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.

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...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.

Always have to stop at Hee Fat for shaved ice with mac nut ice cream!! Instead of the "standard" sugary syrup topping, they offer real fruit. Great store as well, with well priced shirts and other island products.

The shave ice here is so ONO!!! And they use homemade fruit syrups. You can add ice cream on the bottom of the "cone," but we took ours without the ice cream. Perfection! And a good price. Super customer service, too, combined with the perfect...More

We had never heard of shave ice until we went to Kauai. What a treat! They were huge and wonderful, espeically on a hot day. Mine didn't have ice cream (allergic to dairy) but was still delicious. The store is good, too--lots of interesting things.

They are open daily, have great service, lots of Hawaianna but what I really like is the real fruit syrups with the shave ice. It is the bomb! Sit on the bench curbside and enjoy.
