One may become nostalgic if you went back to Mangalore after years! They still maintain the flavour, the special taste and the place.... I wonder why they don't go to the malls which are mushrooming there. But people don't mind to visit Ideal wherever they are!

Idea of the huge ice ream parlor was Nearly unimaginable until i visited ideal. they have a wide variety of made instant mix ice cream. If you are in mangalore for any kinda visit i would suggest that you have to visit ideal ice cream parlor and try one of the ice creams. Chocolate Dad have always been my favorite.

Gadbad!!! Have you heard of it? The actual gadbad happens here in Mangalore. I have been traveling across the world and yet to find one ice cream manufacturer who can match Ideal. If it is Mango, you will get real mango flavor. So precise in taste and flavoring. I even tried their Jackfruit ice cream. So neat and so tasty.... More

The parlour was very big like a restaurant. The ice cream was just average. It was like any other ice cream we had. One thing was that it was not very expensive.

I have never seen so much crowd at an ice cream place. This place is huge, it seats at least 60 people but still there is a huge line outside. Their famous "gadbad" ice cream is fantastic.

once you taste this ice cream you will probably keep it in your programme list for your next visit to Mangalore. each time you will try a new flavour only to retry and re visit. All fresh, hygienic and made of Ideal's own milk dairy. Tastes better h\than famous brands both national and international. leaves no after taste, the scourge... More
