A bit of fun but also some high quality! I had a burnt butter caramel cookiewich and it was delicious! Not an ice crystal in sight. Coffee also good. Very small shop but very intimate and a nice place just to chill. Not too expensive either. Give it a go!

Ok, my judgment cannot be partial as I'm so in love with Camden Lock and all the stores there. Anyway, I digress... So chin chin, in short that ice cream is the supercalifragisticexpialidocious of the ice cream, it tastes so good that it will brainwash you into forgetting the taste of ice cream and trying it for the first time...

We visited Camden to sample some of the awesome food and were not disappointed. Chin Chin ice cream is tasty, and the cookies were even better! Stop by here and try for your self! I can't leave a review here without mentioning the staff as well. They were awesome and extremely friendly!

I love hot chocolate and after reading about Chin Chin labs online, I'd decided to give it a go. The hot chocolate is very thick and I wasn't sure if the marshmallow on top was going to be too much. It ended up complementing the hot chocolate quite well because it isn't sweet by itself. Someone before me order it... More

Amazing experience !! The ice cream is very tasty and you can watch how is done ... the whole process. Its liquid nitorgen and not the regular ice cream. You can choose form a great variety of toppings. The nearest metro station is Camden Market . We ask for the chocolate one with some hazelnuts ... yum yum !!

We tried the chocolate ice cream with hazelnut sand - it was awesome with a really smooth texture. The hazelnut was a good accompaniment. Will definitely be back to try the more extravagant flavours (there was a beetroot special).

For us, with 3 children, quite expensive, but lots of fun and very tasty! Great music and fantastic toppings.

Great ice cream, even on a pretty cold day! Situated near the Camden lock bridge there are plenty of places to find a spot to sit and enjoy. There are a few seats inside the shop but it's quite small... Most of the room being taken up by the cool nitro ice cream machinery. Well worth the visit. Younger or... More

We were staying close to the Camden area and had heard about this ice-cream place from a friend. The place was absolutely packed. After a short wait, we got served the most delicious, creamy and flavourful ice-creem we've ever had. This is the future of ice-cream folks because the liquid nitrogen method allows you to have ice-cream that has not... More

Unbelievable flavours and great fun to visit Camden locks & watch them play with liquid nitrogen! Only criticism is that I would have liked bigger portions. The place is tiny and very quirky. I wonder if soon they will be branching out or moving to a bigger venue. If so please could the consider Birmingham? The old Custard Factory in... More
