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,...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!!

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!

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...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.
