“shave ice without the ride”
Review of Waiola Shave Ice

Waiola Shave Ice
Ranked #63 of 108 Dessert in Honolulu
Restaurant details
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Everyone knows the best shave ice is at Matsumoto's in Haliewa in the North Shore area. But who wants to travel 2 hours each way and then wait 30 minutes because the line for shave ice is out the door and through the parking lot. Not this girl. So we head to Waiola Shave Ice because it's local and in town. It's also pretty good.

I come back here all the time for their signature Azuki bowl with Mochi. They have an original something they do to the ice where it makes it creamy. Like this very much.

Unfortunately this location will be closing soon due to redevelopment of the Ward Warehouse.

:(

Reading other reviews, people and businesses refer to sno-cones as shaved ice.

Waiola Shave Ice is good. They have a variety of flavors to choose from. There were only 2 people on staff, but they werent overly busy when we stopped by. We were early for a catamaran tour, so we walked over. If you can, J-walk instead of walking all of the way to use the crosswalks.

Good, service, decent price, and good sno-cones.

Went just before it closed and had the Lillikoi (passion fruit) as recommended from the server. It was delicious and inexpensive. I ordered a small and was surprised how big it was.

I've never had a Shave Ice that was so soft and almost creamy. Lillikoi and Haupia syrup made it the most delicious thing I have ever had. Da Best!!
