a Maui sultry day.

We had heard from others that this was the best place for shaved ice so we tried it. It was great! The texture is smoother than that of a snow cone and the "toppings" were all natural and made with sugar (versus high fructose corn syrup). The citrus flavors were fresh and tangy and did not get diluted by the... More

The syrups they use taste just like the fruits, and the ice is probably the finest I've ever had. I like mine with haupia ice cream at the bottom, and sometimes I let my wife share with me. We try to make a stop at an Ululani's every day while we're on Maui!

Simply the BEST on Maui and we tried a few others to confirm. We will go back one more time before departing. I would recommend getting it with a scoop of ice cream at the base of the treat!!

There are a lot of places where I really thought I had found the perfect dessert to visit over again. Not until a trip to Maui, Lahaina to be specific, did I find the most perfect of all treats. Shaved ice to put Mother Nature's own beautiful snow to shame and tropical flavors to refresh and add a zing on... 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!
