This is the best shaved ice in Kauai! Order it with the real fruit flavors and you won't be disappointed. Either the macadamia nut ice cream or the vanilla ice cream is great. My recommendation is to get the mango syrup as at least one of your syrups. Make sure you get the snowcap as it adds the finishing touch.

Stopped here to try their shave ice, it was delicious with the natural flavored juice. Oh one more thing don't let her talk you into splitting one you'll just want more when it's gone.

I've had shave ice on Oahu and other spots in Maui, Kauai and the Big Island....HOWEVER...Hee Fat's is my favorite. They use REAL fruit juice and make the biggest most delicious shave ice. I recommend the Coconut, Mango and Macadamia Nut ice cream and topping....YUM!!!!

Do not leave without asking for a sample of their coconut peanut butter! It has a light aftertaste of coconut and is so smooth and delicious, I had to buy a jar! The staff was very friendly and helpful.

It was a hot day so we came to Hee Fat due to the reviews and were not disappointed. The portions are huge, so you can always get the kid size. They have many flavors and I had one of their specials that had 4 flavors and ice cream. Everything was great.

Thank RockNCreekGirl
