“Great Ice Cream in Phuket”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

The ice cream is really nice at this place. Is it as good as it is hyped up about? Probably not. Vanilla bean Ice Cream nice but yeah...
Would I go here again. Sure would. But would rave on about it. Very nice ice cream palour

“Not that good really.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Went here with high hopes as it is purportedly the best ice cream in Phuket. It may well be, I can't say, but compared to ice cream outside of Phuket it was very average. The solid flavours (Chocolate, Strawberry) were not very good and with a slightly unpleasant texture. The vanilla, despite looking like it was full of vanilla bean, was tasteless and the texture was awful, much like the slightly gluey composition that ice cream gets when it has been slightly defrosted and refrozen. I'm not saying this is what happened; just that the texture was similar to this.
I really wanted to like this place, so went back another 2 times, just in case I'd caught them on a bad day, but was disappointed each time. The mixed flavours were better than the "solid" ones, eg the cherry had a very nice taste, complete with a lovely bit of sourness, but there just wasn't enough of it incorporated into the ice cream, so you often had mouthfulls with no flavour. And before the owner questions my bona fides, I come from Melbourne, so know what good ice cream is. I've had it from excellent vendors, at 5 star restaurants, and have even made it myself. This may be the best ice cream on offer in Phuket, but it's very much sub par compared to the best back home.
Only had the ice cream in cones/cups, so can't comment on the fancy stuff.

Dear Customers/ Reviewers- sorry but I do not understand what is your intention! You say you come 3 times to our shop and it was always tasteless, awful, unpleasant, - but you never complained with my staff or my manager- you never ask for change- which we do without question if a customer is not happy with his/her choice. Or ask for extra topping as you obviously like more cherries than other people etc. But you go back home to write a review it was not according to your liking?!
Dear value customers and readers - please tell us in our shop right away when you not happy with our service and we promise to exchange on site into a happy experience. 6 days later on the internet- sorry nothing we can do about that.
And back to gocdawrold- well I just wonder if you eat ice-cream in 5star places in Melbourne but have only take away in 40deg. hot Thailand and you surprised to find a different texture of ice-cream- and eating a cherry variegate but cannot detect that the sourness of the "mouthful of no flavor" comes from real yogurt. well..... I have studied how to make authentic Italian Gelato in Bologna/ Italy (not Australia)- and we are producing homemade- all natural premium quality Gelato fresh every day for over 5000 happy customers/ Month with more than 50% of it repeaters (also from Melbourne)- sorry we could not make you happy too.

“Lovely ice cream, cute waitress outfits”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

This place is a little hard to find as it's not on one of the main streets, but if you can find it, definitely try the ice cream, it's creamy delicious, lots of flavours to choose from. The waitresses outfits are a cute idea as well. They give free samples if you can't decide, eat in or takeaway available.

“Great ice cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013 via mobile

Stumbled across this ice cream place one really hot and sunny day and we remembered that it had really good reviews in TA so decided to go in and sit. We ordered a waffle to share the ice cream was great but the waffle could be a miss.. Nice little place with waitresses in French maid outfits.. Will try other items on the menu next time
