    Best shaved ice ever... it was really soft compared to all the other ones I've tried. I got the lychee, mango, and melona with condensed milk and lilikoi cream on top.

    Waiola Shave Ice is some of the BEST shaved ice I have had on vacation! They add cream and ice cream at the bottom of your shaved ice! This is a MUST have! Waiola also has amazing flavors!

    Good shave ice but I've had better on the N Shore. Includes a local candy shop. Be patient with the staff and ask for exactly what you want. Hawaii 5-0 filmed here!

    If you want more than 1 scoop of vanilla ice cream, be sure to say so. We ordered the jumbo and only one scoop was given. Requested and paid 50 cents for another schoop
