We had a great time eating our ice cream that has just been frozen with liquid nitrogen in front of you. Their where a rang of flavours changing weekly and lots of wonderful toppings. I bought a tube of white power that you add too drinks to make them fizzy. It may have been £9 for the two of us... More

Having an ice-cream at Chin Chin Labs was the best ice-cream experience that I've ever had! Although the ice-cream was a little expensive, it was probably the nicest that I've ever had, so it was certainly worth the price. I also found the scientific atmosphere of the shop rather brilliant!

Having struggled to find this little shop, despite asking several people, including the town crier (shame on you), no-one could give me directions. so if you go to Camden town, walk straight ahead until you reach Camden lock, turn left into the market and the shop is on the left. I thought it would be good, but it was amazing,... More

I only wish this place was a little bigger, and less crowded so that we don't feel rushed. Let's face it, the attraction here is the process. However, it's great fun to see how the ice cream is made. And the ice cream is delicious. Ever since I visited, I have been wondering how much these guys can capitalise on... More

The baked white chocolate tastes great as a topping. Their special this time was white chocolate icecream with caramelised potato crisps, which was amazing and different. You go... More

Have been here a few times – very tasty ice cream, and very fun to watch them make it! You get one 'scoop' of ice cream and one topping for £3.95. My advice – go for vanilla ice cream. It is one of the best I've had! I've had the seasonal specials (rhubarb crumble, hay milk caramel, the 'candy corn',... More

As an "ice cream palor", they know their stuff, or at least the staff I talked to knows their stuff... I've been here two times, and all I can conclude is this. Ice cream is really smooth, but choose your topping wisely, as well as your favour. (I guess that applies everywhere you go?) Anyway, my experience. First time we... More

Interesting to watch the ice cream being made, and it was delicious. 4 flavors a day, but different ones each day.
