    If you like it extra sweet and creamy, try getting a dollop of sweetened condensed milk on the top. Great shaved ice!

    So not worth it. Consistency close to sno-cone, weak flavor, long wait. This is not the shave ice experience you're looking for.

    My raspberry, lemonade, and green tea with ice cream and condensed milk was more delicious than I was prepared for.

    Long damn line but really good when you finally get to it. The large is really large. Make sure you get the shaved ice w ice cream. Great when you finally get down to it.

    The green tea, lilikoi, and guava flavors were all good. Add condensed milk and red beans! The line was super long but it moves by quick.

    Worth the line as they are masters of the shave ice treat.

    The most famous shaved ice spot on the north shore. Line moves fairly quickly, tons of flavors to choose from. Loved the tropical combo with guava, papaya and lilikoi.

    Meg Farmer · October 7, 2014
  • Terence C.

    Since Aoki is closed, I got large Hawaiian w/condensed milk and ice cream. Like a previous tip, save .30 and get it in a bowl and prepare to poop a rainbow of artificial coloring.

    Terence Chan · October 1, 2014
  • Janine H.

    Came to the North Shore last year and didn't have shave ice, so I was determined this year. What a waste of calories! I feel like this should be called Diabetes Ice. Give me regular ice cream any day.

    Tropical shaved ice

    For those who don't know, shave ice is a much finer shave than the traditional sno-cone you get in the mainland. Recommend it served over ice cream. Vanilla mixes well with a lot of flavors!

    Michael Tchou · August 28, 2014
  • Monica C.

    This is a must if you're visiting the North shore. Be sure to get your shave ice with vanilla ice cream in the middle. Large selection of cool souvenir t-shirts.

    The shaved ice with cream is great

    Definitely get the ice cream and beans. ABSOLUTELY get condensed milk on the top! I cannot stress this enough.

    Juvy Lucina · March 29, 2014
  • Rechenna L.

    Definitely invest in the plastic holder. It's 0.30 cents, but it's worth it. It does get messy and if you get a combination, you can even use the holder to mix it around :)

    Best shaved ice in Oahu..

    The t shirts are sweet, but None of my shave ice was. I mostly tasted food coloring

    Erica Britton · December 14, 2013
  • Deborah P.

    A little overrated, we had better at shaved ice trucks nearby.

    Deborah Perez · December 13, 2013

    Tropical!!!! With ice cream

  • Darcy G.

    The holder is a must! No way to eat it without the holder (unless you want half to hit the ground and your hands to be sticky!). Also, prices are really reasonable :-)

    Darcy Gassel · October 26, 2013

    If you have no idea how a shave ice would taste like, you'd think this place is fantastic. I had a better one in Lihaina, Maui. Matsumoto is all just sugar and ice. Can't taste the flavor! Overrated.

    E A · September 16, 2013
  • Angelo C.

    Get the cup holder when ordering... Worth the 30 cents. Anything that leaks over the edge gets caught in the cup holder. And you get to eat at the end lol

    Angelo C · September 7, 2013
  • Makamae K.

    If it's your first time, go all out and get the ice cream and condensed milk! Yuuuum!
