I like the consistency of the shave ice at Waiolas better. The ice doesn't seem as finely shaved here. The thing that sets Uncle Clays apart are their syrups. All of the syrups seem to have a really fresh fruity flavor to them.
The shave ice is good, but not the best on the island. What was BEST was that Uncle Clay himself was there and lavished us with pure aloha. It's well worth going by for the memorable experience of being totally loved, just for being human.
