When I say the best, I can say from experience. We spent seven days in Kauai and tried several other more recognized shave ice places. Hee fats won hands-down with our group of 6 adults as the best on the lsland. Friendly service, best flavor, get it with the macadamia or vanilla ice cream inside, it was amazing! We ended... More

Hee Fat was my husband's favorite shaved ice spot. They have natural flavors and that's what won him over. Macadamia nut ice cream is a must!!

I spent 9 days in Kauai and went to Hee Fat, with my husband, on our very first day. Best decision ever! The shave ice is amazing and the real fruit syrup is to die for. We had the opportunity to come back every single day, after our hikes or day at the beach, to try a different flavor each... More

Omg! The shave ice here was amazing! Natural strip and macadamia nut ice cream is a must! The top even had some sort of cream on top. Highly recommend over the sugary syrups that come by the gallon!

Loved the Lava Flow shaved ice! The real fruit syrups really made the shaved ice as well as the macadamia nut ice cream on the bottom! We went back many times on our trip for it!

Super good shave ice. Had a lava flow, hawaiian sunrise, POG and rainbow. Loved the lava flow and the mac-nut ice cream. POG seemed too sweet though.

If I could, I would just sit there shoving shave ice from Hee Fat in my face all day long until I pass out in a shave ice induced coma. It's sooooooo good. It's honestly a must do in Kauai. If you miss it, I'm pretty sure a unicorn dies somewhere. It's freaking heaven.

Get the real fruit POG with Macadamia Nut ice cream on the bottom. It is delicious. We also bought some coconut peanut butter for some co-workers and it is very good! Great place.

So, I bake from scratch. Which means sometimes I make my own fruit purées or compotes or syrups. Like blueberry, lemon, raspberry, strawberry, etc. However... the *natural* syrups at Hee Fat General Store they use on their shave ice? I might as well use Smuckers 'fruit' syrups in my baking. I was completely floored by their syrups: deliciously fresh, perfectly... More

We'd read about the deal here and can confirm it's true. Monster sized product with ice cream in the bottom for less that 5 bucks per person. Compare that to as much as $6.50 at other places. Great store to look around in as well.
