We had visited Oahu several times but hadn't made our way to Matsumoto's before. We didn't know what we were missing! There was a band playing, which made the long wait more enjoyable. Also plenty of shops around if you have someone to hold your...More

this place is no secret, and it is still worth waiting in line for the treat. We stood in line for about 20 minutes, but for this shaved ice - I would have waited longer. It is in the heart of the Haleiwa shopping so...More

I was sceptical to stand in line for 20 minutes or some water ice with artificial flavour BUT it was worth every minute and I want to go there again tomorrow. It's just so good.

Great shave ice with many different variety of flavors to choose from. The line is super long but that's just how it is since it's a well known shave ice stop in North Shore area. If you are not in a hurry then give it...More
