There hours are a little strange. 1pm -9pm. They do have ice cream not just shaved ice. I like the Maui Wowi the best. Toasted Marshmallows isn't that bad either. The staff is friendly and eager to assist. Most people know what they want when they come in. They seem to get repeat business.

Tip: get ice cream on the bottom instead of the condensed milk. AMAZING combination of ice cream and Hawaiian shaved ice. I love this place! It can get pretty busy because so many people love this place too, so going at an off-time is helpful.

Good Hawaiian style shaved ice in South Bay. There is sometimes a long line, popular place for young people to get loaded with sugar.

We had our mothers day desert here. It was wonderful. I got a scoop of taro ice cream as well. Ono. I like this better than yogurtland.

If you've been to Hawaii, undoubtedly you went to Matsumoto's for a shaved ice. This store is closer than Matusmoto's and serves a larger variety of shaved ice combinations. It is a great place to get a cool treat when the heat is on. The staff is efficient and cheerful. Overall it is a wonderful taste of Hawaii without having... More

Its usually crowded, but service is really quick. There's not a lot of places to sit. So, tailgate is good under the tree. My daughter had melon with coconut ice cream. Very good. Remember to eat slow. Brain freeze.

Offered good flavor selection on very fine shaved ice (no icy chunks either). There was something for everybody.

Overall good shave ice for the mainland. Lillikoi is not accurate, similar to the outer islands of Hawaii - more an orange color without lillikoi flavor. Ice pretty fine. Good on a hot day. Sticky floors and tables.

This is the best shave ice I've had in Southern California. They have all the toppings and add ins: condensed milk, azuki beans, ice cream, etc. They also have ice cream and other goodies for people who don't like shave ice. The flavors are a bit sweet. But it's still great.

Whenever we visit southern Cal my kids want to get shaved ice at Get Shaved. This time we noticed they've remodeled the interior, making more room for the line and more tables. I'm not a fan of anything too sweet so I usually get a small UFO size and ask for sugar free syrup. They always give you such a... More
