There can be a wait time in the afternoon once the sun is out and it gets hot!! But no problem for me!! More time to think about what I want.They do offer your traditional shave ice, fruit flavors, syrup, the works! But personally I’d recommend some of their topping filled shave ice (it is a bit pricey, and no prices are listed outside. Also cash only!) I think our halo halo one ended up being around $14? So kind of steep for shave ice.The halo halo was super good!! The pudding on top is a great contrast of sweetness to the ice & ube ice cream. There’s also a lot of texture in the rice krispies, and jelly they had. Overall really good bingsoo-like shave ice.
So incredibly good and the sweetest people working there! 11/10 on the ube ice cream + custard on top, this is the perfect treat for a summer day
I came here many years ago with my cousin and forgot about this place until I recently saw it pop up on my Facebook. I immediately had my boyfriend take me here for our next date day. It's located inside the shopping plaza on the second floor with ample parking. You can't miss this small eatery, there's a line waiting outside! Due to covid, there isn't dine in, but there is public seating around the area. We just took it back to the car and ate it in there away from the hustle and bustle. There is definitely a lot more items on the menu now than there was 6 years ago, but I still chose the same one. Was it as good as I remember it? YES. The milk shave ice was nice and light and not overpowered. The pudding was perfect. It was flavorful and sweet and eggy enough. I would have stolen my boyfriends one too if he didn't finish his before me. For $9, this wasn't too bad. Definitely not something I can enjoy everytime on a whim, but a nice little treat every once in a while especially during this heat.
The line is worth it Love the unique toppings at ice garden! The custard is absolutely creamy and refreshing on top of their shaved ice. The menu can be a little confusing - mostly confusing on how to customize any of their existing menu items, but don't worry about it, they make it happen. The server we had was a little quiet which made ordering a bit difficult but aside from that we waited in line for 20 minutes and got our refreshing treat soon after. They are cash only so you have to be prepared.
Ice Garden has been a part of me and my wife's lives for over 17 years because it was our go-to spot after I'd pick her up from school up the street at Aiea High. The routine would be, lunch at Aiea bowl then Ice Garden for desserts. Oh the memories! We loved ice garden not only for their yummy shave ice the two old ladies that had owned and ran the place before moving on recently. They were the hardest working individuals that actually played a key role on how my wife and I live our lives, that is to do what you love to do in life as your job so work is never stressful. I would always ask the two ladies if they were tired and they would say yes but they love what they do. Ok back to the shave ice. They have a large variety of flavors that you can think of. We usually keep our orders simple, for as long as their is ice cream, pudding, mochi balls and condensed milk we will eat it with any shave ice flavor. I would recommend going before the lunch time rush if you don't want to stand in the hot sun for lunch. Since covid their indoor seating is not available. There are some outside seating around the corner outside of Koa Pancake house near the escalators.
So delicious and a great price
First timer here! I think I have been living under a rock because I'm not sure why I haven't heard of this place sooner. It's seriously so good, especially during these hot summer days. I parked downstairs of the Aiea shopping center where I found a lot of empty stalls. After just a quick escalator ride up to the second floor and a turn around the corner, I found Ice Garden! It's such a cute little shop I actually almost missed it. The flan really caught my eye so I decided on the #7. It has pudding, milk shave ice, and mochi balls. I wasn't sure how I would feel about the milk shave ice but it was incredible! I can't wait to come back to try out more of their flavors. Even with a handful of people in front of me, service was super quick. It's cash only and a little bit pricier ($9) than other places I usually go to but so worth it!
Wish I found out about this place sooner on my Hawaii trip because it's so good!!! The ice melts in your mouth and there were no chunky parts, which I loveee. I got the passion fruit and guava flavors with cream on it, and the flavors were delicious, but if I could come back again, I would get #7. I tried my friend's and wow... speechless. I didn't think flan would go with shaved ice but it does surprisingly. I recommend getting #7 because you can't find something like that at other shaved ice places!
6/9/21 Delicious shave ice. The photos that they've posted showed the many flavors and styles of shave ice that they had. I had a hard time deciding as it was my first visit. I finally chose #10- Root Beer Ice Cream Shave Ice. Great root beer flavor! This is a busy place but the line moves quickly. Around the corner there are some tables and benches to sit on while you eat your treat. Four stars only for the price, as it's a bit expensive for the amount that you get.
Had the #13 (rainbow with mochi balls), no distinct flavor just uber sweetness. Wasn't really a fan, but the other stuff on their menu looked cool/interesting to try
You have to be careful .my wife ordered a #13 by the pitcher of it... but it turned out to be less on it than the pitcher
This is a hidden gem! Ice garden is the best shaved ice spot on the island. With a ton of unique flavors, there is a shaved ice option for everyone.
?✋?? this place omg, it’s sooo good. first off there’s always most likely a line but it’s really worth it. I had only been to this place twice and never regretted it. It’s almost like a hold in the wall type of place but it’s not the hard to find, it’s right next to the rabbit rabbit tea place or whutever. The wait isn’t too long but not the fastest but tbh, there is most likely only two or one person in there working so cut up some slack. I promise you you’ll love this place. All a mix of really good shaved ice with a huge variety of flavors and toppings. I kinda forgot what I had gotten but it had some flan and white tapioca underneath. Again so good!!!
This is our new favorite go to for shave ice!! Mochi balls are the best!! Good amount given. Not too much and not too little!! Literally a hole in the wall shop!!
