As soon as you open the door, you begin to experience the true meaning of ALOHA. From being greeted upon entering the shop to watching your order being made- all from the heart. Uncle Clay's Shave ice is not your typical Shave ice. The syrups are homemade and uses all natural ingredients. In all honesty, when I first tried it,... More

The shave ice is delicious and refreshing, but in an understated and almost elegant way. The syrups and ice cream are apparently all made with natural ingredients, no corn syrup, etc., which is clearly evident in how it tastes. My only (minor) gripe, and reason for the one-star deduction is that a "mini" at $5.00+ is fairly pricey (although not... More

Uncle Clay's House of Pure Aloha is a delicious find. Their fresh fruit syrups are amazing and the ice is so fine.

My son and his friends went to purchase shave ice after club basketball practice. I didn't go into the facility, waited outside. From what I saw, this didn't appear to be a place that sold meals, just snacks.

The shave ice was on point. We added the "dream" sauce which was really good...similar to condensed milk.

We were on our way back from sight seeing with our friends who have never had shave ice and of course they had to try it! It was interesting how they sandwiched the ice cream with the shave ice. We had never had it this way and it was very tasty. I was disappointed they did not have macadamia nut... More

Clean friendly service. Shave ice was good. Nice place to cool off after a day body surfing at Sandy beah or snorkeling at Hanauma Bay.

I know Matsumoto is famous but Uncle Clay is my favorite on the island. They use real fruits in their syrup and it showed in the taste. Nothing better after a long hike than icy fruity goodness. Their ice cream is top notch also

Fresh, delicious, and worth the price! You will feel their aloha with their service and products. There is a reason everyone loves Uncke Clays. Kiddies will always want to come back too!

I'm not sure why this place is the number one rated but it did lead me out to one side of the island I wouldn't have otherwise seen. Parking is easy enough, and the store is really easy to navigate. It would be nice if they had more fresh fruits or if they made fruit purees instead of syrup. It... More
