Overall a good shave-ice spot. A bit crowded, but there are tons of options for flavors and toppings. If you're in the area, definitely recommend going. We went twice in one week, and the quality of the shave ice was different between the two visits--one...More

Really good and cheap shave ice, choice of either ice cream or sugar soaked beans in the bottom of the bowl. You also can have condensed milk poured over it. Barely any difference I. Price between small and large, so just go BIG and don’t...More

Yes. There could possibly be products in the gift shop with peanuts. Shave ice is eaten outside so there shouldn't be any close contact with anyone who could have peanuts on them. Shave ice is just syrup and ice in a bowl.
