I went to this place after hearing a lot about this place. I had very high expectations of this place when I reached there. Its a small ice cream joint, with a fairly deja vu menu. I opted for a GadBud. The Icecream tasted very average - the combination was great though. I did not particularly like the taste of... More

No matter what, Ideal's (and pabba's) is one place I never miss to visit when I am in Mangalore city. Have been tasting their numerous ice creams since more than 15 years and the taste and magic just gets better! To me this is worlds best place for ice creams! Just look at the picture of ice cream in menu... More

Wonderful options and Reasonable price The best options to try are Gadbad and Dilkush, these being the specialty of Mangalore Also Try Tiramisu, Chocolate daddy, Dry Fruit cocktail and Green Apple flavored slabs The ambience is simple, not too extravagant There are many outlets across Mangalore Now even Pabba's is a subsidy of Ideal Ice Cream with the same menu,...

If you are in Mangalore, you must shop at Hampankatta Market; and after the s have done shopping have tons of ice cream at Ideals. Far away from the frightfully expensive and mundane ice cream parlours of Mumbai, you have a very basic joint that serves honest ice creams and just that. Not a very vast menu, but there is... More

Best place for ice-creams in mangalore..A must try for all visiting mangalore and the place is situated in a busy traffic area and parking is nearly impossible near the parlour. Highly recommend the classical gadbad, parfait, dilkush and the kulfis here... They also offer take-aways and the service, ambience and price is good!

This is the one stop for all your ice cream cravings! Their ice creams are undoubtedly the best in Mangalore. Two of my favourites are their kulfies and gadbad. Even though the parlour is spacious, it can still get pretty crowded and congested because of the huge rush round-the-clock but it is worth it!
