Was on a mission to find the best shave ice in maui & this is it so far. This finely shaven ice is hand packed onto ice cream and drenched in your favor choices. I got mango, coconut, & passion-orange with a snow cap (sweet milk topping). So good I had to come back before I left. Don't go anywhere... More

Our 6 year old devoured the large. Disappointed that they ran out of mochi though. Will come back again!

We tried this place due to the great reviews, and like everyone said, it can't be beat. Just be sure and call it shave ice. Not snow cone, or shaved ice. If you do you will certainly look like an island newby. It just melts I your mouth, with absolutely no graininess like a snow cone. And the flavored toppings... More

Tasty shave ice - get it with ice cream and the local flavors (lilikoi, coconut, passion fruit) Good for a pit stop while walking Front St. Usually a short line but you'll need the time to figure out the flavors you want.

If you're going to have shaved ice just once go here. It's better than the typical shaved ice. Their ice is finer so it's a softer consistency. They also have free refills on the real fruit juices so it tastes more authentic. I tried another place and while it was fine it definitely didn't compare to Ululani's. The service was... More

My adult daughter has been asking us to take her here. She ordered macadamia nut and pineapple one with some delicious, creamy ice cream at the bottom. She finished it in no time. She loved it, but $6 for shaved ice?! I dont know....

Shave ice is a quintessential Hawaiian treat and Ululani's does it great. The ice is perfect and pillowy soft and the flavoring is flavorful without being overly sweet or cloying. Who would ever think that an ice treat is so great? Me!

Description
All Shave Ice is Not Created Equal... We specialize in and are passionate about serving the BEST shave ice! Now open for 5 years, we have rapidly become recognized as the top shave ice shop in Maui and one of the top 3 shave ice shops in ALL of Hawaii! We are known for the softest ice (comparable to Waiola's on Oahu), the best tasting flavors (we make 100% of our flavors using premium fruit purees, fresh fruits (when available), extracts, and concentrates from Hawaii and all across the United States), and warm friendly service with true ALOHA spirit! We specialize in our tropical fruit flavors. Our mango, coconut, pineapple, lilikoi (passion fruit), and guava taste like biting into the fresh fruit itself. From the filtered water to the premium gourmet Roselani's Ice Cream to the homemade mochi and azuki add-ons, we have thought through every detail of the shave ice to provide the BEST tasting shave ice possible! Get rid of any preconceived notions of what a shave ice or snow cone is like.....this takes shave ice beyond the highest level imaginable!
